just cause i always post silly customer stories
« on: February 20, 2008, 11:13:46 PM »
well i always make light of silly customers so guess i better post this one

wife calls me today when she gets home and says" were you by the house for lunch today?"
i say "no, why?"
she says "cause the house smells like rotten eggs, so i thought you were cooking again"
i say"honey, turn the furnace off, call the gas company and take kids to the neighbors for a visit, natural gas smells like rotten eggs, we have a leak.... i'm on my way home"
so i get home and sure enough house smells like gas, but REAL nasty, not like the gas smell i am used to
gas company comes and does the sniffer, no leaks... gas man says"sure smells like sulfer dioxide, but this is rank, maybe its sewer gas
he leaves i check all the sewers, washer stand pipe, sinks etc.... no smell
well a lil while later some dude calls wanting to buy the mustang i have for sale, asks can you start it?  i say sure, i'll charge the battery *insert light bulb here* went down stairs under the steps and unplugged the battery charger i had on said battery for the last month :-\   that battery is definity  BRNTTOAST

I had a call something like that one day at a funeral home.
The gas company had already been there and found nothing.
The plumber had already been there and found nothing.

They call us as they think it maybe coming from there neptune washer as it alway's did smell.

Come to find out it was the water in the bottom of a flower vase that was stinking the place up.
