...plumbers make 60 bucks an hour. They deserve more... My mother came running out of the kitchen yelling "there's a flood under the sink!!" We went out to look and there certainly was a flow of water exiting its way out and across the floor. I emptied everything out of the cupboard and looked. The drain was leaking... Could be worse. I pictured the water pipe frozen and spraying everywhere. Well, that's no tough fix right? Ten minutes right? I broke the connection the rest of the way.... Now was the flood! A wave of stinky greenish black water washed over my hands and splashed into my mouth... Then a horrid stench of sewer gas rolled out of the pipe... We're off to the store to get a new end and some pipe dope. Plumbers, my hats off to you. And by god, you can have it!
