Who is PlumberX

November 7, 2010

clyde-rescan-for-van-lay-out-700-320Who is Plumber X?

 

Narrator: This is an explanation of the true identity of  PlumberX.  It all started back in 1980. First, let us understand PlumberX.  Plumberx  comes from a planet far, far away. A planet in our galaxy that no scientist or astrologist has yet to understand or identify. This planet is known as planet X.  One Light year ago while PlumberX aka Cacb was out looking for parts for a plumbing job on his planet, he happened to catch a look at our planet Earth on the monitor of his service ship. Out of curiosity, he decided to get a closer look at Earth. He was amazed at all of the water that covered the Earth.

 

PlumberX: (thinking to himself.) This is a very primitive Planet. All of this water and no one has it under control. I must land here and see if there is anything that I can do to help these Aliens control all of this water.(With this in mind, PlumberX  called back to planet X aka the planet Tayon , and explained that Earth had all of this water that was out of control. In addition, he said that he would like to stay on planet Earth until all of this water is under control. His superior, Diezor agreed.

 

Diezor: Yes, you must stay and resolve the problem, but you have only five light years to fix the problem. Get back here as fast as you can, Cacb. We have another planet that has no water at all!

 

PlumberX: Yes, I will

 

Narrator:

After getting the acknowledgement to land on Planet Earth, PlumberX entered Earths’ atmosphere. When PlumberX entered the atmosphere, he was picked up by radar. After landing, PlumberX was met by Earth scientists and government officials. PlumberX stepped out of his service ship and said to the Earth people with a big smile %##&&*&##.  The people on Planet Earth did not understand what PlumberX was  saying. The government officials and scientist on Earth thought  PlumberX may be a danger to them.   The Earth scientists and government officials grabbed PlumberX and took him back to their laboratory to find out if he was friend or foe .  After five days of studying PlumberX,  the Scientist failed to realize that PlumberX was also studying them.  During those five day’s PlumberX  learned to comprehend  the English language and started to speak English rather fluently.

 

PlumberX: Hi My name is Cacb and I am from the Planet Tayon. I am not here to hurt you , but only here to help you.

 

Narrator: The Scientist look around at each other is amazement.

 

 Scientist:  So you speak our language.

 

 PlumberX:Yes, Cacb said after I have had the opportunity to  study and observe you. I was able to pick up bits and peaces of your language. This is a very strange language to understand, but quite interesting.   You Earthlings use so many different words to say the same thing. Where I am from we speak using very few words and we do not have any trouble communicating with one another.

 

 Scientist: Where is this planet that you are from?

 

PlumberX: I am from the planet Tayon, eight light years from the Red Planet.

 

Scientist: Mars?

 

PlumberX: This Mars you speak of, does it have a ring around it? 

 

Scientist: Why, yes.

 

PlumberX: Well, yes this would be the closest planet to us.

 

Narrator: One of the Astrologers listening to the conversation spoke.

 

Astrologer: We have been studying Planets for years.  We could never pick up any reading or data on our satellites concerning your Planet. We just called it Planet X

 

PlumberX: Yes, I understand. Many light years ago, the Scientist on our planet came up with a way to build a force field around the planet so that no alien from any of the worlds could get through the atmosphere without our knowledge. Although this was a good way to protect our planet from intruders from other worlds, it has kept our planet isolated from the rest of  Galaxy.  

 

Scientist: (Yelled out) . Oh man, the drinking fountains are broke again. Someone call a Plumber.

 

PlumberX: Having a problem getting water out of that drinking fountain.

 

Scientist: Yes, this is the third time this month. The Plumber says he cannot understand why it keeps breaking down.

 

PlumberX: May I?

 

Scientist: Yes, by all means.  PlumberX took the drinking fountain apart.

 

PlumberX:Uhmmm. Then he reached underneath and turned a few things and twisted some other things.

 

PlumberX: Ok, try it know.

 

Scientist: Wow, that was great! It is fixed. How did you know what to do?

 

PlumberX: This is all we do on my planet. We control water, and we make it safe to drink and use for all kinds of things.

 

Scientist: On Our planet, someone that does that is called a Plumber.

 

PlumberX: Yes, Plumber. I like that.

 

 Scientist: Well Well! We have a Plumber from the planet X.

 

Scientist: Well, Plumber from planet X or should I just call you PlumberX.

 

PlumberX: Yes, I like that, PlumberX.

 

Scientist: PlumberX, yes that’s what we will call you, PlumberX.

 

PlumberX: May I ask you? What shall I call you?

 

Scientist: Yes, Names?

 

PlumberX: Names, I should call you names?

 

Scientist:( Laughter breaks out) No! No! We have different names. For example, Mike is my first name and Orr is my last name.

 

PlumberX: I have a friend on Tayon that we call Orr. He make everyone as you say, laugh. He is very popular on Tayon.

 

Scientist Mike Orr: See, I told you that I have family members that are out of this world. (Everyone begins to laugh, including PlumberX)

 

Scientist Mike: All jokes aside. As I said PlumberX, my name is Mike Orr; This is Chungi; This is Adrena. The woman that will not get off of the computer is Claudia. The guy standing next to you is Robbie. This lovely lady is Ellen.  Ellen is the one that picked you up on radar.

 

PlumberX: But I do not understand, Mike Orr. You are the only one with two names.

(Laughter breaks out)

 

Mike Orr: Sorry, PlumberX, I forgot tell you that we do not always call each one another by our first and last name. In most cases, we just call each other by our first name.

 

PlumberX: Oh, I see (smiling) I understand now. Thank you…… Mike.

 

Mike: (Laugh) There you go PlumberX, that’s it. You will fit right in here on Earth, but we must keep your identity a secret.

 

PlumberX: I do not understand, I just want to help.

 

Mike: PlumberX, you are from a world that is much more advanced than Earth. Things that may appear normal to you may seem amazing to people on Earth.  In some cases some things may even scare people on Earth. This could cause problems for you and the people of Earth.

 

PlumberX: Yes, Mike Orr, you are right. What can I do to help the people of Earth, and not cause panic?

 

Mike: PlumberX, you seem to be a very nice guy.  However, as a scientist here on Earth, On Earth,  scientists are responsible for the health and well being of that people that reside here. We will not hold you any longer against you will, but if you do continue to stay here on Earth, we must monitor you very closely. PlumberX, do you understand?

 

PlumberX: Yes, Mike Orr I do understand. It is very important that you and the rest of the Scientists do your job. I would like to stay here on Earth and help.  I will obey your rules and do as you wish.  In time, I will prove myself to you, and build your confidence in me.

 

PlumberX: (Smiled)

 

Mike Orr: I am sure we can count on you, PlumberX. I have a good feeling about you.

 

PlumberX: (Smiled)

Plumber Service (Things To Do Before The Plumber Gets There)

November 7, 2010
1.Make sure the area the Plumbing is going to work in is clear of debris or hazards chemicals and cleaners. Remove boxes or any books furniture also that may be in the way. Why because some Plumbers will not work in hazards condition and If they do have to move every thing in the way out of the way to make plumbing work area safe and clean it will cost Plumbing rates or more.

2.Your kids are very cute, but please make sure your child or children are not in the way of the plumber and not playing with the plumbers tools, YES! this happens. A plumber would love to answer all your kids question after all the plumber is on the clock.

3.Please any animals dogs cat’s etc. I love animals my self , but put your animals away when the plumber is there. You never know some plumbers may be allergic to animal.

4.Don’t help the Plumber unless he or she ask. Although your gesture is very much appreciated it’s just that some time home owner may be in the way and make the job more difficult. As Plumber I know you want to be helpful and we are grateful for you kindness.

5.Following the Plumber all around the house not a good idea. Even the best plumber needs to focus on he or she job. When the costumer is following plumber around the house and talking it makes it hard for the plumber to concentrate on what he or she should be doing. We love to answer all your question, but this should be done before the job starts. It’s kind of like a back seat driver or some one reading over your shoulders.

6.Before the Plumber starts. Give the plumber some history of the problem if you can, be honest about the problem if you worked on it before the plumber got there that’s OK we all do it. I work in my car before I go to the Auto shop and I’m not a car mechanic I’m trying to save money like you it happens what‘s done is done. Who knows you just may not have had the time to wait for the plumber. The more you tell the truth about the problem the faster the plumber can fix it. Ask your question before the plumber starts not after the job is done.

7.Know were your water or gas cut off is. Yes the Plumber can find it but if you want to get the plumber in and out fast and cut down on you hourly rate know as much about your plumbing has possible. Time is enemy don’t let it get away.

8. Tell them PlumberX sents Ya🙂

Thank you all very Much PlumberX

Hello this is PlumberX. People always ask me what gave you the idea and what made you create these how to plumbing videos? Coming up with the idea was easy. After many years as a plumber and servicing customers at there home I’ve seen a lot of people in tuff situations, people that could not afford a plumber, people that didn’t have time to wait for a plumber to come to there home and make repairs, hearing horror stories of Plumbers that have rip off costumers and gave bad service, to me this was a loud cry for help. One story come to mind; A friend of mine calls me and ask, Claude could you do me a favor and help this older lady that I know, and go by and look at her Plumbing, she needs plumbing work really bad but she’s to scared to call a plumber because of the cost, and she know that if I send you over there to check out the plumbing she can trust me as a friend recommending you, sure I said I could do that. The next day came and I went to the older lady’s home she came to the door with a pleasant smile very humble. I could see it in her eye’s she didn’t have to say a word ( What is this going to cost ) she was very polite and courteous. Sir would you like some thing to drink and I do appreciate you coming to check out my plumbing on such short notice. No problem mam, lets see what’s going on here with your plumbing. This way Sir in the kitchen. As I walk through the home I saw in the corner of my eye’s younger children around 3, 5 and 6 years of age running around the house Im sure they were her Grandkids; right away I knew they also stayed there and grandmother seem to have her hands full. I would say it’s safe to say that grandmother was helping raise them or she was doing it all alone. Yea I’m a softy, seeing all this going on before I even seen the plumbing problem just made me thankful of my situation and hoping that I could help her out, and maybe just for that day I could give her a chance to catch her breath and take away some of the worries she had going on. I finely made it to the kitchen sink. Here you go Sir I’ll leave you alone and let you work again thank you so much in a humble voice she says. I look under the kitchen sink. WOW! That’s it I said to my self. It was a chrome P-Trap that had just corroded from the bottom leaking into a large cooking pot, five minute job to replace it. I was curious. Mam How long has this been like this. Two years Sir. I ask really? Yes. Mam were have you been washing your dishes I ask. In the tube. OH! I said. Can you fix it Sir? She ask. Yes mam not a problem. For a minute I saw a little sigh of relief on her face, but she caught her self. Sir do you have any idea what this is going to cost? Yes Mam, in a low voice I said nothing mam. I didn’t have to say it to loud because I didn’t want it to seem as if I was doing her a big favor because I was feeling just as humble as she was; the smile and the relief on her face was more than enough for me she was really doing me a big favor, I was enjoying the idea that I was helping someone God had sent me to. Yes I know this is a small job but there are many people out there that don’t realizes this and they are really scared to call a plumber.
There are no plumbing videos out there like these. It took me years to develop these videos. We know there is a need out there for these plumbing repair videos. After years of plumbing service, we have come across many people who really could not afford a plumber and went years without plumbing services, even to the point that they would have to move from their home or pay thousands of dollars for plumbing repairs. If only these people had this knowledge, they could and would have saved their home and their money.We know you are out there. We have come to save the day. Everyone does not have $90 to $200 to have a plumber come out just to tell them what the problem is and what it will cost to fix. We are not trying to put plumbers out of work. We are just trying to keep you out of the red. There will still be times when you may need a plumber, but wouldn’t you feel good understanding what the plumber is doing and what you are getting for your money. You know that you are not going to be cheated because you have a better understanding of the problem and how it can be fixed.
