      Dropping the flux brush, Stripping the screw half way in, Stanley Channel locks (Enough said), screwing up that hard to reach pex crimp, replacing a fluidmaster and the anglestop won't stop leaking, 1.5" copper traps for washers below slab, dropping the toilet tank lid.

      On the HVAC side I hate it when Farmers do their own wiring or the schrader starts leaking after I pull my hose and it won't seal up

      That is just this week

        Ductwork in a crawlspace. It often seems it's ran with disregard to the future. But I know NOTHING about HVAC. Even if it's ran perfect, I still hate it.

        What I call Cotton Candy Land. Pink insulation hanging everywhere.

        Kohler parts.

        Metal P-Traps. Some love them. I don't.

        Farmers that do their own wiring.

        A customer that hasn't developed basic sanitation.

        The 75' crawl, over the ductwork, under the ductwork, through cotton candy land, with 20 different tools/fittings.......

        and then needing ONE more thing no matter how you rethink it.

          Fishing wire 52' with a 50' snake.
          Adding an outlet in a bathroom. Locate the studs and make a hole between them and find the 4" C.I. vent stack is right where my hole wants to be.
          Replacing pole light bulbs, transformers, igniters, etc., always, always hornets' nests.
          Customer wants overhead lighting relocacted and the ceiling joists are running in the wrong direction.
          Sump pump is not working and I have to wade through a foot of water to find the breaker turned off.
          Wiring new A/C air handlers - in the attic - in July.
          Abandoned in place live wires.
          Hitting a nail with a brand new drill bit.
          Having to park down the street because the driveway has three cars parking in it.
          Changing out the load center panel next to the cat's litter box.

                  As you hand the customer the bill they ask if it's ok to pay it next month.

                  Cleaning the crap out from under the kitchen sink cabinet so you can get at the piping. For christ sakes, they know you are coming. They know what for. You would think they could get the crap out of the way first.

                  Water heater change outs in mobile homes, where the heater is in the closet and the closet if full of crap.

                  Anything to do with the underside of a trailer

                  Please do not run water or flush the toilet ma'am. I have to cut into the waste pipe.

                  30' into the crawlspace, four screws, dead battery

                        i hate it when the customer plugged the toilet up a week ago and then decides to call you.

                        Vince

                        use the wet/dry vac to clean it out.

                          Getting dripped with hot flux or solder. Being thrown long distances/beat up when hitting a nail with a self-feed bit. (now I know to turn it off and switch to the hole saw when I hear that grinding sound.) Anything having to do with heights. Now, I should start a list of good things on a different thread...it would be longer, but I'm feeling kinda lazy.

                            Along those same lines--

                            A quart of PVC glue falling off a shelf in the truck, landing upside down in your tool bucket after being put away without the lid on tight.

                              Actual conversation I had one day last week around 6:30 pm.

                              Caller: "Yes, I have a stopped up kitchen sink"

                              Me: "O.K. ma'am, I can make it there early tomorrow afternoon"

                              Caller: "Oh, not tonight?"

                              Me: "No, Ma'am"

                              Caller: "Oh, O.K., I can wait. How much do you charge?"

                              Me: "$xxx.xx"

                              Caller: "Too much!!!"

                              I hung up without saying another word.

                              She wanted service right now and wanted to name her own price. Click.
