    Gentleman brought this clock back really mad because it only runs 10 minutes when we told him it was fixed.

    Notice where he hung the pendulum. I'm surprised if it ran 10 minutes

    Is it the customer's only pendulum clock?
    They obviously do not know how a pendulum hangs

    There was some evidence the bulge in his pocket was not a wad of money. Might not have wanted him to breathe heavily on any items that were shellaced, if you catch my drift.

    He jammed the pendulum up so deep we had to remove the barrels to get it unhooked from the train.
