Plumbing in Haiti - My Plumber did it HIS WAY...

TRUE STORY - I call up a plumber to do some work for me in Haiti... But before coming to Haiti, I called up a professional from outside the country who gave me a plan and a complete list of all the parts I will need. So I purchase the parts and brought them with me... That was the beginning of my nightmare...

Haiti - Plomberie

Long story short... When my plumber was done. ALL THE PARTS... OK... Most of them... were still on the floor...

"What do you mean you are done?" I asked him...

"Ohhh," he replies, "we don't use these part here, I don't know why your bought so many parts."

Have you ever had this problem in Haiti? You want to do some work in your house, you call a "Boss Mason" or some other "BOSS" and you ask him IF he can do it... You tell him EXACTLY how you want it done... Then he turns around and tells you HOW IT'S DONE IN HAITI...

What's your story?
