Hey everyone wanted to come through and share a funny situation that happened to me today.After having dinner I got comfortable on my couch to watch a movie mid way through the movie I had to use the bathroom just to pee.After flushing my toilet it would not stop running water and would not flush properly lol this was the last thing I needed my toilet acting up lol.So I decided to see if I could fix it myself to get it to work again all my attempts were lost.I was praying while I was fixing it I would not have the sudden urge to go number two, I would have to end up calling my landlord to come fix it.I ended up calling him after my failed attempts of trying to fix it he was coming all the way from another city.After getting off the phone with him lol I had the sudden urge to go number one and two!!!!!!! but I could not go casue my landlord was on the way to fix my toilet that cant flush lol and I could not go cause I would not be able to flush.In no way could I use the bathroom, thinking back this is so funny to me now thank God I had my bike, lol I was starting to really need to relieve myself.I called my landlord and said that I would not be here to let him in that I had to go out for a bit and that he could let himself in.Lol I got on my bike and rode it like I was being chased by a pack of wolves lol thank God for my mother I knew she was home I rode my bike so fast over to her house.The whole way I was praying that I would make it lol and as you know I have the urgency issue so I needed to get there fast having to go number one and two without a working toilet is my worst nightmare come to life lol.I made it over to my mother's just in time she just lives thirty minutes away but I made it over there in ten the way I was speeding lol.I was able to do what I needed to do, and prayed that my landlord was able to fix my toilet and he was.It would suck not having a working toilet for awhile what would I do? now I'm back home with a working toilet again oh Lord that was the last thing I needed happening lol.I hope my toilet holds up for me for as much as I use it lol but that was how my day went lol I was able to watch and the rest of my movie.Lol something like this would only happen to me lol that is the kind of luck I have lol but anyways just wanted to share that with you all your probably laughing right now just like me lol as always wishing you all good stomach and digestive health. :-)

Maybe you need to keep a camper potty on hand. Just kidding. Sounds like a terrible experience.

jt! After reading all you went thru just to use the bathroom, I am about to need one myself. I can just picture that entire scene too. Many of us can I'm sure. I think I would have a back up plan also, something to think about (maybe a simple camping toilet, with disposable bags).

Back in Feb. we had to shut our water off because a rear water faucet kept dripping and was cracked inside. We didn't want the water to pool inside and freeze, leaking into the drywall. Hubby tried to find the part to fix it but each time he'd buy another it would be 1/2 inch too short or too long. And the plumbing parts store of course was not right up the street but 30 minutes away. He could turn on the main water valve long enough for everyone to use a bathroom and to wash dishes. Then 15 min. later it was back off. I lived that way for over 36 hours! I was barely eating. We finally had to call a plumber. He fixed it in about 30 minutes. The entire time I was praying I wouldn't have a bm because I kept driving up to our local Target. And I'm sure I'm on their security camera each time - here comes this crazy lady, no shopping, only using the bathroom. LOL!

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!

I'm pretty sure this will be just a one time thing I just did not want to go use a public bathroom lol thank God for my mom's but if it came down to it and my mom was not home I'd have to use a public restroom.

Good thing she's not too far away.

Our Target was remodeled recently, installing brand new bathrooms. One is an individual family style. I've never used it but nice to know it's there if needed. What I like is they have these loud as airplane engines hand dryers. They are so loud and dry your hands in a few seconds. But no one else can hear anything if one of these dryers is in operation! You could be farting up a storm and no one would ever know! he he
