His breadth of knowledge is fabulous and I cannot help reading his posts even when the subject being discussed is irrelevant to me. Surely I'm not the only Pigletjohn groupie!

Another here. I can see him under floorboards cleaning out airbricks.

MrsBennetsEldest Mon 28-Oct-13 20:11:40

I imagine whatever job he is doing, he's doing it extremely wellsmile

Caoilainn Mon 28-Oct-13 20:13:54

Me too! He has helped me out on my own threads, I read all the threads I see him on even though I'm usually baffled about the problem/response! [Blush]
Also love the 'help PigletJohn!' Threads grin

He could also be busy increasing the size of mains water pipes. Yy, it will be done properly.

He should really charge consultancy fees. He's a bloody marvel.

uncomfortablydumb Mon 28-Oct-13 20:16:04

He's helped me out at least a dozen times, directly & indirectly so big thanks for him, but I'll stick with my DH <soppy>

I love his posts too. So helpful and full of facts.

Clargo55 Mon 28-Oct-13 20:33:04

How does he know so much, tis amazing.


MrsBennetsEldest Mon 28-Oct-13 20:46:12

I really hope he reads these and realises how highly thought of he is. I've gathered DH's belongings together and I'm waiting for Piglet so I can get on with the exchange smile

PigletJohn would clearly be a dreadful husband - always on MN helping people with their boiler problems.

I've done this before but three cheers for Piglet John and as it's ages since I last did this (other name)but I'd like to add OYKKK (WWW) for talking us through this winter and the recent storm.

Is PigletJohn a man shock

MrsBennetsEldest Mon 28-Oct-13 20:56:35

I won't hear a word said against him Grendel smile
I believe he knows all about laundering white shirts so he will do for me!

GrendelsMum Mon 28-Oct-13 20:57:43

Or indeed, PigletJohn would be a dreadful wife if female.

MrsBennetsEldest Mon 28-Oct-13 20:58:10

I bloody hope so Hellon,

stubbornstains Mon 28-Oct-13 21:00:44

I did actually ask what he did for a living in an awe-inspired and grateful moment on another thread, and he claimed to lead a double life as an intimate masseur in Hull grin

MrsBennetsEldest Mon 28-Oct-13 21:05:58

Come on Piglet, this thread is just for you, give us a few words of wisdom.
Anyone have any questions they would like to put to Piglet?

Yes PigletJohn is a legend in his own time. I hope he sees this too.

CuttedUpPear Mon 28-Oct-13 21:21:09

I luff him too. I often think of starting threads in his name to get household advice then chicken out

SisterMonicaJoan Mon 28-Oct-13 21:33:17


Thanks to PigletJohn I sounded very clued up when I had a joiner round to discuss work and it turned out brilliantly due to a suggestion he made (the gates have survived St Jude!)

Is there an emoticon for a pint??

SomethingOnce Mon 28-Oct-13 21:37:40

Oh, PigletJohn, if you are in London, please visit and give my DP a kick up the arse - I'm living in a DIY SOS Property Fucking Nightmare!

SomethingOnce Mon 28-Oct-13 21:40:23

Yy, there is a cake smiley, we need a pint one! (Not sure if that's equal opps or gender stereotyping, probably the latter actually, but whatever...).

WildThongsHeartString Mon 28-Oct-13 21:43:34

Join the queue ladies, I'm having him first! thlgrin

DIddled Mon 28-Oct-13 21:45:07

I already told him I loved him!!! So helpful smile
