Drano

Drano is either a brand name or a generic term for liquid drain cleaning products. It’s basically a liquid plumber. You pour it down a clogged drain or a backed up sink, wait fifteen minutes to a half hour, and flush it out with hot water. Drano eats through hair, grease and gets rid of the clog. It just might take a little bit of time and more than one bottle. Drano is kind of like a drug. You use it once and it kind of works, but then the clog comes back so then you need to get more Drano. And the clog goes away for a little bit, and then comes back worse than before, so you get two bottles of Drano. And the clog will come roaring back, so you get even more bottles of Drano. It stops working but you can’t stop using it. It’s designed to get you hooked on it. You end up a Drano user for life.

Clogged Shower Drain

A clogged shower drain is a terrible way to start the day. I woke up, shuffled down the hall to the bathroom, turned on the shower and started brushing my teeth while the water warmed up, which is my usual morning routine. I finished brushing, then stepped into the shower and instantly knew that something was wrong. It was like splashing into a puddle. The drain was clogged and the water level was rising. It’s a shower/bathtub combo so there was no danger of overflowing, but it was still quite disheartening. I wanted a shower, not a bath. I turned off the water and busted out the plunger. You know you’re going to have a shitty day when you’re using a plunger before you’ve even had a cup of coffee. After fucking around with the plunger for a while, I realized that it wasn’t doing much. In fact, it wasn’t doing anything. I ended up delaying my shower so I could slap on some deodorant and run to the store to buy some Drano. Then I had to pour the Drano down the drain and wait for another half hour while it did its thing. All in all, it took me almost 90 minutes to take a fucking shower. The things we do for hygiene.
