This Positemp was a little deep in the wall and the tile guy barely left any room to work. Trying to get the pin out was tough using needle nose pliers angling it behind the tile. It was like the old game Operation not trying to bump anything to lose the pin. I dropped it once but luckily it landed on the valve and didn’t fall in the wall.

Years ago I dropped a copper one in a wall at 3pm on a friday, customer was coming up that night. I was doing a water on for their seasonal home. We had a whole month to turn this house on but the office couldn't get me there any sooner because of bs between managers and dispatcher.

I made a clip from 14awg copper wire and then ordered 3 of each kind for my van.

This is a Tango Special:
An accent called and asked for a price to re&re a basin faucet, he said he already has a faucet that he awanted to installed. I was in the area so I went by to quote him..

..this is what he wanted installed.

It was worth the laugh.
They are all disqualified now. Once in a while I get caught though. If there were a recognition app I'd give them all my money.

Got a call to fix a leak under a lav sink. When I got there he said while you are at it, install this brand new vanity with center drawers and an 8" faucet that probably contains 14 parts. I said no I'm not doing all that now, it's late and you never mentioned this, I came here for a leak and this is a 3 hour minimum job. Dumbass thought it would take less than an hour. Gotta lower and offset the drain in the exterior wall, cut out the baseboards, drill the side of the cabinet and install the nightmare faucet.... I'm charging another trip charge to finish the job and he better not give me trouble.

As I'm driving home I got a crazy bat call, a woman wanted me to install a toilet in the evening thinking it was the same day rate, NO! bla bla bla why why it says you close at 9pm. I'll go but it's double time. Then she became an extreme nut case, she asked 3-4 times why I wanted pictures, according to her it was easy, the center was 9", the thing had brackets with something with another something??? Why would a plumber have issues installing this something that's something with a piece? WTF???

She became so obnoxious mouthing off and wouldn't listen and kept nagging. She kept this nonsense for 7 minutes! I knew I had to remain calm, I don't know what kind of crap she'd go write in a review, I got her to agree to send pics. As soon as she hung up I slammed on the brakes and parked on the side, picked up the phone and blocked the number!

I went home took a large coffee and took a 2 hour furious drive to get that stress out of me. So many insane people it's unbelievable.

Got a text from a good customer of mine. She had her kitchen laundry room remodel. The contractor hired a good plumbing company and did the finish himself. She had concerns and wanted my advice. I asked if she bought that crap from ikea. She said he went to menards…. Told her she should drag that contractor out into the street and shoot him.

Probably go and look at it tomorrow. She doesn’t want it fixed until next week.
