Do you know how bad it is to break a toilet when you have 5 children, and the only other available toilet isn’t really available because it’s attached to the room where your husband sleeps all day?
So not cool.
And how does one actually break a toilet? Well, it’s been giving us some trouble for a few weeks now. The handle was really hard to push down. It flushed, but half the time I would have to go in after the kids and flush it for them. That’s what happened today. Jace went to the bathroom, and then I went in to flush. When I pushed the handle down, it fell off. The plastic piece that supports it snapped right in half.
I am not a plumber, so I don’t know if this is a costly mistake or not. I may need to call a Los Angeles plumber like Jack Stephan to see if I am royally screwed. Hubby hasn’t gotten up yet today, and he’s unaware of the toilet fiasco. We had to run errands today, so at least the kids had public toilets (ick!) to use.
I cannot believe this happened. This house is crap. Everything is already falling apart, and we’ve lived here for a year and a half. Shoddy workmanship and cheap crap went into the making of this house, I’m convinced.
Anywho – that’s the excitement around here today. And, Sabrina, if you’re reading this, we may be driving to your house to go potty if hubby doesn’t wake up soon!
