I cannot remember if I shared this with you in the past but here goes.

This lady calls her husband and says; "Honey the drain in the kitchen is stopped up. The caterer will be here in an hour to start things for the tonight fundraiser and they will not tolerate any problem like this." The husband says; " Sweetheart I'm getting ready to go perform surgery. There is no way I can take care of this right now. Call a plumber and have them handle it."

The lady calls a plumber and they're there in about two hours time. She explains the problem and he clears the drain in a very short period of time. She then asks him to look at the guest bedroom sink as it has a dripping faucet that drives her nuts. He replaces the faucet washers and checks with the lady. She then asks if he can look at the ice machine under the wet bar as they have to buy ice because the machine just isn't making ice. He looks and finds a defective float valve on the reservoir. He replaces the float valve.

Four hours later the husband comes home and sees the plumber outside in his van. He goes up to the van and asks if the plumber had any luck clearing the drain. The plumber replied; "It was not a big problem. I guess you get to have this bill." The bill is for over $2,400.00. The husband goes ballistic. "That's six hundred dollars an hour. I am a neurosurgeon and I don't make that kind of money."

The plumber calmly looks at the husband and said: "When I was a neurosurgeon, I didn't make this kind of money either."

I worked as a plumber while going through college. Would have made more money if I had stayed in the plumbing business...NOT A JOKE.
