    OP here, sorry but my sarcasm may have led some to believe that the Craigslist ad was mine. It is not.
    This was an example of the crap that we bid against up here in Wisconsin. Just stuck me as worthy of the wall of shame.

    That's what I assumed, in upper Michigan we deal with the same crap, it's crazy what some company's charge to slam a gooman in.

    My father was a master plumber for over forty years and I never saw one like that. I think he only had Rigids.

    I have one that was handed down from my great grandfather framed in my office. It has a quote on it "One cannot put a price tag on the skill of a craftsman"

    I would have a website done. I think more and more people looking for this kind of service just naturally go online vs. Yellow Pages.

    If I ever suspect a job being done by someone like this, I will go out of my way to report it to local inspectors. People like this pi$$ me off to no end. It is my oath to create hell for these people and for the jerkys that higher them.

    I didn't bust my arss for years and spend thousands of dollars attending proper channels to have lowlifes like this undermine our profession.
