Last-Minute Plumber Plea

September 12, 2012 at 5:00pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

If any of you plumbers out there want a last-minute job for this weekend, I’ve got some relatively easy cash for you. Our bathroom needs a shower installed (currently there’s just a tub), and we want to put in a new tub and shower surround. It could be done any time, of course, but I’m in the mood to get it done this weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). I don’t need you to have every possible credential, but I do need you to give me some confidence that you won’t burn down or flood my house. I’m perfectly capable of that on my own, thankyouverymuch.

If you’re interested, drop me a note at brent at lincolnite (plus the rest).

Isn’t this a bit too public?

What part of it should be private?

The City of Lincoln has rules regarding plumbers for hire.  Your “credentials” phrase indicates awareness of this situation.

Back in the 1980s when I was performing unlicensed plumbery my clients would never have considered putting an ad in the Thrifty Nickel soliciting unlicensed plumbers and I, for one, would certainly have not answered such a request.

Times have indeed changed.

I never said this would be done without the appropriate permits.
