Dan the Man, Down With the Program

Dan the Man is our plumber. He's an awesome old man who likes to quote The A-team: I love it when a plan comes together. About two years ago, he and I replaced all of the water pipes in my house. He made me do as much as the work as I could to save money, like resetting the toilet and taking down all the old pipes with a sawzall. He even dropped off a jackhammer one night and told me to make a hole in the basement floor for a new floor drain.

We called him on Friday to fix the leaky faucet in our bathtub and he showed up at 8:30 Monday morning. He finished in 30 minutes. He laughs hard at all his own jokes and remembered after two years that I worked a computer job. He even had an extended conversation with our two year old about Dora the Explorer.

If you need a good plumber or a father figure here in the Salt Lake Valley, send me an email and I will hook you up.

I wish there were more people like this in the world...IT seems we live in such a serious and disconnected society. It is nice when someone actually takes time to treat another with human dignity and tries to make a connection...
