In the customers home

I've been in a home where the freezer is filled to the brim with--pot.
Not my business. Customer is polite/respectful. They enjoy their weed---I enjoy my smokes and occassional beer.
They don't cause others trouble---nor do I.
I had a guy that was in his 60s---smoke *crack* right in front of me.
He paid his bill in cash---this was in a "bad" part of town.
I felt sorry for his addiction---but he was NOT a problem customer.
I get more problems from "white collar" customers with checks that bounce like a rubber ball and credit cards that are declined. Go figure.
L-O-N-G cycle times
Suds error message
Slow spin speeds
Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)
And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.
The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:
HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon
Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.
Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

It goes both ways, though. Working on a freezer full of Mother Nature that isn't affecting you in any way is different from working in a roomful of second hand smoke. I've been in exactly same situation and learned to take a different tack. I tell the customer, in a jovial tone, "If you're gonna smoke, I'm gonna have to ask you for a beer-- it's the only way I can handle the smoke." (True statement, BTW) The situation resolves in one of two ways: they supply me with a beer, which I happily swill while working on their appliance or they put out the cigarette/leave the room. All amicably done and in a way that retains the customer.
