Let's hear it for avoiding a massive faux pas!

(But I hope you'll understand if my post is MQ-formatted.)

saoba and grillghod have been dealing with a burst pipe on their property, and the [REDACTED] tenants responsible for same.

Me: He says he doesn't understand what happened. He even left the hose hooked up. Gah!

GG: Yeah, I heard that. I'm sorry you had such a crappy day. (pause) Sweetie? When did you eat last?

Me: Lunch. I was going to get a shower and eat before I left for dress and then-

GG: Yeah. Listen, you go take a shower and then we'll go get you something to eat, okay?

Me: (Gives him an enquiring look, having noticed he is using his 'someone here is a ticking bomb' voice)

GG: It's just as I was coming back in I saw the hammer and the bayonet in the laundry room.

Me: I had to pry things up and pull things open. It's a perfectly reasonable tool set for the situation I was facing.

GG: I'm not disagreeing, I'm just saying any day that involves needing a hammer and a bayonet is a day that should end in someone buying you dinner.

Oh the context outside is frightful....
