Contractor Ribbed About ‘Devilish' Service Call

GRESHAM, Ore. - Honke Heating & Air Conditioning took some good-natured ribbing recently in a newspaper article in The Oregonian. The newspaper interviewed a customer of Honke who was having some service work done on her furnace.

Homeowner Dixie Hellman told the newspaper that she was getting a funny feeling from the service technician, which was confirmed when he said to her, "Did you know your phone number is 666 and your name is Hell-man?"

Honke dispatcher Patricia Smith denied any devilish connections. "Because we're a cooling company, too," she told The Oregonian.
