How to Know it’s Going to be a Crappy Day April 29, 2008

It’s 5:30 AM, and nature calls. However, as you enter the bathroom bleary-eyed, you note that the toilet is clogged. This is your first sign.

After a quick trip to another toilet to deal with the most immediate problem, you locate the plunger. Even in the stupor of less than 5 minutes of consciousness, you’re able to inspect the plunger and see the crack in the rubber that will render it completely useless. This is your second sign.

Not to worry, you have a “backup plunger” (a backup to deal with… uhm… backups). You grab the backup device, return to the scent of the crime, and begin plunging. Unfortunately, the backup device is slightly inferior in design to your primary plunger (which is why the other, now defective plunger, was the primary tool). As such, it turns itself inside-out periodically, and requires a bit of “toilet rim gymnastics” to get the rubber edge flipped right-side-out again.

And so you plunge away, and pause to pull and rotate the handle, flipping the business-end of the plunger back into the correct shape. But the final pull seems too easy, and that’s when you have the third and final sign that it will be a crappy day:

Tiffany,

Get your mind out of the gutter. :D

Gentiana,

Apparently it was a case of someone tossing a few too many “cookies” into the jar. Granted, “tossing cookies” isn’t exactly the correct euphemism here, but it will have to do. – Tim

P.S. I’m buying a new backup device on the way home from work.

After my plunging event this weekend at my house, I had a crappy day when it all backed up in my laundry room. Imagine a baby elephant blowing out his diaper. Yep, gross. After a plumber came yesterday, he discovered a blockage six feet out from my house, so probably not even my problem, but I suffered the consequences.

The moral of my story was don’t plunge, call a plumber. :)

All I can say is…cry me a river… ;)

It’s all about the potty paper

Rose,

I almost cried when I read this, but realized that neither of us needed more water in the house to drain away. :D

Mia,

That’s very true. The rather dramatic rate of paper use in that particular bathroom may be an indicator of what happened. Hmmm… – Tim
