Default What a f'ed up day

Not only is it Monday and work was a pita. I come home and the basement has backed up and there is waste in the water. Long story short I have to have the sewer line from the house to the road replaced. Called a local guy and wellim looking at nearly 8,000 dollars to have it done. Wtf well end of my rant. If you have had or foresee yourself having a shitty day feel free to share.

Well, I bought insurance through the city to cover the water/sewer line so I'm good there....

But...

Over the weekend I was in Ohio and checking my bank account I noticed some odd ATM activity, so I called my wife and had her go to the bank to see what was going on. Turns out her ATM card had been cloned and multiple $20 withdrawals were made, totaling over $500 and causing almost $300 in overdraft fees.

So today, I go to work and check my truck to see if it will start after sitting for a couple weeks. As I expected, the battery was weak. Buy a new one ($130) and install it, truck fires up. After work, I go to the police station to file a report about the identity theft and when I get done, the truck won't start. Turns out the starter took a shit.

Walk home to get the Durango (that needs upper control arm bushings) to towbar the F150 home, only to find that since it does not have a bumper, just a push bar, there is no place the tow bar will attach. Drive home again, ask my neighbor down the block if he can give me a tow, so we go to get the truck. Just in time it seems, as just as we are pulling out, the impound tow truck is pulling in.

So- in short, a $1300 paycheck gets killed quickly. Fun.

Yes the guy sent the camera down the line after he snaked it. The clay pipe is collapsed and major root damage. I'm in Romulus

Check with them and see what you own and they own some times the city will own up to the clean out or to the sidewalk.

I had the same good day. The only time I heard from my boss today was when he replied, "Lucky!" when I emailed him to tell him I had to leave early tomorrow for a dentist appointment.

I hit a deer today in my fairly new car (less than 1 year old) and that made me crabby.

Your day sounds a lot worse then mine, I'm going to take the glass half full approach.

A guy on my FD has a root/clay pipe issue. He bought a bunch of piping, bought some beers, a friend brought an old back hoe over and we put a new line in. Took a Saturday afternoon.
