Sym Symba

I used to have a late 60's Honda 50s and always wanted a Honda Super Cub. Honda has sold 60 million, making it the best selling powered vehicle of all time. Honda hasn't sold them in the US since the 80's, but they are still sold all over the world. If you want one, you might try the Sym Symba, which has a 100cc engine, but is completely based on the Super Cub.

Zoom Plumbing Atlanta - Unprofessional

I had the afternoon off yesterday and today, and needed some plumbing done at the house. Yesterday afternoon, I called Zoom Plumbing in Atlanta (a friend recommended it) and talked to Tom (I assume Tom Connolly, who appears to be the owner) and scheduled an appointment today between 2-6pm. He asked if the address was in Little 5 Points and I said that it was 3-4 miles east of there.

Today, Tom called around 3:00 and asked if I still needed a plumber. I said that I did and he asked me if we lived 'near McLendon'. I said that I don't know where that is, but that our house is in the Oakhurst neighborhood in Decatur. He said that he was on his way.

At 5:30, he had still not arrived or called, so I called him and he said that he hadn't been able to find the house, that he had driven all over the place looking for it and it wasn't worth it. I asked why he didn't call to get directions or go to Google Maps, or use a GPS or at least call and say that he wasn't coming out. He said the he had a bad day and everything had gone wrong. I said "So you want to make sure that everyone else had a bad day"?

Please make sure not to call Zoom Plumbing Atlanta for anything. I didn't link to them from this blog, because I don't want to inadvertently send them any customers.
