Was bored, Very slow day today.

OK you arrive at the home owners home and man you have to go to the bathroom really bad. Do you?
1. Ask to use their restroom
2. Hold it and hope fore the best
3. The bucket in the van trick
No stores of any kind in the area. What would you do?

Plan ahead. The need to drop the kids off at the pool isn't an all of the sudden thing.

If you arrived at the clients house and needed to go. You shoulda stopped on the way.

They are paying you to work, not catch up on your reading.

Not so true, Matt. I am anything but regular, I take that back, I regularly blow mud at least 6 times a day. Being a plumber, I always have a reason to be in the bathroom. I figure since any employer is legally bound to provide toilet facilities, and the customer is employing me, they are providing toilet facilities.

There is a reason why I like cleaning drains....

I can blow off a fart and when it smells real bad I can blame it on the work I'm doing...

Customer said:
Oh man that smells nasty!
Redwood said:
Yea, what the hell you been eating anyway....
Put it right back on em...
Gawd I'm so freakin rancid....
I smell worse than a main line...
My eyes weren't watering before I farted...

Sounds like a thread for Roast Duck!~



I remember using a floor drain once, and of course I was replacing the water heater, draining it, and of course floaters start rising out of the drain and customer comes wobbling down the steps...great.

:laughing:

"Bet you didn't know you had a backed up main did ya? heh"


4" 90's work well too if you know the speed it's coming out. Done the bucket trick so many times at the truck, I can't count that high.

The last time I did the dump in a home, it was at an empty rental property that was drug raided weeks earlier, mostly empty and here comes some dude wanting to know why a white dude is stinking up his bathroom. If there was anything left, it would of shot out of me when he pushed the door opened. Bad neighborhood, guy wasn't happy either.

Okay my sins are forgiven :blink:
