LESSON LEARNED THE SLIMY WAY
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.
