Tales of a technician: Whats in the freezer?

Alright now, its been a minute since ive posted. I have been super busy and havent had time. This though is a story i found interesting along my work day.

I get a job put on my page to go install several things. I bebop my way out to this place ready to get it done. As I’m looking for it it’s in a small shopping center. Finally found it in the middle. I dont quite remember the name of it exactly, but i do know it said transportation.

I meet with the customer he explains where everything is going. I notice a giant walk in freezer in the back, thought it was kind of odd. I try not to ask things about stuff like that, because it is really none of my business.

A little bit into the install he explained that the camera i had just put up for him has to point at the thermostat to the freezer, it HAS to. Little bit more into me fixing everything the customer thought it was good and wanted to show me something. Naturally I followed him to the back. We get into this conversation about random stuff, then he opens the freezer.

Once he opened it up, it was one of the last things i expected to see, dead bodies…. I kid you not. I had no clue that their are companies out there that stored dead bodies. Apprently the police and funeral homes pay this guy to store them in freezers and transport them to places they request.

Now i thought that might be that due to me not wanting to talk about it anymore, but was i wrong. It made everything extremely awkward. This made the customer want to joke with locking me in the freezer, ¬†wanting to show me the bodies more and so on. One of the most uncomfortable jobs I’ve been on that’s for sure

Tales of a Technician: Jamaican Lady

Being a service technician can lead to you meeting some interesting people when you have to go to their houses. I am going to  start sharing some of my experiences to allow you to see my view at work.

Today was like any other day, woke up, running late, driving a distance away. Tried to call my customer on two numbers to let her know i was on my way, no answer. As i pull up to this house they have a chain link fence, 6 ft tall. Upon a closer look of it it’s a dog kennel that has been pulled together with ropes, chains and locks. I sit for a minute as i have no way to get in this yard to knock on the door. I put my vehicle in drive to pull off and she comes walking out the door.

I wave and get her attention and she comes over ans unlocks the gate. Walking into the yard she states she has been killing her grass.  Looking around i see that she has a half burned chair and couch with gas cans next to it. I asked if that was why. She stated “No i have had hundreds of flowers die to so cant be”. “Alright on to the house then” i thought.

As i took my first step i went sliding across the floor. No idea what was on the floor i know it was all wet, good thing the living room was like a furniture store. I looked around and counted two love seats, two couches, a old 90s big screen and a fridge, yes a fridge. The living room was probably 30x25ft. 

While i was fixing what was broken i hear some weird knocking sound. Looking around trying to find this sound i found the kitchen. This kitchen had a chainlink dog kennel, two washers, 2 dryers, 2 stoves, 3 mocrowaves, and a fridge with no door. After i seen it she tells me “sorry for the mess I had guest last night”

I finally found this sound that ive heard for 20 minutes though. It was a screen door… with chickens pecking at it. I mean its cool to have chicken but we are in the middle of a neighborhood, in the middle of a major city, where no farm land is in the area at all. I mean ghe candles around the place, im not sure if this is for voodoo rituals or what. I took it as lets fix this and get out of here quick.
