When It Rains It Pours!

When it rain it pours. 


Yesterday I was able to get a used refrigerator. Well, my ex came by to help me put the old one out before picking up the new one. 


While doing so we found a copper line running from the refrigerator. I told him it had to be the ice maker. Well, he called his brother who is a handyman, and he tried walking him through how to disconnect by turning the water off. He (ex) couldn't find the valve and I told him several times to just leave it. I'll have the company (appliance store) to deliver and pay, they should know how to disconnect. 


Long story short, he called his cousin who walked him through, cousin is a plumber, and now I have no running water in the kitchen. I told him a 100xs to just leave it. Apparently, something is clogging the pipes. I really didn't want to be spending any extra money. I don't fault him because my dishwasher stop draining some time ago and my ice maker stop making ice so it was bound to happen but why now? I can't help but think if he had just left it alone as I instructed I would have water and a least when the appliance company came if the water had stopped I could pay the company to fix it right then and there.


More money being spent. Unbelievable

    These things always seem to happen at the worst possible time and seem to come in clumps. This may be of little comfort, but the good news is that because you have been so diligent about saving an emergency fund, you have the money to pay for this without going into debt to do it.

    Hopefully this is the last of your troubles. I'm sorry it's all come at once.

    I'm a little surprised that the folks who deliver appliances would even work on your water line for your fridge. The last few times we bought a fridge, they informed they would not hook up the water line for the ice maker and I told them that was fine, I wasn't planning on using the ice maker.

    @Rob, the company is some kind of certified something, I cant remember the certification. I had used them to get money back for damage caused by a thunderstorm
