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.
