flirting with broken arms or??????
we had a wealthy rezzie customer that i did a clean & check for , ok , routine boring job , got the invoice signed & off the clock on my way out the door she says could you please fix the cord on my washing machine?? "mam , i say politely , i'm off the clock and on my way to my next call" Oh don't worry i'll just pay u it won't take long , ok not to offend a long time customer . well , it was a pita job , now i'm behind sch. & fer sure missing lunch to make it up. she smiles at me and says "sorry , i don't have any money" i didn't care about the money but the way she said it and smiled and said it meaning you like it or not , tough!!! I read her out good and left steaming , being too young to have learned the fine art of tactfulness. when i related this story to another tech he looked at me and made the sign of the cross at me and said i should find a priest for the last rites as her husband was the current head of the chicago mafia that nobody told me ahead of time.. had me watching my back for a long time :couchhide:
