      Friends’ kid has plugged our toilets twice and he is back for more…

      We have friends who live down the street from us. We enjoy their company and they have two boys similar in age to ours. The problem is when their kid uses our toilets.

      Since owning our house for 10 years, our family has plugged the toilets exactly zero times. Their oldest son is 8 years old, has plugged our toilets twice - one time in two different toilets. The first time we had to plunge away for a good 30 minutes. The second time there was a mound of toilet paper we had to scoop out.

      Today, they are over and he asked to use the bathroom. I was cringing while I gave him permission. He is still in there as I type this and I nervously await the horrors to come.

      At least my wife no longer questions the expense of a porta-potty rental during our annual 4th of July party lol

      Did his sister steal your wife's phone?
      Typical forum guy with busted third-hand cars.

      Crisis averted...this time. Toilet flushes as it should. I will gladly accept him leaving the lights on in the bathroom for a fully functioning commode any day.

      Seriously!? I wonder if they are accustomed to using single-ply toilet paper or something?

      I do drain cleaning. That cost you $180 to clean out each time.

      Lol We had the same problem with my sister growing up(nieces mother). They are both probably the most dense people in the world. Smart as a whip in school but no common sense.

      I remember as a kid yelling up to my sister and telling her she had a phone call. Instead of yelling down the stairs or just saying through the phone reciever that "she got it" she would yell into the phone

      Move all the TP out of the bathroom except for a 1/4 of a roll. Problem solved.

      My wife is the only person alive who clogs the toilet after a pee.

      One of our friend's kids is currently fascinated with toilet paper. The last time they were here, she went into our bathroom and took the roll off the holder and dropped it in the toilet.

      That's it. She's still in diapers, just likes to walk into bathrooms and drop the roll in the water.

      Reminds me of my nephew when he was 3 to 4 years old...he used flush little toys down the toilet often back then. Good thing my brother-n-law is a plumber!

      Not sure if they actually use it... or just wipe it all over the sink.
