    Talking

    Anyone else get freaked out when a late night service call comes in and you have to walk out to the service truck. I think my wife wakes up just to watch me run to the truck, unlock it, jump in and lock the door.

    Maybe she's locking the front door behind you ...and unlocking the back door.
    How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

    This one apartment complex we were working on had some lovely basements (horror movie style).

    None had a light switch to them, you had to fumble around for the string attached to the socket. After trying the 1st 2 (closest to the stairs), I started heading towards the back, arm aimlessly waiving above my head in hopes of finding a string. Now I'm not totally a spook, but thoughts do cross your mind from time to time. Never know, there could be some homeless person down there not expecting me either.

    Anyway, I'm almost to the light (guessing) and a hear a little girl start laughing really loud. Man, I never found a light so fast in my life! Turns out it was in the basment next door, but it took a lil break to get my heart slowed down!

    A few years ago, 2 co workers were doing a furnace changeout at a house. This house had all kinds of satanic stuff in it.

    After they fired the furnace up, he wanted to go around the house checking the registers, ETC.

    Well, he had to get up onto the second floor, where no one lived. The HO said there was no way to get up there from inside the house, and he needed to go outside to the back door of the 2nd floor. Well, he went up there, and the door was blocked by an old dishwasher. He moved it and got in, to see just piles of garbage strewn all over. Now no one used this 2nd floor, but there was a kerosene space heater, running in the middle of the floor.

    He yelled "HELLO!" and someone inside there answered! "HELLO?" he said he never ran so fast in his life! He told the other guy on the job to move his truck from behined his or he was going over it. He left and never went back LOL
