My bathroom is a shit show. That is the best way to describe it.
I came home last night expecting to have a shower installed only to find one of the workers still in my bathroom with a a broken pipe. I shouldn't have been surprised because the pipes are so old they'd probably crack if you blew on them.
Of course when I get home I have to pee really bad. Guy tells me that he has to go to Home Depot because the fixtures he has aren't fitting the pipe. The water is shut off in the whole building and I have a full bladder. I decided the easiest thing to do would be to waddle over to Melissa's house and use her bathroom (thank you Melissa).
Back at the shit show bathroom - guy comes back with correct fixture but when he goes to turn the water back on in the basement another pipe breaks. Of course, I mean why not? At this point he calls an emergency plumber. Ok we're going to get this fixed right? Emergency plumber can't get here until 10 p.m. In the mean time my neighbors are knocking on my door asking what's going on with the water. Luckily handy man guy does the explaining.
I am so tired. I've been waking up early when the guys get here and I was dead at work and all I wanted was to go home and relax and get to bed early. Instead I have an emergency plumber in my bathroom at 11 o'clock at night.
Around 11:45 I was told that they would not be able to turn the water back on because whoever lives in Apt. 9 left a faucet on and if they turned the water on without this person being home and a faucet on, the place could flood. So this means the whole building would have no water for the night.
I'm sorry but I need a functioning toilet! So I texted Melissa to let her know I was crashing at her place, packed up a few things and slept there. I have no idea what everyone else in my building did and the water is still off.
Please can I get some sleep tonight and possibly a functioning bathroom? That would be fabulous, to live like a modern human again.
I should mention that I kind of feel bad for handy man guy. Working with such old plumbing has to be a nightmare and I'm sure he didn't want to be here so late just like I wanted to be able to pee freely.
Here's my bathroom. There's also a giant hole in the floor where you can see right into the basement.
