    Maybe it's like the residential game. You wait to call back and hope they find someone else. Lol

    Had a walk in go down with a bad evap fan. Supply house guy called me back in 20. Yeah we're not going to have that in stock. I said Bill you are full of shit. You have Bohn evap motors in stock. Every day.!!!!!
    That was a whole lot easier than coming up with a 3 hp Copeland R 502 semi Herm for a WIF on a Saturday
    Oh the stories.....

    I had a similar experience once. Needed some fuses when a power surge popped the them in one phase of three Lieberts condensing units serving a large data center.

    It was oh shit time.

    Called three electrical supply houses. None of them heard of an FRNR fuse. Mhm.

    Ended up finding an HVAC supplier to open up for me in the middle of the night in the middle of Detroit to sell me a half-dozen fuses. All three electrical supplier lied through their teeth. One guy had me sit and wait for 45 minutes and never called me back. His company rhymes with Gay Bar.

    One of our customers has in-house techs.

    One of their techs picked me up on a Saturday and we went on a call together lol
