:D hehay! used to get stuff like that happen when i was a field engineer, usedto fix the door entry intercoms. Once did a flat in Leeds where i had to just test the phone, lass about 17, spanish or the like, lets me in, shes nude, then she lays down on sofa and gets on wi reading book, in full view (took ages to test that phone :D )

old grannies were the worst, some were right devils. But the worst job was testing smoke detectors, every old grannie made me a cuppa, until the last house i needed the loo badly - she wouldnt let me use it :cry:
