    No- this is a know it all customer-I want the customer to order all my parts. I really like it when they use their own logic. This is too funny-thanks for posting.

    I found this on craigslist and posted it in the WOS to show how customers think they can dictate how we are to do every aspect of our job. And then when their Removed direct buy link POS Goodman craps out and they want warranty service, you're on the hook to tell them the great news about buying HVAC equipment online.

    Maybe when your get your post count up you will be more familiar with our flavor of humor.

    Only pipes have stretchers. But I still haven't found it in the back of my truck since a senior tech told me he needed it.

    Same ol' s*b who asked me when how often I oiled down my oxygen tanks.

    U guys are really cute when a guy's first startin' out..

    Usually, if I need that, it's "that mofo'er" to the helper.
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    "Just get it done son."

    Dad adjusted

    I always wanted to start another company where I would do all the negotiating and then at the day of the installation all dress like Rastafarians. I just kind of think it might be fun to every once in a while do a completely terrible job.

    Many years ago (I never call price shoppers back) I was called in for a heating quote. The customer was pretty upfront concerning pricing, kind of over the top actually.

    At one point completely worn out by this guy I said "So price is the only consideration?" He said yes, the ONLY consideration. My reply was "Ok, we can do the complete heating install for $1000".

    He stopped and looked very confused, telling me that was $2000 cheaper then anyone else had bid, and he knew the heater cost $1200. I told him I could do the job for that price but I would have to install a heater that fell off the loading dock, and pick up a few installers from the Home Depot parking lot. He then said no F'ing way is he going for that. So price is not the ONLY consideration?

    He signed a contract, but later stopped payment on the check because a guy told him on the phone he would cut $500 off my price. And that is why I don't bother calling these guys back anymore.

    I am pretty sure memoe was not human but a computer virus. IF he was some kids grandpa there is a serial killer in the making...it was like watching one of those newscasters that had a brain scramble and gibberish comes out their mouths.

    I mean REALLY?

    By the way, when approached by clowns like this I reply with "Come down to (my competitors) place of business and we'll discuss ways to make it totally free! Bring a pumpkin or any type of gourd in for trade!
