Ok, Time To Learn Something…

Ok, everyone, time for Aunt Tammy to teach you all something. 

For the past 2 days in two different locations, I have run into a situation that is showing we are lacking some education in the world. Being the giver and teacher I am, I am going to address this need right now. Feel free to share in your circle of influence if you are running into the same thing.

Yesterday I go into a public restroom and find this….

(thank you google)

(Not actual picture, I’m not that sick and gross to take my own picture of someone’s “leftovers”)

Now, first and foremost. I don’t need to see your floating left overs nor do I need to see that you ate too much popcorn the night before and have created nice little clog for the poor porcelain god. Nor am I impressed with your ability to hide the evidence by stuffing tons of TP in the toilet to hide the true reason for the clog.

Now, it does happen from time to time our little insides are just dying to release at the worse possible time and the worse possible way. Anyone who says this hasn’t happened to them is lying.

But here is my issue.

(thank you google – again)

See the thing sitting next to the toilet? It is called a plunger.

Here is a close up in case these are new to you.

(thank you google – again)

Now, here is where the breakdown seems to occur. Maybe folks don’t know how to use this device.  It is actually very simple. Just plug your nose if needed and hold back the gag reflex like I had to yesterday to fix this problem.

Insert into said toilet, create a seal, and push back and forth creating a sucking sound. Success will eventually come and everything will be free to float down the sewer highway.

Granted sometimes you have to whip out the big artillery but this simple technique will resolve 90% of the clogged toilets in the world.

So yesterday my need to go potty was greater than my need to be grossed out. No bathroom for next 5 hours wasn’t going to work and obviously the culprit wasn’t going to fix it them self, so I took the dirty deed on myself.

Then TODAYYYYY, I come into work and guess what? Same freaking thing? Do I look like Mr Roto Rooter?

Once again, I take the handy plunger located right next to the clogged unit in question and within 30 seconds we were back in business.

Please pass along this easy to use tip….

If you clog up a toilet and the plunger is located within arms reach, please plunge your own pooh away.

Thank you for your support

Waiting….and Waiting….and Waiting to Pee

I hate having “windows” of time for a call or appointment.

Don’t you?


It seems like I’m always last.

Yet I get to get up early and wait. Then I get to wait some more.

And if I’m really lucky, I get to wait some more.

But you know what is the worse part of the wait?

Is when you gotta pee

Yep, by far, the worse.

Because you know deep in your heart,

that the minute you sit down that phone will ring.

So you wait some more.

And then it only get’s worse.

So you decide you can get in and out and do it in less than 60 seconds.

Surely that phone will not ring or if it does,

in 60 seconds you can pick it up by the 3 rd ring.

No problem.

And since by now you really have to go or you will be sitting in a puddle

You take that chance.

Then ….

It happens.

Not only is the phone ringing but it gets even worse

Yep, the stream keeps a coming if you know what I mean.

Quickly you analyze that if you do pick up, two things will happen

1. They will hear that bathroom echo that always gives you away &

2. Niagara Falls in the background will link to the echo and …



Well,  it really is their fault.

Did they really think I could hold it for the whole 4 hour window?

Who Wants a Nap?

Yesterday I mentioned how it was in the 100s here. Yep… HOT

The problem with the heat is it zaps you of all energy. As long as you are inside all is good. But 2 minutes outside and you are ready for a nap.

I wish I could nap. It is one pleasure that I really never get. But if I could, I would walk outside first  because I’m telling you. That heat will drain you faster than a Blond Bombshell with a Rich Man’s Wallet.

So I thought I’d share some Nappy Nap pictures to remind us all how great it would be if we could take a nap right now…

I know I for one would LOVE one right now!


Like Father Like Son

Kids are great, they can sleep anywhere

Great hiding place too!

(reminds me of people when I worked at Home Depot that crawled up in the racking to sleep)

Railroad tracks??! This guy is just an idiot – LOL

This one just made me smile

This one is just a reminder not to nap drunk (you know who you are)

Now who hasn’t taken a quick 5 minute nap in the john?

This one is just wrong…Plain wrong…

(But I bet you laughed!)


Ok, nap time is over…let’s all get back to work!

What is with These Women!

First off, the Not Normal and Proud of It! Club is coming along great. A few new members and even a few new ideas. (like a rock climbing wall).

But for now, I must rant for a moment. It drives me up a freaking wall (and not this new rock climbing wall either).

I might get a little graphic for the moment, but it is necessary in my mind. This is how it sounds in my head.

Why is it when I go in a public restroom,

women are pissing all over the toilet seat?  Seriously!

I expect dudes to do this, but women? 

If you are going to squat, at least hit the big hole!  And if you do miss? Guess what, toilet paper will wipe that dang seat!

Do not leave it for the next person to find and deal with.

I have gone in our local casino that has 10 stalls and literally walked all 10 to find this very picture.

I was at restaurant the other night and all 3 stalls had this. Give me a break!

People can be so rude and disgusting.

There are only 4 things that tick me off. Otherwise I’m pretty easy-going.

A) Lying to me

B) Disrespecting me (especially when I haven’t disrespected you)

C) Guys with pants down and their asses hanging out (see B – above)



Ok, I feel better now.

And if you are one of these people (which I doubt you will admit) (just kidding, my readers would never do this… I think..lol)

Please, please wipe up your yellow stream, I want nothing to do with it. Hell, I’ll even flush for you, but don’t make me wipe your bodily fluids up for you!


How do you feel about this? Does this drive you batty as well?

I now return you to our normal fun loving me….  😀

Uhhhh, shouldn’t we all???

Why Only Employees?

For some reason this sign hit me as funny today. I’m not sure why today of all days. Especially since I look at it multiple times a day at my store and most public places have it posted as well. Employees Must Wash Hands.  Why just employees?

Shouldn’t it really say – Hey you! Yes you who just wiped your butt – You MUST wash your hands.

We all have seen it. Person comes out the stall and walks right out the bathroom not even looking at the sink. They didn’t even have to think about it for even a split second. They did their business then off they went.

And guys? You are even worse, shake it off and run out. Just cuz you bounce a little doesn’t mean you are exempt.

Listen, I know it is an inconvenience to spend that extra 30 – 45 seconds washing your hands. Heck, if you don’t use soap you might even get it down to 15 seconds. But at least a little water will flush off (pun intended) some of the left over you have going on.

If you don’t want to wash your hands at home, I’m not going to give you grief. Afterall, it is your home, your castle, your hoarders house.

But when you are at a public place that serves food and I might just touch were you go next….help a girl out. I collect enough germs on my own, I don’t need your assistance collecting more.

I think I figured it out. It’s a conspiracy by the pharmaceutical companies. They know that if we wash our hands more, then less people will be sick and the less cold medicine we we will all take. Or worse, stock shares will plummet due to a decrease in sales of hand sanitizer. (speaking of which, I have some here, let me put some on)…..

Ok, I’m back. Dang that stuff stings when your hands are dry. I must be washing my hands too much lately. ….
