My plumber story
 
Hi all,

I am currently waiting for a plumber and though I would share the experience as and when it unfolds so anyone yet to experience a UAE tradesman can get an idea if the fiasco that is having your toilet fixed.

The story so far; I have a problem with my toilet, the stopcock seems to have stopped working so the water is overflowing continuously- its like Niagra falls in my bathroom. So I spoke to the security guy who told me to call the landlord, who responded quite quickly saying they would arrange someone to come out- so far so good. So I get home from work to find a note under my door saying that someone had come to fix it but noone answered-(possibly because I was at work and hadn't been informed that someone would be coming), So I called the chappie to arrange a time to which we have arranged this morning, at 930- 10 am, so after some scare mongering by friends on facebook telling me the horror of a day that will no doubt unfold I called the guy to check he is bringing his tools, ah yes madam I remember now- I will be with you in one hour- so already late. he hasn't confirmed he is bringing any equipment so god knows what he'll turn up with- possibly a chocolate teapot!

The sgaa continues...
