You’ve spent the day slaving away in the kitchen. The oven is full, your fridge is full, and every counter is groaning under the weight of all this food. Your apartment is spotless. The glassware shines, the table is laid, and you even have some flowers in a vase.
The guests are on the way
Your whole family is coming down for the holidays, including that aunt – the one which comes to find fault, eat your food and leave. You’re looking forward to meeting the rest of the family though, it’s been a while, and there’s a lot of catching up to do. You take one last look over, and everything seems to be fine. There’s nothing out of place, and the food looks good. You step into the bathroom to put in a fresh hand towel; and that’s when you realize that you have a problem – blocked drains. This was completely unforeseen and is now an unmitigated disaster!
Panic sets in
At this point, you just want to sit down and question why this had to happen. A month ago, you asked your landlady to take a look at the drains, as they seemed to be acting up. She very politely agreed to, and then proceeded to do nothing about it. Unfortunately, you were busy for a few weeks, and it slipped your mind too. There’s no point asking her to come and fix it, it’ll take another month! It’s starting to look like you should change plans and suggest that everyone goes out to dinner at a restaurant, instead of at home.
Do the logical thing
You decide to give it one last try yourself, then see if you can find an emergency plumber Ryde before you throw the towel in and change plans. Even though you see yourself as a kind of handyman, all six feet of you, and all those trips to the gym are not match for this drain. Defeated, you turn to the internet. As always, Google does not fail you. You skim through the list of companies and pick a few close to you. Feeling a little hopeful, you start calling. After a few false starts, and a company of two which said it’ll take half a day to send someone, as well as half your salary; you hit the jackpot! This company can send someone in half an hour. You’re so delighted, you have to stop yourself from proclaiming your undying love for this company!
All is sorted
In exactly half an hour your doorbell rings, and fifteen minutes later, this competent woman has cleared your drains, with no mess at all! Crisis averted, you can breathe easy.
