      Re: You know you're too into plumbing when...

      I have been having some plumbing dreams lately. Its kind of sick really how obsessive this trade can become. I am just hoping that the plumbing god rewards me with an early retirement for all my years of devout service. $$$

              When you have been out of the trade for nearly 6 months but you still cant help reading tales of Plumber Rick and his Magic k-60 or, Duckbutter and his plight to solve plumbing problems for homeowners across the globe! They are like bedtime stories for me. I need my fix.........

                -When you have 17(I counted) plumbing internet sites saved to your favorites but only one porn site.

                -you go on vacation and snaking out a drain was one of the most memorable moments.

                -You've told the wif that if you ever got divorced, she could have everything except your truck and tools.

                      That reminds me when I go into a hotel, my wife always laughs as I critique the plumbing.
                      Sometimes I say, "Oooo, they recently remodeled. Nice new shower-valves, beautiful faucets and sinks!" Other times its, "hey honey, come see this they have plumbing fixtures in here from the 1970s and its frickin' junk too!" I get pissed when the toilets run or the faucets drip, cheap hotel management.

                          I have it even worst as when we go Brenda critics the plumbing. I guess 20-years running the shop and now 9-years helping me with inspections has made her tough.

                            .....your house looks like a plumbers dream. Multiple pumps, pressure tanks, water heaters, body sprays, recirculating lines, etc as you try to squeeze every last GPM you can to power your "water park". Just imagine how much fun some other plumber is going to have figuring it all out after we are all gone.
                            Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

                                .....you go to Germany and Austria on vacation and you are more impressed with the plumbing than all of those castles and churches.
