Stanley had just finished brushing his teeth. He noticed water flowing into the toilet bowl. That's strange, he thought. The water continued to seep into the bowl. Stanley lifted the toilet tank top. The tank was half full, but the water was slowly rising. What in the world is going on, he wondered. He had not just flushed the toilet. He continued to watch the water rise in the tank. The water got up to the Water Line mark in the tank, where it was supposed to stop rising. But it continued to rise.

Stanley was alarmed. Is this thing going to overflow, he wondered. He went into his bedroom and grabbed some towels. When he returned to the bathroom, the toilet was silent. The water had stopped rising at one inch above the water line. But that was only about two inches below the top of the tank. That was too close for comfort. Stanley put two and two together. He had heard water running for more than a week now, but he had assumed it was his neighbor's toilet. Now he knew it was his own.

He called Henry the handyman. Henry was a really nice guy. His rates were much cheaper than a regular plumber's rates. Henry said he'd be over the next day. The next day, Henry arrived only 30 minutes late, which was "on time" for Henry. He tried to turn off the toilet tank shutoff valve on the bathroom wall, but the valve was "frozen." "We don't want to mess with that," he told Stanley. "That valve is too easy to bust, and it would take a lot of work to put a new one on."

Bình chứa nước bồn cầu

Stanley vừa đánh răng xong. Anh thấy nước tràn vào bồn cầu. Lạ thật, anh nghĩ. Nước tiếp tục rỉ vào bồn cầu. Stanley nhấc nắp bình chứa nước bồn cầu. Bình chứa đầy phân nửa, nhưng nuớc từ từ dâng lên. Vụ gì đang xảy ra, anh tự hỏi. Anh không chỉ giật bồn cầu. Anh tiếp tục xem nước dâng lên trong bình chứa. Nước tràn lên tới mực nước đánh dấu trong bình chứa, nơi nó phải ngừng dâng lên. Nhưng nó vẫn dâng lên.

Stanley báo động. Cái bình này sẽ chuẩn bị tràn, anh tự hỏi. Anh vào phòng ngủ và quơ lấy mấy cái khăn. Khi anh trở lại phòng tắm, bồn cầu im lặng. Nước đã ngừng dâng khi cao hơn mực nước một inch. Nhưng chỉ thấp hơn hai inch so với nắp của bình chứa. Điều này quá gần không thoải mái. Stanley ghép hai và hai lại với nhau. Anh đã nghe tiếng nước chảy hơn tuần nay, nhưng anh cho rằng đó là bồn cầu nhà bên cạnh. Bây giờ anh biết là của anh.

Anh gọi Henry người thợ sửa chửa lặt vặt. Henry thật sự là một anh chàng dễ mến. Giá cả của anh rẻ hơn nhiều so với giá của các thợ sửa nước thông thường. Hôm sau, Henry đến trễ 30 phút, đó là "đúng giờ" của Henry. Anh cố gắng tắt bình chứa bồn cầu, ngắt van trên tường phòng tắm, nhưng cái van bị "đóng băng". Chúng ta không muốn làm lộn xộn với nó, " anh nói với Stanley. "Cái van đó rất dễ phá, và sẽ tốn nhiều công để để một cái mới lên."

Stanley vừa mới chải răng xong. Anh để ý đến tiếng nước chảy vào bồn cầu. Điều này thật lạ lùng, anh suy nghĩ. Nước tiếp tục chảy rỉ rả vào bồn cầu. Stanley nhấc cái nắp đậy thùng nước xả bồn cầu lên. Thùng đã đầy một nửa, nhưng nước đang chầm chậm dâng lên. Chuyện gì sắp xảy ra vậy nè, anh tự hỏi. Anh đâu phải vừa mới dội bồn cầu đâu. Anh tiếp tục theo dõi nước dâng lên trong thùng. Nước dâng lên đến đường đánh dấu mực nước đầy, là nơi nó lẽ ra phải ngừng lại. Nhưng nó tiếp tục dâng lên.

Stanley thật lo lắng. Liệu chuyện này sẽ làm cho nước tràn ra không chứ, anh tự hỏi. Anh đi vào phòng ngủ và chụp lấy mấy cái khăn tắm. Khi anh trở lại phòng tắm, cái bồn cầu yên bặt. Nước ngừng dâng lên ở mức một inch phía trên đường mực nước đầy. Thế là có chuyện không ổn rồi. Stanley đoán chắc có điều gì đó xảy ra. Anh nghe tiếng nước chảy hơn cả tuần nay , nhưng anh cho rằng đó là ở nhà vệ sinh của người hàng xóm. Bây giờ thì anh biết đó là ở chính nhà của anh.

Anh gọi cho Henry, người thợ sửa chữa. Henry là một chàng trai thật dễ thương. Tiền công của anh ta rẻ hơn nhiều so với tiền công của những người thợ sửa ống nước bình thường. Henry nói ngày hôm sau anh sẽ tới. Vào ngày hôm sau, Henry tới trễ chỉ có 30 phút, đó là Henry đã "đúng giờ" lắm rồi. Anh ta cố gắng vặn chặt cái van đóng mở của thùng nước xả bồn cầu, nhưng cái van đã bị "kẹt cứng". Chúng ta không thể làm rối mọi chuyện với thứ này được," Anh ta nói với Stanley. "Cái van này dễ vỡ quá, và sẽ mất rất nhiều công để gắn lại một cái mới."

@ chị HoangThiQuynhNhu thân mến:

Hình như mình có chút kinh nghiệm trong việc sửa cái toilet tank; đã từng bị nước xịt tung toé trong phòng tắm vì quên khóa cái khóa tổng :), nên mình góp ý tí nghe:

1. be too close for comfort = việc gì(vận xui/mối đe doạ) quá gần làm bạn cảm thấy bất an/sợ hãi.
Theo như trong bài, mình nghĩ có thế dịch là: Thế là không ổn rồi /nguy rồi/ nguy tới nơi rồi v.v...

to be so close to you that you feel worried or frightened
His mother lives in the next street to us, which is a little too close for comfort.
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/diction ... or-comfort[
.
2. put two and two together = đoán / suy luận ra điều gì từ thông tin đã có.

put two and two together
to figure something out from the information available.

Well, I put two and two together and came up with an idea of who did it.
Don't worry. John won't figure it out. He can't put two and two together.

Cái khóa này hình như bên Viêt nam không thấy thợ lắp đặt. Muốn sửa cái toilet tank thì phải khóa cái khóa tổng thôi !

Thân.
