Pearson loves their customers, and their technicians have some very memorable stories from their plumbing, heating, A/C and pest control house calls. Whatever your problem, it’s no problem for our Pearson guys!
"BUY YOURSELF A SODA, SON"
SHORT & SWEET
“Our plumbing dispatcher sent me a call for a toilet repair. When I arrived at the home, the elderly homeowner led me to the bathroom and apologized on the way that I’d be working in the dark.
She said that the lightbulbs had burned out in the hallway weeks before, and she couldn’t reach them to change them. She told me she was all alone and didn’t have anyone she could call to help her. I told her I’d be happy to get my ladder and change those bulbs for her and proceeded to do so. As I was cleaning up, she pressed a quarter into the palm of my hand and said “Thank you. Buy yourself a soda, son.”
I didn’t have the heart to tell her sodas were now a dollar a can, but I’ll tell you what, just the genuine gratitude she showed me was worth a whole lot more to me than a truckload of cola.” - Michael

COMMERCIAL BLOOPERS & GOOFS
We originally planned on ending the TV commercial with Michael taking a swig of soda out of a glass bottle. At the shoot, we learned Michael does not drink soda! Michael was a good sport and took a few fake swigs.
