Plumbers find gold brick while renovating bathroom

For once, goldbricking on the job was actually a good thing.


#3

Obligatory addition to every plumber’s manual from now on:

If you find a gold brick in the rubble put it in your tool belt. Don’t mention it to the homeowner. Gold bricks are a job perk.


#4

So that’s where I left it!


#5

Owner had no idea the brick was there. Probably the guy who lived there previously & passed away.


#6

Is this what they mean by first world problems? :wink:


#7

More bathroom bricks soon to be found when plumber informs his boss and/or wife.


#8

So, does this make the plumbers aurors?


#9

"The homeowners had previously searched their bathroom for the lost treasure and said they were thrilled to be reunited with the missing chunk of change. "

…and promptly threw it onto their pile of gold bars accumulating in the corner of their living room.

More like 1% of the first world problems.


#11

damn, I forgot to move that to the hidden safe at the other house.


#12

I’m sure he did. That’s what I’d do.


#13

Damn, those are some honest plumbers.


#14

Yea that’s it! I lost that gold brick, it was mine, I swear. In… the… bathroom. Wh-why was it there? Not telling!


#15

“…showed the brick to the homeowner”?


#16

I think these days they’re mostly cupers, farriers, and polyers. I do reckon there’s a bunch south of the equator that are Argentinians.


#17

eh, it was probably mostly tungsten, anyhow

This throws a kink in the home owner’s insurance fraud stolen gold brick claim…they would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling plumbers!


#19

I’d love to find a gold brick amongst the rubble of my belongings. But that’s a pipe dream.

Plumber… finds gold… amidst rubble… was his name Mario?
