TMI Pit thread ahoy!
The toilet murdering trifecta (aka my three other roomates) have struck with extreme prejudice yesterday on the toilet that is our sole waste recepticle.
I do not know who Crapper Zero was in this situation, but suffice to say after coming home from a pleasant weekend with a friend, I find our toilet clogged. No problem, I think- I’ve clogged the toilet before myself, and never had a problem fixing it. However, after ten minutes of giving that toilet the beating of a lifetime with the plunger, it is pretty clear the clog is not going anywhere. Nobody is home at the time (including my landlord) and it is fairly late, so I put a post-it note on the toilet mentioning it is ‘out of order’. I figure I will attempt to unclog it again later (sometimes a clogged toilet isn’t 100% clogged; the water level goes down slowly and when it is low a combination of flushing and plunging can offer enough oomph to clear the clog).
A few hours later I come back in the bathroom for attempt number 2, pull up the lid and am presented with a lovecraftian horror that looks somewhat like a toilet bowl full of beef stew. Obviously someone in my house disregarded the note, and proceeded to shit into the clogged toilet. I close it, spritz the area with a little air freshener and drop a note in the landlord’s mailbox explaining that we need to get a plumber ASAP because our toilet is clogged. I also see one of my roomates and mention to her (all 3 are middle-aged women btw) that the toilet was out of order and I left a note. She sheepishly confesses that she didn’t notice the note until AFTER she was done using the facilities :smack:
The next day I go into the bathroom to take a shower and am alerted to an unpleasant smell. I look over and there is a shit stained towel (not mine, thank god) soaking in the sink. On the counter is a note-
“Incubus: Sorry, I didn’t realize the toilet was broken, and when I flushed it the thing overflowed and made a mess. I cleaned it up as best I could. PS- youre a big strong guy, do you think you could try unclogging it? the landlord hasn’t gotten aroudn to calling a plumber yet. Roomate #3” :mad:
TLDR Verstion: Roomate 1 clogged toilet, didn’t do anything about it. I repeatedly tried to unclog it with no sucess. In the meantime Roomate 2 and 3 each sucessively shat (and FLUSHED) clogged toilet totally ignorant of the fact that it was clogged.
I can’t wait to move.
