A few days ago I noticed that my bathroom sink stopper had broken free from the pin that held it to the thing that makes it go up and down. Naturally I called our building super.
Well, he called me at work to report that the whole pipe underneath the sink had rotted to an alarming degree. So what looked like a small problem would actually cost about $500.
This is my 12th year as a condo-owner, so I'm hardened to to home-repair prices, but I thought it was a great opportunity to use some of my clip art from the 1920s and 30s.
