That's OK Dear, it only cost $1,000

Postby knapplc » Mon Dec 11, 2006 1:30 pm

So yesterday afternoon I'm doing my homework for a class I'm in and the wife comes up all agitated. She says she just flushed her wedding ring down the toilet and she’s all upset. HOW did you do that, I ask. She had just stood up after finishing her business and was taking the ring off to put in the dish she keeps it in overnight when it popped off and flew right in – and went right down. Sheer fluke of all flukes.

Lucky for her/us that she was in the upstairs bathroom, since the downward flow of the pipe isn’t too great until you get to the actual sewer down-pipe. I took out the trap (and it smelled lovely, let me tell you) and blocked the pipe with a slotted spoon from the kitchen that I’m going to have to burn, and had her flush the commode two more times. On the second flush I could hear the thing bouncing around and then PLONK!!! it dropped into the bucket.

Had she done it in the downstairs bathroom the thing would be gone right now. Granted, as wedding rings go it wasn’t very expensive at $1,000, but I’d rather not replace the thing if I can help it.

Thats funny I thought it was a congratz thread too. :-b

I've noticed my girl has made a habit out of putting her rings on the counter next to the sink and near the toilet. What the hell is it with women wanting to keep expensive things in a room that can eat them. :-?

I need to forward these on to her. Sadly, I have yet to be "rewarded" for playing the hero.

Yes, I thought about that as well. Quite ironic, but not in a good way.

But at least we got it back. That's the big thing. ;-D
