Why is my shower leaking and not draining

Hi humans.

Do you know what’s not cool? Having the ceiling about your shower leak.

Do you know what’s even more not cool? Not having any of the leaking water drain out.

Yes, that is how I found my shower when I woke up this morning.

Fortunately, our maintenance staff was available when I woke up, and they came in to get everything cleaned up and started working on the leak above my shower. In order to do that, they completely tore out the entire ceiling above my shower to get access to the pipes.

Meanwhile, they let me use a spare, vacant room to shower so I wouldn’t have to go to work in the morning all smelly and unshowered.
