Strange Plumbing Problems



Micah:  Do you think anyone has missed us?

Rusty:  Everyone is so busy very few have probably noticed we've been gone.

Micah:  We're not exactly back yet, but we've had this post half ready to go for several weeks now.

Rusty:  We figure since we can always use a laugh, you might need one too.  Besides, we can never resist telling a story on Jan. 


Knock on door.

Stranger:  Is this (our house number)?
 
Jan:  Yes.

Stranger:  I understand you have plumbing problems.

(Note:  We did have a plumbing problem, but our landlord sent someone to fix it two days earlier while Mr. Doug was here working on our computer that Win 10 trashed by putting it into permanent hibernation.)

Jan:  Who told you that?

Stranger:  Tom Jones (not his real name).

Jan:  Who's he?

Stranger:  **points to a company van parked on our side street**  From the plumbing company.

Jan:  Who told him?

Stranger:  I don't know.

They stared at each other a few seconds.

Stranger:  I understand you have plumbing problems.

Jan:  Who told you that?

Stranger:  Tom Jones.

Jan:  Who is he?

Stranger:  The plumber.

Jan:  But who told him?

Stranger:  I don't know.

They stared at each other another few seconds.

Stranger:  I understand you have plumbing problems.

Jan:  Who told you ... Wait!  What STREET do you want? 

Stranger:  ** names our house number but side street**

Jan:  **points up the road**  You want that house over there.

Stranger almost ran to truck and the vehicle moved up the street.  Stranger sprinted up the steps.  We could just imagine what happened.

Stranger:  Is this (our house number)?

Tenant:  Yes.

Stranger:  I understand you have plumbing problems.

But this time he had the right house!

  8. Yes, we did mis your fun posts and presence around the blogville world...but we know that sometimes there has to be times to rest, heal or just take a break...and tech troubles can force us into silence...that is the worst kind of silence...we know all about that...sigh...thankfully not happened here for quite a long while:)

    Anypaws, that was a funny story about the plumber who was at the wrong den. Maybe you could direct him here, we have some things that could use a fix up:)

  11. Hahahaha! Right numbers, wrong street! Reminds me of a Alley Cat Allies calendar that was delivered to our mailbox, which I promptly tore open. Then...I looked at the address, and it was the wrong # & street! OOPS! I taped the envelope back up, and wrote on the outside that I thought it was mine, then snuck over to the house and shoved it into their mailbox. About a week later, MY calendar arrived. Stuff like this is always good for a laugh...but not while it's happening!
