Dumb Toilet

Can you guess what that is?
Well, when it rains, it pours... literally sometimes. Luckily, today's fiasco had nothing to do with rain, but there was water pouring all over the bathroom and down the hall.

The toilet was plugged and when I used my (worthless) plunger to fix it, I tried flushing it again... bad idea. It wouldn't stop!! I was so distracted by the toilet itself than when I turned to stomp out of the bathroom, I slammed into the wall when I slipped on the water in the hallway.

I audibly growled as I stomped to my cell phone and called my neighbor to beg for her plunger. She graciously offered to bring their shop vac, too. Then I headed to the garage to fetch the mop.

Well, so much for THAT idea.

So, several area rugs and towels later, with the aid of the shop vac, it's safe to walk down the hallway again. I'm still mad at the toilet... scared to flush it again, although it did manage a complete flush the last time I threatened it. Ugh.

te-he-he! Although the flooding toilet isn't very funny, an ice cube for a mop sure is! That has got to be one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time! I am so glad you shared that story. :) I hope you don't have any more problems with your naughty toilet.

Oh, my goodness, what a terrible event. I'm so afraid of that happening too. In our house the water pressure isn't all that good so we have to go fetch the plunger quite often. I hate it. It sounds like you have a great neighbor though.

I am glad that you did not fall!! I would petition for a new toilet. We finally had enough clogged toilets and got a new one, now now worries, I LOVE it. I am sorry, of course Fred was not at home during the incident.
