Tips when Booking a Plumber!!!!

I have found that if you book a plumber for a set time on a set day, don't also forget to book a weeks holiday from work. Never mind that he says 11 o'clock on a Wednesday morning, and by 1 o'clock lunchtime there is no sign. Just cancel that appointment and make it for 09:00 the next morning. When he still doesn't turn up don't've got the rest of the day haven't you?????? Surely you have nothing better to do than wait in for him???? Anyone know of a good plumber?
