Clogging the toilet by mistake is no walk in the park. Even if it’s an easy plunging fix, it’s still not fun.
It can even get incredibly embarrassing if it happens at someone else’s house. What if the plunger doesn’t work? What if it overflows? The tension in these crucial moments could be cut with a knife. Man, oh man.
You’d think that we would learn from these moments not to test the integrity of the toilet. You wouldthinkthat we would have learned to treat the toilet with respect, and to not test it’s tempers.
Yet, we push those buttons every single day. Or, rather, we push on those flush levers.
These 11 times people flushed something that absolutely did not belong in the toilet should all be taken as a lesson: don’t flush objectsdown the toilet! All of these folks (or their parents) regretted thesedecisions in the end.
Have you ever flushed something down thetoilet that wasn’t supposed to be there?

“In high school, some football players stole a bunch of elemental calcium from the chemistry lab. After a few bouts of putting it in the sink, and watching it make hydrogen and heat up to boil water into steam, someone allegedly flushed a whole bunch down the toilet and everyone ran out of the locker room. A minute later, the football coach walks in and pulls a fire alarm thinking the place was on fire. When the fire department showed up, there was no smoke in the bathroom… for the rest of the year, the coach had an axe to grind trying to figure out how he got fooled, and who was behind it.” DumbCDA

“I have three boys and a few years ago, our downstairs toilet wouldn’t flush properly for a couple of weeks, so my dad explained to me how to pull the toilet off its base to see if a toy had been flushed down.
