Dear V:

I can SO relate to your anger. We have a tree root problem where the roots get into our sewer line. The plumbers in our area that we have hired have been less than reliable to clean out our system.
One day I noticed this advertisement in the newspaper for this particular service. I hired this plumber who I believed to be reliable and had a good sense of business ethics. I even contracted him to install a new clean out in our yard to where he brought in a back hoe to do the work.
Just last weekend I'm cruising the national sex offender registry for our area and I see this familiar face. AT first I couldn't figure out who this man was...I could even hear his gravely voice...when I saw his name, I realized this was our plumber. Apparently he did prison time for child molestation.

What freaks me out is that HE was in our house, had even let my seven year old son sit on the seat of his back hoe equipment for a photograph. This was a lesson well learned...this reality is everywhere and we all need to be very careful with our precious children.
The way I see it though, the plumber is on the list...it is those that are family members, scout leaders, religious people who are chamelions in our society that we have to be very cautious of. Basically it amounts to "trust no one" and always keep the channels of communication open with our kids.
V, as you can see, I understand your post on the level of it hitting very close to home here.
S-n-S
