I was working on a dishwasher when...
« on: July 28, 2013, 07:49:33 AM »

...I felt something dripping on my head. I turned and looked up and found a dripping wet little boy with his "junk" standing right over me. I don't know if the wetness was from the bath water dripping off of him or he was peeing on me. I hope it's the bath water. :please: The mother was busy chatting on the cell phone when I had to call her out to take her little boy back. A few minutes later, he comes back out in a Pampers diaper. I hurry and finish the job and head straight home to wash up. This is one of those calls you're going to remember for a long time.  Just thought I share a funny moment with all of you

Years back when I worked on ammonia refrigeration plants that used calcium brine solution to circulate in the pipes under the con create slab, we always had to find the leaks.  One day I seen some yellow solution coming from under a wall, so I leaned down and stuck my finger in it to test it for the brine taste,  it wasn't,   brine.   :P:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Can't be sure.  It was dripping on my hair.  I still have that feeling of yuckiness in my hair every time I scratch it.

Never had that happen,  thank God.   When working on Coin op washers,   I did encounter machines that were filled with water that were used as "toilets" by someone before I got there.    I used to carry these elbow length playtex gloves for such situations.      Not fun working in situations like that.     Pee on head......................... Lots of shampoo and a very long shower.      Personally,   I would just believe that it was the water from the kids bath water.   Don't even think the worst.........

Just a hypothetical question. Would it be different if you would have turned around and the mother was peeing on you? :D

I would've packed my stuff and left.  Go home, strip down in the garage and wash myself off with the garden hose.  Then I would've sterilized my tool bag and tools in it. 

The lady was not pretty!!!
