    Five minutes before the office leaves for the day they call me out for a no cool. I get all set and head out to the call, arrive to the home and get a puzzled look on the home owners face. We didn't call, as you can see our a/c is fine. Call back to the service and sure enough I am at the right address. Came back home and figured that was the easiest on call pay I ever recieved.

    some one called and some one got the wrong address - you will be going out sometime later or some one will try to give you an ear full on monday.

    Any way I didnt know Janators were on call

    What's wrong with someone that can fix your a/c AND your toilet??? I'd think that's a plus....
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    I'll jump in on this with another story that happened to one of our other guys this week while on call.

    12:45 AM

    Lady; My sump pumps not working and the water is coming up in my basement


    Guy: Will cost you $XXX, You sure you want me to come out?


    Lady; Yes, come on out


    Guy: Ok, Is your number out on your mailbox?


    Lady: Yes, I'd turn the light on for you but my electricity is off.

    (long pause)


    Guy: Your electricity is off?


    (long pause)

    Lady: Do you have a generator?




    Guy: "click"
