          I don't know, but I do know that if she was here in Kansas she would have to be licensed to work beside Rick Just like (((I have to be licensed))) to work with my master plumber.
          My point is, all these people making a big stink about being licensed are bending the law as well

            I finished the job the other day. I went today to give her the bill. She still has a water stain on the carpet, and the tech is coming back to try to work out the stain.

            I did "call her on the carpet" as to where would we be if the stain does not come out completely, she said they can live with it, and its ok. I did work the bill due to the chaos. She was suprised and happy. I was happy the job was done, and hopefully I will have references from her and the rest of the family as I have had in the past.

            I did mention that I thought it was as if "something" pushed out the sludge. Basically where the pipe was, and the route of travel made no sense. She said it was probably the ghost they have in the house !

            She began to tell me several stories regarding the incidents...The other day while working I heard a Pssst. I thought nothing of it, but now? Creepy!

              well first thing is i dont think they live in a glass house because the neighbors would not want to see rick walking around in his pink PJ s


              now she does not live in kansas so the license does not apply

                Re: I worked for free today!!!

                I worked for free all day yesterday too. Crazy lady calls up with a submersible well problem. Power going to the pump but no water. Settled on a price both with and without the use of a backhoe. Spent all day trying to loosen the pitless adapter with no luck. Galvanized and black pipe both just bend or return to their original shape when trying to loosen. Had a heavy tool made at a machine shop out of 7/8" round stock with a notch cut into the bottom. It just bent the notches outwards after I put a 24" pipe wrench on it. Finally, tell her I will be back tomorrow with a backhoe to dig it up. She says that she just wants to cancel and back out of the agreement. That will teach me to get half up front.
                Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

                      Ben this may be true however from what I read you have to be a licensed apprentice plumber to be a helper on plumbing jobs in LA just the same as here in Toto land

                      It really doesn't matter to me either way, I just find if funny how Rick and Joey ***** about unlicensed plumbers but do the same thing

                      BTW... I was speeding on my way to the shop today
                      Now I`m going to go do a $800.00 sewer clean out with-out being a licensed contractor
                      Wonder how many other laws I`ll brake before the day is over?

                        Re: I worked for free today!!!

                        I have a real job. I do not work for Rick or get paid by Rick. I go on a few jobs with him to help him out. I am merely an overeducated, underpaid day laborer. This does not require a license.

                        I am not on my own doing plumbing nor am I pretending to be a plumber as I am helping him. I am not bidding jobs, making contracts, advertising my services, or working beyond my legal means. I do not misrepresent myself as something I am not. When the customer asks if I work for Rick I say no. I have a day job and explain to them what I do.

                        I don't have my Master's in Plumbing, but I do have my Master's in Psychology. Perhaps you would like to sit on my couch for a while and we'll talk. I hope you don't mind that it is a sectional.

                          Since you have your Master's in Psychology what's the chance you can help my friend who suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder?

                            Depends. Some cases are beyond help and the people around them just have to accept things as is

                                You are misinformed. You must be a Licenced Journeyman Plumber to work on plumbing unsupervised in the City of Los Angeles but there is no Apprentices licensing. To test for your Journeyman's card you need to show either through the Union or tax records you have worked at a Journeyman's level or Apprentice level for at least four years.
