Just recently I had a leaky pipe.. Drip,drip drip.. Ignore ..ignore ignore..
My friends all gave the name of a affordable plumber..drip,drip... That bucket will take care of it..I'm to busy.. Work, family, activites, .. Drip drip..
My friends " you still havnt called that plumber". Fine so I cheap out and call handy man Charlie..
Charlie " sure Mrs. I can fix it . It will be $100.00" Great.. It's fixed and at half the price..
Ugh.. Drip, drip drip.. So I call Charlie back .. Charlie now gives me the silent treatment...he got his money..
In the interim ... The leak is now worse than before.. Good thing for the bucket..drip ..drip..
Finally,, I get around to calling my friends for the real plumbers number.. they are now tired of this problem and don't return my calls.. Drip drip..
OMG... The pipe just exploded.. The water is shooting out everywhere.. It's now caused damage to the floors..OMG!!
Now from a small little leak I've now created a huge problem..HUGE..
Who should I Blame? My friends, my schedule,Charlie, how about the bucket??
Nope.. My fault ..
Result .. Time calling the insurance Co.. Time calling repair companies not only for the faucet but add the damaged wood floors into it..
The cost out of pocket is three time the original and let's not forget the stress of coordinating this..
As for my friends.. They love to say " I told you so"
Moral of this story.. Address problems head on ..Ignoring the problem results in a bigger problem..
