    Electrician's stories



    Hi , Everyone.

    Who said electricians doesn't have the best job in the world ? I
    started this post , so that we can discuss clients , payment ,
    shit that happens , prices , where to buy ect. Things that we
    as electricians find wierd , or funny.

    I'll start with something that happened to me a few days ago.

    I was called out for a BPT intercom system that doesn't work
    anymore. This was somewhere near Melrose Arch.

    I arrived there , and found the friendliest women on the planet.
    All willing to show me where the handsets are mounted . where
    the power supply and transformer is ect.

    While I was in the roof , changing the transformer , a naked
    girl walked pass my Appy , smiling , and greeting politely.

    I only later realised that I was working at a very upper class
    bordello. ( excuse my spelling , - Im Afrikaans )

    Later on I saw a girl with just a towel wraped around her waist ,
    holding the biggest glass of red wine Iv'e ever seen .

    Needles to say , I thought about exchanging my service for
    theirs ... but it was end of month and I needed the money to
    pay my bond .... lol

    Pity I'm not a sparky
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Dave ,

    This kind of thing is once in a blue moon. I can recall 1 other time , about 8 years ago , when I was till an apprentice. We worked at a country spa / beauty salon.

    I walked around the boulding , with my toolbox , and opened a little pedestrian gate that leads into the backyard , and I walked straight into the outdoor tanning facility they had there. I saw a lot more than I should have.

    My boss got into a little trouble , but he laughed later , and told me that he only wished it was him and not me.

    While we're on this theme ....

    My dad was also an electrician. He used to tell me about women that phoned , saying he should come out , because there's some kind of
    electrical problem. He told me that one women opened the door , naked. Another was in a robe , and droped the robe once he was in the house.

    He had a few stories like this , but he was the faithfull kind.

    Out of fear that this kind of thing woul'd happen again , he never knocked
    on a door again , without his Zulu apprentice at his side.

    I've heard those stories - never happened to me though. Maybe it's the wedding ring.

    I spent about 18 years as a woodborer inspector in the main and had my fair share of experiences. I remember inspecting one building with 4 escourt agencies in central Durban once. But being the morning, "business" was quiet. The biggest problem was getting enough light going to see what I was looking for - woodborer flight holes are kinda small

    I had one where I got there at about 2.00 pm once. The owner jokingly asked if I could spray the girls for bugs whilst I was about it (people get the wrong idea about what a woodborer inspector actually is). I said that would be extra - and all the girls responded in a chorus "No way! We charge the extras."
