    The scary call outs

    hi all

    years back i get a call from a customer their sf-7750 jamming from adf

    i get there its a library,no problem testing the adf about 50 copies no jams

    the labraryan passing by and asks what is the problem,i answer nothing is wrong with the machine

    she looks me in the eyes and tells me are you calling me a liar this machine jams every copy

    and she goes to her office,30 seconds later i hear her voice behind me,are you calling me a liar

    i turn around just to see a fire-arm in my face,my knees start to shake but i droped all my tools and run to my car

    i sat in the car shaking for an hour atleast,then i saw her leaving maybe for lunch or maybe to see her psyciatrist

    i took ma chance and run in to collect my tools never to see this customer again,i told my boss you can fire me know but i never going there again

    even after all this years as i write this my hands start to shake

    good luck all

    and keep away from libraryans

    Of course it had to be a woman.

    I do not scare easily, I have an x wife.

    Was she like that when you married her?

    Fixing a printer at a nuclear power plant was kind of scary. I've never dealt with security that tough. But they never waived a firearm in my face, so I think your story tops mine.

    Re: The scary call outs

    one week after the Oklahoma city bombings I was covering another service territory and we get a call for a machine down at the federal building. Now this was in the days of suit and tie service so I arrive in a black suit and as it was raining I had on my black lopndon fog trench coat.
    I go to the desk, introduce myself, proceed to give them my license and they search me and then they ask me to open my tool kit. Well I always carried a tube of plumbers epoxy ( and still do) to temporarily fix broken doors and actuators etc. I got jacked into the wall with a gun placed to my head and had about 5 federal officers bringing me to the ground. As I am laying there the SAC for my normal service territory walks in and sees me on the ground. He stops the whole process as he has seen me fix his copier several times with the plumbers putty. Shaken I proceed to go to work on the copier. WOuldn't you know it had a broken door actuator and i take out the tube of plumbers putty and hear Stop or I'll shoot. I drop the putty and raise my hands stuttering don't shoot. It was the SAC from my territory laughing his ass off. NEedless to say I was not pleased. Next time his copier was broken ( the door again) he had to wait a week and a half until I ordered the new door and charged them for it.

    We don't get that excited here where I live. The closest thing I had was to get the glue out of my suitcase and hear some comment about sniffing it instead of fixing the machine.

    If it was me, they not only wouldn't have gotten anything fixed that day, I wouldn't have set foot in the place again. I guess I'm not that forgiving.
