Customer was anal about doing laundry
« on: May 03, 2013, 07:30:34 AM »

I recently went to a customer's house to service their dryer that didn't heat.  As soon as I walked into the laundry room, I was surprised to find 2 sets of washers and dryers.  I asked the customer why she has 2 sets and she responded, "I'm really anal about doing laundry and I didn't want to be without a washer or dryer so I bought 2 sets just in case one didn't work, I would have the other as a back up."  Plus her whole family use their backyard pool at least 3 times a day so there are a lot of towels to wash. 


The whole house is immaculate.


Man, I wish I had this life.   :)

Cool, never seen a side by side set up like that.
Have been in a few homes that have laundry rooms set up on two different floors of the house.

Seen side by side dishwashers in a home once.

There's a house up in Blackhawk that has 4 Maytag Neptune Washers and 4 Neptune dryers. I had each one on my route and thought someone made a mistake. The only mistake made was I should have called in sick that day...

It's an $8.5M 5k Sq ft house with 8 car garage. I just don't understand how people can be so rich.

Me either...

Don't have any $8.5M homes around here that I know of, but I do get into some really nice lake homes every now and then.
I always like to ask them what they do or if older what they use to do for a living.

None of them have ever said they use to repair appliances for a living. :(

Did you look for coin slots?

Maybe they charge their kids to wash clothes!  I hear laundromat guys make some cash.

Personally I'd rather work for the regular workin guy than these rich dudes .Some can be pretty demanding .I guess they are used to getting things done when they snap their fingers .

Yep, except the high end stuff does pay better, take longer. Yes, I work by the hour, not the blue book.
