      Pretty cool. Kinda' like Batman that leaves a card. Do they shine a pipewrench shadow on the clouds when they need you?

          you're on a first date (with joey) and she needs to find a bathroom.

          i look up at the exposed plumbing in the parking garage and point her towards the womens room mens had a urinal drop, while womens had an extra bowl

          i guess that impressed her as that was 7 years ago

            Even though you work with plumbers everyday, you are already looking forward to next September's vacation to spend time with another bunch of plumbers to talk about plumbing

                I hate to break this to you but the plumbing god only rewards t&m plumbers.

                  You're too into plumbing when....

                  You wear your work shirt with your logo on it everywhere, not because you're fishing for business, but because you're proud to be a plumber.

                  You may have been installing water heaters (or faucets, or toilets, etc..) for 35 years but you still are looking for ways to do it better.

                  Your friends won't invite you over anymore because the first thing you do is look under their sinks and in their toilets-and you're not shy about commentary on them.

                  Your friends won't invite you over anymore because you might start talking (again) about your nastiest plumbing job.

                  Your friends won't invite you over anymore because you always wear that stupid work shirt with your logo.

                  You don't have any more friends.

                    ....you drive around town and through various neighborhoods with your family or friends and you have to mention how you repaired, installed or cleaned a drain in every house you've done work in.

                    It doesn't matter if the person you are riding with is in the middle of a sentence or not, you just blurt it out like it is the most important thing in the world.

                    It's funny how you remember every detail about each job too!

                        Unfortunately this is me this (my, long)weekend...
                        You might be a plumber... if you fly 1400 miles back home to visit relatives and have four service calls( for old customers) to fit in along the way.

                          Then you're not too into plumbing. You know you're too into plumbing when you wake up more tired from doing plumbing in your sleep than you are from doing it during the day.

                            Everyone else averts their gaze but you stare because all you see is $$$$ floating in the toilet.
