In the Scam Home Warranty business, the people are represented by two separate but equally lazy groups: The Authorization agents, who deny claims and smoke like chimneys, and the technicians who lie through their teeth to snag a few extra bucks. These are their stories CLICK CLICK
(background) This is probably an exaggeration but I feel like drain lines fail more often that any other kind of pipe in a normal residential system. The pressure coming into the system from the mainline and utility are less than when you flush something you shouldn't, empty half your refrigerator with your garbage disposal after a power blackout, or some other rare occurrence that weakens pipes in a hurry. Proving not-normal conditions on a pipe is far harder than running with rust if you have it.
Despite double-stuff Oreos coming out in the 1970s, I don't recall having any until I was around ten when I noticed them at the supermarket and begged my grandpa to buy some.
I regretted this choice and learned immediately that my favorite part of the cookie was the black part not the filling. Over the years I've discovered that Oreo doesn't even make the best version of that part of the sandwich as Hydroxos' or even the generic brand tend to be crispier and crunchier.
With this in mind I got a big box of generic non-Oreos a the dollar store on Sunday and went about lazily basking in every bite as the day slogged on around me and the small bowl of milk I had poured turned the most delicious shade of black from dunking them.
My phone took me out of the cookie induced torpor when it awoke with urgency, dragging me all the way to Texas.
Me: "SHW themadkingnqueen," I muffled while finishing up my last bite.
Tech: "Sid's plumbing of West Texas I got claim #."
Me: "Great, you at Mr. Smith's house now?"
Me: "Ok lets get going on the diagnosis."
Tech: "Got a leak from the second floor drain line coming off the guest bedroom."
Me: "Where's the leak starting from?"
Tech: "Downspout from the shower."
Me: "Can you see it?"
Tech: "No, but I can see the big water stain on the wall of the kitchen."
Me: "Any idea what caused it?"
Tech: "Probably normal wear and tear but won't know until I get the wall open."
Me: "Can you give me a quote?"
Tech: "$100 to open it up from here."
Me: "What kind of pipe is it?"
Tech: "Cast iron."
Me: "Ok, did the customer pay you the SCF?"
Tech: "Yes $55 on the spot."
Me: "You can bill us $45 to make access but yo... keep reading on reddit ➡
I think he's done after covid. This might be a solid shot at knocking out a top contender in the playoffs when they think they got a steal by picking up Conner who will most likely fail in the finals against Indy.
Makes me smile every time. It’s the little things.
Dear Wonderful Humans,
Is Becoming homies with my new tenants a bad idea, whats the harm? Steer clear? The wifey and I have really hit it off over common interests and have been chatting quite a bit since their tour this weekend. I am a pretty good judge of character most days they seem like a sincerely sweet couple, is becoming friends a Landlord Landmine waiting to happen? Lease is 2 years and they'll live in my neighborhood.
Sincerely, First-time Landlord Lady
Question, I have a base that’s pretty locked up and today I walked in and there was a landmine placed but nothing was taken. I am not sure how they got in, nothing is broken or missing. Can landmine just spawn randomly? Or did I get played?
I am so sorry, dude who had all the rmats and everything to build it! I knocked over a drink and looked away, and took my hands off the controls for a second. Just one split fucking second, and then BOOMCRASH! It all happened so fast I couldn't think through that series of actions! Afterward, I logged off, out of shame and fear of seeing you at the spawn point... sorry about all of that!
