You Know You’re Having a Bad Day When...

‘ The woman, who was not identified by authorities, fell into the toilet attempting to retrieve her cellphone that had fallen in. She was at the top of Mount Walker of the Olympic National Forest in Quilcene. A vault toilet, also known as a pit toilet, is housed in permanent structures and does not flush nor do they utilize water.

Brinnon Fire Department Chief Tim Manly said the woman first disassembled the toilet before using dog leashes to tie herself down in the stall while she reached for the phone. That effort failed, and she fell headfirst into the toilet.

“They didn’t work very well and in she went,” Manly told The Kitsap Sun.

The woman was alone and tried to escape the vault for 10-15 minutes but wasn't able to get out. But, she did get what she went in after: Her phone, which luckily had cell service. So, she called 911 for help. ‘

There ain't nothing on a phone worth that.
Nothing.

Nope, and there are plenty of better ways to go about retrieving the phone than what she did.

This happened about 15 miles from my home - moral of the story - if you are going hiking keep a tether on you phone!

Yeah, my wife told me about that a couple of days ago.

She must really have loved her phone.

But the big question is, was it an iPhone?

That’s a great idea, but by the time she returned with those items her cell phone may have been obliterated. smiley-shocked003

We usually have all sorts of interesting things in my partner's truck when we are out and about, including a bucket with a bunch of tools in it, and some rope for securing stuff to the roof rack. My Prius has a bunch of reuseable shopping bags and some jumper cables. Those would have worked too.

Though HUGE credit for trying to McGuyver a solution to the problem.

Except for the first three rules of the Phone Club:

1) When the phone craps out, let it go
2) Repeat
3) Repeat






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I bet if she got it on the first try would have wound up right back at the bottom in no time.
