Why they want to doom African-Americans and Hispanic to clogged drains is beyond me but that’s what they are doing. It is so unfair.

Chemical drain cleaners aren’t what plumbers do.

I think that depends on your definition of “plumber”. I live in a small town.

The same way here in the South. I have to show ID every time I get a can of lye just to make my own soap.

And my soap is better than any store bought soap!

If you call a plumber and his expertise that he delivers for his fee is to pour some drano into the sink, then you need a new plumber.

I have an ID, a house, a car and a job too. I'm black not "African-American", but I guess that makes all the difference.

Is it okay to save the hassle, cut to the chase, and take a dump on the curb when necessary for the sake of the children and the environment?

Drinking Drano might sound like a good idea at the time, but it will just leave you hollow inside.

Here in Washington state I was recently asked for my ID to buy drano at an Ace Hardware store - they were going to photocopy it and start a file on me. I told them to keep it, went to Walmart and purchased same with no problems.
It is the law in Illinois, stemming from two women who were attacked with something similar in 2008 - one of these gals admitted to pouring it on herself, but the law was passed anyway. The inmates are not running the asylum anymore, they are subleasing it to destruction.

If there’s a police car next to the curb, then it’s a twofer!

I have been buying Robic everytime I go to Lowes for the last year or so. I see a day when buying lye will be harder then it already is. I have not purchased soap in years.

If they want to fry their brains and bring on an early death, then let them. If they can’t do it with drain cleaner, they’ll find something else. As with everything PC and Big Brotherish, why do the rest of us have to pay for the tiny minority?

But, not to vote, right? Illegals don’t need to show ID but regular citizens do.

25 years ago my employer had to post material safety data sheets for everything, including “iron castings”.

The problem is the lawyers.

Me too. However, maybe ansel12 is a plumber, and thus has no sense of humor.

I think the no sense of humor guy is the one that jumps up to launch into a personal attack against someone who made a perfectly reasonable post which wasn’t even to him.

Chemical drain cleaners aren’t what plumbers do.

The plumber I had out for a drain problem last year certainly used it. Maybe he was unusual.

If he was actually a plumber yes, a plumber should be doing an actual repair, or drain cleaning, not delivering drano from the store.

Racists. Asking for photo ID is always racist now according to the libtard vote fraudsters.

And the elderly.

Don't forget the elderly, as they became elderly by living 7 - 8 decades without any photo ID, drivers license, etc.

Yep.

Hate to tell you, but you didn't have a real plumber. An actual plumber phyically clears stoppages.

The libtards are the racist ones. They have such condescending view of black people that they think only black people will have problem getting a photo id

You see, you just can’t trust people these days. These people advertise they are plumbers, have plumber on their card, shirt and truck, and yet . . . Sad world these days.

Well something doesn’t add up, which plumbing company was it on the card, the shirt, the truck and in the advertisements?

It was a local one, but they definitely user the word “plumber” in their advertising, and the guy who runs it is listed as a “Master Plumber.” No doubt, however, that they are playing it fast and loose as most people do these days. It shouldn’t surprise me, but it still sometimes does.

I don’t make my own soap, but I do buy a can of lye occasionally for cleaning aluninum out of the teeth of files and rotary cutters.
