since my last post of the cockroach story I thought I would share some of the bizzare stories out in the field. 16 years of doing this I have TONS of them. each one better than the last. Hot summer day and this lady has a Whirlpool refrigerator out in the garage. Symptoms are NO refrigeration, you hear a click, lights dim then a few seconds later another click and the light in the frige becomes bright again. Sure sign the compressor is kicking off on overload, thing is 18 years old... not worth fixing HOWEVER you cant just tell a customer that so you have to go through the motions of pulling it out from the wall, take the back cover off and check it with a meter and what not. I proceed to pull the unit, take the cover off and what do I see? A snake wrapped around the compressor. Hmm. so I cover it back up and push it back to the wall. So I tell the lady. "I have bad news and I have worse news. First of all you have a bad compressor" she says "OK , I'll just buy a new one" I said "OK well this is where the worse news comes in, When they come to take it away, you may want to warn the guys to beware of the snake wrapped around the compressor." She was actually cool with it. She says that she gets them all the time.... WHAT THE FUH? People are funny.

Have you ever banged a bored housewife who called you out to fix her fridge? Or does that stuff only happen in porno movies?

No. never got in to it... you gotta see me to understand why not. I did have this HOT 23 year old blonde answer the door once stoned off her ass wearing nothing but a flannel shirt and panties... shirt was totally unbuttoned. Then I did have this one customer start giving me a back rub and invited me over for dinner after work. Never took her up on it because I was engaged at the time. A month later my fiancee breaks up with me. CRAP.

I recently had a call for a leaking vacume breaker on a commercial garbage disposal. (Nice eaterie.) Everytime they turned it on, water sprayed out. Took it apart and there was a cockroach under the valve, slightly thinner than originally. Removed the deceased and deposited him on a napkin in front of the owner (female) sitting at the bar. The response was priceless! I often find rodent bodies stopping a condenser fan. Treat them in similar fashion. Gotta know your customer though!!
