I go away for ONE weekend and what happens?

This weekend I went to Hardy, Arkansas for an awesome canoe trip with great friends (more about that later). While I was there, I got a text from Jake back home - "We've got a toilet problem." So, I'm thinking "ok - get the plunger and we'll be fine." I call him to find out that no plunger will fix this situation. Turns out the toilet broke in half. Right - in HALF. Jake said he leaned back on it and heard a "crack" and then "splash" as all the water in the tank spilled out onto the floor. Luckily we have great landlords (hi mom!) and they have put a call in. We should get a new toilet on Monday. Until then, we're running over to the other side of our duplex (which is empty - anyone looking to rent?) and using that fully functioning toilet.

I came home from the trip today and surveyed the damage:


This crack goes all the way around the tank, as witnessed below. It showed no signs of damage before this weekend but probably had a hairline crack somewhere.
All in all, it made for a good laugh and humorous story to tell the friends. But I did realize how much I really enjoy having an operable toilet in our house!

HILARIOUS!! Maybe your new toilet should be extra heavy duty to account for Jake's leaning....At least you didn't have water running down into your neighbors apt. :)
