Know that bullshit saying that bad things happen in threes?
That should totally be the motto of my life. I swear. Holy hell.
Our bathtub (now, let me just say right here we have two bathtubs in the house; unfortunately, a few months after we moved into the house eight years ago, Aaron broke one and never got it fixed so we essentially have one bathtub in the house) has been draining slowly for about two months now and it's nearing the point of not draining at all.
I've been wanting to call a plumber, but Aaron has these grandiose ideas of fixing things himself, like that one time? Where he snaked our washer drain line? That's like a three foot straight shot to the main drain? And it took him over 12 hours to do it? And I have to stand by and pretend to be all supportive and impressed with his master manly super hero skills? Yeah.
So, I've been waiting on Aaron to snake this god damn drain for over six weeks ("I can totally do that myself!") and this weekend I was all "Dude, I'm callin' a plumber" and he was all "No, you're not" and then he gave Darwin a bath and it stuff backed up into the tub and Darwin completely lost his shit and then Aaron was all "Okay, you can call a plumber now" on Monday night.
So yesterday I called around and found someone who could come out that afternoon and it was gonna cost less than a hundred bucks and I was all "woo hoo! I' can take baths again!"
So then the dude comes out and snakes and snakes and GUESS WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.
He decides to take some pipes apart to see what's happening because the tub still isn't draining and he finds...
[I really hope you aren't eating anything.]
[Because this is really gross.]
[And by "gross" I mean really fucking nasty.]
Dude. The pipe is full. The left side (full side) is original to the house, cast iron which is rusting and essentially clogging itself.
So now the plumber is here to rip out a shitload of pipes and our mainstack and replace it all.
And I'm looking for one-way tickets to get the hell out of here. Someplace with alcohol and running water without drainage issues.
