    Best description of a problem by a homeowner!

    Had a neighbor of a call i was at yesterday walk up to me as i was checking the charge on a system and ask to come to her house next door. I responded with "not a problem, let me check in with dispatch and double check but should be ok". I asked what she had goin on and she request that i DOUCHE OUT her pipes. LMFAO. I did not know how to respond. I just stared at her for a second and asked her to please repeat her self. Then she says it again. It took all i had in me not to laugh. You guys had any good ones this summer?

    Sounds like a customer one of our guys had the other night. He's trying to sell her a Tappan heat pump. She wasn't fired up about buying a Tampon. She did have a foreign accent!

    So what do you guys charge for Freezone?

    The trouble today is the electric company using that cheap recycled electricity.

    Ya can't get there from here.

    Cheap Recycled electricity makes the world go round.

    I am still waiting to hear if the lady was good looking enough and if he did actually douche her pipes lol.

    Got a call about the A/C not working when the power was out. (We need to start installing those units that don't run off electricity)

    Just a couple of the classic answering the door in their bra and panties, or the long bed time t-shirt with a thong underneath. No funny comments from any customers yet this year.

    I had a nice looking brunette around 25 or so open the door wearing just a pair of panties and a dress shirt not buttoned up with no bra on open the door about a month ago. Nice breasts. She said come on in and I said I would feel more comfortable if she dressed up a little more (liability issue you know). She just smiled and shrugged her shoulders. I went in anyways...

    I dont know why.... but the company I work for uses the pro5000 tstats... ( I love em...) but installs the batteries in them. I dont know if its the installer or if its policy..... but we always install the common wire.
    So.... whats funny is when you get a service call for ac not cooling and you get to the house and find out they have no power.... (but because the display is up due to batteries... they think they have an AC problem!)

    It's also a problem when the float switches cut out the 24V and the batteries keep the stat on. I like for the stat to blank out when the safety switches hit it. It's much easier to diagnose via phone.
