Waiting For the Plumber (Or a Reasonable Facsimile)

The kitchen faucet has become problematic.  Just when things were going so well it is leaking, or more accurately, seeping around the faucet handle.

If it were up to me, I would only have, bare-bones, basic faucet fixtures in the house.  The reason being, I’m inept when it comes to plumbing repairs.

I once broke off a water pipe in the wall.  The worst part, I was trying to impress my new bride, in our “new” home, with my resourcefulness.  My father-in-law bailed me out of my predicament.

My wife and I learned a lesson from the experience.  Guidelines were established.  If plumbing work was needed, only professionals would be called.  If I insisted on doing the work myself, my wife would temporarily relocate to the next county, for the duration–at least until I called a real plumber to clean up the mess.
