Cape Cod Massachusetts USA
Got a bizarre true story to tell us? I happened upon one today, and I can't resist sharing it...
Here's the scoop - Someone stole the toilet!!! Would you believe?
About two weeks ago, our male students coming back from their bathroom breaks reported to staff that the toilet was missing from the boys' room...
That was odd, but we assured them that the urinal on the wall would suffice until the building management could replace the broken commode which they had obviously removed for repairs. Some of our kindergartners didn't agree, though. They said something about being unable to reach? We dutifully began escorting the little guys to the upstairs bathrooms while we awaited the downstairs john's replacement to arrive.
Meanwhile, we lodged a good-natured inquiry/complaint to Jim, the building maintenance engineer (aka custodian), including a request to lower the paper towel dispensers for the kids. Jim assured us that he'd see what he could find out, as he had no idea what had precipitated this mysterious disappearance from the boys' room.
Today - Jim came into our classroom smirking... Actually - I think it was more of a chortle I saw. He had asked the management when they would be replacing the missing toilet, and they had NO IDEA that it wasn't where it belonged. They hadn't authorized its removal at all. They too were astounded. SOMEONE HAD REALLY STOLEN THE BOYS' TOILET!!!
Mind you, whoever pulled off this clever caper had to have had a key to get into the bathroom. They also had to have a key to get into the building in the first place, so that they could pilfer the potty at a time when it wouldn't be too obvious.
All we know is that somewhere - There's a fifteen year-old used (probably dirty) public toilet that's been sequestered to some secluded and private new bathroom - somewhere in the vicinity of Upper Cape Cod. If anyone hears of a sighting, please let us know... We'll even accept anonymous tips if you'd rather not divulge your identity. Meanwhile - My staff and I are snigglin' out loud!!!
WHERE'S THE POOP, PiPpers????
