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.

Pissing On the Plunger

I’ve pissed on hundreds of plungers in my lifetime. Almost everyone I know has a toilet and a plunger to go with it. And everyone seems to keep the plunger right next to the toilet. It seems logical and convenient but it’s not. It’s a terrible place to keep because I’m going to pee on it. It’s like a lightening rod for my urinary stream. I probably won’t do it on purpose, but it’s going to happen one way or another. I’m a guy, that’s what we do. We piss all over the toilet seat and whatever else is in the vicinity and that includes the plunger. Yeah, we have built-in fire hoses but it’s hard to pee through morning wood or aim when we’re drunk. Pissing on the plunger isn’t something I’m proud of but I’m not ashamed to admit it either.
