They are at the point where they need help with things.
It's killing them too but it is what it is.

I don't mind doing all that I can. Sometimes that is several nights a week.

My dad called today and said that he had a plumbing problem.
Ok, tell me about it.

Well the toilet was running all the time so I bought a new one.

You did what??

I tried to change the flapper but it still leaked so I bought a new toilet.

OK. You really didn't need to do that but since you did, I can put it in if you want.

Well about that.

Uh-oh.

His granddaughter, my niece told him that her boyfriend would fix it.
I don't know how they even knew about it as they live 2 hours away.

Anywhoo. They came up today and he proceeded to break the pipe off in the wall, flood the house, tear out some sheetrock,
and LEAVE.

So now my folks have no toilet in the master, no water in the house, and they want to know if I'd like to look at it??!!!!

Well hell yeah I do!!
I would have much preferred to look at it in the first place though.

Well son, we didn't want to bother you. tapfoot:

Quality whine.

Taking care of the parents can be a challenge. Remember though, they changed your diapers for 7 or 8 years.
