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.
