Plumbers… Thanks Emre!

Top comment: “OB sitting on top of truss, can’t go much lower than that, besides underneath trusses. Architects and builders draw up these unrealistic layouts bathrooms so far from stack (sewer riser )without considering a drains fall or dimensions, expecting plumber to perform miracles. Plumber rings up builder “can’t possible get the grade to a point with this truss and layout. Builder responds “just sit it hard under truss we’ll drop the ceiling in that section. Volume builders

Chippie porn. Thanks Matt!

Top comment: “Chippie porn is more like some middle aged slag hanging about the tui pub in a cocktail dress that fit her a decade ago, looking for some fat slob of a tradesman to call her fourth husband just so she can suck him off in the handicapped bathrooms for a round of free drinks. That’s chippie porn”

“When invoices don’t get paid” Extreme, but many would argue it’s justified… Thoughts? Thanks Robbie!

Top comment: “What pisses me off as a tradesman is this. You go to a mechanic, jobs done paid that day. Go to a shop to buy a shirt, paid that day. Go to a movie, paid that day. Then there is tradies… paid weeks later when people dont answer phone calls or go MIA. We may look like we live a high life but thats not true. There are alot of struggling tradies with families. We all dont have 100k plus just in a bank account. We dont all own boats. We dont all go on luxury holidays. So pay up and dont be assholes to the people who come make your home a improvement or build your home.”
