Did you at least use your sharpie to fix the t-shirt and sign to add the BOh on the side note, you have to where there t-shirt and place there their sign in your truck window.
Depends on how much bail out money they get .Truer words have never been typed Plumber. My shirts are much too purty for you
I wonder how long it will be before Lowe's delves in to full-fledged general contracting.

Ron I just don't think I could bring myself to wear their shirt. Whenever I have to go in there for something, I park in the next parking lot of the strip mall they are in and walk in through the contractors entrance. I just don't want anybody to see my truck there. Yes I do get some stuff there sometimes rather than drive the additional 7 miles one way to the nearest supply house. I get in and out as fast as I can. No way in Hades I'm installing their crap water heaters or wearing their shirt.
Don't get me wrong. If I had to and I may, I'd be an employee of theirs, but as a business owner subbing for them, I wouldn't do it. It would defeat my reason for being an owner.Not that I want to, it's that right now I have to, times are so tight here, I have to do what I have to do.
No they supply it all. We purchase no parts. Customer makes the purchase at the store and they contract it out to us. We pick up and go do the installs, we warranty no material they supply.Don't get me wrong.

Do you have to buy all the extra parts like straps, connectors, etc?
There is no way to change his mind, he said until this recession turns back the other way, he won't lose this account, Blowes here does not just hire handymen, it is law here to use licensed plumbers unless you are the owner of the property, or you are employed by a property management. All water heater installs require a permit, no an if's or buts about it, they can get into big trouble not following the laws.Ron, as I understand it you are working for someone else so you don't get to decide about this but please plead with your boss not to do this.
