Irritable flush

The handle/lever on my loo has been loose for a while now, and it doesn't always flush first time. Sometimes there's a bit of a knack to getting the thing to work. Frankly, I suspect it was badly assembled by the (no doubt cheap) plumber the landlord hired when the new bathroom was installed. He made a poor job of everything else so...

Anyway, the toilet packed up altogether late last night. No amount of jigger-pokery inside the cistern could get the damned thing to flush. Of course, a bucket of water poured into the pan does the job pretty well, but it's not ideal.

So I emailed the landlord last night, explaining the situation, and got a reply today. He says he's spoken to the plumber, and they'll be round Mon afternoon, if that's suitable.

So I emailed back, pointing out MY TOILET DOESN'T FLUSH. I didn't tell him I could flush is with a bucket of water, and he didn't suggest that, so as far as he knows.... I added that I know it's the weekend, and hence more expensive to get a plumber, but that I don't want to wait until Monday afternoon. I resisted the tempation to add that he wouldn't want to wait until Mon if it was his own toilet. The cheapskate just doesn't want to pay the higher cost of an emergency plumber for a tenant.

I'm waiting for a reply.

Ok, you just made my day. THAT was funny!

However, it gave me a mental image I don't really want, seeing as how we rent our house from my in-laws! LOL
