A Scranton woman who allegedly shouted profanities at her overflowing toilet within earshot of a neighbour was cited for disorderly conduct, authorities said. Dawn Herb could face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $300. UNREAL!!!!!

You cant even swear in your own house anymore ;D

Funny story, but this was OTT:

"Her next-door neighbour, a city police officer who was off-duty at the time, asked her to keep it down, police said. When she continued, the officer called police."

What a lazy bastard! If she was disturbing me that much, I would have arrested her myself.

Here's some tips for anyone that has an plugged or overflowing toilet:

1) If it's plugged up, DON'T flush it again. If the water can't escape the bottom, it will overflow the rim. Plunge it before flushing a second time.

2) Pull off the lid and push down the flapper or dump valve assembly (the thing your toilet handle connects to). That'll keep more water from flowing into the toilet bowl.

3) If the fill valve is stuck open, lift up on the float arm. If that doesn't work, cut off the water by turning the water line shut off valve clockwise.

A little info might save you from a flooded bathroom... or a ticket for obscenity.  :D

For those of you with toilet overflow problems:

Stay away from laxatives and high-fiber products.

And don't use half a roll of 26-ply TP to wipe.  ;D

this is funny, and luckily for her, the ACLU is concerned. It's really not all her fault. If the toilet wasn't broke, she wouldn't have been such a "potty mouth"  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/06/kloguck.gif

I should get my daughter to read this post.  Twice in the past month she has blocked the toilet and the last time she tried flushing it again and then the valve stuck so the water just kept going in.  By the time she told me what had happened there was water everywhere.  It dripped through into the basement as well.

No, she's only 8!

American toilets seem unable to cope with the amount of toilet paper she uses

Used to have a friend, who clogged the commode every time he commenced #2.

He earned the nickname, "Toilet Choker".

On a somewhat related topic.

I was walking along one day and was struck with a sudden urge to evacuate the lower half of my body. The only nearby store was a McDonalds so I wandered in, went in to a stall and proceeded to do an impersonation of Krakatoa. Anyhow, I flushed.. and of course.. uh oh!.. here it all came back. I quietly closed the door.. safe in the knowledge that I'd managed to cost McDonalds at least $100 to fix that mess.  ;D

Ever toilet is different, I'm a master at controlling my own toilet but if I went to someone else's house, I might not know the subtle things to do to get the crap down!

Whenever I use a public toilet, I never care how much paper I use because it's free :D

I once clogged a urinal ... the stupid urinal cake was right in the hole where the water goes down, and when I flushed, the flush lasted so long that the water overflowed.  I screamed a bunch of swears because I thought that someone was gonna walk in and blame me for the mess.

LOL! But, I doubt you managed to cost McDonalds more than some poor employee to quit his job after cleaning up your eruption. Go Team Toilet Clog!

Oh wow, that is not good. Yeah, she needs to become Mrs. Plumber, pronto.

There are cheap and easy ways to make those crappy water saver toilets (which are in 90% of homes now) flush much better. Send me a PM if you are interested.

The worst thing I ever heard of happening to a toilet was a bad clog, so a plumber was called. The plumber was unaware that, on the other side of the bathroom, there was another toilet which connected to the stopped up one with a common drain line. He plunged it, he snaked it - no luck. Then he hooked up an air line and blew it out. He blew it out alright, but not down the drain - through the toilet on the other side. Feces and toilet paper were hurled to the ceiling, where they stuck, and everything in the room was coated with a fine brown mist. I'm not sure how he cleaned it up.

What I'm saying Marian is that your implication is that I don't know how to feed my children properly! Don't you think that's a bit insulting?
