Day #1 without water, tap or sink.
Day #2, much the same as Day #1, more (&)@$_&_)$&Q_)@&$Q()&@ and then he says he's going for his nap. I went out, came home hours later, he's up, hands me the computer which has a few tap samples displayed and says "Pick one!" I did. He goes to hockey and says that he'll stop on the way and pick it up. Says that the old one is 7 years old anyway and we're due for a new one. Ladies...I'll have you know I'm still keeping my mouth shut.
Day #2 without water, tap or sink.
Day#3...got my new tap...things are looking up.
Thank god for Day #4. He gets up early, and bless his heart, voila, I have a new tap! He gets me to try it out. It has all the bells and whistles, even pulls out so you can spray with the hose. So that free replacement part cost us $129.00 for a new tap and parts. See I told you nothing is ever really free!
As I'm admiring this new wonderful addition to my kitchen....it drips a tiny, glistening bead of water from it's flashy chrome spout....Ladies, I kept my mouth shut!
