Daily Dilemma - My Boyfriend, the "Plumber"

Dear Kelly,


I need advice from the guys on how to hire a plumber without hurting my boyfriend's feelings.  We don't live together but he knows how I struggle financially to maintain the house while raising three kids so when the toilet in the boys' bathroom broke he offered to fix it.  He started working on it and thought he had it fixed but was wrong.  Two months later the four of us are using my bathroom and I can't take it anymore! 


I Want My Bathroom Back!

Dear I.W.M.B.B.,


I'm not sure how you can get the toilet fixed by a professional without hurting your boyfriend's feelings, but I do know you need to call Three Way Plumbing.  The company owner is a woman who knows what it's like to manage a home, work, and raise kids.  You won't get charged for things you don't need, and the work will be done quickly.  Maybe you can schedule your Three Way Plumbing visit one day when the boyfriend isn't stopping by, then the next time he comes over just tell him it started working again.  That's what I would do!


Good luck,
Kelly McKay
