Dave, were you at my house for the past two weeks? Hubby decided to 'fix' two - two - two sinks at once. His reasoning? ONE TRIP TO THE HARDWARE STORE WILL TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING. HA, say I. HA HA HA.
We've now had no water (luckily, McDonald's is nearby and they have clean bathrooms WITH WATER), cold water only, no sinks for 24 hours, a sink taken out (before finding out whether a replacement was available - it wasn't) and put back in, many cuss words (a veritable blue cloud hangs over our house; six dogs hid in my office with me), various stenches from various GOOPS that were supposed to fix the problem(s) . . . well, you get the picture.
AND THIS COMIC PUTS IT ALL SUCCINCTLY . . . (altho *I* was the one who forgot her wallet at the garden store yesterday, so it's actually a twofer at our house).
(Did I mention that in the middle of all this, hubby had to leave town for several days?)
