    Ex called for service

    So, we just got our first hot spell in Southern Nevada.

    I get a phone call while I've got my hands full with a toilet that is getting ready to fall through someone's floor. Of course their AC isn't working either. It would have been nice if they asked me to fix the AC first, but oh well.

    Anyway, my ex-girlfriend who left last Fall is on the phone and asks if I can come fix her AC. The landlord for the dump she moved into wasn't getting it fixed fast enough.

    Sorry, I'm busy and I can't help you. For one thing you are an hour and a half away.

    Second, you chose to be hot and sweaty with someone else. So, enjoy it!😎

    If I had a license to work in Clark County, I would have asked her to have the landlord call me, but she knows I don't do any work outside of Nye County, or even outside of Pahrump.

    Pretty sure she wasn't asking for a regular service call. More than likely an evening visit with a little tit for tat thrown in. lol

    Do you guys have state licenses...
    Or is it state + local???

    We have a state HVAC license...
    We used to have county and city licenses on top of that, called 'contracting licenses'...
    That went away a few years before the olympics came to town.

    I’d drive by and check the unit out. Of course I fell for n love with every girl I ever dated, so don’t take my advice to serious.

    I would go check it out. Might be just a loose wire...

    There can be County and local business licenses required.

    State contractor's license first, then you might have additional jurisdictions.

    Actually, the one thing she might have learned from me is "no means no". I introduced her to the concepts presented by Gavin DeBecker in The Gift of Fear.

    I have I installed a Goodman product, but never an Amana. At least I felt the fireworks each time.
