This is why you love me, isn't it?

We've had a leak in our basement, nothing major, but just annoying especially after we'd had the plumber out not even two months ago for a leak in roughly the same place.

So today the plumber came by, took a look at my bathtub and determined that the problem was that water was dripping behind the metal disc that's between the faucet and the wall.

I asked if it was something that my rather handy hubby could fix, and he said that R could probably fix it, but since he was here now (and I would have to pay him anyway), he'd see if he had the necessary materials in his truck, and if he did, he'd go ahead and take care of it. Fantastic.

So, about 10 minutes later, he came out of the bathroom and said it was all taken care of, but to wait a few hours before taking a shower. No problem.

And so, as I handed him a check for $55, I said -

Wow! Good thing you brought your caulk!

We had the plumber out a few weeks back - to the tune of $100.fr. I said I wanted to be a plumber when I grow up...

Yeah, it seems like plumbers make ridiculously good money, but remember that half their job is just dealing with shit. Literally.

But it would be cool to get lots of compliments on how I used my caulk.

I love it when a man shows up at my house with "caulk" in hand!
