Should you dump your plumber?

I dumped my plumber after he made inappropriate comments of a sexual nature to my daughter. I then discovered from another plumber that he did an inappropriate repair on a tub that was leaking.

Obviously it was a no brainer to dump him.

Here are some other clues that problems may be ahead:

1) He shows up at 2:00 P.M. when the appointment was for 9:00 A.M.
2) He doesn't cover his shoes before entering your home.
3) His tools are as nasty as your old pipes.
4) He doesn't give you detailed answers to your questions.
5) He helps himself to food.
6) Your final bill doesn't even come close to the estimate.
7) He leaves a big mess when he leaves.
8) He gives you no guarantee or warranty on his work when he's done.
