Words To Live By...


Skilled labor ain't cheap, cheap labor ain't skilled!

...and yes, that's the hot water tap!

"It's hard to not feel bad for the guy"- not really...this isn't accidental, it's pure negligence.

Yep, not quite worthy unless his face peeled off from the hot water.

That must have hurt like hell, the adrenaline must have thwarted the pain

Eventually, after about 40 gallons or so, I am sure the water stopped being hot.

If this was a house this guy is an idiot, just turn off the main.

If it's an apartment that might not be so easy.

I'm surprised the guy stayed in there with that hot water.

Re: Words To Live By...


So I'm trying to understand something.

Why would the plumber care how much it cost to shut off the water? Isn't that a cost you'd pass on to the customer?

Meaning that the Landlord wouldn't have to pay him extra for sensible things?

If that is the case can the landlord be held liable if any of their things were ruined?
