I overheard a conversation where a plumber was talking to a coworker. He was frustrated seeming and said something about being annoyed at the maintenance manager or property manager at the large 20 story apartment complex in downtown Los Angeles where I live.
The plumber said, "that place is a lake of fire."
I wasn't really able to stand around too long to listen to everything he said but that was the end of the sentence and he didn't explain what he meant by that before or after really. I think it was in reference to the property manager not wanting to do something that needed to be addressed.
Does anyone have any idea or guess why a plumber would call something a "lake of fire"? Is there anything to do with plumbing that would make this analogy make sense?
The obvious imagery of a lake on fire or and a plumber having anything to do with fire is somewhat bizarre. I'd appreciate any input even if it seems unlikely. Please consider the question as it relates to an apartment home improvement topic and the general home improvement topic of plumbing.
