Welcome to the latest edition of our popular “Can You Top This?” column, featuring the newest entry in the Service Industry News “Horror File. ”

This issue’s entry comes to us from Marty Fowler of Mike Fowler’s Pool Service, in Jamul, California.

“Mike was just leaving the property when his phoned rang,” writes Marty.

“So, instead of pulling up the extra three feet to the fence he stopped to answer his phone.

“After the call, he got out to open the gate, when the phone rang again. Returning to the cab, he answered just as the tree hit. Needless to say, it was the last pool of the day! ”

Oh my! This lends a whole new meaning to “Saved By The Bell” — doesn’t it?”

Other publications like to print lots of pretty pictures of beautiful pools, spas and well engineered installations.

At Service Industry News, we would rather go behind the scenes and take a closer look at the type of stuff our readers encounter everyday — cracked tiles, tree roots, spaghetti plumbing, rats in the heater, cars in the pool and more!
