I just spend a half hour trapped in a bathroom.

Ahh the bathroom, the greatest room in the house right? WRONG my bathroom almost became my coffin! Ok maybe that’s an exaggeration- it almost became my bedroom for a night.

I went to the “Captain’s Head” (As I call it) to take a wiz. I shut the door when I realize what happened earlier today, the doorknob is broken and doesn’t turn! I hear the ‘click’ of the frozen bolt snapping in to place on the door jam. I try and turn the knob but it just spins around. I push up and down on the doorknob I rock it back and forth. Nothing!

I think, ok time to calm down, what tools do I have on hand… a comb, a bar of soap, the box the soap came in, an electric razor, a bottle of shampoo, and a bunch of coat hangers. Crap where’s a skill saw or hammer when you need one! I wedge open the metal plate of the doorknob with the box the soap came in and use the comb and coat hanger to push it open. No good. I wrap a towel around the door know and hit it with the bottle of soap. Still nothing. Damn I guess I’m not MacGyver after all. I’m getting desperate. I start thinking about how I could use the shower curtain as a blanket and the towels as pillows. I go all out on the knob I twist it a dozen times in a counter-clockwise direction and the door opens!!

Next I go to my room and grab a screwdriver then take off that damn doorknob for good.

... oh and after all that I still have to take a wiz...

I nearly got trapped in my junior high school bathroom over a weekend due to an overly eager janitorial staff locking up the school as I relieved my self. And the floating craps game wasn't even there to keep me company.

LOL, a bar of soap and the box. Ya, I could so see the look your your face looking back and forth from the soap to the door. Least you got out and still remembered to take that wiz, awesome.

Ah, yes. I got tapped in the bathroom in pre-school once because the door closed and I wasn't strong enough to open it. And then the teacher came in and yelled at me for ditching nap-time. Which really sucked because I was a good kid and hated getting into trouble (ah, how things change...). Although I really hated nap-time. I think actually slept through nap-time twise througout the entirety of pre-school...

Wow. I'm rambling. Forgive me, and I'm so glad that you got out of the bathroom alive.
