Sh*tter's fixed :P (PG-13 post)

Searching for a funny photo of cousin Eddie today (yes, we're still dealing with the sewer issue), I found this: 

The Moving Pencil is the name of the website, and the person behind it does custom graphic art.  
I don't know this person and have never bought anything from the website, but I did enjoy looking around :) 


The husband called in the big dogs today.  
They came, they saw, they dug, and they tromped around in really nasty watery muddy gunk.  
They turned the pump on; they turned it off.  
And, finally, they gave the husband the bad news.  
The pump was completely burned out and would have to be replaced.  
$2500.00 price tag.

To say that our budget does not allow for such unexpected expenditures is putting it lightly.  
Our bargain price ended up being $2160.00, but what are ya gonna do? 
Not pay the guys for sloshing around in your sewage and replacing the pump on your sh*tter?

I don't think so.


  1. Ouch. And at Christmas. Very poor timing for things to go down the toilet....or not go as the case may be.

    1. Ha!! Yep...we'll be eating pb&j thru January!

  2. Is it bad that I knew what you were referencing even without glancing at the post? I love that movie. Gotta love Cousin Eddie. Good lord though! That is a hefty price tag but you are good to go now for years to come.

    1. We love the movie too!! We watched it several times over the holidays :) I hope we're good to go; our system seems persnickity, so we'll have to be really careful about what goes into it. :/
