Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Adventures in Homeownership, Volume MCMXVII
OK, um, yeah, leaks I can understand, even leaks in kind of random places like the hallway, sure, but the part where there's foam coming out of the wall is what's really got me scratching my head...


Given that this started about half an hour after I heard Upstairs leave for work and the bubbles smell like some sort of Product, I'm kinda thinking her bathtub drain's sprung a leak somewhere between the two units -- anybody?

I'd put my money on dish soap or laundry soap.

How it is coming out of your wall is all kinds of WTF.. Unless you have a rabid ghost...

Nah, both of those would be on the other end of the unit, and I know that the bathroom pipes are somewhere right here...

oh lord. water damage is so not good. :/ I'm sorry. Have you called a plumber? What do you do when you share common wall space and you think the problem is in another unit?

Well, it involves a lot of phone tag, for starters -- I think at the moment I'm waiting for Upstairs to call Maintenance so M. can get back to me, all of which is kind of complicated by the fact that according to Upstairs-On-3, Upstairs-Above-Us is in New Orleans and all of this is having to pass through her roommate, who's apparently trying to pass the buck to it being something going on with Upstairs-On-2... {sigh}

(And M. actually just called to say that he can send someone out to take a gander at at least our unit sometime after 1 today... darn, I need a nap already.)

I bet that drywall's going to come off before all is said and done, even though it's probably upstairs.

You're probably not wrong, considering how much of it looks damp even beyond the actual seam in the ceiling that the water was dripping out of... {sigh}
