Life in the Frakkin' Circus

Plumbing The Depths
     Aaaagh.
     What can I say?
     Again with the waste water backup.
     Plumbers are here tomorrow, at 7:30 a.m. and we have a check from the Association to pay them when they finish. Real plumbers, not the smiling ignoramuses who told us the job was done last time. (Bob remarked that we should have realized these guys were less than successful when we noticed one of them had few teeth in his head. A professional, successful, competent plumber would be making the kind of money that could pay for dentures, he opined. Yup. Didn't think of it back then.)
     Now all we need is someone to clean the carpet between the furnace and washer nooks.
     You know, the carpet that was the replacement for the carpet the previous backups ruined.
     Breathe, woman, breathe.
     Remember: it's not sewage, its just waste water.
     Yup, concentrating on being positive here. Really concentrating.
     Yup.
     Oh, wait - there is something good to report: the exhaust backup in the car, and the car's broken windshield washer fluid pump, have been fixed and replaced, and the old girl's running really well.
     Well. That feels better.
