Another entry in our “Customers From Hell” sweepstakes. This one from Greg Paterson. Enjoy.
“In the 70s, when I was an apprentice, a roommate’s brother asked if I would wire up his new furnace humidifier. I agreed and showed up after work the next day.
His wife insisted I have supper. Spareribs in a black sauce were served. She forgot napkins so quickly fetched a roll of toilet paper! After supper I went to the basement to find that the humidifier was still in the box and the furnace was surrounded with dirty laundry.
I began the installation.the husband came down the stairs and ask me to watch their two kids while he and his wife went to an Amway meeting (I was pissed). I finished the humidifier installation in a couple of hours then waited with their two unruly kids until they got home at 11 pm. When they arrived home I stormed out.
That night around 3 am my guts began to boil and for the next few hours Montezuma had his revenge!
I missed work the next day, losing a day’s wages.
The guy never did pay me.”
