went to a customers home for a no bake in oven complaint
checked oven, needed thermostat, called part store for availability and summoned customer from the other room
told lady of the house " i dont have your part, but it is available in town, i can come back tomorrow with it.
lady "shushes" me and says wait here....
comes back with a folded up 20 dollar bill and says... " this is for you if you tell my husband it will take 2 weeks to get the part, he has taken me out for dinner every night since it broke"
i controled myself and said" for the best line ever, you can keep the 20 and i'll tell him one week"
she said "ok... but keep the 20"
names changed to protect the innocent
