Snippets of everyday conversation #6

Me (standing in the kitchen calling to the plumber who is stood in the hallway by the front door) - "Do you know there's water currently dripping through the kitchen ceiling?"

Plumber - "Yes"

Silence before I hear the plumber going up the stairs.

Is that it? Is a 'yes' all we get?  No explanation. No reassurance.  And why aren't I asking for futher informatiion?  I am outnumbered 2 to 1 by plumbers, too intimidated in my own home to ask a futile water leaking question.  Me and The Baby make a swift retreat to hide out in the living room trying to pretend none of this is happening.  I remind myself that it will all be worth it once we have a new shower room and bathroom.
