A Tucson businessman learned the uncomfortable way that the customer is not always right.

In July, a Sahuarita man who runs a stucco company was just trying to drum up a little business when he gave his telephone number to a potential customer.

But after multiple calls that the businessman found harassing, he made a report to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

For six days straight “he had been receiving numerous phone calls at all hours of the day” from the potential customer he knew only as “Gregory,” the report stated.

He told Gregory to stop calling because he “was hearing nothing but voices on the other end of the phone,” and “it sounded as though people were having sex.

“He stated he believed Gregory was involved in something weird and did not want to have anything to do with him,” according to the report.

When contacted by a sheriff’s deputy, Gregory denied harassing the stucco man, claiming he was just calling his friend to meet up and “have a few drinks.”

The deputy resolved the incident by telling Gregory to stop calling the stucco man.
