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