Toilet Humor ?


True story that I thought Y'all might like, even if it does show the Gomer side of me a lot.

A couple of weeks ago we were noticing water on the floor beside the toilet so I ran my hand up under the tank area and it was wet.  Deduction: there's a leak somewhere between the tank and the bowl .  WRONG - - - -sometimes it would be wet and sometimes it wouldn't so I took the lid off of the tank and got down real close so I could see.  Then I flushed it and instantly got a kisser full of water from the little tube that runs from the float assembly valve to the overflow tube.  After wiping my face off, I realized that the water would (SOMETIMES???) shoot directly toward the hole where the flush lever was (oh it had been stripped out by the original owners and was very loose so plenty of room for a stream of water to exit) and sometimes it would spray in that direction and sometimes it would not.

To the store: new flapper and flush lever - - - Problem solved

Disclaimer: after all I was only operating with one peeper

end of story

Danged terlits are a caution.  I have had more "what-the-???", and "ooopsie's" with them in my life than I can probably remember.  When I was a one legger, some twelve years ago, I was at home alone and had gotten into the bathroom with my walker and parked the walker by the sink, spun around on my good leg and reached for the edge of the counter to balance myself at the toilet; hand slipped and I grabbed the first thing I could which turned out to be the top of the toilet tank lid - water went everywhere.  Somehow I managed to get the water shut off without using my left leg, and called a plumber.  T'was a good thing we had two baths in the house - bath and a half, actually.  That little adventure cost me a new toilet, though, cracked the bowl on the old one when I wrenched that tank loose.

better the "thunder mug" than your leg - - - funny story but I imagine it wasn't a bit humorous at the time, eh disbelief

why is it that most Latrines have a funny story connected to them - - - remember this scene in "No Time Foer Sargents?"
