Plumber Self-Talk

Had a plumber in yesterday to replace a part of the main drain system. There was a lot of plumbing-related finagling, banging, and struggling going on. Working in my office down the hall from the bathroom, I would occasionally hear the plumber make a short comment to himself. Here is a complete transcript:

Oh boy.
Oh brother.
Boy, this is a mess.
This ain't good.
This guy sucks.
Not good.
Oh, that's different.
Oh hell.
Makin' progress.
Oh boy.
Oh geez.
What the-
Oh heck.
Well I'll be.
Oh well.

This is what happens when you don't call Mad Mike.

Actually, I can't even remember if they were actually plumbers, but I know they can definitely remove a 45-year old General Motors refrigerator.
