I think certain people see me like this.After a recent experience with a carpet cleaning guy, I even lived up to the gullible title. But I’m changing my ways.
Since getting our new working toilets in November, my toddler has upped his flushing game. Dax grabs anything he can find and tries to make it disappear into the depths of the alluring magical bowl. He finally won the game! Our hallway toilet was irreparably clogged.
My husband used a toilet snake and attempted to be the hero. No luck.
He called a plumber.
It was another one of those great deals, only $40! For that $40 the plumber spent a grand total of about five minutes in my bathroom.
It’s flushing again.
Really!?! Can I see?
I saw the flush. It was a half flush and made a sad sounding gurgle at the end.
I think there’s still something in there.
Well, it seems to be flushing now. The only other thing I can do is remove the toilet.
How much will that cost?
I almost gave in to the gullibility! I wanted a completely healthy toilet and he was offering me a solution! But I held strong and said a sad farewell to the plumber.
The toilet was completely clogged, again, the next morning.
In desperation, I used the plumbing snake myself.
On my first attempt I caught something!
Apparently I have missed my intended profession.
So, my Good News! My toilet is healed! And I didn’t have to pay $180.
