So the other day I plugged my toaster oven in, and my whole fuckin house went dark. Well, except for the momentary blue flash, and the little flame that followed. I chucked some water on it, so the fire didn't spread, at least.
Anyway, I called one of those unsavoury electrician types, and the asshole came to my home, looked at my wiring, and then had the NERVE to tell me I needed thousands of dollars in wiring!!!! The nerve of that guy!!!! I refused his rip off service, and grabbed my screwdriver. Pulled the electrical socket cover thingy, and checked it out myself. There was some char on 4 wires, but only 2 of the wires were really bad. So, off to the tool kit, for some tape. Wiped that shit down with a tooth brush, twisted em back together, and taped it all up. Total cost? Less than $1 worth of tape. And for $1, I can toast my bagels once again. Yipppeeee!
Imagine that asshole coming to my home after I called him out, just to try and rip me off for thousands. Pfffffff, electricians are all THIEVES! ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!
