I don't understand your description allmidnighteyes, so please accept my apology if I mis-understood you, but my understanding of OP was that she hadn't screwed her shower head in properly. Just as you would tighten... nut and bolts, the maintenance guys just screwed it in.
I kind of thought that the reason it kept falling off was cause it wasn't tightened enough and that's all they had to do and she's feeling crap cause she didn't realize it was something so simple and now she feels stupid. But I'm confused now since you brought up a different perspective...
If I understand this right, you're pissed at them? If so, how.. stupid are you..? If I understand this wrong, then it's just normal clumsiness. Get over it.
I'm assuming you rent, then? Start taking pictures or video of whatever is broken, before and after the so-called "repairs". You could potentially sue the landlord or property manager for breach of contract (providing they knew their repairmen weren't doing their jobs). Get evidence, then go to court if this has happened several times.
That's also assuming I read your FML correctly. It's very confusing. Do you mean that they didn't fix anything, just came in, dicked around and left, in which case your shower still has problems? Or do you mean that they came in and solved a very simple problem for you and you're now kicking yourself for not noticing something so obvious? I'm assuming the former.
Personally, to me, "turning the shower head around" means that they reversed it and put it into the wall and screwed her all the way around, so don't give him/her a hard time about misinterpreting meaning...the OP didn't describe well, so consider other interpretations before you act like a dick next time.
