I find it very offensive that you are racially profiling all these poor immigrants to your country.... You really should be more careful, some gay guy or wacko transgender might see these posts and complain to your---- sissy gay prime minister vs_OMG::---- about you and you might lose your license for not being more sensitive to their feelings and not using the correct pronouns......
........
You are absolutely correct I may get retribution. There's an an article the other day a woman asked the prime minister if he was going to refund the province the millions of dollars it cost to welcome the hoard of illegal aliens from the US that were scared off by Trump. They have been greeted with open arm. The PM fired back at her she was racist!

Thanks for the heads up!

Hack Plumbingville

I couldn't clear this line for obvious reasons. Just another day at hack plumbingville. I packed my stuff after an hour. The guy was arguing it didn't really mater the plumbing was not done right because he fixed his hacked sink issue downstairs with his 15$ snake.

Anyway when the tenant drains her new washing machine it fill the tub real fast. The guy had cut a 12" hole from the bedroom and cutting the dryer vent to have a little more access. He wanted me to cut the abs line and insert my snake there. I told him it was too far in the wall and floor and I wouldn't be able to glue the pipes together and anyway I told him it was hack plumbing, a bunch of tees, vent 90s and pried ferncos, no vents etc. To expect that crap until he tore everything down the walls and restart proper. He believed all it needed was a little snaking, no plumbing needed and those AAV were the best thing to use, no vents we necessary. Yep he was a diy plumber himself!

I tried through the tub but all I got was a pretzel cable and snapping around my gloves even though I used the guide tube and only 8" of cable sticking out. After 5 attempts I told him that was it.

The guide tube is good so the cable doesn't sick out too much but to retrieve it you got to remove the guide to be able able to feed the cable back in the drum. Tough work in a tiny bathroom.

It's true they always start with "my friend" and funny how they get insulted real fast by their friendly plumber by stating the rates. You know what the next one in the group who has a tendency to say that I'll say sure it's 10$/hr but I'm booked till next monday, please call again.

I'll PM you, I'll get flamed eventually if I speak my mind. In this day and age there is such a thing as the "thought police".
