Handyman needed for benefits Message Board

    Okay I lied about the benefits, but if you are in here reading I have a plumbing issue. Seriously, not that kind of plumbing....my shower. I hired a plumber last time to fix it but with all these bright men on here I thought maybe one could help. Here is the problem: My shower is clogged up from hair..ewwww gross I know..there is that metal thing on the drain. I need to take it out so I can remove that gross stuff but I can't unscrew it or pop it out. There was a way the plumber got it out last time but I can't remember. Any ideas...and don't make fun of me.

    So at the softball tournament I went to watch Milwaukee play a game. I learned from the wives and other fans which guys were plumbers. After the game, I get into conversation with a couple of Milw. plumbers and I mention that I have a friend in their town who needs her drain cleaned. I told them her name was Angie and she was a grade school teacher and one guy interrupted and said "first grade?" and I said yea. The second guy looked at the first guy and they each had a big smile on their face. I just started laughing and said "what?" but they wouldn't answer. The first one said "we'll take care of it". That was it, they left. I left thinking what the heck was that???

    Oh Oh...I bet I know what that was about!! Cubsters..you and your imagination...not as innocent as you seem.

    Reminds me of the James Taylor song. I thought you had a great handyman that fixes your stuff sometimes?

    I need a handyman for a few things..not just for plumbing.

    I figuired since this is my last day of school and I am sitting with just a handful of students I would try and play the damsel in distress again...just for one more day. I have an idea...I have a question that will get a few guys talking. What is your favorite tool? What is it and what do you use it for? No, not that tool...a mechanical tool.


    Petite, I personally prefer my 155 piece socket set...I can never quite figure out how big the nut is so sometimes I try a little socket, sometimes a big one until I get a nice snug fit...Sometimes I even have to pull out the deep well sockets if there's a long stud on the end of the nut....And for you ladies across the Atlantic....I also have a full set of Metric tools...just perfect for wrenching on my British toys....and if there's rust on your engine, I'll just spray a little rust buster on it for lubrication and pull out my air powered impact hammer- 800 strokes per minute...pull the trigger and hang on tight!

    That is a VERY sexual description of a tool. I am ashamed of you.
