The One Stooge

I was plumbing today. My job was to fix a dripping faucet. In the process I hit some drain pipes and knocked them apart. The water in the sink started coming down the drain onto a cabinet. Over and over again I'd sponge it up with a paper towel, and then squeezed the water into the sink. Down it would come again. Where's my wife? How can I call a plumber? Where's a bucket? Help! This went on for about 1/2 of an hour when I finally realized that I was the culprit, putting water in the sink that was then falling onto the floor of the cabinet. Stupid? Funny? Don't laugh... please!

Sorry, Kim, but I laughed!

I read today that in Chan (Chinese Zen) the practitioners are slapped when they don't expect it. They are not supposed to react. I, on the other hand, was in such a frenzy that I couldn't see that I was the culprit.
