WIGSF and the Exploding Toilet

September 13, 2012

It was just another day at the office. I got up from my desk to go take a
leak. I stood in front of the toilet, lifted the seat and dropped trow. I
did my thing. Dropped the seat and pulled up my pants and hit the flush
knob.

As I finished washing my hands and throwing the wadded up paper
towel into the trash bin, I noticed the “running” sound coming from the
toilet tank.

“Maybe the flapper didn’t come back down properly,” I
thought to myself. A second flush usually solves that problem so I flushed
the toilet again.

A minute later, I noticed the toilet was still
running.

Without much thought, I picked up the tank lid…

UP
THE WALL, DOWN THE FLOOR, AT THE CEILING, ON THE FLOOR, IN MY FACE! Water
erupted from the tank, spraying everywhere.

I quickly put the tank lid
back down on the tank and stuck my hand beneath the toilet for the shut off
valve.

Crisis averted, but for how long… Where will I shit tomorrow
morning?

    Good job it was only water!

    You’re asking the important questions that needed to be asked. Or you could say, call a plumber.

    Hey, at least you didn’t pee on the floor. Was it clean water?

    Toilet water in the face — even when it’s clean — just isn’t that much fun. Where will you poo? The game is afoot!…or abut!

    Oh my gosh! That’s a big “uh-oh!” I hope your boss called the plumber right away! And I’m glad you weren’t hurt in the making of this episode.

    Ha! Oh man, poor you. I can’t imagine a worse first-world problem than being soaked by a geyser of toilet water. I mean, even though it was from the tank, and was therefore technically clean, it still had toilet cooties!

    Toilets have a shut off valve???

    Yes. It’s that knob between the toilet and the wall/floor
