Let's put this to rest already! Joe made a poor choice of words. He
apologized, let's all be the professionals that we are and move on.

Kristen, Joe is making a general popular culture statement that is mixed
with a bit of humor.  Believe me, people are so easily offended on this
list that the last thing we need is people to be getting offended on
behalf of others as well.

Political Correctness is the enemy of us all.  When I see a word like
dumbass on a post, quite honestly, it is a breath of fresh air.  

Everyone needs to thicken up their skins a bit before the rest of the
world finds out just how WEAK we have all become.

I'll forward that to my very hardworking, intelligent, and diligent
boyfriend who is a "Union Man". Perhaps dumbass is a better description
a single person who is not a good worker than to generalize that an
group of people are incompetent.

    Okay, as I said in my apology posting, I used "dumb ass" to describe

the plumber who did not want to vent the flame cabinets. Please give me
alternative phrase for me to use because I don't understand the
    1. what do you call it when you put in a drench shower/eyewash
combo, but don't put in a drain?
    2. what do you call it when you leave a 2" pipe open  near the
of the shower/eyewash so that when you test the eyewash station, a rush
water soaks your shoes?
    3. what do you call it when you put in a deionized water station,
don't know what a conductivity light is? So when you ask the plumber
do you when to change the tank if there is no light", and the plumber
says "I don't know"?.
    4. what do you call it when you blow a test ball through the drain 
system to test the drain system, yet forget to take the test ball out of

the drain and water backs up into your new lab causing a huge flood in
lab? Then have to call in a competitor to help you fix it.
    5. what do you call it when you try to light a gas water heater  for

30 minutes, just to be told by some one else that there is no gas meter 
hooked up because you forgot to get the meter from the city?
    6. what do you call it when you are soldering a pipe and activate
fire alarm system?

I fell like Jeff Foxworthy "You might be a redneck if".

Can some one please come up with an alternative phrase other than "dumb 
ass"? These events really happened this weekend in my new $1.5 million 
lab. I know, it sounds like fiction, but trust me, it's the real thing.
you see my dilemma. And for that one person who I offended in the past,
may be unprofessional in my language and conduct, but I do know MY job. 

Thanks for listening. In advance, I am sorry for the harsh language once

again, but I can't come up with the words to accurately describe this 
"professional" plumber.

Let the flaming begin (I'll just have to get another plumber to help put

out the flames)
