I hired a plumber for all of the wrong reasons

Okay, so we needed a plumber. The new house was beginning to smell like raw sewage. That’s NEVER a good sign. So I called a plumber to come out to find out what’s wrong. We can’t have raw sewage seeping into the walls. Especially with a baby.

So the plumber who arrived is quite handsome. I’m not convinced that he knows what he’s doing, but I hired him anyway. He quoted pretty reasonably, and it has been fun watching him work. He breaks all of the cliches about plumbers.

There’s no crack. There’s no bald patch. He’s more Eenrique Iglesias with a wrench.

 But now he has ripped open my walls. I’m not having so much fun watching him anymore. He’s not my favourite person this week. My lovely new home now has holes in the dining room.

    Neat post! You have a really cool site here! And awww, he is gorgeous! I understand.

    I think you need to replumb your whole house just to keep him around. Then give me your address. You may not be single but I am and whoah I want some of that. Do you think he’s Jewish though?

      Oh here’s a trick that always works for me when the temp falls below 32 degrees. I let water trickle a little bit more than a drip through all of my pipes. I live on a houseboat on the Columbia River in Oregon and we have to do this all winter long to make sure we don’t freeze up and break the pipes. Give it a try it really does work!

    Oh Meg I sympathise…we had a plumber too (although not as cute). We had the whole house replumbed! :-p
