It really ticks me off when my wife, who doesn't know beans about anything, calls everything a THINGY. She told me today that the thingy under the sink was leaking. I checked the "thingy" out and saw that there actually was a leak where a white pipe joined a black pipe. The white pipe was sticking out the the sink and was about the length of a ruler with 2 or 3 inches missing. The water was coming out at the top of the black nut where the two pipes came together. My neighbor, who graduated from high-school, told me that the trouble was that my black pipe shouldn't have been doing business with my white pipe. As far as I know, he isn't prejudiced or anything like that do you think he might have a point?
