The first place prize of $1,000 in a Visa gift card for the craziest after-hours call came from Gunner 1st Electric out of Littleton, Colo., who answered a late-night service call involving a mysterious connection between a homeowner’s toilet and a suspected doorbell prank.

“I was called out to a lady’s home after hours. When I arrived I asked what was the issue. She explained that every time she used the toilet the door bell would ring. When she went to the door, no one was there. She thought it was a prank; it had gone on for a couple weeks now. I checked out everything, and it appeared to be fine. I politely ask her to sit on the toilet. Well, I finally figured out the toilet dripped over the doorbell transformer causing it to ring. Unfortunately, I’m not a plumber but still had to charge for the late night call.”

Second and third place prizes of $500 Visa gift cards were awarded to a dermatology center out of Parker, Colo., who answered a midnight botox request from a woman on a first date and a veterinarian clinic based in Hinton, W.V., who came to the rescue of a male kitten whose owner thought it was going into labor.
