Plumber I'm Not
I unscrewed the screw and pulled off the handle and - BOOM!! Water shot out of the faucet, hit the light above, the light exploded, glass splintering everywhere. I tried putting the faucet back in, but it was the hot water and it was too hot. The sink filled up right away and overflowed. Water was shooting up everywhere. I tried again to shut off the water valve under the sink. Still wouldn't budge. I ran to the basement and looked frantically for the main shut off valve. Couldn't remember where it was. Water was coming down through the floorboards.
I guess my next career will not be plumbing. But at least I tried.
