When I got there, it looked like they had tried to pry the cover plate off of a moentrol valve. It was literally torn where one of the screws goes through it and all jagged and jacked up.

Here's what actually prompted my post in this thread though.

More on this :

Later that night I saw a facebook post pop up temporarily : A lost dog matching the breed of dog they had at their house and even on the same street. What a coincidence right? Yeah, no it was the same people.

I clicked on the post and it said : The plumber was here earlier today and accidentally let her out.

I was furious, because when I was leaving the dog was going ape-sh*t over a cat across the street, and wasn't going to let me be the first one out the door, so I told the girl there that I would wait for her to get ahold of the dog before I left. She held the dog less than 2 feet from me, I went out the door, shut the door behind me, I loaded up my tools and turned around in the road, nothing was going on between my house and the front door as I was pulling away.

Why can't people just take responsibility for themselves instead of blaming somebody else? I'm glad she deleted it because I was ready to freak the eff out on her.

Fast forward : Today landlord asked me to go take some measurements so i can give him an estimate on a new pedestal install. The girl's boyfriend is there and tells me : Yeah I had to take it out because my kid was pulling on it while he was in the tub and it could have killed him.

News f*cking flash : Kids die all the time from being unsupervised in a bath tub.

These people are just terrible decision makers.

He's more of a put things back the way I found them type of person rather than a know how they should look kind of person.

Same house. Tub spout replacement and lav drain. Forgot to get a picture of the lav, but had to cut the cabinet and wall.

Is that two couplings to cheat on being short pipe?


I saw that once under a mobile home. 3 x 3" couplings right next to each other and each one had about 1/4" engagement into each side.

Needless to say the crawlspace was a lake of sh*t.
