As I age and become unable to do things I once did, I find myself feeling like I have lost my purpose in life. This time of the year for several reasons, I tend to get sad and the weather is only a very small part of it. The sun is shining today so I took off on my walk and saw a young lady with her small children and dog coming out of their house for their daily walk. She stopped so I could pet the dog, a beautiful tri-colored collie, and I asked how her morning was going since she is usually down the street at this time. She told me of a problem with her toilet running and her husband was away for a few days (he is a contract ER doctor) and she couldn't get the wall faucet valve to turn to shut it off. She said she looked inside but didn't have any idea what to do and the repair guy wouldn't be there till 3 PM. I asked if I could take a look at it and she agreed and showed me inside. Removing the lid, I saw it was like mine and one of the double-stopper super flush turbo models. I pointed to where on one of the stoppers, the chain had wrapped around the lever. I had her unwrap it and notice how the chain now hung loose and allowed the stopper to shut. I explained what caused this was someone not holding the flush lever down for a second and just flicking it allowing the chain to jump up and catch around the lever in a half turn. Unlike the older single-stopper toilets, this one chain needed more slack so it worked right with the other stopper both activated by a single flush lever. Never allow the flush handle to backlash and the problem won't happen again. She offered to pay me or bring me something and I refused, saying, "You have already done enough." She was puzzled so I explained that this had brightened my day making me feel needed and of use. I explained to her that unexpected and unsolicited things like this gave me a feeling of purpose in life and that she would only understand it when she gets old.
