Toilet Humor

We were having problems with a leaky toilet.
Now, Tom can fix anything
Not always exactly the way you would want it fixed
but it will either work or be so torn up that you dont' have to worry about it anymore.
He comes in with another toilet.
He tightens it too far and it cracks.
Lesser men night have cussed and fussed
Not my Tom
He gets another beer
AND another toilet
problems again
not to worry
He comes back with yet ANOTHER toilet.
By this time
I have to ask
"Where the hell are you getting all these toilets?"
(It is important to note that I only asked after the third toilet)
Turns out there is this bar in Mobile
the place to go if you are young and/or hip
called The Soul Kitchen
semi-famous people play there
like Paulo Nutini
Drive By Truckers
Corey Smith
but I digress
this bar had recently moved
and is owned by Tom's boss's son
He apparently neglected to take his toilets with him.
So
my toilet probably has some tales to tell....
 It's also a handicapped toilet
so everyones feet dangle into space..
Never a dull moment!

Hopefully one of the toilets did the trick. Doc isn't handy, that would be me. Unless of course it was a guitar then he could probably build that from scatch. Musicians tend to be one trick ponies. (Hugs) indigo

What a guy your Tom is.... so calm and cool, even facing the dilemma of repairing a leaky toilet ... my own guy wouldn't have been so calm... even if there were three toilets available. You all are too funny! bea

Oh Jeez!  That is funny, but at least Tom's creative.  De ;)

    Nothing like sitting on a throne when you need to. I give Tom credit for attempting such a feat. In my house, it would continue to leak. No one here would attempt to find out how to fix it.
