So for the interested the above is the incident I have been referring to. Our toilet became completely blocked as Thursday and due to us having had recently had work carried out on the drain we got the same company out to sort it. The emergency plumber didn’t quite grasp the situation and did not turn up until 5 pm Friday, when he did he tried everything I had already done.
I remained calm. Even when he put the toilet in the bath, I was calm – after all he was going to put it back right? However when he said he was going to place a jet wash into the soil pipe, the pipe we had proved was already full of water, and I could just claim back for a new ceiling (a ceiling that had only gone back up that day) that I got annoyed.
Words were exchanged. And my toilet was left in my bath.
It’s back in the right place now.
I was going to be witty but to be honest I still can’t see the funny side on this one, it took four days to get a toilet working again, time during which we’ve been living off the goodwill of friends and family. Though it is now fixed the bathroom still needs to be cleaned – a job the insurance company is not doing – we are…well not we but G – I’m on another continent.
