My children have a problem with flushing the toilets in this house. Short of installing video surveillance in the bathrooms, I'm not sure I can pinpoint who the real culprit is. Might be all three, or it might only be one. No one ever claims responsibility for the unflushed gifts left behind.
They figured out a long time ago that because there are three of them, Mom and Dad are never 100% sure who the guilty party is unless someone
My children also have an apparent phobia when it comes to changing the toilet paper roll. Again, short of installing a camera in the bathroom there's not a lot I can do about this.
I'd consider the spy cam, but I'm pretty sure the Department of Health & Humans Services frowns on that kind of thing from parents.
The other morning, I noticed the toilet paper roll was empty (again), so I grabbed a fresh roll. This is also when I noticed yet another "gift" waiting in the toilet bowl. I pushed the handle down just before I unhooked the spring-loaded tissue tube to make the switch.
That's when one half of the tube jumped out of my hand (definitely spring-loaded), bounced OFF the toilet seat and onto the floor.
How it missed landing in the toilet bowl, I'll never know.
If it had landed in the bowl, chances are good it would have been sucked down the drain since I'd just flushed.
And if it had gone down the drain, chances are even better that it would have become lodged somewhere along the line and THAT would lead to an expensive plumbing bill.
(Unless, of course, I had enough presence of mind to reach into the contaminated bowl and retrieve the part before it was forced down the drain...say it with me: ewwwwww)
So, it's official.
There IS a God, and he LOVES me because that one little piece landed on the floor and I didn't have to go diving in after it....and subsequently sanitize my hand for the next 3 hours.
