All right! There is no excuse. I should have read the label first before pouring all the content inside my sink. But it’s all too late now. Stupid me!
All I wanted to do was to de-clog my kitchen sink because the water doesn’t run down as quickly as I wanted it to. What was my quick fix? I bought Liquid Sosa at our lobby costing roughly P75.00 ($1.50) per bottle. Not much all right if it’s going to fix the clog and dirt in my sink.
I quickly head up and excitedly pour all the content in my sink. No brainer, right? I left it for a while and went online as usual. 5 minutes later I heard turmoil coming from the sink. The sound was so loud I though the entire sink will fly and kill me. What did I do? I hid inside the bathroom where I felt safe just in case the whole kitchen sink explodes into pieces. It was indeed an ugly way to die, I thought!
Luckily, there wasn’t any explosion.
I carefully opened the bathroom door and peeped what was going on. The sink looked normal and everything subsided. Whew! There is a gawd after all!
Now it’s time to check what happened. I turn the water on, slowly first. No clog! I was about to jump with glee upon seeing the initial effect. But I needed to be sure so I turned the water full blast. NO CLOG! Horay!
Then there was a tick coming from underneath the kitchen – suddenly all the water came out from the kitchen cabinet. As I opened the cabinet, this is what I saw…
I had it checked this morning and when the handy man saw it – He laughed so loud I wanted to poke his big, yellowish eyes.
“Nilagyan mo’to ng Sosa ‘no? (You poured Sosa in it, right?) The stinking handy man asked.
“Oho!” (Yes!) I answered rudely.
Then he continued with all these litanies…
“Binasa mo ba nag direction? Kahit 5 patak lang okay na. Sana pinatawag mo na lang ako sa admin.” (Did you bother to read the direction? 5 drops will do. You should have called admin office and asked for me)
“Sira na ‘po sya! Magagawa nyo ba? Kasi kung indi papatawag ako ng iba! (It’s all busted! Can you fix it? If not, I will call somebody else!) I irritatingly replied.
“Sige balikan kita sa Tuesday Morning.” (Alright, I will return on Tuesday to fix it) The handy man humbly replied.
Well, I didn’t fix it after all. But at least the clog is gone, BIG TIME!
