It Started Like This:
This one particular weekend I rented 5 units to this wealthy family. This family was loaded with cash. Their house sat on about 5 acres of land and although I didn't go inside their home, it's safe to say it had at least 10 bedrooms.
I assumed they were having a family reunion because they rented the units for the entire weekend. So when I arrived to pick up the bounce houses that Monday morning I was exited because I was thinking of all the money I had just made with one event.
But Now I'm Angry
But when I got to the home to pick up my stuff I saw something that pissed me off. They had tape, lights and all the other types decorations plastered on to my bounce houses. It looked like my units were used a college frat party.
So This Is What I Did
I stormed to the front of their house and banged on the door and this short man with a big beard answered the door looking oh so angry (probably because of how I banged on the door) but I didn't care.
He said "what is your problem my family is sleeping, what are you some type of animal banging on my door like that".
My exact words were, sir with all due respect I don't care about your family sleeping when you damaged my property with all this crap on my units.
But Things Got Better Much Better
So we walked to the backyard and when he saw how awful the bounce houses looked he immediately apologized.
He told me how sorry he was and that he had just come in town that morning from a business trip so he wasn't at the party his family had that weekend. He said sir don't worry I will take care of this.
So he woke up his wife, kids and every one else and made them take off everything that they had put on my bouncers and he made them clean them also.
So now I'm feeling a little better because nothing was damaged and the man approached me as I was sitting in my truck and said that he knows that time is money and they wasted my time.
So he reached in his pocket and pulled out a stack of money and gave me $500 and said sorry for wasting your time.
But It Gets Even Better
So I said thank you and I was getting ready to pull off, he said wait just one second. He called over this kid and said bring the box.
This man didn't ask me he just opened the back car door and said this is for you also. I said thank you and drove off. When I got to my storage I opened the box and it was 5 bottles of Hennessey inside.
I don't even drink but that was awesome!
