I went into the bathroom yesterday; and turned the shower on. Water flew everywhere - to the ceiling and the walls and the glass doors. I turned it off as quickly as possible, but not before inundating my robe and hair.
I looked up at the big shower head and it was hanging by a "thread" from the pipe. Apparently, the cleaning woman who was here on Friday (her first time) messed it up and failed to tell me it might be a problem. If she spoke English, I would call her and complain.
So I went into another bathroom to get my shower. I called my daughter, who is my landlady, and asked if my son-in-law could take a look at it. Either that or I would call a plumber and also have him install the new kitchen faucet, which I have had for months.
They came over this morning and he fixed the shower head; putting new tape on the joint, so it should be fine for a good while. Isn't it nice to have a relative who can do things for you? I am really grateful to Ed for the help! But the faucet remains.....and I am getting anxious for the new one, which is much easier to work than the old one. I guess I'll have to call a plumber after all.
