Would it be bad form to ask him to snake my drain?

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 12:38:11

(Although ds has already shown him "daddy's tool box")

Bloody traitor. It's not even my ex's tool box. It's my bloody tool box.

Ask him if you can drain his snake.

Ask him to open a window;

You definitely need to offer him a nice cold drink to help him cool down.

Then tell him you need your Chimney swept and does he know anyone who's man enough able to do it...

Hot burglar alarm engineer here now. Can't think of any smutty double entendres though ..

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 12:54:02

grin Niles!

Drain his snake feels slightly too forward.

Do plumbers do chimneys? grin

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 12:54:51

I'm sure there's one in it nearlyfree.

yeuch. Imagine if it was a woman being leched at while she's doing her job.

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 13:00:32

He's not being "leched" at though is he? I've said something silly on MN from the safety of my living room where I can't blush at him in the kitchen. He's not being sexually harassed unlike many women actually do at work. They lose jobs and friends but yes go ahead and make ignorant comparisons.

Dandandandandandandan Thu 15-Jun-17 13:01:52

Christ, you really can't say anything around here without rustling someone's jimmies!

strawberrygate Thu 15-Jun-17 13:02:03

It is leching though. I wouldn't like to think that a bloke was making sexual comments about me online; would you?

strawberrygate Thu 15-Jun-17 13:06:46

So if the plumber is at the moment posting on facebook that he's with a customer and she seems to have a sticky flange fnarr fnarr; that would be fine?

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 13:06:53

I wouldn't need to think about it as I wouldn't know. hmm

AnniesTurn Thu 15-Jun-17 13:08:19

My ex is a very hot plumber

One women genuinely asked him to "check her pipes" wink wink grin

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 15-Jun-17 13:09:53

I had a fling with my plumber a many years ago, he was hot

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 13:10:03

Annie grin

strawberrygate Thu 15-Jun-17 13:10:09

Ah right. So it's OK to make sexual comments about people as long as they don't see them themselves. Weird as I thought the days of making such comments about people were kind of stuck in the 70@s. hey ho, must have been a revival

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 13:10:35

Did it start by asking him to snake your drain brillo?

UnGoogleable Thu 15-Jun-17 13:12:27

Tell him since your ex moved out, your pipes may have been neglected and could he perhaps give them a once over?

* re the 'letching' comment. Yes, I know, if men were saying it about a woman then yes it could be letchy. But it's online, anonymous, he literally will never know. Get over yeself!

MrTumblesbitch Thu 15-Jun-17 13:12:29

I want a hot plumber, I am very jealous!

Chapsview Thu 15-Jun-17 13:14:48

There must be a way you can get "ball-cock" into the conversation....

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 13:17:40

He's gone now and I didn't even think to say ball cock. blush I am useless

Dandandandandandandan Thu 15-Jun-17 13:19:05

There's quite a difference between leching over someone (making comments to them; staring; touching etc) and posting light hearted totally anonymous silly innuendoes about snakes and drains, strawberry. This is on the right side of that line.

ThanksMsMay Thu 15-Jun-17 13:19:05

Ungoogleable I couldnt tell the man that my pipes have basically now gone rusty and I've probably got bats living inside them!
