Lori's father has suggested that if I were to dig away the earth covering the pipe, he and I could replace the pipe. Doing this would be significantly cheaper than having a plumber do it, and because of my financial crunch, cheaper has significant appeal to me.
But to me it seems like incredibly grungy and arduous work. I don't want to do it.
Which leaves me feeling embarrassed, because it seems that to Les, it's just a job. Yeah, it's an unpleasant job, but it doesn't daunt him the way it daunts me.
He says it's okay with him if I just pay to get it fixed. I believe that it's okay with him. But I feel that I'd be wussing out to do so.
