Plummer has Rats


On Monday I had a plummer come to replace some part on my water heater because the water was not hot. After he left the water was hot again and everything worked good. Yestraday the plummer called me and asks me if I found a rat shit near my water heater. I'm shocked. we have never had rats in our home, so if a rat shit is down there, the plummer brought it. I just called my lawyer and there is going to be a lawsuit. My lawyer told me to call a extermameter to get rid of the rats. This really has me upset and last night I had to get a hotel room because I am not sleeping in my house when there are rats. This plummer is going to pay for everything including hotels and emotinal damage. I cant even sleep in my own home because of this filthy plummer. This is discusting. Do plummers do things like this to make more money or is there some other reason?

No, it is Middle German for "rat installer". To celebrate the summer soltice the Germans used to hire plummers to put rats in each other's houses. They never used to work on water heaters, but perhaps they have had to diversify.

Are you sure you're not just overreacting to an encounter with a plummer like this one, Margo Sweeney?
There was a young plummer named Lee, Who was plumming away on Sweeney. When she moaned, "Stop your plumming, There's somebody coming." He replied, while still plumming, "It's me!!"

Germans bathe in cold water and would have had to import rats, which no German would do :o)

So far so good.

That's what plumbers do: They run adds in the yellow pages to fix your pipes and what not so they can sneak in rats and rat crap when you don't expect it.

I would call an exterminator, but whatever, as long as he or she can kill rats.

That's wise: They will come and chew on you at night and give you rabies, then you'll die. Good for Usenet, bad for you.

Why? You were obviously pretty fucked up before the rat problem you have in your dirty house.

Yes. Plumbers do this to dirty people who live in filthy houses who don't have rats yet. The plumbers brother is an exterminator or an extermameter, one or the other. Now he will make money killing the rats you have in your dirty house. Good for him. Bad for you.
or is there some other reason?
