We got to do a job this Morning.. EARLY .. This restaurant had a small flash fire and could not get there regular company out to clean them . About an hour after we started cleaning 2 guys show up in a truck. In the back of the truck was a Little Northstar Hot Water Electric unit. The guy gets out of the truck and tells me that my services are no longer required ...LOL. I told JT to just keep cleaning. The Manager of the restaurant and the guy from this other company start talking.. The manager tells the guy look at this guys equipment ( talking about my machine and stuff ) Jt and I Just Kept on Cleaning .. The other guy went back to his truck and watched us till we got thru.. Upon completeing the job The Other companies guy gets out of the truck and tells me that we must have not done to good a job because we didit so quickly.. I just went on about my business...... The Guy From the other company goes and tells the manager of the restaurant the same crap.. that we got thru to quicly.... Now the Catch .. The Manager gets pissed off at the other company guy , the manger said to him what the f... are you still doing here I thought you said you couldn't even make it here. So I Called B&R and they did a great Job.. I will be using the to clean my other 3 stores..
The guy gets pissed off at me on the way to his truck and tells me that I owe him and that I am going to Pay.... JT jumps out of my truck and said lets go right here and now... The manger comes out laughing .. I love the hood Cleaning Business.....

Top 10 Rules in Business


1)Work Harder. People on Welfare Depend on You.

2)If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
3) Good judgment comes from bad experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

4)Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself

5)Once you’ve climbed the ladder of success, you’re over the hill.

6)It's lonely at the top, but you eat better.

7)I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted a paycheck

8)When in doubt, tell the truth

9)To err is human. To forgive is not company policy.

10)How about never? Is never good for you?




Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

Sweet. A little fisticuffs never hurt anyone... :) The manager was absolutely right to get mad. I don't do exhaust cleaning, but I have run into similar situations.

Tribute to John B. Hood

Way down Mississippi not to far from New Orleans,
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood,
Where lived a country boy name of Johnny B. Hood
He never ever learned to read or write so well,
But he could clean a Kitchen Exhaust like ringing a bell.
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Johnny B. Hood
He used to carry his Equipment in the back of his truck
Now it's trailer mounted and having better luck.
Oh, he's got the whole state and for miles around
His competitors want to hurt him but JT's there to throw down
Restaurateur's everywhere would stop and say
Thanks for showing up, now come get your pay
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Go Johnny Go
Go Go, Johnny B. Hood
Many people calling from miles around
He works night and day and never has a frown
Maybe someday his name would be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Hood is cleaning here tonight.
Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Go Johnny Go
Go Johnny B. Hood

David, are you an aspiring song writer / modifier?
That was funny!
I give it 2 hours before it appears on John's web site.

No I'm no writer of any sort. Just trying to take the edge off the daily grind and have a little fun.

Well it's 4:30 am here in the beautiful town of Jackson Mississippi .. where I am still awake... Just got thru Cleaning .. I blew out another hose.. I tried to use one of the quick fix hose ends , but what a piece of junk.. Anybody had any luck repairing your hose with these repair ends , where you thread one end on in reverse and then stick the other end that is threaded 3/8 on one end and Slips in the hose on the other..?

Oh yeah on another note.. I lost an account . I actually saw the hood cleaning company doing the job last night. The place Sal's and the time 1:25 am..
Man you want to talk about a fly by nighter. I took a break from cleaning katheryn's steak house around 1:15 am and I saw a truck pull across the street at sal's .. They appeared to have a cold water unit in this little crew cab truck..4 guys get out of the truck and Phillip shows up to let them in , he is the manager.
So I laughed and went on about my business.. about 3:00 am I got thru cleaning Katheryn's and I noticed the guys across the street still there.. So you know me I had to go over there and see what was up.. When I got across the street I heard this awful sound .. Scrape, scrape and grind grind.. These guys were actually grinding on sal's stainless steel hood .. I even noticed on guy cleaning the backslpash with a brillo soap pad. I wanted to take pictures so bad , but it was just me and I didn't feel like getting my ass kicked this morning..

As I was leaving one of the guys was washing filter with A cold water machine called HUSKY. I think he had it hooked up to there hot water or something.. I told him I hope he gets at least 400.00 for the job because thats what I used to charge Sal..
The guys jaw dropped and he said the most stupid thing ... Your prices are to high that is why you are not going to make it in the hood cleaning business.. hahaha..

I told him ( Yeah your Right ) I can hardly wait to here from Sal..

That 2nd picture looks just like my office. People think I am unorganized but I think a clean desk is a sign of a dirty mind.
