    Time to laugh at me..

    Ok my parents are off for the week on vacation (or on holiday as you British guys would say). Well I couldn't go because i have work and school. Sucks man.

    Well the other day i made myself some pasta.. Penne to be exact. Well i ate half of it and tossed the other half in the fridge and went to work. Well i get ready for work (I am basically a telemarketer offering a free estimate on fertilization and weed control) and am in my normal clothes. I heat up the pasta, but it is lousy. I toss it down the drain and turn on the garbage disposal. Well water starts backing up. Great i think to myself.

    So I open the doors to under the sink and TAP the garbage disposal with my toe. TAP. Well i guess a pipe wasn't on tight because water and ground up bits of pasta go EVERYWHERE!! Gah! Now i have about an hour before i have to be to work. I grab some paper towels and start cleaning up. Nasty. Well sink is still backed up.

    I end up becoming a near master plumber in the process of tonight. I grab a bucket and put it under the pipes i'm working on. Then i take the pipes apart with a wrench and use a big ass screwdriver to clean out the pipes. I end up calling in sick because of the plumbing problem.

    Well i get all but the U-bend. I think it is all good at this point. So i put it all back together and turn on the garbage disposal again. Now the sink backs up with all the pasta crap. Damnit!! :banghead: 

    Now i start to unhook the 3-way pipe that connects the sink side and the garbage disposal side to the drain pipe. I disconnect it at the U bend piece. Well water comes flowing out. If i lower it too much it sprays out like a fountain, not enough and nothing comes out. I keep doing this for about fifteen minutes or so before i get it drained. :mad 

    Well i try to get the u bend undone to work on it. Well the other joint is too damn tight to move, and it is in a god awful spot where i can't use the wrench. I finally manage to twist it so it is at a 90 degree angle and use the screw driver to get half the crap out of it. Then i take the bucket and dump it as it is full of water and crap. I can't do it any other time because the sides come up over the u bend. Well i finally get it all hooked up again and use a plunger to get the last bit of crap unclogged.

    Total time: About 2 damn hours!!! TWO DAMN HOURS!!! :cry 

    Now excuse me i gotta go take a shower.. I'm a dirty dirty boy..

    This thread brings to mind another Mitch Hedberg quote:

    "I went to the Home Depot, which was unnecessary. I need to go to the Apartment Depot, which is just a big warehouse with people standing around saying, 'Hey, we ain't gotta fix shit.'"

    I'd hate for one of the admins to do that. They'd probably ban everyone at the moment of climax, or something.

    Scary. Those backed up pipes...hmm...maybe that's the smell that 90% of the fans at the TF Con's have. They decide to shower after the Con is over.

    I knew someone on a MUSH years ago who was busy role-playing while having... relations with their girlfriend... until she got a bit exciteable and kicked his computer off the desk. He had to get a new computer.

    Nothing more recent, though.

    I have met rattrap007 on more than one occasion, and can testify that he does not smell like TF Con. :) 


    He's a hygenic guy. We should forgive him this one minor transgression since no one was home and it was only a few minutes.
