  • in a new york minute

    the owner of a townhouse, who lives out of state in arizona asked me to fix the shower head that was not up to pressure for her renter.

    the renter who just moved here from manhattan, new york is not a hands on person. i removed the dirty flow restrictor and flushed it out. checked the other shower while i was there and asked if there was anything else to check.

    she waited till i was at my truck and called me on the cell phone. asked if i could check her fountain. since i was billing the owner for the call, i said i'll give it a look.

    grabbed a few tools and walked back into the 38 unit complex. looked at the 5' tall 3 level, fountain that was plugged in and not pumping. i told her that the fountain was low on water

    she told me when she bought it, it doesn't take water

    i explained that it needs water in the lower level to allow the pump to recirculate to the top and it was low due to evaporation

    she hands me a crystal vase from the kitchen and expects me to fill it with 5 gallons or more of water.

    i ask for a garden hose and fill it from the bibb 2' away.

    to her amazement the fountain came to life

    of course i was so blown away by this that i couldn't help but tell her she would be famous on the ridgid forum overnight.

    of course she could have been a ridgid calendar girl too
    funny it's the same complex that the former ridgid calendar photographer lives in too.

    shower repair bill sent to owner.

    fountain repair, no charge
    maybe i just have a thing for naive new yorkers

        pictures of the girl or the fountain

        i guess that would be a little hard to explain.

        p.s. she was a very good sport for letting me post this.
        also she's not a blond

        i'll have to send her the link to this so keep it clean

                Just for a fraction of a second I had to do a double take.
                There was just NO possible way you convinced Rob to dress like that...kinda looked like him at a glance.

                      Rick, I sure hope you come to Mn. someday. You are my kind of guy. Seriously, if you ever do, Mrs. Pipestone and I will show you some real fishing and let you enjoy a little bit of Heaven. I'll bet Garager would join in, too.
