So, my basement flooded. And it likely will flood again because I can't get the drain cover off, can't get a snake through, or anything else I tried. And I am NOT paying for a 10 PM visit from a plumber. I will call immediately in the AM though and see if I can get someone out here. To do what? I don't know.
I usually like the sound of the rain, but not tonight.
So, I sat here earlier this evening trying to get help from friends, and realized it may have been karma. I never called back the plumber/electrician guy to explain to him that I wasn't going to date. So, in an attempt to fix karma, and also because I've been thinking about it and wondering if I should still do it despite the fact that it's been two weeks since I talked to him, I called and left a message - kinda long and awkward, but hey, it was the truth.
Karma was not appeased. Oh well. I pay the price. But not the price of a night call from a plumber that might not be able to do anything. Sigh.
