vise grips sink handle

I’m not sure what a vice grip as a kitchen faucet handle says about us.

The handle that belongs on the faucet has been falling off for two years. Two years! It drove us batty every time we forgot it was loose and the handle fell off, clunking into the sink. The problem is, I don’t want to just replace it, I want to upgrade it with a new fancy, whiz-bang faucet. A faucet I’ve yet to settle on or save the money for.

So I arrive home the other day to find that Paul has come up with a Yankee solution. A vice grip has assumed the job of faucet handle.

A few days use and we don’t think twice about this curiosity. I wonder how long we’ll live with the vice grip before we break down and purchase a new faucet?
