Here is a snippit of a conversation I had with a coworker about 10 minutes before I left for the adventure which was the drive home. The setting is the hallway between our offices.
Laura: FYI-I just replaced the paperclip from the inside of the toilet that keeps it flushing.
Me: You mean that it is a paperclip that keeps our toilet, which is used by several women each day, working.
Laura: Yeah, you didn't know? It rusted and broke into the tank so I replaced it with a new one.
Then we broke out laughing because that is the kind of day it was. The next time we have a problem with one of the toilets at work I am not calling a plumber, but the office supplies store instead.
