Expect the unexpected... Eek!
avatar October 11, 2017 02:08PM
I had to remove our downstairs toilet to remove a toilet paper holder that had gotten stuck inside it. I did it one morning before I went to work. As the day progressed I got messages from my wife like this:

"I want to replace the cracked tile where the toilet went."

"I hate the sink cabinet. It's nasty."

"The tile backer that was under the tile has crumbled."

"The chipboard that was under the tile backer is moldy and has disintegrated."

"The plywood under the chipboard is rotten."

"Down to the original pine floors from 1802, they are sagging a little."

"Oh, just noticed all the mold on the wainscoting. It's not original so I'm going to remove it."

This went on and on. I came home at the end of the day to this (well, this is after I cleaned it up and foamed some holes).
