I get a call today Only doing light duty due to sore back. It was a Laundry drain I did the day before I hurt my back.

Lady calls up yelling you did not clear my drain there is water all of the floor. So I told her don't worry I check it out but not today because of my back.With an attitude she sais fine and slams down the phone.

I get there and see water all over floor ok test drain OK. Water heater let go. Service charge she was not happy.:furious:

Not looking forward to tomorrow. Have to put in a 120 ft sewer and 80 ft water line. temp is to be close too or over 100 degrees heat index about 115. I can gaurantee I will be a grumpy sob by the time I get home tomorrow night. Plus the customer I am working for is the kind that has to be standing over you the whole time you are working. I hope I can control my patience with her.

I have been working in power plants and factories all week. Extreme heat. But ya know, it's a dry heat.
Dry heat is bad too...I went to vegas and my lips split open and my nose split open....sucked. Here you get to walk around in wet clothes all from sweat. You get those nice salt rings when it dries on your shirt

Just came back from africa and it was so hot we really did fry an egg on the concrete. You could set your hardhat on the ground for 5 minutes and squeeze the sides in and leave your handprints on it. I was freezing when I came back to 80 degree weather.

Whats fun is to be outside cleaning a sewer with open reel machine and have nosy customer standing way too close, slinging water, and do ,most customers I simply ask them to step back or get wet but some type customer you say it real fast and low and watch them start jumping esp if they have on shorts or light colored pants eddie
