Apparently, Murphy's Law also applies to the powder room.
I'm in there trying to "take care of business" earlier tonight and lo and behold, the freaking toilet won't flush. I remove the tank lid and discover that the plastic arm that pulls the chain that lifts the stopper has snapped in two.
Why do I mention this? Because this is the second time the same exact thing has happened here at Casa del Sayek since we moved in. BOTH times it happened after 8PM on a Sunday night - when either everything is closed or you have NO desire to hit the Home Depot (especially since it's snowing outside). Plastic breaks...metal rusts. You can't win.
I guess until tomorrow I'm on manual flushing duty. No pun intended.
There IS good news - the condo folks finally decided to give us a new roof, so we shouldn't have any more 'waterfall on Thanksgiving' incidents. We hope.
The office let it slip that our roof is NOW 'up to code'. Which I guess means that BEFORE the leak, it wasn't.
Make of that what you will.
Some good advice from the legendary Ray Stevens.
