We woke up to a bathtub full of sewage- an astonishing, breath-taking mess.
And since none of us (we have a guest staying at the house) has serious nunchuck skills or an extra-long plunger, the only solution was to call upon a higher power. Hopefully, the plumber will be here soon.
This was my morning, and sometimes, this is my life.
Occasionally, I’m given a heads-up on what is to come, like a distant sort of sound, a glug….glug……gurgle, to the tune of,
“Oh Danny-boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling…”
Which- y’know, would be the time to take action but instead, I hear it and think,
“Hm….that’s a curious sound…” and leave the room, closing the door behind me.
At other times, there is no warning whatsoever of the coming tsunami of tsewage.
Either way, it’s a stinkin’ reality of life. Stuff backs up, overflows and leaves us gasping for air. Thankfully, we do have a Higher Power to call upon. For all your maintenance and emergency needs, call God & Son Plumbing. I highly recommend the maintenance program available as it alleviates many of the crises calls.
But you’re not alone. This just in: Stuff happens to your neighbors, too. Like- oh, for instance, your tub of sewage floods his bathroom, hallway and kitchen, too. We prayed we’d get to know our neighbor better… and this was our opportunity. I met him at the door in my polka-dot rain boots, hot pads strapped to my knees, and over-sized purple gloves. He now has a cleaner-than-ever tub, bathroom, hallway and kitchen (he lives with four teenage boys, so…) I threw in a lunch, too. But first, I washed my hands really, really, well.
Here are the ads and reviews for God and Son Plumbing. And there’s no false advertising here:
