World’s Most Dedicated Plumber Is Photographed Getting The Job Done
“Dealing with plumbing issues isn’t exactly the most exhilarating part of anyone’s day. That’s why, when a Texas woman called a plumber to fix a pipe leaking on her property, she wasn’t expecting anything crazy to happen.
However, that was before she walked outside and saw something that made her do a double take. The plumber had arrived…or at least half of him, anyway!
