What a way to start the weekend…
I was innocently doing some rub-a-dub-brushing-and-cleaning the bathroom this morning before I took a shower.
Just rub-a-dub-scrubbing-and-brushing while my fave mp3s played in the background.
Then suddenly, the pipe under the bathroom sink broke.
I must’ve knocked it with the broom while I was brushing the walls…
Neways, the water was freakin strong! When I tried to cover the broken pipe, water gushed through the cracks between my fingers – and hit me in the face!
I was drenched and couldn’t think straight…I covered the broken pipe with a rag. It didn’t stop the water but at least it was flowing more gently now instead of “exploding” like before.
I just knew I needed to turn off the main water pipe – and fast! After calling (quite frantically) my brother (since everyone had gone out and I was home alone) to ask where the main pipe was, I went to shut it down.
Didn’t work! The water was still running!
I ran back out to the front gate drenched, just wrapped in a towel with my face dripping with water. I must’ve looked like a cat caught in a sudden downpour! A freakin heavy one!
Fortunately, none of the neighbours saw me…Hehe.
I actually turned the tap the wrong way the 1st time. Only noticed that when the water meter kept running…it was ticking away like a digital clock with the digits changing faster than the change of one second on the clock!
I swore I could hear the syillings going down the drain…$$$…
Fortunately, the water’s stopped…
And I still haven’t taken that shower.
