Do NOT hire these plumbers!

Ever have such a bad experience with a company that you had to actively recommend against them? Yeah, that was last week for me.

I had a pipe break, which suuuuucks. If you've never had it happen, I definitely recommend against it. Anyway, it's not the first time we've had issues with this house's plumbing, so I avoided the local company we went with last time. Instead, a few friends recommended that I get these guys from out of town -- I shouldn't call them friends, though, because they're DICKS for recommending these guys.

So we shut off our water supply until they got here, because I didn't want to turn my yard into a swimming pool. When they got here, they didn't do ANYTHING. Sure, maybe I should've taken it as a bad sign when the guy who answered their phone started with a frantic "Princess?!" instead of hello, but I just figured he'd been having relationship issues. We've all been there, right?

Stupid me, for not stopping at the awkward phone greeting. When they got there, they spent a little time looking at it, and went out to their van for some supplies. On the way, they saw my pet turtles and just LOST THEIR SHIT. They took them out of their aquarium and started stomping on them, calling them something that almost sounded like a racial slur. That wasn't enough, either, because they ransacked my fridge and ate the mushrooms. I don't even LIKE mushrooms, but I was going to cook with them for a friend's birthday!

Then, after them doing nothing but eating mushrooms and killing my pet turtles, they had the stones to BILL ME. And they wanted a lot, too. Demanded it be in some weird currency, with some obscure golden coins that had no design on the face.

This post is a public service announcement -- fuck the Mario Bros. Plumbers, and either go local or learn how to do it yourself.

Fuck these guys.

Those plumbers are rude! They don't even deserve a penny! I suggest that you search well on the reviews of certain plumbing companies before getting their service. Or better yet, search on self-help instructions on how to do it yourself.

That's too funny, and a little sad, too. This is the reason why I only go with plumbers recommended by my friends. I did this for my bathroom renovations Melbourne, and I never ran into problems.
