Talking to Mr customer about the job I was about to do.

Movement could be heard in room upstairs.

The subject of drying times arose and I said "the carpet may still be slightly damp and he could take his wife out for a nice evening out"

Door opened and his male partner appeared.... where's the hole in the floor when you need one? Embarassed
