First I have to say that I was having a really rotten day at work. I'd try to explain, but you just had to be there to understand.

So at my last break, I check my phone for messages. I find a voicemail from my wife saying " I just called to say I love you and I have a surprise ". That should be a good thing......right ? My little imagination can run wild with that one!

Well I call her back to find out the surprise, thinking it has to be something really good, only to find out that we got our taxes back from the tax guy, and we owe Uncle Sammy just under a thousand dollars. I thanked her for further ruining my day with this wonderful surprise.

No that was'nt the surprise..... so maybe just maybe it could still be something good.

She got silent for a minute, then said " the surprise I was talking about is that there is something wrong with your filter, and about 1/3 of your water is not in your tank anymore, it's now in the carpet.

So we've been doing the cleaning, soaking up water, drying, tank in the middle of the room thing.

And all I can think of is......

Shouldn't "I just called to say I love you, and I have a surprise" be a good thing ?

Hmmmm....I would demand a refund...or at least a tube of silicone as a consolation prize!

Aw, that sounds like a terrible day. I think "surprises" should be a good thing. Hang in there.

I would have to say she owes you "compensation" for ruining your day

Aw, sorry to hear this. Hope you get this all sorted shortly and the feeling of squishy carpet under your feet goes away!!
But yes, surprises are meant to be a good thing, a leaky tank is NOT a good thing!
