LES­SON LEARNED THE SLIMY WAY

The Family Handyman - - GREAT GOOFS - STEVE FEARS

The dou­ble sink in our kitchen was drain­ing slow, so I put my handy­man prow­ess to work. I planned to use the blow fea­ture on my shop vac­uum to push the clog through the drain line.

As I in­serted the hose into the drain, my wife asked, “Don’t you think we should cover the other drain?” But it was too late. I’d al­ready flipped on the vac­uum, caus­ing stinky, slimy wa­ter to shoot out of the other drain and drench us. Next time I’ll let her fin­ish talk­ing be­fore I start work­ing.
