    Tell the guy in the shorts to wear real man's pants to protect himself from the poopoo.

    Kept at it for hours? And now two more hours? Maybe that line should be replaced rather than spending all that time and money on roots that will just grow back...I generally try not to snake longer than 3 hours...any longer than that and clearly there must be a bigger problem

    While I generally agree with that, some customers just refuse to dig.
