I hate, hate, hate toilets. They are pure evil. If anyone ever offers to replace your toilet for you, swallow your pride and graciously accept their offer, and then buy them a nice gift. I had to replace my toilet last night, and it was such an unpleasant experience. Between being up to my elbows in toilet water, and smashing my head on the counter because my bathroom is too small, it was all around not fun. To top it all off, I can not for the life of me get it to stop leaking where the tank connects to the bowl. I knew I should’ve bought a one piece toilet, then it would be all set! Oh, well. Live and learn.

Im impressed that you replaced it yourself!
We had a leaky toilet last month that we tried to fix and replaced some parts but we ultimately had to call someone. The joys of homeownership!!

My husband and I spent the entire weekend together after we first met… replacing my toilet together. He’d broken it with a whiskey glass when he was drunk on the night we met. Our house was from the early 20th century so most of the fixtures were completely out of date, we had to make some seven or eight trips to Home Depot to finally get all the right parts. It sucked!! But we laugh about it now, and have a painting of a broken whiskey tumbler to commemorate the event. I did kinda fall completely in love with him watching him work so hard to replace the toilet of someone he’d just met.

@MissBoPeep: I thought your post was going to be about cleaning toilets (I hate doing that!). Wow, you fixed it on your own. I’m totally impressed. I wouldn’t even know where to begin. That’s great you were able to do it! Sorry it was hell and that you hit your head, though.
@IvyClimb: What a story!! Yep, I can see how he warmed your heart. Nothing like a guy fixing your toilet after just meeting! That’s an awesome story! If you are having children, just imagine telling them that someday! They’ll love it. 🙂

Haha, thanks guys. I’m just too stubborn to let someone else do it for me!
