Yesterday's project

Project: repair toilet. I assume someone has tried to flush something that wouldn't go down. I'm an expert at this cause this is the 3rd time I've had to do this. So I pull the toilet out and take it outside. Turning it on it's side I notice a little ball with an attached rubber band dangling from under it, I'm thinking "what the crap". Pulling on the band I notice it's still attached to something else. Pulling harder only breaks it. Now I'm on my hands & knees looking up the poop chute and I find what it was attached to........... a paddle! I reach inside to dislodge it, once again thinking "WHAT THE CRAP!" because that's what was behind the paddle! Cleaned & reinstalled toilet. Grandkids......you gotta love'em. (do you?...lol)

Oldmanbrute I know exactly what u mean. I have a 2 year old he threw a toy in the toilet & flushed it & it got stuck. Luckily it was small enough to let the poo go by. I still had to remove toilet & fish it out from bottom. Kids u gotta love em.

No... I have a large toilet...J/K! Paddle was bout 2" wide. Looks like I'm not the only one who has had the experience of toilet fishing! So far I've caught a toothbrush, nail clippers, one of those flushable things (that don't flush!), and now a paddle-ball to add to my collection.
