What happens when a contractor breaks something else while fixing your home?

i thought it was something else after reading the title (unlicensed contractors damaging customer's property etc..)

$233 just to unclog the toilet ?

No to strangers. If you are guests or people i know who will be coming to my house, then yes. just hope it's not #2. This would feel awkward confronting the person about this..


either that or have these for guests ?

Honestly, people are so messy that the mere thought of having to clean someone's fecal or urine from the floor, seat or wall is truly disgusting and I would not want to encourage more "guests" to use my bathroom.

Only in true emergency situations I suppose, like a pregnant woman or the elderly and even then I believe I would hesitate.

Sorry, but after working at a Cafe and Pharmacy and being put on a cleaning shift, I've had my fair share of having to deal with complete strangers and bathrooms.

Oh man, this remind me of this weird ass lady that came knocking on my door at midnight!! YES MIDNIGHT!! She asked me if she could use my bathroom and if I can give her clothes...I told her I can call the police to help her out, she jump right on it saying NO! That a Red Flag there.

Obviously she there to steal my stuff lol. I had my Mother there because she was talking so low I couldn't hear her.. She started talking about how pretty the flower was.. I was like its midnight! After 15 min, she finally gave up and move on..

I keep looking out the window to check, and I noticed there was a white van pulling in to pick her up! So I reported her to the community police officer.. She probably trying to get inside the house to check out the security and see what I got lol. Or she could be trying to sell her body to me.. YUCK! She look like dirty whore lol.

It doesn't make sense, How dumb is she coming knocking on your door at midnight lol.

I rarely have an issue with people using the guest/"public" bathroom. It's kind of designed to handle the worst. I have a Kohler Numi in there (and I normally explain this to whoever goes into the bathroom - it's all hands-free/automatic) which is definitely not a low-flow toilet. The plumbing downstairs (where the guest bathroom is located) is reinforced and the toilet's plumbing is cast iron. I've deliberately tried to clog that thing up with toilet paper, you'd have to go through two or more rolls (tried a whole roll and it was fine).

The best policy is that if you're going to let guests or strangers use a bathroom is to have it as simple as humanly possible. The toilet confuses people (since it looks like a cube until you get near it) but it also means that you don't have to touch it. If you need to do a #1 (as a guy), you wave your hand and the seat goes up. It's the only bathroom that's completely decked out to make sure that plumbing isn't an issue (other than the master bath). Guests are just as likely to try to break things as strangers are, in my experience. People don't often respect other people's property or belongings.

The only strangers that get to use mine are properly vetted repair men if they need to after they've fixed something. I let them know which is the hand wash soap for guests since I use an alternative due to allergies. Everyone else gets directed to the local public community toilets on the next street.

No, I'd rather keep my bathroom exclusive to me and people I know.

I'd rather not deal with other people's crap.

Depends on which bathroom. The guest one? Sure, that's what it's for. I'll be annoyed if they stink it up, but that's nothing a match won't fix. If they actually make a mess of it then we'll likely be having words.

Have only had a guest clog the thing once that I recall, she was embarrassed, but I got out a plunger and life went on.

Perhaps I'm more phlegmatic about having to clean bathrooms than average since I did janitorial work while still in school. If I dug through my memory I could probably tell you some bathroom horror stories that'd make your hair curl.

The only strangers that come around are the maintenance people of my apartment complex They have a bathroom a couple of minutes away. They have no need to use mine.

I don't want random people using my bathroom. Especially not men, they leave the seat up.

Not all men.


It's going to sound weird but I sit down facing the back of the toilet (water tank) for #1 when i'm at home. It's quicker and little splashes. I'm used to it by now to be honest. If the toilet seat was left up, it wasn't me.

It's a sanitary issue + respect for the women living with me

^Well, good for you. But I can't assume that of men in general.
