#7 of #365 – My Toilet is so Ghetto!


As if today hadn’t been bad enough – an unexpected full day at work instead of half a day, spilling most of my lunch soup into my lap, and getting home to find Daughter all fired up about a party she was going to throw (I said No to that – the last time she threw a party (New Year) I did all the clearing up plus Husband is doing a Grow Your Business Course which is intensive study) – I then went and sat on the toilet seat AND THE FUCKING THING SNAPPED. And pinched. Fuck did it pinch!

So I now have a broken loo seat and a bruise along my thigh that looks like the mark of a whip.

Honest to god. I am going to bed and tomorrow had better be better!

Oh – the duct tape is to remind people not to sit on it till a new one has been fitted. I tried sitting on the tape, it still moves uncomfortably underbum. Not a sensation one wants when one is weeing!

This is one of three toilets in our house – ground floor, toilet and washbasin, pictured above; family bathroom on the first floor, with toilet,basin, bath and shower, and a wonderful, wonderful en suite to our room on the second floor. Sometimes I have to buy loo rolls for all three at once – I get some odd looks then!

      Well, I woke up with a raging sore throat and an inability to talk in one register for more than three words at a time. As part of my job is phone-answering, I’ve elected to take a sickie.

      Sick= Bad
      Being at home = Good

      So I think, all in all, I am ahead in the good stakes, so far…

        I considered taking a sick day/month/year but decided I’d rather save them for another time. I manned up today and pushed work back to the retards generating it – so my day was difficult but not as bad as yesterday (but their Thurs is gonna suck).

        Fri is the Miss Kitty’s Finale and I plan to decompress, now that I remembered I not only have a hotel but also planned to leave the driving to taxis!

    I went out just yesterday and had to buy for the entire house. I swear, these kids use it to shine their shoes, wrap sandwiches in or something. A roll can disappear in a day. So I bought four cases of it and that should hold me until February. Sheesh, ought to invest in one of those paper shredder machines that makes roll paper…

    MiddleSon uses endless loo roll to blow his nose. I thought that would stop when he left his teens behind, but no. Why he can’t buy tissues like anyone else I don’t know… Actually, I do. Because the toilet paper comes out of his rent / contribution to the housekeeping, call it what you will; tissues he would buy himself!

    Yeah, with a wife and two girls under 6 (who are enamored with the concept of toilet paper but don’t know how to use the proper amount), we go through about a roll a day. Then there’s my niece, who is living with us and somehow uses a roll every other day just by herself. We’re buying a 24-pack of paper every couple weeks, it seems like!

    OH I CAN SO RELATE TO THAT!!!! Of course, the reason they break is because they’re made in Mexico. Or of course, China.

    I think we’ve been through about 5 in this house within the last 8 years.
