Boyfriend for hire

First load of dishes in the new condo are washed and dried in the dishwasher just fine. Second load of dishes is a different story. About 10 minutes into it, I come into the kitchen only to realize there’s water everywhere – on the floor, on the counters, in the sink, dripping under the sink, and spewing straight out from the sink aerator. WHAT the?!?!

So I do some online research and chat a bit with my boss (who just finished remodeling her kitchen). She is convinced that it’s the aerator’s fault and that it either needs to be cleaned or replaced, simple and easy, at most $3. So I relay the message to boyfriend, who takes apart the aerator only to find that it’s just fine and in working order. Hmm…

Google this, Google that, mention to boyfriend that it could be the brand new disposal he just installed last week. Turns out that if you are connecting your disposal to a dishwasher there’s this little plug on the disposal that needs to be popped out before you install it, otherwise when you run the dishwasher, water will spew straight out from the sink aerator. Huh. Go figure. You would think the disposal directions would have mentioned that. No matter, we fix.

Boyfriend removes the disposal, pops out the plug, reinstalls the disposal, and reinstalls the sink aerator and all its parts. All in like an hour. So I check the dishwasher again, and what do you know, it works!!! And for zero dollars extra. Not a drop of water. Hurray for boyfriend!!

Sorry ladies, he’s all mine.
