When it Rains, You Get Wet

You know the old saying, “When it rains, it pours”? Here at Doright Manor it might not be pouring, but it’s certainly dribbling at a pretty good clip.

A week or so ago I noticed that the water for my morning shower was getting hot more quickly and staying hot much longer than normal. I like my showers hot, but not near boiling. Then today, there was zero hot water. Hmmm.

Also today, we noticed the carpet in Studly Doright’s home office was wet. Now that his company has called employees back to work at their regular office we are seldom in that room. Had I not been sorting through some craft materials, I might not have noticed the dampness until it began to smell like mildew.

Studly’s pretty certain the two events are connected and that the job calls for more plumbing expertise than he has. He’s called plumber after plumber, but no one he’s talked to will come into homes right now thanks to the Coronavirus.

Current status: No hot water, so no shower, no washing machine, no dishwasher. We’re going to start stinking before long.

Peace, people.

  1. And I thought my day sucked when I had to leave my car for service until next week and get to use my entire stimulus check to pay for it.
    No hot water would be a much bigger issue.

    1. Oh man! That sucks. Our biggest fear with the water leak is we might have to replace the bathroom counters. And we didn’t qualify for a stimulus check. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  2. How is that not considered an emergency? I’m all for being safe and distancing, but this is one of those jobs that can be done and still maintain that. Of all the professions to not be working, I find it really odd that plumbers aren’t willing to come out.

    1. We thought it was odd, too. Studly finally found a guy who came over yesterday evening. He took a look and found the leak, but he said it might be too big for his company to handle. 😳 Said he’d have his boss call us, but we haven’t heard anything yet. $$$$$

      1. Wow! I really don’t get it. Our HVAC company came out to do our routine maintenance the other day. The guy wore a mask the whole time and was never close at all. I guess if you are in an area that has been harder hit than ours, you have fewer people willing to take that risk, but I would still think that plumbing would be one of those top priority kinds of services.

  3. I don’t understand! My daughter’s boyfriend installs appliances. Owns his own business and hasn’t stopped. He wears a mask on all installs and buys hand sanitizer by the gallon. Plumbers should be essential! Period!
