Wednesday morning this week, I was expecting a plumber to come work on my JayBee. He had stopped by the week before, discussed and surveyed the project with me, and said he would come work on the house with me on Wednesday. First thing Wednesday morning, I took the time to outline with tape the major areas to be plumbed.
At 10:00, when there was still no plumber here, I called and left a message asking when he planned to get here so I could plan my construction for the day. The plumber later left me a message saying he didn't think he'd be able to work on my project after all because since he'd agreed to do it he'd heard from two people who wanted new, large houses plumbed out. In other words, he stood me up and would not have even explained his change of heart and plans had I not called and asked. :-(
