Originally he had hosted a visit in his shop from a lady who was convinced someone was trying to kill her by sending X-Ray's through her walls....
"Without missing a beat, I told her in my most professional and serious voice, that the only way to avoid this was by putting tin foil on all the walls and ceiling. This seemed to calm her down and more importantly got her out of my shop. Fast forward 5 years. I get a call to change a cylinder due to lost keys that was out of our service area. I explain that we cannot be competitive in price and tried to turn the job down. No, they'll pay to have us go because they like our work. I send a tech up to the job. 2 hours later the tech returns and he looks like he's about to bust from laughter. You guessed it! This was the lady I told to put tin foil on her apt. walls! She did it and the WHOLE apt. was lined with TIN FOIL. She explained to the tech that I was the only one who took her seriously and after my suggestion, they weren't able to x-ray her apt!!! She had been living with the tin foil on her walls for 5 years. It gave her peace of mind (isn't this what we do)and got me a customer. We laughed about this for years afterwards."
Quirky consumers are the nature of the game in locksmithing. An intelligent locksmith will provide a solution, no matter how odd.
