My customer said the piano is in the carriage house, and there will be contractors working on the outside. Should be easy enough to spot, right?
Driving down the street I notice the homes are getting bigger and more elaborate. Then I spot one that should be around the number I'm looking for and it has a carriage house and people working on the outside.
I pull in, man working on porch tells me it's the wrong house, but he plays piano (takes one of my cards). He said the house you want is two house over.
I pull into the driveway of the house two houses over. It has a carriage house and contractors working outside. A young man comes out and asks if he can help me. I tell him I'm the piano tuner. Just then an older man comes out, he asks who I'm looking for, he says that's the house next door (the one I skipped). But... We have two pianos and our tuner recently passed.
I go inside, scope it out, give them my business card and the older gentleman gives me his contact information and asks me to set up the tunings.
Finally I get to the house in the middle, it has a carriage house, and contractors are working on the outside. Yay, it's the right house! Three houses in a row, all with carriage houses, all with contractors working outside, and two of them produced new found business. Some days the stars line up.
