For example. Decent dry cleaning. I found dry cleaning here to not only be very expensive but also incompetent when it comes to getting stains out. I'll admit it, I'm a stainer. So I'm forced to save up all of my dry cleaning for hotels when I fly somewhere for the show.
But I'm not ranting about dry cleaning today. Today it's plumbers.
Okay when I had toilet trouble, it was hard to get someone to call me back.
We caught a guy in his truck on the way home one day and we got him to clear our slow toilet.
Little did we know, that was all he would be good for.
We called him a couple weeks later for a leaking toilet and leaking shower.
Long story short we ended up with a broken toilet, he leaned it against the wall and it slid down. He replaced it, but the new one's way smaller. And he couldn't fix the leaking shower, he had to order a part.
He then called us to get the brand name on the shower again.
He then came back yet again to get the number off the part he needed for the shower to finally place the order. (Now by this time there has been a steady stream of water coming from my shower for days.)
We also informed him that while he was away our water pressure dropped drastically. He made the pressure worse. His response was "Do you guys have bad luck in this house?"
No sir. Just bad plumbers.
We have now called a familiar plumbing chain. The first guy came out and couldn't do anything. I'm learning to live without a plumber that get something done in one trip.
Today they're back and it looks like things are moving ahead.
We haven't heard from the other plumber but we're kinda racing them right now. Whoever gets the job done first, wins.
I just want to shower again.
P.S. The old plumber just called to say he could be here in 3 to 4 hours. We fired him.
