Remember how I went on vacation and came home to a big ol' mess left by the Frau and the plumber? Well, I went to Comic Con and returned to another mess left by the Frau and the plumber. Do you know what I love most? Getting home late at night from a vacation and scrubbing my bathroom.
At first I didn't see what they had done, but upon closer inspection, I noticed a new shower head and new knobs. The shower head still has the blue plastic coating to protect the chrome. It's a nice decorative feature so I'm leaving it. Here's the rub, as they say: The pipe that comes out of the wall is not secure, so when I tried to move the shower head the whole thing moved. Nice. There's more. The shower head piece itself is so tight that I had to grip the base firmly, then gently try to move the head to find the right position so I didn't get a full blast in the face. [wow, I just re-read that and realized how dirty it sounds...or maybe it's just me.] Oh, and the water came out is a dribble so I had to adjust that knob that is inside the head, which just makes it splash all over the place anyway. Not the pleasant shower I was anticipating. Nope, I pretty much cussed like a sailor the whole time.
