I HAVE TO VENT TODAY
... and I've earned the right...
so if you don't want to hear it... put your ear plugs in !!!
You see.. it's this way...
two weeks ago , I kept hearing something in the bathroom
that sounded like water running..
checked all the faucets, nothing !!
Maybe it's the ice maker filling up that I'm hearing...
no it's not filling...
Ok maybe it's my imagination... you know I have one...
soooo forget it !!
well, a few days later a man comes just insisting on either getting in
or talking to me..
at that time, I was really sick and couldn't get to the door in time.
so he got in his little truck and left..
Next morning a phone call from my brother wakes me.
Here's the message I recieved !
Maurine, I just got a call from the office saying you have a bad water leak somewhere in your lines and your water meter is just " spinning".
OH, DEAR LORD ~~~
what to do... he says I told them we would find someone to fix it..
Ok, we'll adjust the bill when you get it fixed...
Now, mind you, this was last Friday...
so we call the plumber my brother uses and he can't get here until Monday afternoon
well, hey !! ya gotta have water... sooooo
leave it run....
Well Monday rolls around, the plumber comes, puts a clamp ( whatever that is ) on the leak and says that'll be $125.00 Mrs. Huffines
So I bite the bullet and write him a check....
Well I'm happy and I did laundry, took showers, loaded dishwasher and just sang as I heard the water running....
OH YEAH, I WAS HAPPY WITH MY LEAK FIXED....
COME SUNDAY AFTERNOON~~~
I'm sitting in the living room and all of a sudden I think... no, it's my imaginations again !!
went into the bathroom and what do I hear but WATER RUNNING..
FAUCETS ALL OFF
Went out where the leak had been fixed and there's a swimming pool in the back yard !!!!
OOOOOOOOHHHHH NNOOOOOOOO !!!!!
Bright and early Monday morning... I call the plumber..
ok, I'll be down this afternoon....
DOESN'T THE MAN WORK MORNINGS !!!
To make a long story shorter, he comes out, digs,
" hmmmm hmmmm., I think it's under your house
and after a few more "hmmm s "
he tells me he's gonna recommend a
SKINNY LITTLE 125 POUND LISCENED PLUMBER WHO CAN GET UNDER YOUR HOUSE
Am I fuming?? You bet !!
Well I call the "skinny little 125 pounder and....
he'll come out tomorrow... well about 4:00 he showed up
and after a few 'hmmm s ' from him, he says
it's getting too late to start a job today
I'll be back tomorrow
THIS IS TOMORROW.... NO SKINNY PLUMBER
NO PHONE CALLS
I CALL HIM
"ARE YOU COMING TODAY?"
YES MAAM BE THE SHORTLY
THIS IS " SHORTLY"
NO SKINNY PLUMBER IN SIGHT..
