A minor repair

“More often than not people were out of their minds” – A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

A trip to Home Depot. Needed parts and supplies for an important household repair. The exact nature of that task is not important. Suffice to say I was in attack mode. Testosterone flowing. Man stuff.

I intended to fix something.

And that should have been the first clue that this was not going to end well.

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo…………………………..4 hours later.

My knuckles are skinned.

The bathroom is a mess with tools and parts distributed helter skelter.

Blood dripping down the sides of the sink.

My wife is cringing in fear in a corner.

God has forsaken me due to an explosion of profanity.

I have lost all faith in the rule of law.

Please God………………….save me from myself. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    So weird that you post something like this on the VERY day I had a similar tragicomic experience! Just trying to replace the springs and seats in my bathroom faucet and it turned into an hour-and-a-half ordeal. Some of us should never pick up tools! 🙂


  2. I am sending a psychologist and a podiatrist. This thing needs to be handled head to foot.
