Plumber Vaucluse saves Afternoon Tea!
Beatrice was expecting her friends from the club around for afternoon tea when her son, a sales rep who stopped by occasionally, came out of the bathroom looking rather sheepish. The toilet had stopped flushing and he was looking for a bucket to flush down the contents.
Horrified, Beatrice pointed him in the right direction and began to panic. Her friends were due soon and she couldn’t have a toilet that didn’t flush! And the laundry toilet was in no condition for guests to use! Her son calmed her down and said he’d seen a Plumbers truck down the road. Once he’d made sure the contents had been flushed, he walked down to the house he’d seen the Plumber at. Fortunately the Plumber was standing by his truck, packing up. The Plumber listened to the problem and said he had time to come and have a look, so they moved his truck into Beatrice’s driveway. Before he entered the house, the Plumber made sure to put on a pair of protective booties over his work shoes so he wouldn’t dirty the tiles.
Beatrice watched the plumber like a hawk as he removed the cisterns lid and looked to see what the issue was. It turned out to be a faulty valve, a part he had on his truck. Wanting the job done and the Plumber gone before her friends arrived, Beatrice agreed. He was back from his truck within moments and set about repairing the broken toilet. Once done he flushed the toilet a couple of times to ensure that it was working. Beatrice tested it as well, just to make doubly sure. It flushed perfectly. She was surprised when he began packing up his tools, that he even rubbed off a couple of marks he’d left on the cistern, and mopped up some water he’d accidently splashed on the ground!
Before he left, Beatrice asked for his card, in case she needed a tap serviced in the future. The Plumber obliged happily and handed her a business card before he left.
