Today a haggler type guy calls wanting a new dishwasher install. I've stopped doing jobs for them but this one seemed more respectable and he agreed to the price. I step into this brand new modern house, nothing inside except a new fridge, new dishwasher, gas stove, laundry machines all in their wrappings.

Once I'm done he asks me to hook up the brand new washing machine and dryer, he then says my mother has her own apartment downstairs with the same new set, make me a good deal. Here we go, I wasn't having it, I said you already signed the rate, that's the rate. You pay for my time and you will pay my time to get stuff at the store... He said ok.

Same thing in the apartment below, all brand new appliances and all of a sudden a big delivery truck backs up with all new furniture! I ask the guy what do you do? I won't say what he does exactly but he's probably making 400K or more working at the hospital. I went to get parts and when I came back the garage door was open will a mercedes that looked like a sports model worth 170K or more.

I won't say what I was thinking at the moment, a good slap in the back of the head would of been nice. Then he thought the rate was less than what was written on the page in the first place. What a freaking insult.

Ask him if he lets his customers haggle about the price just as he is about to make the incision.

5:30 PM Saturday Night


Woman calls saying they have someone remove the vanity(I bet it's a hack) she tried to explain the situation and it wasn't making any sense because she was trying to find a way not to mention they had hired one. Her boyfriend took the line and tried to hide it too. Anyway while doing so he pulled the pipes with it and they heard a crack. Now it was leaking heavily in the wall and dripping downstairs and they had to shut down the main. Now they were looking for someone to open the wall to make the repairs

Sure it'll be this much...

We'll think about it.


Hahaha whatever good luck finding a cheap pirate plumber, my Chinese food take out is almost ready.

Another blocked caller.
