Many Missourians are frustrated this election season. Given that our March 15th Presidential caucus is still weeks away, we simply won’t have as much impact on the outcome as our Iowa neighbors to the
We at Fix St Louis feel your pain and have decided to do something about it. We have a plan that, in the meantime, will give you something meaningful to do, something more interesting to stare at than TV debates, and something that will have an even greater impact on your life than the next President of the United States.
We proudly introduce the Missouri Caulk-Us. Here’s how it works: First, stop watching those candidates on TV, get up from your chair, and walk to your bathtub. Now, look at the bathtub ledge. You see that once-white, once-solid hardened goop running along the perimeter? Pretty disgusting, huh? Worse yet, maybe some do-it-yourselfer in your household tried to cover it up with even more goop but didn’t have a good sense of how much to put on, or where it should go.
Also, while you’re there, do you see tiles where the grout is missing, letting water into the wall, possibly rotting it and loosening the tiles?
Now walk to your kitchen countertop and look at the similar white goop between the wall and either your backsplash or countertop. Is it discolored? Maybe brown, gray or black? Is it separating from the wall or countertop? Mind the gap (a little London Tube lingo there).
Yes, you SHOULD be angry to be living in a house where even hardened white goop mocks your cleaning habits. You’re not going to take it anymore. And, among all their fake promises, can you believe that not a single candidate from either party is offering a federal program to replace your caulk for free? Some don’t even think you have a right to own a CAULK gun!
Gawk at your caulk, then give Fix St. Louis a call. Let’s make America grout again.
Sometimes you’ve got to wonder whether all this new technology is really worth it. Once, if you wanted to fill-up your bathroom sink with water, you’d use a simple rubber plug on a chain, and the only moving part needed was YOU!
Oh, but no. That wasn’t good enough for those of us living in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We didn’t want this plugging process to get our hands wet (even though we were in the process of getting our hands wet), or spend time thinking about where to put that stupid plug and chain when it wasn’t in use, or have it drip onto the counter or floor, or replace the plug when it dried-out, started sprouting new life forms, or in other ways became totally gross.
So, our nation’s clearest thinkers in dirty water came up with the pop-up stopper design shown to the right, that has more moving parts than the 2016 BWM 4 Series. A design that, like the BMW, requires maintenance by highly skilled mechanics.
So, now it’s time for our ‘plug’. At Fix St Louis, we can get your pop-up stopper working again without draining your finances like some overpriced German import car repair shop. Give us a call, and reassert your right as an American to fill and drain your bathroom sink on command.
Whether it’s the faucet, sink, or another aspect of your bathroom, we’re ready to help!
Sorry, but I have always had this fantasy of hiring a technician named Gorbachev, so I could hear our customers use that line. But, I can’t seem to lure the real one out of retirement and into a Fix St Louis shirt. Go figure.
Anyway, today we’ll be discussing those yucky walls around your shower or tub. If that sentence made no sense to you, you’re free to go. But for the 99% of you remaining, you know what I mean.
Those walls with those sickly, shiny avocado green squares that are supposed to have dry white stuff between them, but the white stuff is missing in places, or the white stuff is actually now black. Maybe a tile or two are sticking-out, missing, or a bulge of wet drywall behind it is shoving tiles out of place.
