This sort of E36 M3 goes on across the street from me all the time. It's an interesting neighborhood. One neighbor across the street from me is 100% white trash. The other neighbor is a doctor with a car collection that includes an Audi SUV, an upmarket BMW convertible, a Honda S2000, a Roush Mustang, and a Lamborghini Murcielago.

From the description in the text, I am invisioning the porcelain lid to the tank, which is easy to remove and makes for a very effective emergency weapon. However, the article shows a picture of the (usually plastic or coated fiberboard) seat & it's lid, which makes no sense. If a drunk lady took the time to remove that, she would have time to sober up and realize that the porcelain tank lid is the better choice.

Now, as to why he didn't fix the leaky toilet already, I have no idea.

I agree the picture does not match the description and I wonder wherein lies the error. Truly, I have never seen a toilet seat made of porcelain. I assume the weapon was a tank lid and the picture is incorrect.

Sounds like you live in a trashy neighborhood with a smart doctor Just put up with the neighbors and spend all the property money you saved on sweet rides! As wearymicrobe has demonstrated, an expensive neighborhood is no guarantee of nice neighbors anyway...

You have to understand the female mind. While leaving the lid up is not a serious offense in and of itself, in a woman's mind they are allowed to add up the individual micro-crimes until they reach critical mass. Then you are berkeleyed.

As men, the toilet seat issue is going to be a perpetual battle of the sexes. And since you are not going to win it by pointing out that in a sexually egalitarian society perhaps they should be leaving the seat up for YOU?

That don't work. Trust me.

Here is what does shut them up.

Put both lids down.

It wont end well, but you will die on the moral high ground.

Poor Florida Man. That guy just can't catch a break.

I assume the donor toilet was in the front yard/porch. Probably had a plant growing out of it.

That may be true, but the trashy neighbor is actually the exception. It's a very nice neighborhood. In fact, we often joke that the trashy neighbor is the only thing keeping the neighborhood from being perfect, which is fine, since perfect is an unattainable absolute anyway.
