Default Dealing with a OCD gay artist customer

It was a test, at least I see it that way. I'm only glad I charged him T & M to install some custom lighting on an addition I roughed 2 years ago which is finally in the finish stage. I forgot camera yesterday which sucked . 10 2' open flourescent strips with colored bulbs set 19" apart in a hallway. Made me feel like the carnival came to town. Now he wants me to fabricate a custom chandelier made of flourescent strips hanging from the ceiling or completely build a tubular fixture with external tubes for different color lamps. My wife couldn't understand why I drove there under the speed limit and doubled it on the way home last night.

Be sure to get a UL listing on the whole thing!!!
The company I worked for used to have a customer that was gay. One day one of our guys was out there and he told him, "Doug, has anyone ever told you you have nice looking hair?"

We have a relatively high population of LGBT considering the rural nature of Lincoln County, Oregon... every service call I've been on for them has been just the same as any other residential service call I've been on.

I'm sure there are many more customers I've done work for that are gay and I didn't even realize it.
