Today Jace walked into our garage and landed in ankle deep water. He asked me what I thought we should do and I obnoxiously replied, "swim in it!" instead we stood in it for over an hour and dumped buckets of water that were collected from our measly tupperware collection. While we were laboring we noticed that water continued to bubble out from the garage drain every time we heard our upstair neighbors use the water. When we realized that we were getting no where we stashed our containers, wiped our feet and made dinner (honey chicken stir fry... way good). When the tech guy came he told us that some pipe was broken which was causing all of our sewage water to overflow into the garage... yeah that's right sewage water... which we so happily pranced around in.This picture doesn't really do it justice. Jace was going to go back in it so I could get a good picture but we decided it wasn't worth it.
Thankfully the Roto Rooter guy came and was able to fix it. Jace kept trying to feed him like he was some stray dog... he eventually took a coke.
I just feel bad for the people who own the house... they keep all of their storage in the garage (including mattresses)
