Super Marcos!

November 15, 2009

Marcos, our doorman/super was around today, and as I came back from getting acai for breakfast, I asked him what I should do about our drain.  He wasn’t there yesterday, and the other doorman who fill in on Marcos’s day off are not as helpful.  Marcos said he’d come up and take a look.

After a few minutes of looking, and moving the accumulated dishes away, he asked if I had a rag (pan, I learned in Portuguese).  Like McGyver, he wet the rag, balled it up, and used it like a plunger.  Within minutes, the sink was draining again as if nothing had ever happened.  It was really cool.
