I am feeling all handy-man right now. Our kitchen sink disposal tried to eat a tchotchke Google LED pen and choked on one of the batteries and was summarily destoyed. Water leaked out of the bottom of it and it shorted out.
So, I went out and bought a new one and… I installed it all by myself. And nothing leaked. And it works. I know, I know… many of you out there are thinking, “So what? Big deal,” in your best Buckaroo Banzai quoting voices but this is a big deal to me. To date, where I am proficient at all things computer, my skills with the more mechanical have not been tested. I usually avoid dealing with anything plumbing or electric related and call in the experts.
I’m very happy at the few hundred dollars I just saved by doing it myself.
