Being deprived of the basic necessities is just wrong. I don't know how many of you read my blog, but for whoever does, I just hope none of you have to go through what we've been through the last couple of days.
A few days back, my mom noticed a stupid leak in a pipe in one of the bathrooms in our house. Now, what looked like a small problem just ended up being fucked up even more thanks to a lazy ass plumber who didn't know his job as well as he should have known it. He comes over to our house and manages to screw up more than 8 different pipe lines just to fix that one leak. Now I am not rocket scientist, neither am I a plumber, but I can confidently say that the leak wasn't so bad that 8 other taps and lines needed to be screwed for that. Having done what he did, he just took off and said that he would come back in a day's time to fix the problems that he had caused and also to fix the initial problem he was called home for.
He did not fucking show up..
So, there we were. Left without water from our overhead tank for 2 whole days. We had to ferry water from our neighbors house just to drink water and stuff. It was so fucking odd. Moreover, we don't have very friendly neighbors, so it was that much more difficult. Anyways, we had to look for another plumber and he's out buying spares right now. Its been 4 days now and we still haven't had our fucking plumbing problems fixed. I cant even begin to imagine what it would be like to be deprived of food and clothing next.
Damm, plumbing problems piss me off.
