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????

Have you a Canadian student there Nan?  Seriously, they do that a lot here, especially the ones at the beach in public washrooms.  Somewhere is a potty pile I tell you. Oh I am glad at least one thing hasn't changed in all these years, the dare!

Perhaps they are being imported to trailer parks in the south?

I've seen them used as planters there.

Perhaps somebody used one of those very very harsh toilet cleaners and it just "bubbled" away with that last flush? I had this friend who's brother got a goat...the damn goat ate everything in site....ate upholstery off of chairs, ate carpet, ate homework, ate bills and checks and anything it could reach....my buddy hated the thing....One day after everyone had gone out...he took the goat to a farmer and gave it to him....When his brother got home, he said..Toe...uh, um..I mean Joe,?..where's the goat?...I...um, I mean my friend, told him...well, the SOB started eating his tail and ate himself up...

Anyone ask Nightshade/Chris if she had it?  She just got a trailer out of town by a lake, and is officially white trailer trash so she said.  I understand from Karen this type of person uses toilets as planters, and they actually bury bathtubs into the ground for plants as well.  

Nan, just be thankful the bathtub is still there.  Oh and by the way, I forgot to mention they actually steal the sinks too at Ambleside beach, like what is that about?  I never saw one sink planter in my life.
