Service Champions technician Jeremy was in Costa Mesa doing a routine
leak test on an air conditioning unit when all of a sudden his service call
became anything but routine.
He noticed something moving behind the client’s house. The back door was open
and he saw a large lizard dash into the home.
“I thought it was a
snake at first, but it was actually a pretty big lizard,” Jeremy said.
It startled the homeowner, and she came running out of the house and quickly
handed Jeremy a broom and a bucket exclaiming, “I know you guys do Good Deeds,
now go get it!”
Armed with just a broom and bucket Jeremy and his client entered the home.
“We had to move everything
until we found it sitting in the corner,” Jeremy said.
With everything cleared away, Jeremy made his move, sweeping the unruly
houseguest into the bucket. But the lizard was having none of it.
“The first time I got it
into the bucket, it climbed right back out, so I had to find it all over again,”
The second time was the charm though.
“Oh, thank goodness,” the client exclaimed. “I would have never been able to
sit down in that room again if you hadn’t found it.”
“All in a day’s work,” Jeremy said. And they both shared a laugh as they
released the creature outside to disappear into underbrush.
That was one “wild” Good Deed For Free, Jeremy – you really saved the day!
