Re: OT - ongoing plumbing saga.

I understand your frustration but remember--a large part of Hollywood would be unemployed if it wasn't for fear of the creepy-crawlies, spiders, ants, scorpions, snakes, rats. Whoever heard of a movie called "Slime, the Revenge of the Slug People"?

Well, the plumber finally came out today (my neighbor was home so he was "babysitting") and get this. He calls me and says - ma'am, you have spiders under your house. I said hello, the house is 150 years old, what did you expect? Well he just can't be going under there under he kills the spiders and he'll be back tomorrow. I said I have a better idea, spray go to lunch, come back and they'll be dead. Oh no he says, can't take that chance. I told him NO aerosols, I have a cat in the house. So he got some Viper - whatever that is - a pump spray and sprayed all under there and will be back in the morning. I told him I am not happy having to take tomorrow off for this, and you better be back. He said he would. I'm thinking this guy is
in the wrong line of work.  Plumbers are always going under houses, in
cabinets under sinks, in old water heater closets which all are spider
prone. HELLO?? He had better do a DARN good job because I am NOT happy w/ this rube at this point. Looks like there are two leaks, not one. I'm so delighted - not. And he's no kid, Bobby (neighbor) says he looks to be in his mid-40's. I was flabbergasted. My boss looked at me like I was nuts when I told him about it. So here we go - another exciting evening of no
water.  Sheesh.

thanks for letting me vent.....
