  • I need to know how to approach this job.

    This is a real actual job. I can make some bucks if I do the right thing. I can lose my shirt if I make a bad decision.

    This house is kind of ratty looking. This guy tells me he gets only $1200 a month from social security. He smells, the house smells, and the house has 50 year old carpeting that was installed when it was the Model House in the 50's. Some people are really repulsive, like me. All his front teeth are missing and what teeth are left are discusting. I put on a mask and I told this guy an allergi reaction from his 10 cats was causing asthma.

    This customer has a 2400 square foot raised floor crawl space type house. Nine months earlier, some bubba plumber repaired his drain pipe, underneath the house, and the pipe slipped out of the coupling, flooding underneath the house with thousands of gallons of waste water. This is where only one-tenth of the stink is coming from.

    The customer had a second problem that was more serious that the waste water. This house had a hot water circulating pump. Another bubba plumber installed copper piping for this customer about 5 years ago. This bubba doesn't wipe the self-cleaning flux from the joints and a hot water pipe joint is spraying steamy water under the house.

    We have a third problem. The hot steamy hot water spread throughout underneath the house and the entire structure is covered with white mold growth. I found one more very tiny leak in another pipe joint.

    The copper piping is only 5 years old. the drain pipes are 2/3 ABS and the remaining cast-iron and galvanized pipes are 50 years old.

    Please tell me exactly what to do. How? How Much. Don't forget, this guy said he has a money problem. I am very serious. I want to do what plumbing I have to and charge him what he can afford.

    "I am ugly, stupid, and will never amount to nothing" (the movie Throw Momma From the Train). I love that part. I changed the 'You' to 'I'. I didn't want to insult anyone.

    Oh Yeah! I have several pictures of this disaster. How do I post them on this forum? This will help you to help me.

    I will list the pictures in the directory on the main page as 'Disaster House'
    Then you can blow and blow and blow them up. You should be able to see that I ma a happy jolly guy. Nothing bothers me! Except when I am banned from something.

    Signed.

        With all those customers at $340 an hour, why don't you pass this on to a real plumber?

          "I bid against low-priced ignorant fools like you and I still get the job." A quote from the non-scumbag himself, and the answer to your question. Does anyone believe anything this idiot is selling?

            now I may be wrong but I can understand the camera being off a year, but the placard some one placed in the picture appears to a "07" year on it, (now I do have trouble with dates keeping them straight in my mind at times but my calendar has a 2008 date on it.

                  Okay! So, you didn't take the bait! I screwed up on the date. The Thead is supposed to be a hypothetical question.

                  This final outcome of this job is great example for differences of opinion because that I won't mention now.

                    So why not just state it as such? Doesn't help your point that you are not deceiving your customers with the way you price things out.

                        Do yo Claim To Contribute To This Forum

                        I spent a lot of time taking the data out of my software and putting it on this forum. My web site tracking tells me how many people downloaded this software. I have been working of this software for so many years I can't remember and it is designed specifically for a repair shop.

                        Not one person who downloaded this software even said thank you. Nobody said is was good or crap. Are you afraid to admit to other members that you checked it out. My webisite tracker only holds 150 hits on the main streen and every hit was from yesterday. So, over 100 people went directly from the forum to the software page.

                        What is your contribution? I really am a jerk for giving away what I am giving. But, I won't let you bother me. I will leave the software available until Monday and until after I meet with your investigators. As I said in many posts. I will not be posting after the 15th. Yeah! Ungrateful snot-nose brats!

                          Probably, the reason won't say thank you for the softwares is because they don't want to be ridiculed by forum members. These same people, who are probably smarter than you, probably have better ideas than you and they withhold their ideas because they don't want to be ridiculed.

                          Maybe this Thread worked out anyway!

                          I will be here Sunday just the same as I met at my office with a forum member last evening for several hours. And all this is free. I will be giving a total of at least 7 hours of my time to showing you how I run my shop. I don't give a crap about whose shops or ideas are better. You are not going to know without people like me who is willing open everything up to you and get into some pretty nitty and gritty personal and business things.

                          The story of catching my wife on my plumber and now the plumber is my partner was a joke. I made it clear that I had to make a decision about whether or not I should kill them or get a divorce and now the plumber is my partner. I thought it would appear obvious that this was a joke since, had you done your homework, you would know I don't have a partner.

                          Second, the punch line is supposed to be, the my wife got 1/2 of my business in the divorce. Do you get it?

                          See you Sunday,

                          Jack

                            Wasn't it Curtis Plumbing where the wife got the business in the divorce and turned a 2-truck shop into an 8-truck shop?
