In which the whine was gone

I’ve now wasted two hours this morning.  Hours that I could have been writing posts but instead I was in a sleepy haze and could barely remember my name. Now, however, I’ve had a bunch of coffee so let me recap my week.  (pre-written post…I do that ya know)


  1. Kevin made me call the plumber

  2. He made me call the plumber because there is a high pitched whine whenever we use our kitchen faucet

  3. We use our faucet A LOT

  4. Especially now that the dishwasher is broken

  5. Oh yeah, did I tell you the dishwasher is broken?

  6. Didn’t I write a post on that?

  7. NOTE TO SELF: check that out

  8. If I did write a post on that delete the previous three steps

  9. Or are they really steps?

  10. Or just numbers?

  11. At any rate, we have a whine

  12. So I called the plumber

  13. He came over

  14. One and a half hours late

  15. He turned on the faucet

  16.  No whine

  17. Seriously?

  18. No fucking whine

  19. He cleaned out the faucet and found junk

  20. He said, “Maybe this is the problem?”

  21. I said, “Are you kidding me? Why didn’t you say that on the phone?”

  22. He said “I didn’t talk to you on the phone”

  23. Which is true cuz the appointment scheduler did

  24. He left

  25. All was well

  26. Kevin came home

  27. Turned on the water

  28. WHINE!!!! Crazy high pitched whine

  29. “I thought this was fixed LYNN!”

  30. Seriously

  31. That’s what he said

  32. “It was fixed,” I said “ask Keely, she was here”

  33. Keely nodded.  She was here

  34. I can’t believe it

  35. That was 2 days ago

  36. Still whining

  37. This morning Kevin asked if I was planning on calling the plumber

  38. I hate Kevin

  39. I hate the plumber

  40. I also hate my broken dishwasher

  41. I sure do feel better now

  42. What a great cathartic blog post

  43. I love my life

  44. I’m going to work out now

  45. BYE

    So the truth comes out. You’re a whiner causer. Now I know where that toilet whine came from!

    UGH. I know exactly that whine. My granparents’ faucet did it whenever they had air in the line. But they had this little valve on the side of the house where they could actually bleed out the air from the water pipes. Their pipes were very old. I suspect the cause is something else entirely these days. PAIN IN THE ASS.

    Make sure that the shut off valves under the sink are turned all the way on. Sometimes when they get shut a little bit it will cause that whine due to the restriction. If that doesn’t solve it, could be a pressure vacuum breaker either on the front of the house of on a hose bib. Hope this helps!

      ***it’s supposed to say – or a vacuum break on a hose bib.

    Murphy’s Law, it’s always the way. I am glad you went to work out. This is when I might have opened a bottle of wine to help me deal with the whine.
