Blocked Toilet

Image used under a Collective Commons License from: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Toilet-llqq-001.jpgI went to use our toilet the other day, and was surprised to find that it was blocked.

When I say “blocked”, I mean nothing was shifting, despite a number of attempts to unblock it using a plunger. No matter what I tried, the toilet just remained totally blocked.

Frustrated, and with no other options, I had to dismantle the entire fixture, which was no small feat for a non- plumber like me.

Jammed inside the drain I found a purple rubber dinosaur, which belonged to my five-year-old son.

I painstakingly got all the toilet parts together again, the tank filled, and I flushed it. However, to my surprise it didn’t work much better than before!

As I pondered what to do next, my son walked into the bathroom.

I pointed to the purple dinosaur I had just dislodged and told him that the toilet still wasn’t working.

“Did you get the green one, too?” he asked.
