Knowing when to use the plunger

June 18, 2008

Our boss made her weekly visit today, which always includes two boxes of Krispy Kreme’s. We were discussing some of the issues we have, since our building isn’t associated with the campus we’re at. This causes all sorts of silly problems and finger pointing.

She compared the situation to the flushing of a toilet. Everyone is going crazy, swirling around and around, splashing and dunking. Eventually we’ll find out what’s got us plugged up and everything will flush again like normal.

I’m going to start using this as much as possible in conversation. For example: “Don’t worry about it, it’ll flush soon”, or “We need to figure out what toy is keeping your toilet backed up.” Just think of all the possibilities.
