Hooray! Leaky Pipe not a Catastrophe! Not a Money Pit!
First of all–I have two of the nicest neighbors in the whole world. They came over tonight and tackled the ever growing puddle by my front door. The puddle that made me think, “Why did I buy this f-ing place? Look at the type of place I could be renting with this money!”
In the end it was not a disaster, not a catastrophe, it was an overtightened plastic washer/nut/bolt hose problem. One that my neighbors fixed for me.
Hooray for good people!
