First reservice call in over 2 months

Woman calls rather annoyed on Wednesday that there is a yellow streak next to her bed and on the area runner directly on top of it

She can see it more in the day than night time , she tried to remove it with the spotter I left her but can't remove it


'It wasn't there before and what happens if it won't come out?" Is her concern



Go back this afternoon with Matt and it is immediately apparent what happened....


I closed the blind and it disappeared


Simply a reflection off the mirrored nightstand next to the bed


' you know it was weird" she states sheepishly " it explains why I couldn't see it AS MUCH during the evening"




'H ey stupid, choose your words carefully, you couldn't see it AT ALL during the evening "



It was a nice break during a big ticket day to show my kid that even wealthy people can be as MeAt would put it....mo-rons"

I had a similar one a few years ago. Woman had a dark area that wouldn't go away. Went over, turned the light on and the shadow disappeared, like magic.

Oh believe me, I've spent time in similar fashion removing 'window stains'


Just didn't care for her manner and tone or 'owning' her mistake after the fact



I would have tipped a service contractor if I forced them to reservice my stupidity


She can call Stanley next time for all I'm concerned

It was a little more embarrassing for me (in my defense it was probably almost thirty years ago.)

I tried for about 15 minutes to remove that stain using each and every spotter known to humankind. Finally gave up and brought her to see and apologize that I can't remove that stain.

"Would this help?" She asked and moved the chandelier :icon_redface:

Phred I'm going out on a limb now so hear me out.

I'm sensing you like his music too.

So what is YOUR favorite Barry Manilow song?
