    Default beer pong gone wrong

    Went to a call for a clogged sewer. the tenant was very very unwilling to let the maintance guy or myself. Enter the home. She finaly let us in. The smell coming from the basement was unreal. It was very strong once the door was opened. We went to the basement and noticed that it was flooded with atleast 2 feet of standing water. mind you it is like 8 pm. We seeing several little kids running around the house. spring into action getting the basement pumped out and. The maintenance guy was so concerned that he helped me unload my gear and get it into the basement.

    I run the sewer 100 feet and fill nothing. I next put a water house down the broken cleanout and let it run for 30 minutes while also letting the tub run. No water in the cleanout. now i am like what the duce! Go have the non english speaking tenant running the kitchen sink. BINGO. water starts shooting up thru a half arsed concreted floor drain. Breakout the ol k 50 and pull back a ping pong ball about 12 feet in. Water goes instantly. Talk to tenant. her husband admits to loosing the ball during a game of beer pong. The Wife admits to pouring all of their grease down the kitchen line.

    Total of 5 hours at overtime for me.

    total of 7 hours of overtime for the maintenace guy

    I had a job where my buddy Mike and I knocked on the door, and the lady that answered the door asked us to wait there a minute. She then called the office and asked if the company has two big thugs working for them. The lady that answered the phones for this company said oh yes that is Ron and Mike they are sweethearts let them in. That is when I learned that people do judge you by your appearance. So I stopped wearing combat boots, worn out jeans, sleeveless t-shirt with a sleeveless flannel shirt, oh and let my hair grow out some.
