    Should have just stayed up.

    Had a rash of storms go through. Our house didn't get hit much...

    Phone was ringing though... THROUGH THE NIGHT! :dejection:

    Last night... Carpet cleaners from... Well heck... All day and even through the night (some from other countries)

    And then people with flooded basements.

    Sorry.... We don't do water and smoke anymore....

    Passed the jobs on to Chavez.... Then remembered... He's a janitor now :biggrin: :stir:

    But seriously got to update a second directing Saiger's link. Info is saying we are doing restoration yet.... NOPE! NOT DOING IT!

    Too dang busy the way it is!

    Good problem to have.

    Yesterday I go so frustrated I had to call home and tell my wife to unforward the office phone. My phone was ringing every 5 minutes with people asking, "Can you come out and clean a recliner", or " I need my living room area rug cleaned". I did book 5 real jobs, but it got to the point where it was 104° and I just wanted to get done and go home. It's probably going to be like that again today. I just need to put my patience cap on.

    Which brings me to my next pet peeve. I hate it when I'm trying to fill out the CRM page and when I ask the customer their address, and then they immediately start rambling on directions on how to get their to their house! "Go down Vista Rd for 1/4 mile, then turn left where the old oak tree used to be......" In the meantime, I got the TM running and the prespray drying. I had this happen yesterday. I couldn't get a word in edgewise.
