Lmfao you guys are hilarious.. the naming of the post was used to drive attention lol.. I stopped calling them valves.. A cock is a better term in my opinion.. unless I'm talking about a ball valve because if you say ball cock then it's obviously confusing what your talking about

listening to how some people speak from other countries and their terms can be both funny and interesting at the same time...and then trying to figure out what they mean by what they say.....

No one likes to feel like they don't know something. I've seen that manifest as frustration and embarrassment and turn into anger directed at the plumber when the customer doesn't know what the hell a hose bib or a sillcock is. They all understand when I say hose faucet. I normally don't like dumbing down things, but in this case it is self preservation. We get enough customers who get pissed just because they have to pay us, no sense giving them another reason.

They hate me when I buy a new computer when they start spouting off tech terms without an explantion in English, because I don't stand for it and I let them know. I just went back to one store and paid a little more for a TV because the kid took the time to explain all the features in English for someoen who has no interest in electronics, so I could compare and figure out exactly what I wanted.

True story. Second week of training I had to deal with the home owner, a sweet old lady. The guy training me booked it when I told her she needed a new cock and ball.
