A/C companies and Insulation companies... my gosh.

First of all, I'm not going to let you do the work if you tell me you don't know how much it's going to be, and refuse to give me an estimate if I don't pay you $90 for your visit.

Secondly, don't answer the phone when you just woke up, and then scream at your wife to be your secretary. I can hear you. And I can hang up on you.

And never ever call me sugar.

The company I've used (Moon Air Conditioning) charges $80 for a visit.

But for that, you get an expert technician to spend an hour testing your air conditioner and finding out what's wrong, and what parts are needed to fix it. Not cheap, but if he's taking an hour of his time with a truck and specialized tools, I can see how he'd want to be paid for his labor whether I decide I want the repair or not.

And they don't scream on the phone or call me sugar. Those seem like bad signs.

This was three different companies.

It was more that the first company (Keith Lawson) told me they wouldn't give me a cost till after the work was finished. I doubt it'd take more than 10 minutes to give me a rough number. And unlike other companies, they weren't one that takes that $90 off the cost of the repair after they come out.

Okay, so, I didn't know this but my parents are shipping me down home for a couple weeks. Mind holding on to the TV for...well, about 2 weeks?

Sorry about the complications

:-/ I really need to get rid of this. I can't really hold onto it for two weeks not knowing what's going to happen, and having other offers in the meantime. Would you be willing to pay some sort of deposit?

I thought you were using your home warranty? That should only cost you about $50 per visit as they get paid through the warranty company. Did you drag your feet and let the warranty expire before getting it fixed?

This is entirely unrelated. I already fixed my A/C.

Sorry, sugar. Really hard to keep up with you.

U.N. Resolution 242 FTW!

Hi Melissa. I'm BusterGates@msn.com. I was googling for origins of "don't give a hang" and your blog site came up. Your move sweetie.
