I am glad my bathroom has a window!

Woooow, this sucks! But you need to learn a lesson from this - never go to the bathroom without a phone! Smile

Or an axe if you don't have a phone or a window!

Oh my goodness. If I were her, I would start scheduling a remodel of my entire place just to get at those neighbors.

Well the good thing is she stayed mighty clean and could shower. The bad thing is if she ran out of toilet paper. Now that in itself would be a dilemma.

No the dilemma would have been if the tap stopped working. What else could she have drunk from?!?

I was reading the article and I got to the bit where "she survived for 3 weeks by drinking..." and in my head I'm saying No No No, forgetting that they have taps in bathrooms.

Ugh, Ed, that's a bad trip indeed! Tongue Btw, I just figured it shouldn't be too difficult for me to get some help if this happened to me, because my bathroom's gotta window. Which makes me wonder, how did she manage to get enough air for three weeks if she didn't have a window and she was supplied merely by a small ventilation drain? It must have become reaaaaly tough to breathe after some time...

That is so super sad! I would be pissed (sorry, no pun intended) if no one questioned where I was after a couple of hours. If I did not have reading or writing material, I would simply go crazy. OMGosh, I would literally STARVE to death, too! I think my door is cheaply made (no window) so I could probably figure out how to break it down, but really?

Ya know, I have a dear friend whose husband installs phones and works on phone lines, and the other week end I was up at their lake place, and he was saying how he was putting a phone in a woman's bathroom, and how he called his boss, because he was afraid to pound into the material of whatever the wall was made of, afraid it would crack. I said, " A phone in the bathroom???!!!" and he replied that this was something very common in the 70s or 80s. Reading this, I can see why that would NOT be a bad place to install a telephone (of course now we have cordless, but I know I don't always carry my cordless or my cell into the bathroom every time I visit).

Wow, what a story, CL-ED!

A phone in the loo isn't such a strange idea. A while ago I stayed at my sister in law's place in Japan (she was working there for a few years) and they had a thing called "shower toilet". Despite the name it wasn't a shower / toilet combo (although it did have a bidet thingie which I guess was the shower part). But anyway it had the wash basin on top of the cistern so when you flushed it automatically ran water and you could wash your hands there and the water was recycled into the toilet system. So it also saved space in small Japanese apartments. But not only that the toilet had a heated seat, and the bowl had a blue glow so us boys could aim straight at night time when it was dark. But wait that's not all! On the wall next to the toilet was a phone and intercom system so you could talk to visitors and a button to open the front door right from the comfort of your own throne.

Thank goodness they didn't have a tv on the back of the door or you might never want to leave.
