If you are a parent what is the most common item that has fallen into the toilet bowl? I have heard of remotes landing in the toilet because the child thinks it is a good place for them, I even been a victim of the cell phone in the toilet. The cell phone was tossed after being fished out. LOL I'm weird that way. If it goes in the toilet, I try not to use it again or it gets bleached first.

Once i was tutoring a kid when there was a commotion outside the study room. Apparently his youngest brother had put a few goldfish in the toilet bowl. He was playing with them, and accidentally flashed the goldfish away. These were rare and expensive goldfish belong to their dad. A lot of yelling and crying, and my student and I were laughing away.

Ouch, nobody eats goldfish. Goldfish is a feng shui fish, meant to bring good luck to the family, and bring more "gold" into your house. That naughty boy flushed away a few lively and beautifuly goldfish. A rare goldfish can cost a few hundred dollars. I bet this little guy flushed away the family fortune oh.

LOL. I bet he was spanked for sure. Why on earth would a child take a goldfish out of it's tank? How would anyone give a child enough time to do that? That is pretty funny. It's hard to catch fish by hand. LOL

Why on earth would a child put a marble up its nose? They do crazy stuff all the time.

This reminds me of an email joke that circulated a while back about male children putting things in the toilet. I forwarded it to a penpal of mine in NY and he said he was one of those curious kids who decided to try flushing a banana!

LOL. Did he grow up to become a plumber or a surgeon? Kids that do things because they are curious are soooo funny.

That kind of figures too. His curiousity helped make him a smarter person. Good for him.

The most common item that usually fell inside the toilet bowl is the bar soap. It made our toilet bowl clogged for several times that we need to hire someone whose into this job to clear it out.

Knock on wood that hasn't happened. I can't imagine having to call a plumber for such an ordeal. I guess the soap doesn't get smaller quick enough. LOL

That's true soap does not melt that fast so theonly way to take it out is a plumber. Grrrrrr i hate it when this thing happens at home.
