You had a leaky outdoor faucet you were gonna fix. You could have called a plumber, but you figured that would cost so much you might as well just torch the joint and go for the insurance. So now you're halfway through the plumbing job. It's old jack-leg pipes and stuff. You can't finish unless you find something called a 3/4-inch galvanized nipple. You told the doofus at the big-box store what you were looking for, and he started to lift his shirt. So look: go where the plumbers go. Go to Teter's in Lakewood. They've got all that stuff. They're real nice. They deal with amateurs. And who knows? You might meet a plumber. Park on the side, where all those plumbing vans are lined up.
