Bloody plumbers who don't show up when they're supposed to!

Yes, I am one angry bull!

Monday evening I went to wash my face and brush my teeth. Since I have a sensitive tooth I need warm to hot water, yet NONE was coming out of the hot tap, it was only cold.

Okay, I thought, the pilot light on the hot water tank has gone out, no big deal.

I went into the kitchen and tried the hot tap and that was when I looked out of the window and saw a big puddle of water near the tank, which is just outside the window.

I also heard a hissing but thought it was the people living behind me as they always have something going making noise.

I walked outside and saw water slowing being spurted out of the tank, and it was the tank that was hissing.

So it was about 8:30-9pm-ish, and ringing up the plumber I ended up waiting 15 minutes just to get an actual person.

I told him the tank was hissing and spewing water and I didn't want to touch anything in case I did something.

He took my details and told me someone would be here first thing in the morning.

First thing in the morning (Tuesday) came and went and no one came, so at 3:30pm I called up again and was told my call was not in the system and they knew nothing of it. I told them all my details  AGAIN and two hours later a plumber turned up.

All he did was turn off the gas and water, let the tank drain, and told me there was nothing else he could do and it had to be replaced so he'd be back today with a new tank.

Let's hope one actually turns up or I will be an even angrier bull!


  1. I saw an internet thingie the other day that said "Porn today is giving young people unreasonable expectations ... about how quickly you can get a plumber to come to your house".

  2. Ha! It's Friday and he's still not here!
