Am I the only one who gets people that have their voicemail recording with the customer reciting bible verses? They always sound creepy because I have no clue what they are even saying lol. It throws me for a loop.

The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

 

 

For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel.

 

 

Why, no, whatever do you mean?

Haha. I'm telling you these messages make me fear for my life after I hear their voicemails. They sound like something out of a horror movie. Then I get there and it's some nice old lady.

If the messages are too long and there is no way to bypass them... I have been known to simply hang up. I dont want to hear 10 minutes of  rap nor rapture.

Some are loving...

"God Loves You"
"Jesus Died For You"
"Love Your Neighbor"

Others are fire & brimstone...

"You'll BURN IN HELL,DAMNATION!"
"If you do not follows God's words---to the very letter!!!"
"Now donate as much as you can to our temple---so that we may ALL be saved!"

I'll take the first one:)
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

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"

I hate it when they say call ahead to meet them  and I get their voicemail or the voicemail is full.  I have been burned so many times by that, I go and do another call. If they don't call back, it's their problem, not mine.

or the person was too lazy to even set up their mailbox, or they gave you a wrong number, or someone picks up and has no idea what is supposed to be repaired or why...

Or worse, you get to the house, fix the appliance for the tenant downstairs and then when telling the tenant your're done and you'll go upstairs to collect payment from landlord, you realize the landlord heard the conversation and literally bolts down the stairs and takes off in her car. Then when you call she doesn't answer, but replies via text saying "I never authorized you to fix that, I'm not paying you a thing".....had that happen. felt bad for the tenant, but informed her that I would be taking my ignitor back and she should really consider moving away from that arse...now I always bring the landlords into the unit I'm servicing unless its one I trust and know well..........those are the days you want to rip things up :pint1:

Landlord -- tenant situations require obtaining payment information in advance, it that isn't possible, then the call is cancelled. Even so, we STILL get burned. Landlords who won't give you the tenant's phone number and you find no one home.

Landlords that will authorize a repair, but won't answer the phone after the job has been completed.

 

I also love the calls that say call in advance, their address can't be found on GPS nor a map, and they don't answer the phone... Automatic cancelled call!

With LL Tnt situations, the landlord must call us, give the contact not for the tenant, and a credit card auth for our job average, $191.00, if they won't pre-authorize, then the can call someone else...

.

Job average including warranty is $183.00.

My "favorites" are the ones who have the call waiting music/muzak when you call in "Please enjoy this ringback tone while your party is reached..." followed by tinny midi classical music or some god awful part of some song placed at ear-piercing levels. Worse than the voice mails for sure...

 

I get a lot of bible-thumping voice mails around here though myself. Bible belt and all. And tons of christian custom license plates, e.g., PRZEHIM, BLSDONE, GVETHKS, etc. 

 

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. So leave your Christian message at the beep and praise Gawd and have a truly blessed Christian day!"

I don't leave messages for people that leave "have a blessed day" or anything godly at the end of their voicemail. I've been burned in the past too many times by bible thumpers. Last one was a real gem. And by gem I mean complete fn pain in the ass. Preacher or something at a church. Lying mfer, asked when I'd put the check through so he could be sure he puts money in the account to cover it, wanted me there at 4, not between usual times,and at 4 and he wasn't even there and his 19 year old wouldn't let me in till he got there. Just a complete pain in the ass. Didn't get burned just aggravated for a few days having to deal with him. Not worth the extra effort.
