  • AARRGGGG!

    I was at the bowl for 5, hours 10 lanes of Jr's and some PM time. One count um 1 dist call. I leave and a Mini PBL shock falls off of a lane I have never had any trouble with since the conversion, A chassis goes out have not had a chassis problem for months. Four lanes with adults have sever ball calls!!!!!!!!!!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/burningmad.gif[/img] What the heck! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/burningmad.gif[/img] I wish this would happen when I am there at least. Why do they work as long as I am there, unless I am eating or having a cup of coffee of course. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] I just had to bet this off of my chest!

    Pinspotters are people too they know when you leave.

      Re: AARRGGGG!

      I think it happens to all of us...I have very few calls when I'm here, but if my pinchasers are here they say they had all kinds of problems (anything more than a dist. jam or two is all kinds of problems to them )...I'm on my second full house squad of a tourney today and all I've had is one dist. jam and two respots,go figure.

        Had that with the womans city tourn. Had 6 or so reset pins because she just knows she didnt foul. About the same calls because they throw in gutter in 10th. Next bowler just go's up & throws with machine in 2nd ball. 3 or 4 off spot & want the pin put back where it started. Then you have at least 2 vanising ball tricks. 4 calls for a ball & it's not there. Finally go up front and they all point down the lane saying it's spinning in the corner.
        They see the pin wheel moving. I then show her it's on the rack and has been all along. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/icon_curse.gif[/img] [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/icon_curse.gif[/img]
        3 pile up's and a ball caught in the corner. All over 2 weekends.


        First weekend of mens city tourn. 1 pile up and 2 off spot's that needed to be reset. So far today NO calls. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

          I love the vanishing ball tricks too Old school. Bowler 1 throws then bowler two rolls their ball. Bowler two's ball comes back but bowler #1's ball is not on the rack.

          Oh it rolled to the other lane. They never do that.

          Thanks for letting me vent guys!

              Typical behavior out of a 70.

                Very typical of a 70 to say the least. They know when "Daddy" is watching and they know when the babysitter is there [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] Like they say, when the cats away all the mice come out to play :p
                All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                  That's how distributors are. You have one that is acting up a little, you sit there and watch it for what seems like days, nuthin'. You turn your back to get an out of range only two lanes away, and BOOM! All the pins are suddenly piled up. I'm telling you, THEY KNOW! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

                    Totally agree to all of the above. It's all about how you approach the job. If you have a positive mental attitude, the machines work well.

                    What annoys me is when the pinny's use the "don't know excuse" I had one leave a lane out due to a damaged pit drive belt. He claimed he didn't know how to change one. But had changed a PBL the week earlier ????

                        Yes. Yes. Yes. I agree completly with all the above. It's always when I'm not there the faults occur. I'm thinking of putting a picture up of an A-2 above my machines when I', not there to worn them this is what may happen to them if they don't behave!!

                          I used to have a six foot cardboard cut-out of Goldberg the wrestler that I would leave to babysit the problem child lane.

                            the machines are like a loving lady, they miss their TLC and they know who is on duty.Just like all ladies they know who cares.

                              They also know when you are at the other end of the building or on the roof or something. Our chassis are kinda like that. I rarely have problems with them but when I come in there will sometimes be 1 or 2 from the previous shift that worked fine for the longest time and all of a sudden went bad.
