I go a few days without a call, then I get a few, & sometimes I get a weeks worth in a day.   I have never had a day like today.   Have not had a job other than telephone repairs for last few days.  Going into big city for personal business early this morning when I get a call about a warm refer in an RV.     Make an appointment for 1 pm.    Have a mother of  my wife's friend wanting me to hang a new light over her sink a block away so I scheduled it for afterwards.

 

Get to the RV & have to condemn 10 cu ft whirlpool that was installed a year ago in the RV.       Not there 15 minutes, tell customer that it is not worth doing seale system work as a unit that small can be purchased for about $350.   He asks me to buy one for him.   I tell him I will stop by Lowes & shop one for him But he has to come purchase it after he gets off of work.  I would come back in the evening & help pull the old one out & install new one.   I show him How to do it.

 

He gives me $30 on the spot for my time.   I go & do the light hang, charge $65 for 15 minutes work, get paid $90.    Go to Lowes do my business, needed some supplies anyway.

 

Get a call for an icemaker that is leaking, make that call turns out a frozen defrost drain, simple top freezer whirlpool with nothing in the freezer & unit on a tile floor.   Piece of cake job not much ice & unit just came out of a defrost cycle.   $150 clear money & very satisfied customer, vacuumed condenser while I was there.

 

I am 5 minutes from RV job, call and say I'm coming.    Arrive & find the dude already has the condemned one on ground outside & new unit installed.   He is so appreciative for my service (Did Not really do anything)   He gives me a $100 bill.

 

$370 clear for less than 20 miles windshield time & 3 hours Max.    I like days like this,  Not a record revenue day, nice nonetheless.  Kinda makes up for the 2nd trip days.

Two foxes talking after raiding the hen house.  One fox asks "How did you do today"?  The other fox replies, "Well, somedays it's chicken, other days it's feathers".

 

Glad you had a "chicken" day, Brother Patricio!
