Some of you may remember from my previous blog post, that the seagull is one of the biggest foes of the HVAC technician, truly a vicious dive-bombing menace. In our last story, one clever technician devised a strategy to distract the gulls so that he could work on the rooftop units. Some techs never even get a sporting chance…
Before even making it fully onto the roof, Paul our poor unsuspecting technician, sustained a gull-related head laceration while still on the ladder of the roof hatch. Just as his head crested the roof, a waiting sniper-gull came from behind and beaked him, leaving him with a terrible headache and a tiny bald spot to remember him by.
We believe this gull to be a mercenary gull, hired out by lesser gulls to protect their territory. It is said that this sniper-gull has portions of the scalps of over 100 technicians lining his nest. If you see him, please do not try to apprehend.
So, after the third bout in the battle Nature vs. the HVAC Technician, the score stands at Nature 3, Technicians 0. Better luck next time boys!
