If I am your plumber and you pay me money to fix your plumbing and I do a really shitty job at fixing it.. and you complain to me about it to me... does it comfort you when I tell you that whenever your neighbor washes his dishes that the basement floods? Does it make your plumbing better knowing that somebody else has it worse then you?
