Poor man's fountains! Read with caution!!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Strange day at work,, was just getting into the swing of things when I went to the ladies room. Just as I was prepared to sit down(I know, not delicate), WHOOSH!!!!!!!
This huge ball of water and RAW sewage came shooting out of the stool!!! Both stools actually, then both sinks!!!!
Now, most people would run screaming out of the room, BUT not those who take lasix twice a day!! I just stood there, trying to figure out how I was still going to take care of business, so to speak.. but finally the sights and sounds, and mainly, SMELLS, got to me and I retreated out of the room and got the boss to go in and watch the water show. It was a poor man's Bellagio` fountain!!!!! Kind of synchronized too, actually. One stool would blow up to the ceiling, then the other, then the sinks..
but I digress..
I went to the men's rest room and it put the ladies room to shame!! Two stalls, two urinals , two sinks!!! It was almost too much entertainment for even me!!

Turns out, the city decided to work on the MAIN SEWER LINE without informing anybody..
Lock the doors, sanitize everything with bleach, close down business for half the day. Lovely...

BTW, I was SECONDS from getting a nasty , unwanted enema!!!!!
It's always something,, either you're untangling printer paper or you're the victim of a sewage conspiracy and wiping doo off everything,,
You can't BUY that kind of excitement folks, at any price,, even in VEGAS!

    I know that to you, this was not even close to funny! On the other hand your rendition of this tale was quite amusing to me! I am sorry that you had to face the mess but thanks for sharing your experience, anyway! You are right you can't buy that kind of amusement anywhere it just happens!
