Stupid M Trick on Her Birthday No Less

I'm staying here until the coast is clear

Hi Pals,

Well M really did it last night - another stupid M trick.  Somewhere around 9:30 or so I told M I wanted a drink out of the bathroom sink.  She proceeded to pull the stopper, turned on the water, and left the room!   Yes pals, she left the room with the water running!    

The next thing she remembers is hearing D yell "Mary."    Water had flowed down from the sink, onto the carpeting.  When that became soaked, it seeped through the padding, thru the floor  boards and was collecting in the basement on the concrete!  YIKES.   What a mess.

The peeps called the company that was here to clean up when the sewer backed up a couple of years ago.    He came out, hauled in a bunch of noisy equipment, and left for the night.     

I guess things are drying out.  The worst part was that my litter box had to be moved to a new location because the floor was wet where it usually  sits.   Of all the nerve.  i don't like this much, but what can I do.  Guess I'll hide away in my hidey hole until things are back to normal.

M says this is the most expensive birthday she's ever had, and she's not enjoying it much either.


The one bright spot in her day was getting a phone call from a dear friend in London wishing her a Happy Birthday.   That made her day.

Until next time,

Mario

Oh No, Poor M. Sounds like something our Mom would do. I bet she feels terrible. Mario, maybe it would help if you drank water out of a bowl in the sink. Our Mom makes us do that. You all have a better day.

I feel badly for M, Mario. That had to have been a terrible jolt but reading YOUR thoughts about your litterbox being moved made me and mommy laff! xxooxx

Happy belated birthday to your mom and purrs for everything back to normal asap. I've flooded the house by tub several times over the years but finally learned my lesson ;-

Mommmy has left the tap running when Lexy drinks sometimes. And our litterbox is there, too. I hope she remembers to shut it off from now on!

Well it could have been worse Mario, they could have been going out to the store or something. Happy Birthday to M from all of us!

Oh no! Cat bloggers sure are having water issues lately...it kind of makes me worry!

Hope your mom has been able to enjoy her birthday anyways!

Eeek! That doesn't sound like a very happy birthday to me! :-( We think she should celebrate maybe next week or something.

You're right, Mario, that's not a good way to spend a birthday. We hope M managed to enjoy her birthday despite this. Happy Birthday to her.

Oh my gosh, what a mess. When you said she "pulled the stopper" I thought that meant the drain was open. I guess that means she pulled the stopper thingy up so that the water would puddle in the sink for you. Sounds like they have it all under control now. Hopefully the noisy equipment is gone soon.

meowmeowmans said...

Oh no! Poor M! And poor you, too, Mario. We hope M's birthday was okay, despite this incident.

Oh no, that sounds like quite a mess! We are sorry your mom didn't have a very good birthday. We hope the rest of the year treats her much better!
