Have you ever been called out to a famous persons home to treat for pest control? What a thrill it would be knowing your heading out on a call to treat some ants at a famous persons home. Once inside you might find yourself looking around to see how this person lived and marvel at all the photographs of this celebrity with other famous people. You might even sneak a picture with your camera phone and in your mind you’re dreaming up a hundred different ways you could nonchalantly ask for their autograph or God forbid-get a picture- But no, you resolve to be professional and treat that place from top to bottom and kill every moving thing that has 6 legs or more. After all you put on your best pair of Dickies service pants and even broke out that new cap, you know the one without all the spider web silk all entangled on it.
With your freshly washed truck you pull up to the huge ornate gate and push the oversized red button and a stately mans voice comes over the speaker; “Good day to you sire, whom do you wish to see?” As you choke back a gulp you force out the stuttering words; ” My name is Jerry with The Bug Doctor Termite and Pest Control, I have an appoint with………….”
Well maybe you’d handle it a little better than that but it really is the high light of any day and it’s something that you can always brag about years from now. Shoot, if the story grows like the ones people tell about rat sizes- 10 years from now your story will include you and your celebrity customer hanging out at the beach, texting in between movie sets and joint family vacations. Ok, so me and Travolta never went on vacation and the fact that he hasn’t called me yet doesn’t mean that I’m not on his list. He’ll need me one day and he only lives 10 miles away so I’ve saved my best hat just for the occasion.
So, which celebrity would you most like to treat for pest control? You can choose one from the list in our poll or you can type in one that isn’t there. I realize part of having celebrity customers is to NOT run around blabbing to everybody all about it but if you do have one (or did) share what you can in the comment section. That would be fun to hear about.
