They say bad things happen in 3's, what they don't say is how many sets of 3's.
First some moron thought it would be hilarious to throw a brick through the back window of our car - $300
Then the headlight blew - $50
Then the battery died - $110
Ok so that's 3 bad car related problems.
2 nights ago my OH was putting wood on the fire, one stick was too long, he decided to shut the door on it anyway thinking the glass would miraculously be stronger than the solid bit of wood. Needless to say the wood came out the other side of the glass - $200
The laundry trough got clogged the other day and overflowed, making the lino bubble, now we need to replace the flooring in the laundry - $????
I thought our 3rd bad 'house' related thing came when at midday there was a knock on the door.
Our dogs were all inside, but were barking their heads off as they usually do when there's a knock at the door.
Man at door: Hi, I'm here with xxx city council following up on a barking dog complaint
Me: Ummmm, okay.... *silently thinking every expletive word I know*
Man at door: Yes, have you heard the dog at this house here barking (points to neighbors house)
Me: OH! No, no problems there.
Man at door: Ok, can I just get your details (get's details) ok, thankyou.
Thankyou dogs, that looked REALLY good, NOT!
So who wants to place bets on what our third bad thing will be for the house?
