Re: who pays for cleaning the hair clogged drain?

I had that very issue recently..
The kids told me the toilet was blocked.. I look and nothing obvious but on flushing, the water just fills up the bowl and empties after an hour or so.
I suspect that one of them has deposited something down there.. So I get out the plunger and set to work.

After 5 minutes of plunging the full bowl of water gurgled and disappeared.. Thinking i was a plumbing hero i stood up to claim my victory.. Only to notice that now the adjacent shower cubicle is ankle deep in excrement and toilet paper. I had plunged the poop the wrong way along the pipe I guess.

Mr Hanky was now bobbing up and down the shower drain..

Should I have called the landlord at this point?
No, you buy another plunger to block the other drain while you're doing it.
