Being a single mom, I knew really little about how to maintain our home.
My dad never taught me what to do because he thought I would have a partner to the home’s repair! He was busy teaching our brothers how to take care of small electrical plus plumbing matters, and when our living room sink was running slow, plus I noticed water in the bottom of the chaletet, the first thing I did was call a plumber, however i had to get the leak fixed or I would end up with mold in the chaletet, which would not be safe for our baby.
When our dad found out I called a plumber, he was furious. He wanted to guess what I hadn’t called him. I remembered how he kicked me out of the condo when he found out I was pregnant. He didn’t want a cheap floozy residing with him. My fiance was in the service, plus both of us planned on getting married when he got home, however our dad had never met him plus thought he was in our imagination; The plumber was at the condo when dad got there. He told me I needed to call our homeowner’s insurance company plus tell them I needed to remediate the mold. He said the sink had to have been leaking long before I moved into the house. The insurance company tested the mold plus paid to have the flooring replaced plus current pipes put into our sink, and dad shrugged plus said he could have made the same suggestion, however since the plumber would get paid by our insurance plus he wouldn’t, I should let the plumber handle the job.
