It seems that I may just be dealing with clients of a slightly higher stature.

Today I went out with a female colleague to sort out  a pool pump that was tripping the breaker, and an irrigation pump that was leaking.

Screw the pumps.

Look what I found inside the garage...  :drif:

Maserati. I didn't get the model ...   :drif: :drif: :drif:

oh, and a Harley...  :peepwall:  :drif:  :imaposer:

Third World problems in the aftermath of the hurricane :lol8:

I'm just so happy for you that you are not with the little twatwaffle Boss any longer. He would have sent you out armed with a plunger and gum boots to unblock all the backed up toilets caused by the flooding. I trust Karma has made sure that that is the way he spent his day ;D
For the love of it.

Plot twist:

Twatwaffle Little Boss will have to come to our house soon to fix the hurricane damage (we lost some roof shingles, an outdoor light, and a door latch broke). The realtor lady called yesterday to ask if anything was damaged and presumably opened a service ticket for our address...

THAT should be interesting.  :pot:

High definition views of Irma's path. There is often less damage than the news media claims.

Hi Zogs,

I've just caught up after being away since May due to a new job.  Glad to see you guys survived Irma relatively unscathed and that the new job is looking up.  May things keep going onwards and upwards.

Eish, would you trust Little Boss not to damage your house or do a crappy job? He sounds like a vindictive and entitled little twatwaffle.

Mrs Zog would never do that, she is a nice lady.

Your faith in my goodness is touching and appreciated but sadly misplaced...  :biggrin:

No, actually, you're right. I wouldn't do that. But it's nice to think about.

OK, so I haven't posted for a couple of days.

I have been busier than the proverbial one-legged man in an arse kicking contest.  ;D

I worked late on Thursday and Friday. Hard work, but good hard work. I got complimented by the boss for my work and attitude. I forgot what it feels like to be appreciated.

I also got the van that I am gonna be using at work sorted out. It was running pretty rough, missing and wanting to die on acceleration. So I fitted 8 new spark plugs and 8 new plug leads. Yip, of course its a V8  :ricky:  It is a Chevy 2500 panel van, and fully kitted out as a work van. Even has a GPS supplied. After fitting the new plugs (the old plugs were seriously shot, gaps were more than double recommended size, and electrodes almost burned away) the van ran perfectly. I loaded it up with lots and lots of plumbing fittings, both PVC and Copper, as well as 3 different water pumps, pressure switches, pressure guages, check-valves, and a whole lot of other miscellaneous stuff... and also my hand tools. And some basic power tools...  Friday I started running calls on my own, in my dedicated van. Seriously cool.

Saturday I was off, but helped out by cleaning the house because Mrs Zog had a full weekend of work. Then I did some work on the little boat, and I cleaned out my workshop. I also finished off sorting out the garage. I got the boat prepped for this mornings fishing trip.

I was up at 5:30 this morning to go fishing, was on the water at first light. But nothing was biting. I went fresh water fishing, because the lagoon was too rough for my little boat. The fresh water was still very high after the hurricane, and the water looked like chocolate milk with all the mud and sediment still in suspension. So I called it early and went home. After putting the boat away I mowed the lawn and did some weedeating. Then some more chores around the house.

This evening I sorted out the paperwork that will allow my son to leave SA without me being present. Or his mom. The paperwork will be mailed to my ex-MIL who is visiting her sister in California, and she will hand-carry them to SA for me. That way they don't get lost. Just 74 sleeps before my Boy heads over to see me. Fuckit I miss him lots man...  :-[ :-[

Now it's time for bed. Work again tomorrow, gonna be good.  :thumleft:

Good to hear from you again, thought that you had gotten lost between all your new larney clients and forgot about us ous here. :peepwall:
I am glad new boss sees what he got in you and am sure you will quickly be better off that you were.

Hurricane Maria is on the way, expected to strengthen today.
Hopefully storm Lee will dissipate before landfall.

Lee will fade away by the middle of the week.

Maria, however is now a full Cat 5 Hurricane. She will hit the Leeward Isles tomorrow, and Puerto Rico as well. Those poor people have just survived Irma, now another one comes. The price of living in paradise?

There are still people without power a week after the storm. In certain areas the flood waters are still rising! A lot of people, us included, got off very lightly with Irma. The TV is showing some people who have nothing, and have lost their homes completely. Uninsured. Now destitute. America may be a "rich" country, but there are some people here that are very poor.

My heart goes out to them.  :'(
