“Dude! What the hell are you banging away at now?”
“Well, dude, since the water’s out in the house anyway, I figured it was time to fix the faucet in the bathroom that’s been bugging you.”
“Y’mean the drippy Chinese water torture one? Booyeah! But why do you have to make so much noise to make the thing quiet?”
“The taps don’t come apart by themselves, dude. Especially not taps as old as these are.”
“Yeah, dude. To stop the faucet from dripping, I have to take the taps apart and replace the worn-out washers.”
“Right, dude. To get the faucet to stay dry, you need … washers? Shouldn’t they be calling those things dryers?”
“Dude, I’ve got all I can handle with the sink right now. If you think I’m going to plumb your English too, you can kindly think again.”
