Last Friday night I get home from vacation and see a leak under the drivers side front axle on the wash truck (2003 Ford E350 7.3 Powerstroke 130k miles with a 12 foot box). Saturday morning run it down to the Ford garage. They tell me looks like a tranny line is leaking leave it here we'll look at it Monday. I get the call this morning (insert bad music here) Randy you've got diesel fuel in the cooling system so we're gonna have to pull the heads. Bad enough right, well I had 3 nights of work booked this week starting tonight. So I call another cleaner in the area, he had his pump go out last week and referred the customer to me. Long story short Chris from Complete Services is now driving around with both of my machines in his trailer cleaning for my customers and his. Moral of the story: Make nice with the guy down the street. You never know when he will save your a$$, or you can help him.

You know the old saying: There's nothing that can't be fixed with enough money. Following Dave Ramsey and operating debt free gives us the freedom to not be reactive to the problem, which got worse. Our hot water machine broke down on the job so now that's going in the shop. What a way to end the year!!!!!

Sorry to hear about your issues, Randy. next week you will close the biggest account of your life. If business wasn't an emotional roller coaster it wouldn't be any fun!
