Taking the Plunge

A fellow Creative Memories consultant went to teach a class in a woman’s home. Hot day, lots of people, no air conditioning in the home.

At the end of the class, the consultant needed to use the restroom. She goes down the hall to the bathroom, does her thing, and as she’s washing her hands she notices that the toilet is starting to back up. Not knowing how to turn off the water to the toilet, she starts to panic as the water rises closer to the rim. She sees the offending wad of toilet paper and looks around for a plunger. Nothing. The water is still rising. She’s sweating bullets from the heat and embarrassment as the water has reached the edge of the bowl and is slowly overflowing.

So she does the only thing she can think of to do. She removes her wristwatch and gold bracelets. She pulls up her sleeves and drops to her knees. Then she plunges her arm into the toilet and pulls out the wad of toilet paper. But the water is still rising! She runs down the hall to notify the hostess who is chatting with her guests. She takes her aside and explains there’s a waterfall going on in her bathroom. The hostess laughs and says, “Oh, that happens all the time!” and goes on chatting with her guests.

Gross!
If it happens all the time then she should have had a plunger in the bathroom.
That poor consultant.
