Holy shit!

Tonight I ran a load of laundry.  Sat in the office upstairs working and studying, never heard anything unusual.  After a while I emerge, look down at the carpet, and . . . there is a GIANT wet spot.  I mean gigantic.  And it looks like it would have been bigger except the laundry pile of towels and blankets outside the utility door caught a lot of it.

Oh. my. God.

So I start grabbing towels and soaking it up.  I don’t know what else to do.  I just keep doing that and throw all the towels into the tub.

And then I get downstairs.  The ceiling is dripping in one corner onto a bookshelf.  Two feet away, a chair pad is wet in my dining room.  There is a drip in my downstairs bathroom.


So I move things, grab buckets, all that.  And then I . . . well, just who in the hell do I call in this situation?  The apartment office is closed.  I called and left them a message and put in an urgent service request online.  And then I called C at work just to tell her about it because seriously??  The washer exploded.
