My husband is not a plumber

I was downstairs in the laundry room last week, when I felt a drip hit my neck.

I looked up, only to realize that there was a huge spot above me.

I could only pray that the pipe that was leaking was frigid water, and not a hot water pipe! My partner is not a plumber, but he tries. There aren’t enough curse words in the English language for my partner to make repairs to plumbing! First off, he does not know what he is doing, and second off, he does not enjoy plumbing. To wait until he got home would mean I would have to call a plumber who did an emergency job and spend a lot of extra money, however I did not even know if there was such a thing as an emergency plumber. I went online to look for plumbers in our area, and to see if any did emergency work, then one guy told me to shut the water off and he would be there first thing in the day. I have two boys, and I cannot shut our water off. The next plumbing supplier I called told me they did emergency plumbing work, but it was going to cost me. I knew our child worked for a supplier that did plumbing, so I called him. I told him about the leak and asked if he thought he could help his father maintain the leak. It wasn’t half an hour later when our child was at the house, but he told me he wouldn’t charge me emergency plumber prices, although he was expecting a steak supper the next time he came over.Dripping from the ceiling
