Why do you only need a plumber after 8 on Sunday night?

Yesterday, my main sewer drain had a bad day. It started with some laundry, then it had all the icky things from the fridge put down it, then the dishwasher… Not to mention all the flushing and hand wasing that went on.

Next thing I know, my mom is asking me for the plunger. I go to get it out of my bathroom, and guess what I’ve got?

3 inches of kitchen water and waste in my shower.

Let me tell you, it really was lovely. And totally disgusting.

After much deliberation, Mom and I decided not to have the plumber come out on a Sunday night so we could pay extra. We picked to have the plumber come today, so that things wouldn’t be so expensive.

It is now that I wonder why, oh why, do things always happen on Sunday night? Why couldn’t this have happened on Friday? It would have been a much better time for me.

Oh well. Good thing I belong to the gym. I took a shower here. God knows, there is no using the shower at home. I feel so bad for my mom. She has to wait around for the plumber, feeling like she needs a shower. Honstly, that shower is going to need a lot more than Scrubbing Bubbles and Tilex before I get in it again.

I know, I should have taken a picture. But, eww. I mean really. EWW.

I guess I’m lucky. Daisy hasn’t tried to drink it yet.

    Sorry about the shower.  Bleach… lots o’bleach.
