You know those moments where you hear a loud noise when you’re home alone? Or ever had those moments that you are so focused on what you are doing that when someone starts talking to you jolt up because you were unaware that they had even entered the room? What kind of response do you have in those situations? Are you the person that is ready at any provocation to take a running leap out of the room? Or are you suddenly prepared to stand your ground and deal with the supposed threat? When it comes down to reacting to a stressor – are you more flight or more fight?
I have a friend who is famous for their flight response.
Our friends will regularly joke that with every loud noise they are ready to jump out of the nearest window. At an event where we gathered around our friends who had just performed in a local theater production, somewhere nearby a motorcycle started up and backfired. This friend immediately pushed people out of their way to start running the opposite direction. There is nothing wrong with having a strong flight response. It is a very natural response activated due to the sudden release of hormones in your body from a real or perceived threat. However, a flight response will not do a lot of good if you ever come face to face with a plumbing emergency. We get it, you walk into your home and find the floor covered in water, or you turn the knob of your faucet only get a geyser-like projectile of water in your face. Anyone would rather turn around and run away. If only to step away from the situation and to not have to deal with any flooding, leaks, or broken appliances. These are situations that you need to call an emergency plumber and fast. NIR Plumbing is available for emergency calls 24/7. And we will never charge you extra for your emergencies. The cost is always the same on weekends, nights and holidays. If you ever find yourself in a fight or flight situation that has to do with plumbing – make sure you give us a call.
