    Re: Things we dislike

    Oh. And I also hate it when the the guy they had before calling me sold them every service they didn't need so that they don't have any money left to pay me to do the one little thing that actually needed done first.

      I hate having to fix other people's screw ups and homeowners that think they know more than the plumber.

        Oh you can say that again!

        Sometimes I wonder why a customer calls me in to do work, when they are more knowledgeable about Plumbing than me. Sometimes I just want to hand over my tool bag and say "have at it my friend".

          aquasource shower valves. the lady was upset when I told her the truth when she asked about the quality.
          No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

              Today I had 5 valves to replace in a house, with the main valve being one of them.

              This house is easily 60 years old, and only has 1 main shut off valve that needed to be replaced, cause the handle just spins and spins and spins and spins and spins.

              Can't locate the curb cock, cause the f*cker is under ground somewhere, and I don't have a metal detector. Water company says they will be out sometime next week (freaking bums) and it ruined my entire morning. I also want them to put their key on it, incase it breaks, so we can have it taken care of right then and there.

              So I hate waiting and depending on other people so I can get my job done.

                Aside from all the crap materials we are forced to work with everyday.

                Thanks to Home Depot everyone can be a plumber. Too many damn pansies in the business now. Wussies that gag at the sight and smell of a stopped up toilet. You know them, helpers that show up an hour late for work 3 days a week and then want to go home at 2:30. I feel privileged that they even graced me with their presence. No drivers license, no tape measure, no pencil, not even a pair of Channelocks...WTF?

                Actual phone message in my voicemail:

                "I overslept and missed the bus. Can you come pick me up then ride by 7-11 so I can get some smokes and a cup of coffee? I'll pay you back on Monday when I get paid"

                        was at hd yesterday. took a half hr to wade through all the various sharkbites to find a 3/8" compression t. Could not buy 3/8" soft copper tubing. Had to buy a toilet supply to cut off what I needed to tee a kitchen sink supply to a dishwasher.

                        there are a lot of things I hate, but, right now, after having to deal with two of them today, what I hate most is the dumbass and his protoges I keep following who thinks it good practice to dope up all p-trap threads with plumbers putty.

                        pex makes water taste like plastic.
                        This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                          When I go to a home because they say there's water around the base of the toilet but it turns out someone can't aim.

                                Those gray plastic pop-ups are the worst.
