still need the right tools

i was telling paul about my adventures in replacing the bathroom faucet with the lack of proper tools.

me: so i was trying to get the old faucet off, but there’s 9 years of dirt, grime, and mineral deposits that i had to fight with and i didn’t have any of the right tools.
paul: so you had one of those basin wrenches?
me: no, i just told you i didn’t have the right tools.
paul: what??
me: yeah, all i had was a pipe wrench and pliers.
paul: so did you get it off?
me: yeah, but i had to rip off the basin from the pedestal to get access.
paul: so you recaulked the basin?
me: yeah.
paul: man.
me: i know.
