Why is it that when you own a home, it seems that something is always going wrong. It's like everything just takes a turn. When you think everything is finally the way you want it, Wham! something breaks, or breaks down.This morning, I got out of the shower, and my wife said, "Tony, you know that metal circular plate outside on the house? The one that is above where the pipe goes out to the cesspool? Is that supposed to have water coming out?"DOH!!!!So, here I am, waiting for the cesspool guys to come by to fix whatever is wrong. Either there's a clog, or the cesspool is full. And you just know, this isn't going to be a $25 expense.But, on the bright side, it made me think that this is just another example of why having an emergency fund is so important. Sure, I could just give them my credit card, but why? I have enough in my fund to take care of this (I mean it's not like they're going to have to replace the cesspool) and I don't have to worry about how this is going to be paid. It's still aggravating though.Did you ever notice how these things always seem to occur on a weekend. Sheesh!Tony...but I still am...Off2Aruba
