When was the last time someone performed a service for you and refused payment from you? Well, it happened at our house this afternoon with the lawn sprinkler repairman.
We called him to check our flow valve(s) because the last series of heads doesn’t come on. We showed him the valve location and told him what was happening and he traced the wires, checked the valves, triggered it manually, and told us what to do to fix it. We thanked him and asked what his time was worth, and he said “no charge”. Wow!
He gave us some step by step instructions on how to fix the system. We have to run a new wire to the panel from the flow valve.
But, I can’t remember the last time I called a repairman and didn’t pay out tons of cash. This was a very nice surprise.
