I’m at the bar, door guy comes up to me, says, dude. One of the urinals is overflowing. Oh shit, I say. Did you try to jiggle the handle? That’s as far as my expertise in plumbing goes. Just jiggle it. Yep, he says, jiggled it. All right, I’ll go check. I get the bar covered, go to the bathroom. Yep, overflowing. What do I do? Duh, jiggle it. Maybe the door guy just didn’t know how to jiggle it. Guy comes in to use the bathroom, I say, hey man, do you know anything about plumbing? He looks at me like I’m an idiot. He says, not really. Did you try jiggling it? Oh yeah, I’ve been jiggling the thing for five minutes. The jiggle is not working. Shit is overflowing.
I run down to the martini bar. There’s a guy there, knows plumbing. I go in, frantic, dude, the toilet is overflowing in the Men’s room. What should I do?
He says, did you try jiggling it?
Yes, I say. I did.
