    Where do you all keep your toilet plunger? I've decided there really is no appropriate place for it, but it's something you should have around...just in case.

    Ha ha, what a funny (but real) question!! I have the same problem!! In the guest bathroom on the first floor I keep it in the cabinet under the sink. Since there is nothing else in there I am not concerned with it touching anything...
    And on the second floor I have two bathrooms so I keep it in the hall/towel/linen closet on the floor...I am fortunate to have the extra space, I am not sure where I would keep the thing if not...probably behind the toilet!

    Sounds and smells like a Mikeyski's special to me. My plunger is delicately stored on the bottom of the built in closet in the bathroom, with a plastic bag enclosing the head.

    If its not in arms reach of the toilet, there's no use having one. You have about 4 seconds to use it in an emergency. Also, train the kids in the art of plunging, as they will be the ones who cause the emergency.

    Me too. Gotta be within reaching distance.

    Holy cow! What are you all doing in the bathroom? Wait, don't answer that. (Give a courtesy flush, will ya?)

    My plunger is out in the garage with the business end in a double plastic bag.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    Is that something important?

    I keep mine next to my son's toilet; but I've had less need of it since I told the fat kid next door to go home if he needs to take a dump. Sorry, true story.

    eewwwww, that's the bathroom you make me use.

    I got a note from ZG. It seems that she may have broken her nose during a wrasslin' match with her son. I'll try to file a full report tomorrow night. Oh, and I'll bring my camera to record and post the results, too. This could be interesting.

    At work, our toliets always clog up so we have to keep toliet plungers right next to the toliet. Fun experience at work especially in heels and a skirt on Board day.

    Since the topic is Toilet plungers... I must say that I don't need one. I have a good yet low consuming toilet, that with little water flushes very well. On the other hand my shower does need a plunger.... must be all the hair that goes down the drain that clogs it...


    On a completely different topic... I was out most of the week because there was a Geography Congress here so I was most of the week going to different expositions and presentations, besides that I had a test on wednesday.... You guys missed me right?

    I don't even OWN a plunger.

    1. Is there something about american toilets that makes them a nessessity?
    2. Is my toilet going to block up during the night if i dont rush out and buy one pronto?
    3. Is it the kind of thing everyone has, and thus I probably own without thinking about it? Like colanders. And hammers. And bathroom sink plugs.
    4. If I've not needed one yet, am I ever?
