In which a plumber stopped by

Yesterday Keely and I were driving to rehab.  Now Keely goes to rehab 3 times a week for an hour each time.  Occasionally I run errands because once all is said and done shes there for about 1 ½ hours.  Mostly though, I just bring something to read or my iPad and entertain myself.


Anyhow, we were driving to rehab yesterday when the phone rang and it was Daniel MacDonald calling to tell me that the plumbers were on the way. I had completely forgotten that I had called the plumbers the day before because my kitchen faucet is on the fritz and I can’t get any cold water.
They had mentioned coming over to fix it but thye never said when but simply said they would call.  I thought they’d call and set up an appointment but I guess they were just calling to say they were coming over.


I explained the “situation” to Daniel that it was the kitchen sink and that there was no cold water; only hot water and he could call if there was a problem.  End of story right? WRONG.


Keely:             so who was that?

Me:                  Daniel

Keely:             what did he want?

Me:                  the plumbers are dropping by

Keely:             randomly?


And here’s where it gets good because Keely always speaks before she thinks.


Me:                  yes Keely, randomly.  Business has been bad so they’re going door to door to see if people need a plumber

Keely:             really?

Me:                  NO! Not really.  I called them to come fix the sink

Keely:             oh!


Yeah oh.  I love that kid.  I was visualizing in my head when she said that a bunch of plumbers stopping by to see if the drain was clogged or anything.  What’s really interesting is that I’m so used to Keely asking idiotic questions that I no longer even pause and I just respond with some smart ass response.


And that, folks, is why I’ll NEVER run out of blog fodder.

    LOL. Plumbers knocking on doors, haha. Well, Keely’s cute like that.

    Want to trade places with me and spend time with my Dad? I swear, if I had a heart condition, he’d have killed me already. I’m at my wits end!

    Between PMS, hormonal imbalance, sleep deprivation AND dealing with a grumpy old fart who derives pleasure from aggravating me, I just don’t know how much more I can bloody take!

    If I ever start a blog and begin to quote my (almost) 20 year old daughter, people would think I was making it up.

    i just spent about five hours digging a trench and holes around my grandmothers garden for drainage. I threw the dirt back on the garden in an attempt to build it up a little higher. I dont know if it worked or not, the ground is frozen and covered with snow right now. I doubt you want to invest in a noisy pump and pipes, but it could be done that way of course.

    It is nice reading your post. It is important to seek help of a plumber when there is something wrong on your faucet or pipe leak. I also call a plumber if I have this sort of problem.

    It seems like your heart is in the right place, and you’ve worked hard at an honorable job. Now you have some hope of buying the other half of your two-man shop. Ownership and its rewards are a big part of your personal American Dream.

    Good for you.

    My first contractor flaked out and never gave me an estimate after I spent hours explaining to the plumber and electrician what I wanted done. Now I am trying to get the plumber and electrician’s estimates and have them lined up to work on a specific date.
