  • Not really very interesting...

    just I'm bored and I've never had this happen before.

    Went to unscrew an aerator form a delta lav faucet. It was on there too tight to do with my hand, so I gave it a little twist with some channel locks... not hard. Aerator came off, still screwed into the brass cylinder that used to be soldered onto the 3/8" soft internal to the faucet.

    Guess I should be glad it was a decent 'real' faucet and what broke was a solder joint because I was able to solder it back together again. Wouldn't have bothered, but it was a slow day and I thought it was 50-50 if I could do it w/o burning the faucet up, and a new one was a half hour away, and it's probably not billable, so I thought I'd try. Sweated up bomber.
    This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
