days like these  
How yesterday sucked: I plunged the slow-draining shower... which failed to fix it, but did cause the toilet to clog. Drano in the shower failed to fix either, so I ran out the snake. 25 feet failed to find the clog, so I pulled it back... somewhat coated with drano. Which splattered on my shirt and ruined it, and bleached streaks into my favorite shorts. When I pushed down the drain to fill the sink so that I could rinse off the snake, something broke and it got stuck down. So no shower, no sink and most especially NO TOILET today.

Fortunately, today has been much better in that I managed to pry the sink drain back open, and the landlord's desired plumber had a 4 o'clock opening, where he spent an hour and a half cleaning out the main drain -- turns out that the access cap oujtside had gotten broken, and gotten filled with stones and roots. Even better, the landlord came by to show the other apartment at 5, so he paid the plumber directly instead of me having to do so and be paid back later.

At least the shirt was one I didn't like much.

Oh, man, days like that it just feels like a curse has descended. *hugs* Thank goodness it got all fixed up later!

I think I'm most annoyed about the shorts, my other pairs are pretty beat up and I doubt I'm going to find much to replace them in stores at the end of the season. Grumph.

On the up side, it being the end of the season, anything you do find will probably be on sale. *searches for silver lining*
