Don't harp.

Neither shirk, nor be irked!

by Stuart Witt

This vessel is not for blood. This vessel is my toilet, you see. It was stuffed. I tried as hard as I could, but as hard as I tried, the plunger would not work. My skin is rubbed raw, on my left hand, not only once, but twice. That surprises me since my right side did most of the work.
I called for a plumber, but I received two.
They fixed the problem with their snake. They told me not to use too much paper, because the small exit hole in the toilet won't work. That should solve the problem, they said. But if the problem arises again, I would need a new toilet instead.
The two plumbers asked me if I could give them a good rating, which I think the two deserve. But neither their cell phone nor my computer would work. And for that matter, I could not find a decent tip, in cash, so I did not give them a tip at all. But at least the visit was most productive and it was filled with good will. Not only is the toilet fixed, at least for now, but I know where I stand or sit.
Oh yes, while I think about it, though my left hand is rubbed raw, twice, I do not need a blood transfusion. If my blood type ever is needed, my blood service has the details. As for blood vessels or vessels of any kind, professionalism and good will help.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
