Alright, so here’s a funny plumbing story that I don’t think we’ve enough people yet. More than likely Jeff is going to kill me for telling this story. But whatever! I hope you enjoy it!
So about 6 months ago Jeff and I walk onto this job site (commercial property) to give a bid on plumbing work. The head honcho there was this guy named Evan who had some serious anger issues. Evan was the kind of boss who screamed at everyone no matter what they were doing. Anything you do around this guy is the wrong thing. We were walking along the job site with him, watching him critique everybody’s work, screaming at people, and he even started throwing screws at one guy who he caught chatting with another guy.
Needless to say I had no interest in working at this job site. I don’t care how much money you’re going to pay me, I can’t work for a guy like that. I’d never get anything done!
Well, Jeff felt different from the way that I did. He goes where there’s money and he’ll do anything to get it! So the whole time I’m laughing while Jeff is kissing Evan’s behind. All this “Yes sir” and “No sir” kind of talk. Honestly, the money we were looking at making was pretty good, but I figure we can make just as much taking on other jobs, so I decided to have a little fun.
After we spent some time talking plumbing, Evan invited us to lunch. He was placing an order over the phone for some delivery. Jeff was going to order for me, so he asked what I wanted. I told him to get me the Tube Steak. Evan asked “What do you guys want?” and Jeff replied “Get us some Tube Steak”. Evan gave us a funny look and it took every ounce of my being not to crack up. Jeff immediately turned ghostly white with fear. Evan places the order for “Tube Steak” and we could hear the guys on the other end of the phone cracking up.
Evan looked at Jeff and screamed “You some kind of comedian now!? What the f#ck is this sh$t!?”. I broke out into laughter as Jeff began to apologize. The guy asked me if this was my doing and I was totally happy to answer yes. I told him that I thought he was an a-hole and that there’s no way I’m going to work with a guy as stiff as he is.
To my surprise Evan started laughing! He walked over to me, put his hand on my shoulder and said “You know, most of these vaginas out here are scared sh*tless of me, just like your friend Jeff here. They’ve got no backbone, so I walk all over them. But you’re the type of guy I like to work with. That was a good joke”.
Jeff was and will forever be extremely embarrassed by this story. We ended up taking the job, took a couple of months to do the plumbing for this building, and Jeff was ridiculed the entire time. The nick named him “Big V” on the job site.
