Pu$$y.

Has to be a really bad job for me to really care anymore. I wear rubber gloves, get **** splattered on me. There are all kinds of diseases and infections you can get. Our immune systems can handle most of them, unless that was in a prison or hospital, I wouldn't toss my ugly gloves, and even then only if they holes like my current ones do.

Toss ugly gloves for that? I toss rubbers, yes, but not not gloves because of germs. Ive been covered head to toe in sludge from medical sink sludge before. That was scary, but to toss cabling gloves because of icky stuff....

Besides, I'd never run that size cable in a 4" main. I take chances, double down on skill, just today I failed at using my pressure washer and mini jetter hoses to open a 30yo 4" corrugated eves trough line. (Still not in a position to buy something real, but have opened sludgy kitchen lines with it and cleaned iron plugged weep tiles with ease. Told him up front, if it was pine needles like he suspected, I could poke a hole with my mini and flush it with a blow bag, but no guarantee.) Hit a brick wall. Pushed my 3/8" cable with a clogchopper down not powered up to feel what was going on. Collapsed. Warned the HO if I have to dig my cable out it's extra. I felt it with my cable, sure enough. Figured I'd have less of chance with a clogchopper than a two blade.

Didn't charge him for the cable. Small town 11 miles from home, he had a very hard time finding a drain cleaner that would come out and he even asked a friend and local plumber who will use a drill, but that's it, he gave him the number of a guy he trusts an hour and a half away.

Picked up a new customer and plumber referral today.
