Everything has gone wrong. This day sucks. I'm cursed. I HATE migraines!
Try to fix a irrigation leak. And the REPAIRS leak! ARRRRRRRRRG!
I'm still alive, but for what? More self torment and pain and suffering.
I had this fix planned out, on paper. All the parts and supplies listed. Go to Home Depot, which is on the north end of town and a bit out of the way. Pick up the supplies, head home. Find out that I had 1-1/4" Sch 40 PVC pipe instead of 1", after cutting a small portion off the pipe, which makes it not returnable. I was doing this all on a budget of $29.00. I hate not having a job. I got the parts for $20.04. As it turns out later that I had not received the cash register receipt either. So I went back to the store, but the cashier that I dealt with was not there. Another woman was working instead. Got the reprinted bill with a store manager. Then I picked up a 1" 10 foot section of SCH 40 PVC pipe and return to the register. Got to my truck, and I forgot the recreated receipt. Went back an retrieved it from the counter where I left it. Fumbled about for the keys to lock the back f the camper shell.
Trip home was ok, but for my migraine aura induced hurry to get home. The guy in front seemed to be in snail mode.
This would be very funny if videoed or filmed. But not so funny when one is dealing with it. I decided to build the part. And all sorts of niggling little things go wrong. I fumble about. Gluing PVC pipe together is time sensitive process. One has only so long before the glue sets. But determined to get something done, I press forward. Then the neigboor fires up his lawn mower. Just great, extra loud noise makes it a bit difficult to concentrate. Push ahead, fetch my wireless headphones, which I manged to stretch out of place by placing over a computer case as a stand (it was to wide). So the head phones are loose and not of much use (need to get ear protection...) Manged to get the parts together. Test the system out. LEAKS!!! Tossed a tin can down the gravel path way in frustration (I could have done much more damage...) I NEED A brain transplant...
At least I can remove the unit and apply more teflon tape to the threads and hope it works better. Grrr. Life has been like this too long. I need a vacation.
Being unemployed is NOT a vacation!Update
