Monday Morning

Monday mornings are sometimes the most dull and stressful for some people.

But not for me.... heck I love my weekdays... I love the work I do and I love the people I work with so I actually look forward to weekdays. This Monday however I started off on a slightly different foot.

See, Sunday night I realized that there was a small leak underneath the sink of one of my apartment's toilets. I didn't think much of it... I thought "Ok.. call the plumber tomorrow".

Monday morning I woke up and you know what I saw.... that leak had turned into a bloody MONSOON!!!

Water was POURING out from the bottom of the sink and flooding the toilet so fast it had begun to leak into the bedroom and before I knew it... I woke up and the room was A SWAMP!!!

Has any of you ever heard of the term... "SPEED MOPPING"?

Well... allow me to introduce to you that new term.

Speed Mopping is when you grab a mop... and MOP THE HELL AWAY FOR FEAR THAT THE WATER WILL SPOIL YOUR WOODEN FLOOR!!!

While in the chaos I managed to grab my cordless phone and called the plumber.

The conversation basically went like this
"HEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!"

Then after a while of SPEED MOPPING... I realized that it hadn't helped much and I had one of those light bulb moments where a light bulb lights up in my head.
Why don't I just turn off the water mains where the water meter is. I jumped out of my apartment and straight to the water meter and I couldn't remember which was my apartment and which was my neighbour's water supply but I didn't give a flying f*ck at the point in time.... I turned BOTH OFF!!!

I had a small image in my head of my neighbour in the shower covered in soap and suddenly had the water turned off before he could wash the soap off but I thought about it for a while and then just decided
"NAH!!!... What are the odds?"

After that I ran back to speed mopping with a bit more success this time and in a few hours time, the plumber arrived!

All he did was to replace a small little pipe underneath my sink and it cost me RM150.
I wanted to haggle with him... but I was too tired from all the speed mopping I gave him the money and laid down on my bed for a while before I headed to the office.

So there you have it everyone.. my unconventional Monday morning!!!

Don't you just wish your life had so much drama!
