Our kitchen faucet was broken and crap, so we bought a new one. I go to install it last night, and it did not go as well as I expected. Switching a faucet is easy. A complete dumbass should be able to do it. It is never a good thing when you have to bust out the Sawzall to remove the old faucet. I did, and that was done. Installing the new faucet was easy…. until I got to hooking up the water supply lines. For some stupid-ass reason, the plumber who installed the water lines to the sink used weird-ass shutoff valves. Non-standard shutoff valves. Now, I have two different female ends that need connected. The guy at the hardware store insisted I was crazy. Why the hell would people use non-standard equipment? It just makes life way more difficult for the people who use and work on it. Whoever decided to use those weird shutoff valves deserves a throat punch.
