It’ll be funny tomorrow…I promise!
You’re getting ready for a large dinner party for your boss and his wife. The babysitter is on her way to wrangle the kids while the adults dine in relative calm. The kids are eating chicken nuggets and watching Team UmiZoomi and everything seems to be going swimmingly. Until…you hear a portentous gurgle after flushing the toilet. You are in your all-together, towel on your head, when the water starts to rise in the bowl. “No, no, NO!” As the toilet overflows, the doorbell rings. Of course, they are early!
There isn’t one of us who hasn’t been caught in our “all-together” while all h—e—double toothpick breaks loose. And it is never funny when it is happening. But have you ever noticed how those trials and travails become the engaging stories we tell at our next party, or post to Facebook—only after, of course, order has been restored and peace returns.
Being in the drain cleaning industry for over 15 years, I have heard lots of these stories from customers, from friends and family, and even from relative strangers who find out what we do. I will be sharing some of our customer stories and other things we have seen and experienced over the years on this blog from time to time. They are our “Tales from the Underground.” And they are challenging, sometimes cringingly awful, but most of all they ended up being very funny……..tomorrow!
