  • if you see it twice, does that make it not as stupid?

    safety in numbers?

    second time, different houses, different people.

    Go clear a tub.

    get a call back later...it's not draining.

    go back, instruct on how to operate toe tap (first one) or push stopper lever (the one today).

    I'm just so over it. Every effing body gets billed for this level of stupidity from now on, starting today.

    oh, yeah, by the way... keep breathing or you will die. you have to eat every few days too.
    This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

    you HAVE to charge for your time. regardless of how stupid it is. I checked a guys furnace out the other day because he had a high gas bill. no higher than it is every december, but he felt like it was too high and wanted me to check it out. paid my hourly rate for me to tell him it was working fine, and needed a light cleaning "which he wanted to do himself"

    I didn't really Do anything, but he paid for my time.
    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          had a decent customer today that called about a gurgling kitchen sink.

          i go there and find 2 socks in the disposal.

                Happens all the time, had one just last week.

                One bedroom condo for no hot water
                I ask where the water heater is. She swears she doesn't have one
                Um... okay...
                I know it's in her unit because I see the breaker for it.
                She still forces me to search the building elsewhere for 20 minutes
                I finally find it in her bedroom closet
                Said she has never laid eyes on the 66 gallon lowboy before
                She's lived there 15 YEARS!!
