Whose Rats are They?
by George Van Oosbree
ProTec was asked by an HOA to go into the attics of their townhome/condo project and fill all the holes in the attic walls following a cable company who had just ran new wire and made a number of new openings to the outsides of the buildings. We completed the job without any problems. Then, one late afternoon I received a call from a woman who was flustered and agitated. She said that their community hadn’t had rats until we showed up. Not knowing exactly what to say I asked the woman if she could hold the line. I put the phone down and thought about it for a minute. A few minutes later, not quite knowing what to say and seeing that she was still on the line, I picked the phone back up and said to her, “Mam, I just checked and all of our rats are accounted for”. She said fine and thanked me and hung up quite contentedly.
