I learnednot to lose my temper day before yesterday and it cost me $200.00.
The kitchen faucet got stuck (it swivels from one bowl to the next) I gave it a whack and broke the sprayer off, after 2 hours trying to dry the other wall and referig off and hearing DW tell me to stay calm, I found I could not repair the thing and would have to replace it (I figured$40,)
Off to Home Depot, you ever looked at how many variations there are, did I bring thew old one to compare ? NO!!
Finally on the third trip I hit the jack pot, but forgot to remember the old unit was hooked up to a filter and had non-standard fittings-Forth trip.
You would have thought I would have taken the old unit with me on the second trip. I forgot to mention I had to spend $150.to get the correct faucet.( No it was not made out of gold).Plus numerous brass fittings.
6 1/2 hours (Oh I forgot to mention the access hole was 3' x 3' and only 18" off the floor).
My neighbor told me later over a cold one, he would have done all the labor for $20.
Anyway good lessons and it looks better than befor.

Not funny, anger sometimes gets the best of me too. At least that's what my wife says. Lesson learned. But at least you were able to fix it yourself saving a lot of $$$$$.
