I've got a plumber coming today to look at my sink.
What I'm hoping will happen: "Oh yes. I know what this is. Let me weild this gizmo here for ten minutes and your sink will be fixed."
What I'm expecting to happen: "Hmm. Before I can fix this, I need to take your kitchen apart, at which point I shall probably realise that I require some arcane tool which I do not have on me and, in fact, I will have to obtain from the one company in the world that makes it. Who are Bulgarian. Milk and two sugars please."

If it's any help to your mind, we had a plumber in last week, and it was very much a case of the first scenario, so don't worry about it too much!

Will you help me carry on,
And lead me through the sunrise?
Lead me through the sunrise..."

The kitchen sink pipe sometimes leaked so I played Mario and did a quick fix with a pair of tights, last time a plumber came round I went to check up on him and found him with a pair of my old skanky tights in hands looking disgusted. So remove yer tights before he comes ;)

Well, I have two chaps in high-vis jackets contemplating my drains and they're not sounding puzzled so I live in hope.

Although,as tends to happen with skilled personnel of any stripe, I'm pretty certain they now think I'm a muppet.

I always feel inadequate with workmen, especially builders. I can put shelves up but that's about it. Anything else is beyond me.

Two things:
Firstly, I'm half-expecting to get a letter on my doormat reading "You owe us a metric fuckton of money" or possibly " We'd rather you weren't our tenant any more."
Secondly...hands up anybody else who's had a bucket of concentrated Hydrochloric Acid abandoned in their kitchen.?
Anybody?
So the next question is, what in the name of Asmodeus, Lord High Goatsodomizer, do I do with it?

HCl's bit of a boring acid. Doesn't do much to anything except organic materials.

Get back to me when you have hydroflouric or nitric acid.

No acid, but I've got a couple of litres of Toluene in the garage....

Tomorrow night me and my housemate are being left to run the petrol station by ourselves. If there is a story on the news about an explosion or anything similar... that was us :lol:
