  • O.T. One of those days.

    Doing my annual chimney clean and one of the screw together rods broke down the hole, took awhile to fish it out.
    Had to pull my electric septic pump out , acting up. As I got the pump and 15' of ABS pipe out it dribbled sewage down my neck. Nice.
    Hopefully tomorrow brings better luck.

          I don't know why, but that reminded me of the guy that got shat to death by an elephant. You had a much better day than he did.

            Yeah I saw that keeper doing an impression of a suppository, apparently he’d been particularly mean to the elephant, at least what the reporter said, what a way to go, new sport elephant spelunking,
            I sympathise with bad days (not that bad!), especially where toilets are concerned, nasty

              Well you know what they say, a good plumber can snake a sewer with one hand and hold his sandwich with the other.

                  It could always be worse. I know it sux but it helps to remember that.

                    My neighbor almost did. He rented a bobcat to level some dirt in his yard, then backed it over the septic tank which promptly caved in. It took the rest of the day to get it out, and then the real work began.

                      Reminds me of the unsolved case of Septic Sam near Tofield , close to me.

                        While helping my friend move in to his house, I found the old, unused, septic tank with the right rear wheel of my big ol' 4X4 Ford. In the winter. At night. With open headers, I powered the old girl out, roaring away in granny gear. The neighbors were not impressed.

                          I remember the time at boy scout camp when I was about 15 or so, they dared me to drop this bowling-ball sized rock in the outhouse. Yep, it splashed. I was madder than a wet NCF, and came out fists swinging.... and they all started telling me me how a boy scout is supposed to behave.

                            I do appreciate your day. Not because it was so chitty. Only because it made my lil repair seem odorless. Thanks... JR

                              Having spent 16 years building and starting up waste treatment plants, I’ve been soaked in sewage at plants with no bathrooms more times than I can count. In the age of a pandemic I am hoping it made my immune system bullet proof. I’m not testing it, N95 all day every day, surrounded by non-believers.
