I have a big hole in my bathroom wall.

So, I was taking a shower this morning, I lost my balance on the wet bottom of the shower and leaned on the wall to regain my balance and a bunch of tiles and drywall caved in, and the drywall looked like it had turned into mud. Fortunately my building's resident manager told maintenance to get their asses over here ASAP.

1. Isn't that what Senator Craig said?

Seriously though, I'm glad you didn't bash a hole in anything important, like your skull. Slippery bathrooms are notorious for injuries.

4. It's an old building.

Built almost 40 years ago and still has the ugly shit-colored ovens.

5. If they're not "avocado" shit colored ovens, consider yourself lucky.

8. Six years ago, we rented an apartment when we first moved to Georgia.

Somehow squirrels got into the crawlspace and set up their living quarters behind our shower wall. I could hear them scratching and reported it to management. It took two long weeks to get them to take care of the problem. By the time they fixed it, the wall was paper thin. I think I hold the record for the shortest showers in history.

16. In retrospect it is quite funny.

At the time I was very afraid to go into the bathroom. We only had one bathroom at the time. I kept the door closed at all times not knowing when the squirrels would finally break in. The management fixed it in one day, after I threatened to check into a very expensive hotel and send them the bill.
