...Today we were working in the kitchen of a pizzeria, and in executing our task...{to bring up 2 20amp feeds for some quad receptacles}..(GFI protected of coz),..I moved a plug-in xfrmr that was on the floor to get it outta my way, and a LEGION of big,fat roaches scattered in 10,000 directions...{They must have been nesting there,cause of the heat of the x-frmr},I jumped out of the way,grabbing my tool bag,as I did the "cockroach dance" and made a bee-line for the door....yukkkkkkk!! and to think my wife and I USED to eat there...never again tho'........

AR:

That's a real gross-out, though not very uncommon, unfortunately.

If you visit NYC, you can check here before you eat [Linked Image]

Restaurants are the worst!

The local cafe called one day, the chicken fryer was down. When I removed the cover the control box was 100% full of lard.....and yes I cleaned it out and repaired the problem.

The cleanest restuarants are the fast food chains. No one else comes close.

We used to have the service contract at all the local KFC's. I saw my little friends in everyone of the them. Needless to say I have never eaten at KFC since.

What is it about roaches and electrical appliances and components? They love hanging around that stuff.

Then again...what is it about NEW YORK CITY and roaches in general? ACK....

Hmm...qopanel, I wonder if you just discovered one of Kentucky Fried Chicken's secret "spices"..... [Linked Image]

Up here in Canada is no hunny either, especially in the China Towns.... I dread the calls the most.

Ok, the quick in/out jobs are tollerable (kinda) but a new service in a Vietnamese restaurant leaves me retching with the aging fish, fresh slautered (various) animals and guts all over the floor, not to mention critters of unknown origins.

Gimme an attic over this anyday, lol..

sven i would guess the heat would attract them. Are you sven weil from rec.antiques.radio+phono? Roaches and other insects like old tube radios i think because of the heat available there.

Sparked:

Yep. One and the same. Funny how the roach topic also has shown up here....I'm still reeling from my aunt's roach-filled ghetto-blaster that she had asked me to look at last week.
