Bathroom Humor

this has nothing whatsoever to do with anything tv, movie or Lost, but I shall share anyhoo.

This story happened a couple of years ago, but my Dad brought it up today, so I thought it would be funny to share.

I was getting ready for work one lazy Friday morning. I went into the bathroom to, well, you know, and brush my teeth and stuff and when I went to open the door it wouldn't.

I hadn't locked it (in fact, I don't think anyone ever locks it). But it would not open. It just wouldn't.

Everyone was just getting up, so they heard my cries for help quite quickly.

Dad decides that we are going to have to take the doorknob off. We do. There is now a hole where the doorknob used to be. Still the door will not open - for no apparent reason.

At this point I am laughing almost helplessly. My sister is talking about how they can at least pass food through the hole and I have all the water I could need.

The only recourse is to take the door off its hinges. The hinges are, of course, on the INSIDE of the door. So pliers and screwdriver get passed through the hole to me.

Also of course, the hinges are painted closed. I must bang on them with the screwdriver and pliers for a while.

Eventually I pull the pins out. But the paint is still holding the door onto the hinges. I have to step into the shower so that Dad can pound the door down.

That was an interesting day.

Haha! I love this kind of stuff! Thank God people were home to save you! Don't feel too bad, I once panicked in a public bathroom because I couldn't pull the door open! I was banging on the door, freaking out when it pushed open...hahaha!

And from this tragedy came your enigmatic former icon, right? (PS: My verification word is 'nomboof' -- which I'm pretty sure I said last time I ate a PB&J sandwich.)

Why, yes, in fact that was where my first icon came from. When I was setting up my account it was the only picture of me on the computer where I was working and I rather liked the fact that it was me and yet not me. Maybe I need to go find it again......

LOL @ nomboof.

I'm always thinking random comments about my verification words. Glad I'm not the only one :D

Blam said...

Is it weird to comment only because I see what the verification word will be? This time it's "ulked", as in, "Gor blimey! That Banner chap 'ulked right out of 'is bloomin' jacket!"

I forget what my original comment was going to be (I tried commenting like, five days ago, but the computer at work doesn't let me comment) But I do know that know I will ALWAYS think about the funky word.

Like Maninta. That's a kinda of icecream, right?

"Oi! Sumthin' turned that maninta the incredible 'ulk!" (The cockney accent wasn't necessary, but it tied in well with my last post.)
