I stood there a little amazed and thought, "What a woman!" Then I began to think about my experience. If I go into a stall and the toilet needs flushing, I flush it. If it doesn't work, I got to another stall. I don't think it ever occurred to me to try to fix it.
The more I thought about it, I don't think there are that many places that have a toilet tank. It usually is a motion sensor - triggered toilet that flushes. But some places, like Starbucks, I have recently seen toilet tanks.
Pam started out doing a little survey and texted some ladies/girls on the subject asking if they had ever repaired a public toilet? (I will not use their names below, but here are some of their responses):
- "Ugh - that is so funny you asked that! But yes - I remember one time I fixed the toilet at church."
- "Yes I have, but I am always afraid I will drop the toilet tank lid and break it and make things worse!"
- "Yes" - not a real long answer there.
- "Heck No! With all that poop in that water? (Pam pointed out the toilet tank isn't the business end of the operation....)
- "Two answers. If I am having PMS, I would take a hammer to it! If not, I'd try to fix it."
- "Why do you want to know?" (Pam said she was just doing a survey...) Then the answer came back, "No!"
- "No." (As in no way.)
Preliminary conclusions: All those with children said 'Yes'. Those without children said 'No'.
Which brings me to my own survey: Ladies, what would you do? Or have you done? in that situation?
I feel fairly safe in saying, I think this is probably the first survey of its kind taken among RV enthusiasts and their blog readers?
That's all for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles! Really looking forward to hearing from you on this one.
