Re: Dumbass moments?

Just today I drove around trying to find a fitting to allow me to connect a 3/8" pt nipple into my new gas fireplace valve. The valve had a 3/8" male flare fitting. No joy at Lowes, the guy there (who did seem knowledgeable) just didn't have a part with a female flare fitting.

At the plumbing outlet the guy behind the counter kindly pointed out that all I'd really need to do is unscrew the 3/8" flare fitting out from the valve and, uh, screw the nipple right in. Duh, did it and it's working great...

I thought that only worked on the cold-water line...?
