The Flood -Part 1

So last Monday morning, I woke up all alone as The Boy was doing an early shift in work.
I yawned and stretched and crawled out of bed.
I trudged into the main bathroom and had a quick shower.
Then on went the make-up, quick blow-dry of the fringe and on to breakfast.

And then I walked into our walk-in closet to pick out that day’s outfit.

Hmmmmm, is it just me or does the carpet feel a little damp?
No wait….A LOT damp.
No wait….SOAKING WET!
WTF!?

Just to give you an idea of our apartment’s layout, we have a main bathroom with a bath that leads off the hallway, and then when you go into our bedroom, our wardrobe is a mini-room that leads into an en-suite, which only The Boy uses cos he’s SO messy and boyish.

So there I am at 7:30am on my hands and knees trying to figure out just how much of the carpet was wet.
It was ALL wet.
I opened up the door leading into The Boy’s bathroom to find the floor under a half-inch of water.
He had clothes on the floor that were practically balls of water.
The air was heavy with moisture.
And there was a dripping noise.
Oh God, is there a leak?

I gave The Boy a ring…
The Boy: Hello?
Me: It’s me. What the hell happened in your bathroom?
The Boy: Ehh…..
Me: The Boy!! The wardrobe carpet is SOAKED!
The Boy: Oh I didn’t notice.
Me: Was it the shower? Did it overflow??
The Boy: Eh, yeah.
Me: AND YOU JUST LEFT!???? YOU DIDN’T CHECK TO SEE IF IT HAD LEAKED INTO THE CLOSET!?
The Boy: I didn’t think it had.
Me: And why didn’t you wake me up and tell me!?
The Boy: I didn’t think you’d notice. Plus I didn’t want to get your week off to a bad start by telling you.
Me: OH MY GOD!!!!! I can’t believe you just left it! Your bathroom’s destroyed and we’re going to get MOULD and there’s a dripping noise that isn’t coming from the tap or shower head! Are you sure it was the shower?
The Boy: Yeah…
Me: *frustrated hysterical-animal noise* I told you to unblock your drains WEEKS ago!!!!!!
The Boy: Sorry…

So while he get’s into work early, I was a half hour late as I attempted to soak up some of the water…
And this isn’t even NEARLY the worst part!
But you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to hear about that….
