Ya know the saying “Be careful what you wish for”? In this case it is a GOOD thing!
Dan and I had a VERY nice surprise last night. One of our guests from Ft. Laramie, Ohio surprised us with ½ dozen HUGE ears of tri-colored sweet corn! As heavy as that bag is, it feels like a dozen ears! So, you know what WE are having for supper tonight! A big thanks for your thoughtfulness and genorosity to Deborah Groff and family! This is a real treat for Dan and me!
Yesterday morning, I made my bathhouse rounds about 6:00 a.m. When I got to the first stall in the women’s room the toilet seat was up and there was a massive wad of TP on the floor. When I got to the 2nd stall, the toilet seat was up, the toilet was FULL of TP, and there was TP strung all over that stall. I got my rubber gloves on so I could pull all that wet TP out of the toilet bowl, and managed to get the rest of it “unclung” from everything. Boy was I mad. I guess I should be glad the toilet DID flush OK.
THEN I discover a large puddle of water accumulating on the backside of the toilet on the floor and running all the way to the 3rd stall. As tight as Dan tightens things some how (hmmm, I wonder how?) the plumbing going into the toilet tank from the water line had come loose. It was not a good way to start the day. We had to shut the water off to the whole bathhouse to fix the problem. Fortunately no one (either men or women) was in a rush to take a shower or use the facilities.
In our restroom stalls are the type of TP holders that do NOT allow a person to easily unwind the TP. These holders are LOCKED. However, in two of the stalls in the women’s room, in addition to these two roll holder devices we also have one of the regular kind that you can unroll and THAT is what this person had used. In fact the TP from this holder was still strung, intact, into the toilet. I removed what was left of the roll of TP from these holders as well as the plastic roller that the TP goes on. I figured if anyone was rude enough to do the TP thing, I don’t think I would trust them not to try to flush the plastic rollers down the toilet. We KNOW in our hearts who it has to be but we can't prove it. See, I just can't imagine some Senior Citizen AARP bearing woman gleefully stuffing TP in the toilet, throwing it on the floor and placing it from pillar to post. No, I don't think that is the case....it has to be someon younger, but yet old enough to know "they done wrong".
Problems with “people” taking wet paper towels and throwing them on the ceiling or cramming them in the toilet and creating such a plug that we’ve had to flush the WHOLE septic system…those two problems are the reason we do not supply paper towels in the bathrooms any longer. The wet paper towels on the ceiling WILL remove the paint if you don’t see them until they have dried in place.
Do you suppose these things happen in their own home?? Remember what I said in a post a couple days ago about not talking about how to raise kids? Teaching courtesy, respect and common sense goes a LONG ways…and makes everyone happier.
