Ah, ok. So it might not be worth it to sue if all the pay goes to the lawyer... Although, I wish he could sue his boss for defamation because the lies from the boss are what caused him to not get Unemployment & it may affect future job prospects. Meanwhile, there was a power surge the other day and the wall outlet for the TV, modem, & router stopped working. Fortunately everything was through an APC unit so the aforementioned electronics are all still ok, but that outlet seems fried. My mother said she smelled fried electrical briefly. For now we have a long 12-gauge extension cord running from the opposite side of the room from one of the only 2 outlets that still work in the room (there were only 4 outlets but two of them are now fried). My friend said he will come over next week and take a look to see if replacing the outlets will help. I got 20amp outlets instead of 15 to see if that will help any. I'll need to get my flashlight to see if the breaker is 15 or 20 though. I think the previous outlets were only 15, but not sure on the breakers. Last night I visited my friend at work to hang out. He had a chatty customer her overheard him telling me the plumber his grandfather hired had put AAVs on the washing machine & kitchen sink instead of tying them in to the existing vents (which were right nearby). I mentioned that they weren't even supposed to be allowed here and that it's not a good idea to put one on a washing machine vent. The customer then started talking about how he used to be a contractor and mentioned some other guys he worked with in the area (who are now dead). He then tried to mansplain to me about plumbing and said that kitchen sinks can't have P-traps because they will get clogged. This led to a brief argument where I explained about P-traps being self-scouring & how slip-joint PVC is used under sinks so it can be taken apart and cleaned out if need be. He continued to insist I was wrong until I mentioned the change in plumbing code (from the LPC that was done away with in 2016 and reverted to IPC 2016). He finally conceded that I knew more about it than he did. LOL. He was a nice enough guy- stuck around and chatted about how he refurbishes guitars and has been making modifications to his motorcycle. Stayed until 9pm (which was closing time). Since the employees weren't allowed to tell him the store was closed, I let him know & said that the lights were going to go out automatically in a few minutes (they go out at 9:05pm) so the remaining customers in the store decided to stop chatting and buy their stuff.
