You know that old saying “You Can’t Fix Stupid” here is a perfect example:
Tenant: Hi, my hair dryer is not working
Tenant: and the lights aren’t working in my bathroom
Me: you must have blown a fuse I’ll send maintenance over as soon as possible
Tenant: Well, the lights in the rest of the apartment aren’t working either matter of fact the lights in the parking lot are not working either. This is a real inconvenience; I have to get ready for work
Me: …. Did you just say that the lights in the parking lot aren’t working?
Tenant: (sounding annoyed) yes
Me: Do me a favor and look around at the other houses around you. Do they have lights on?
Tenant: ah… No
Me: Did you ever stop and think that your neighborhood doesn’t have power?
Me: Listen to me very carefully if you have no cable do you call the cable company?
Me: And if you don’t have internet who do you call?
Tenant: the internet company
Me: ok… so why would you call me if you have no electricity?
Tenant: Well I couldn’t use my hair dryer
(The tone of my voice has gone from very calm to if I could climb through this phone and eat you I would)
Me: Listen to me very carefully if you EVER call me again before 8am something better be burning down – CLICK
