Re: OT - ongoing plumbing saga.


yep, he turned out to be a tough old bird. A wiry little guy, not more than 120 lbs, my guess.

I once had a plumber named Junior who was 78 yrs old. He didn't ask about
spiders under the house b4 climbing down into the crawl space.  I was a
little worried that I'd have to go down and help him get back out; he didn't
seem all that spry.

 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.....
