    Default plumber

    He is the perfect sterotype. Overweight and has the requisite butt crack.

    We show up within 15 minutes of every appointment. If we can not make it or are delayed the office always calls and re-schedules.

    Default time

    The phone company and appliance repairs give you an eight hour window for when they will be there.

    Yeah, I got to agree with HJ. The phone company must not know how to use a phone, I think. Sears has stuck with the 8-hour window ever since I placed my first service call in 19-ought-64 or so. I don't know how they stay in business. Somebody who's good with image-editing software could probably change the cartoon to a more appropriate profession...

    Rarely do I have an electrican, plumber or any contractor arrive on time.

    UPS arrived early, but that was only once and before the time they had actually given me which could have caused problems anyway.

    But as kids we are taught not to have these expectations, so it should come as little surprise.

    I mean, when was the last time you heard of a superhero who was a plumber, electrician or builder? The answer is never, because they would always show up too late to save the day.

    Ian, where do you get those cartoons from?
    In google, I search "electrician"+gif

    or "plumber"+gif

    and then select the images tab at the top of the Google page.

    To move, they must be animated gifs hence the search for a gif.

    I'll run out of these little guys soon if I ain't careful.

    I am really sorry but I cannot resist:
