The Foul Smell Of Ignorance & Ignoring

…is it Halloween already ???

*checks calendar*

Oh, I guess it isn’t but it sure feels like it.

The reason for wondering this can best be explained if you imagine the following…

A pipe running from your toilet to the sewer breaks off & wastewater begins to spill into the crawl space beneath your home.

What do you do ?

Apparently – out of all the possible choices – you totally ignore it & go about your business like nothing’s wrong.

Because if you ask about that smell spreading throughout the house, the official reply is: “Oh, that’s coming from somewhere outside”.

& when you ask about the toilet after you notice it has developed a sudden talent for gurgling right after flushing ?

Well, that one’s not even addressed.

Even worse though is when after finally calling a company to come & take a look at it (the friendly 2 guys of which indeed confirm a pipe is damaged & you’re now basically living right on top of raw sewage land) they’re nearly sent away because “surely, other companies are cheaper than this ?”.

But the real gem here is people who after all this time still don’t grasp why little facts like these explain why I cannot stand the utter bastard of a guy who once conceived me.

It’s odd how, for a price, an inanimate object like a broken pipe can be changed so easily.

& yet human ignorance somehow apparently cannot.

A truth that smells like a sewer.
