I'm looking for a Job...

Got home today to find a resume not even in an envelope in my mail box. I tell you these kids really don't do their research or put much effort into it. No presentation letter either.

It is clearly written on google and on the main page of the website there's no employees and I'm the one doing the service call. I'll give these kids the benefit of the doubt ,they might think I need a helper.

I looked it over to see he worked for 2 big companies, one of which is the most recognizable for service. That company is already looking for 3 employees in the newspaper and man they rotate a lot of guys. I wonder why but from what customers say they aren't very professional. I can see why if they send out kids that have 0 experience all alone.

He didn't work for both very long and then I saw he worked at the hardware store so that means I've seen him before. If I'm not mistaking he was the one arguing with me he could install gas water heaters while I had told him he needed a gas certificate plus his plumbing ticket. Looks like they put him to pasture. If it's the same guy he had no car! You need a freaking car to get to work!

Help it's an emergency, the water heater guys can't....


This afternoon this guy calls me up in a little panic asking if I can change a main valve and he already called the city how to shut the curb stop. I said sure what's the problem? He went on to say the main valve wasn't shutting completely and it was spraying so the water heater guys shut the main completely and couldn't finish the installation.

I told him to make to book an appointment and when the city was ready I'd go. I didn't say anything to the home owner hoping it was in the fake plumber I was following in his foot steps or the illegal water heater guys.

An hour and a half later he calls saying the 2 guys called their boss and finally were able to shut it off. I asked who they were and it was a big company! It shows again they send out kids without experience or even trade certificates and the home owner was calling another company to bail them out.

Wow!

Love kids that work at supply houses that never had a real plumbing job.

A DIY in dire need of help!


A diy called me because he had water puddles on the floor, he redid his own tile as you can see he made the spout hole a little big or he scratched the glaze off.

He had removed the spout and when he re-installed it he saw a whole bunch of water on the floor, so he went and bought a new one. He couldn't stop it from leaking so he went back to buy some nipples try different techniques and he twisted the hell out of the spout so much he mangled it with the pliers.

After fixing that I saw a second leak above and I fixed that too. He came back and exclaims my caulking I just did is all ruined from the water dripping on the tub. I asked to see his silicone because it looked like the wrong one. He hands me this window and door trim paintable caulking. hahha, oh man what an acid trip. I told him to wipe it all off and do it over.

Beauty and the Beast


I had the not so fun job this morning with this freaking monster. As if it wasn't humongous enough it was sitting on the carpet, the whole bathroom was carpet!!!!

It was so damn heavy and it was almost impossible to lift this one piece biatch, I wobbled it out. I cut the carpet for the new one. I had to go home and get my appliance dolly to take it outside. Gotta go back in two weeks to his house and bring it to the curb.

Anyway, as a bonus check out the shower pan tape repairs!

I've never seen a marble toilet around here. That thing looks like a beast. I bet you could post that on Craigslist and someone would buy it, haha.

Also, I never got the allure of having carpet in a bathroom. That's just gross.

I t's not real marble, an epoxy /resin. It would be impossible to have a real marble toilet.

It's a nightmare putting stuff up for sale, it attracts undesirable most of the time.

I didn't think it was real marble, haha. I just meant marbleized toilets. I've seen a whole bunch of different colors but it's always been one solid color throughout.
