The Brush Off

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 24 October 2022, aficionado.

With our toilet blocked, I lacked the skill,
Sought a plumber, to cure all our ills,
We found just one man who knew,
How to unblock the loo,
But took a mortgage to pay the guy’s bill

    • Mrs B paid £1,000 only a few years ago to get an emergency plumber to replace our toilet. Even so, we have had to have another plumber in since because it hadn’t been fixed properly.


      • There are too many so-so workman about nowadays. We had a plumber install new piping from the toilet (a few years ago), and he wedged a brick under the pipe preventing it from a gradual downward slope. The result was a backup of solids, which was solved as soon as a different plumber removed the $#! brick. Trust-a-Trader should be called “Distrust-a-Trader.
