My state allows one party consent, meaning if you consent to record your environment it is legal. Check your state laws.

I'm glad I don't have to do home PC repair anymore. I HATED going into people's homes to fix their computers. Some people were pretty cool. Easy to talk to and people you could really get along with. However, on the other side of the coin, there were some really odd/strange people. That or completely nasty and disgusting houses.
One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we canít allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.

the recorder could wortk for you regardless of law if you set it up publicly and recorded your repair on it...simple record of what you find and what you are doing...booted up...found defective motherboard...shutting down to replace...she interjects while youre doing your repair and shes on tape...not a big issue...just inform that you record your repairs for documentation later...
if i have a customer threaten to call the police i will normally pick up a phone and offer to call for them as i have an interest in my own safety...it usually takes it to another level and makes them understand i will not be intimidated...
you handled it as well as you could under the circumstances...being trapped in a customers home while theyre freaking out is an uncomfortable and not tactically desireable place to be...

Wow, I didn't know my mom needed her computer fixed.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

Curious...did the daughter elaborate on why her mom freaked?

I will do that as you are right. I could face chargers. It has happened before to others.
