Câu trả lời:

There’s a story I think I’ll never forget. I was already in bed when I heard a strange noise coming from the kitchen. I rushed there, opened the door and what I saw made me totally shocked. Water was gushing out from the broken faucet.

Of course, it didn’t happen unexpectedly. It was bound to happen sooner or later. First of all, the faucet was old. And it should have been replaced, but we were always too busy to deal with it. And we kept putting it off. What’s more, we just ignored the harbingers of the impending disaster. For example, a few days before this happened I noticed the faucet was dripping. I told my husband about it, but he said there was absolutely nothing to worry about.

A few days later it became apparent that there was something to worry about. The worst thing was that it was almost midnight. So there was very little chance that we would find a 24-hour emergency plumbing repair service. In any case, we had to deal with the problem urgently. What we did immediately was turn off water at the main shutoff valve, which is at the water meter. Thank God, it didn’t take us much time to find it. That’s all we could do ourselves. The next morning I contacted a local plumbing repair service and scheduled a service call for plumbing repair ’cause fixing is not my husband’s forte.

It was a nightmare, but I was feeling happy ’cause we didn’t flood our neighbours.
