4 trips

I didn’t think small projects would lead to multiple trips to the hardware store until tonight. To set the stage, I had a leaky bathroom faucet that I ignored for most of the 3 months and finally made it through. Remove the handle, remove the gasket ??? And I break it, damn it. Well … Trip 1: I went to Home Depot looking for a replacement, talk to the plumbing guy and they don’t have it, he suggests going to the plumbing store, but looking at the prices for new faucets not much more Trip 2: Since I’ve known myself, I’ve decided that my girlfriend needed to come over and help pick out a replacement faucet, so go home, pick it up, and go out. I found a new one and headed home. Trip 3: read instructions the next day read I need silicone and plumbing tape, neither of which I have to go to the store to get. Trip 4 – Start pulling out the old one, and I don’t have a wrench that will fit in the water line, head to the store, pick up a set of them, and while I’m there, a bigger set of pliers to remove the ring from plastic that keeps the old faucet open. I got everything hooked up, but there is a half inch between the drain spout and the sewer pipe, wtf, call dad who saves me on trip 5 telling me to lift the plastic pipe, I should have more, what do you know? Dad knows more than I do. My girlfriend slept through the adventures, and my dog ​​is not impressed, and I felt the need to share it with someone. Lesson learned, always plan for more trips … On mobile, excuse the format Edit: My girlfriend woke up and read my story, she says I’m lying and has been dripping for 3 years, which may be the truth
