We moved into our home over a year ago, and have had the pleasure of unplugging the sink three times. Today was number three. We have learned a little about teamwork through this trial, as well as how many peelings..and how much water to put down the garburator/insinkerator/food disposal..whatever you want to call it.
After buying a very big wrench and a plumbing snake (as well as a little help from google), the first two times were easy..we put everything back together and were so proud of ourselves. This time, it took a bit longer, but still with both of us under the sink we were able to unplug it.
It can be hard to work together, especially when someone gets blamed, or someone gets defensive, or someone thinks their way is the best, and the other person does not agree. This type of scenario happens all the time. I am reminded time and time again that the word TEAM does not have an I in it. In order to solve some problems, you have to let go of selfish pride, and be a little humble, and work at things together for the greater good.
I think our sink gets plugged to keep us reminded of this!
