Do you really think that is a good use of your time?

The following is not directed at anyone in particular, rather food for thought.

I get the frustration with rude people ignoring the banner . . . asking, damn near demanding free advice, as if they are entitled. And I understand the flip comments directed their way.

Let's call it what it is though - it is RUDE. It is rude for unwelcome guests to venture in, and (justified or not) it is just as RUDE to treat others with disrespect.

The unwelcome guests do NOT come here to intentionally pi$$ anyone off or hurt anyone, so discussing intentionally doing harm to another is sad, really SAD!

If you have children, I hope you are not condoning that it's alright to be judge, jury, and executioner whenever they are wronged. When we are wronged, we can choose to rise above, or sink to their level.

A professional holds to a set of standards (CODE)! It is what separates him / her from the rest.

A decent human being holds to a set of standards (VALUES / MORALS)! It is what separates him / her from the rest.

We all succumb. Everyday we have the opportunity to choose to rise above our basest wants / needs.

This topic brings up a call we recieved a few weeks ago. A suit sounding guy tells me he has an issue with his kitchen faucet being loose on the granite top, and that his sink is deep and doesn't know how we would even get to it. I replied that we have certain tools for those situation and he asked what type of tools and like an idiot I mentioned the basin wrench. When I asked for his address to schedule the service, he changes his mind and says he will call back later, that he had to go over the price with his wife, which wasn't much in my opinion for what it was.

Now, I try to believe this guy wasn't Phishing for information from me, but if he was so help me I hope he busted his knuckles with the cheap non functioning basin wrench from the box store, that we've all seen re packaged, that a guy like the suit would return after he's finished using it. Lol. People suck sometimes.

Next time you will handle it differently.

Mr. H.O., that's a tough one you got there. I'll do my best and put my ***x of years plumbing to good use on this one. Lol

Loot at this forum's Business section. It looks like a DIY'er wet dream. I mean, there are plumbing contractors who can't spell their name, but want to know how to do accounting. Or websites. Or my favorite: "how do I know where my customers come from"?

We all are guilty of working out of our skill set and asking advice instead of asking who to call. I mentioned this fact more than a few times here and it was explained to me that the business owners here don't have the money to hire a bookkeeper on a quarterly basis.

Sure, just like these interlopers don't have the money to hire a plumber.

Without the intention of kissing up, after reading this thread I have to say:
This is why women should be ruling the world.
We men have made a mess of things.

With that said, I can't help but listen to the devil on my left shoulder when some entitled, house flipping mamaluke is demanding advice over here. I think a balance is in order here.
I wouldn't give dangerous advice, especially concerning gas.
However, I think extremely sarcastic, or advice to make someone run in circles is good, clean fun.

Isn't there a way to close membership on this forum? Basically you must post an intro and then be approved by a moderator to have access. Wouldn't that solve alot of the issues of non welcome people joining in. I'm sure a few will seek past by providing false credentials.
