I’m going to let you in on a secret. I’m in a crappy mood today. I know I should try to conquer it. Don’t succumb to negativity. But sometimes a day just doesn’t go according to plan. This weekend I learned a valuable lesson. The pipe connected to my toilet is a shared pipe. When a neighbor stuffs something down the toilet it clogs all of our toilets. This happened Saturday morning. The landlord came over yesterday, but couldn’t fix it. He said someone would arrive Monday morning.
At 6:45am that person arrived. Not kidding. At 6:45am I tried to sound coherent and polite. Turns out he had to open the pipes outside but it was too dark so he had to come back. Yeah, I could have told him that and I was half asleep. The guy came back. I did my best to help by pouring buckets of cold water down the toilet.
As it turned out, the job was a little tougher than anticipated. Not what I wanted to hear considering I had been living without a toilet for two days. I probably should mention we only have one in the flat. He may have to come back tomorrow—probably at 6:45am. Yippie!
