My insurance agent calls the other day. I immediately think "Oh man, the guy I hired lied and the insurance company got his dmv back and I'm being called to let me know he is uninsurable or that to insure him my rates will triple". Well actually I had to reign in my imagination pretty quickly because it wasn't about insurance at all. Seems my agent had a plumbing question! Seems he has a drainage problem. He has a "home warranty" who sent out one of my competitors who I was shocked to learn still does that kind of work. Anyway, the company who was sent by the warranty company was a BF franchise. They informed him that what he needed was not covered (imagine that, a home warranty company not covering something) and quoted him a price of nearly $300 to cable his main line. So my agent thinks that's kind of high and basically is trying to feel me up to see if I am less. Well I'm not. In fact I told him that that sounds pretty cheap to me and that I know the company who quoted that number and I'm wondering why they are doing it so cheap. My agent of course is stunned and complains "Well I can go rent a machine for $40.00" to which I reply "yes you can, hope that turns out well for you. If you get in trouble give us a call and we will come take care of it for you. Watch out for the cable, if you over torque it it may jump out of the drum and if it does it will twist up instantly and catch anything in it's way including fingers, hands, arms, heads, and necks." He still wants to politely argue and says "Wow, I guess I just don't understand why it cost's so much" to which I respond "Well, I tell you, ... it mostly has to do with the fact that I am unwilling to come play in other people's poo for free! Let me know if you need any help."
