show a little consideration
January 26, 2009
This is just outrageous. In my own home. I mean, sure, it’s not MY bathroom (not that this hasn’t ever happened in my bathroom, but it’s rare, and this pic is NOT of my bathroom. Let’s stay focused here).
But really? A member of MY family?
The “roll on the tube” is not quite as bad as leaving the roll bare with no backup in the room, but still. It’s just this side of egregious.
On a very marginally related note, that is the same bathroom I came home to Friday after work, to find my 13 year old with 4 of his friends, hovering around, looking anxious. One of them had apparently dropped a tennis shoe in the toilet. They had attempted plunging, which is really a first for my house, someone besides me plunging, but with no success. And considerable mess from the attempt.
It took me ten solid minutes of plunging, while they kibbitzed from the hallway, and several of Ian’s friends chanting “Put it on the blog, Put it on the blog.”
They wanted pics. I will spare you the pics. Suffice to say, I had to get the hazmat suit on to clean the bathroom afterward. Because, conveniently, one of the friend’s dad showed up just then to take the whole crew down the hill for more hanging out at a different venue.
Kim was THIS close to having him come in to survey the damage.
Now, THAT I would have posted pictures of.
