That's wierd

Okay Lou what have you found in a duct so far. I have found a hat and yes I checked for company name LOL. The other day I found a pile of scrubbies when I looked down the duct. Boy they come out as well as the 4 inches of grease cicles at the bottom when I stuck the 6' er in the bottom. You should have heard the guy below. Then there was my exhaust was just cleaned but it still doesn't work well. We go look and there are a bunch of birds past the fan looking at me. The list goes on lately.

I found a frisbee with a pot leaf on it. The only thing I can think of is a company had the shroud off, found it on the roof and ooops, down it went.

I am just waiting for the time when we go out and see someone stuck in the duct work. They sure do like to rob the restaurants from the roof and find some strange ways to get in. I can see it now just staring at a pair of sneakers and then spraying some chem down the duct. I can picture it now. Man that would hurt

That happened here, but the chem didn't hurt the guy.
He had been stuck in the duct for weeks during renovation.

Fortunately the restaurant is right on the interstate so they can count on lots of non-local traffic from people who have no idea what happened.
Plus, it's Chinese so how could you tell the diference anyway?

Extra flavor!

A friend inBend sent me the newpaper story about a guy who thught the duct would be an easy way into the resturant for a robbery. The guy got stuck, and had to wait for the morning shift to show up and set him free. Turns out the fire department had to ladder the building, drop a rope down to him, then pull him up. The PD gave him free room and board. True justice would have been if he bottomed out on the link housing and tripped the fire system.

We were finishing a hood and my helper complained that his end of the grease tray was not draining. I told him to stick his finger in the hole and move the stuff out of the way. He did, but the hole kept plugging up. He reached up into the tray and found a rat, a dead rat. He just grabbed and tossed it into the trash can. The sargent about fainted. She kept asking how a rat got into the hood. Of course I had no idea, that was the first and only rodent I ever saw in a kitchen.

We did see turtles in a chinese kitchen once. Two turtles in a laundry basket. they also had small cockroaches. I think the turtles were for food, but I do not think they kept the cockroaches for food. Of course, with the chinese you never know. The same place recyled rice. you know how they serve small bowls of rice? If you did not eat the rice, they just put it on the side, and placed it on the next table.

Maybe I should make a call to the health department about the turtles and cockroaches. I could also call the cops about the after hours gambling. Or I could just wait until the yellow bastards send my last check to me and then make the phone calls. I do not want to put my last check in danger.
