What's everyone take on jobs that are infested with roaches, rats, mice, etc?

I had a call on a dishwasher today. I pulled it out and there was a small army of cockroaches behind and around it. I stopped, showed the lady it was infested and i had to stop (company policy and state law prohibit techs from working around pests). The lady started smashing them left and right, but they kept coming. I went out to my truck to make the appropriate phone calls and she called me back in. The husband was sitting his fat a$$ on a stool and told me in broken English to get to work. They're just bugs. I told him i couldn't, then the F bombs came flying at me. He called me a baby, a little girl and then a f@g. So, I left. I don't get paid enough to deal with a-holes like that, and i don't get paid enough to work around disgusting roaches. Yuk.

It is rare but I have had it happen. I politely say I have to order the parts and inform the office that I will not be going back. I had a lady spray roaches with alcohol. They were bathing in it, did not phase them. Gross.

Went on a maytag gas range with DSI .Would not bake .A rat had chewed thru the wire that went to the igniter from the DSI module .Rat droppings everywhere .This place was also infested with flies .When I took the side panel off to route the new wire there was all kinds of broken eggs jammed in that area.The guy was nice to me and very appreciative .Felt kinda sad for the old horder. Told me had no-one in the world that was family since his mother died a number of years back .Used lots of hand cleanser on that call.

Seriously, I have seen more cock roaches in a customers refrigerator at one time than I've ever seen in my house over the last twenty five years. Now that's sad! I refuse to work in that or "nasty" conditions". I don't get paid enough. Well, actually I do, but I'm still not. :2funny:
