Default Bloody customers

Went to a job today where the customer said the landing socket made a
fizzing noise when it was used.

Late 60's early 70's build and probably the original socket.

So I just swapped it. The customer then said "I'll go and get the
hairdrier as that the only thing that makes it fizz. Mind you it does
that to all the sockets in the house"

FFS You could see the sparks on the hairdrier flex when she turned it on.

Moral?: always get your customers to demonstrate the fault before you
start to fix it.

Like the ones that got a tingling feeling when they put their arms in
the fish pond and said the deeper their arms were in the water the
bigger the tingling sensation?
