What... a... dump.

Don't click on that photo Philip found. Don't do it. You'll regret it. Trust me. Just don't. Don't don't don't. Go do something else. Maybe a nice walk? Or cookies, you could make cookies. The hallway closet always needs cleaning.

There are many, many things other than clicking on that photo you could do, and I suggest that you go do them all.

I'm sorry - I can't. I just can't look. Maybe I'm a coward, maybe I just don't have what it takes. Maybe I've seen too much already...but I can't.

I wish i had listened to you...there goes my appetite for the day!

How about "Lose my cookies"?

Mandy said...

Another listing agent winner.

If you look at the rest of the photos the toilet was covered. Which means they actually lifted the toilet seat to purposely take a photo of poo!

Juliana said...

Proof that all the disclaimers in the world won't help save us from ourselves.

HotHeaded said...

I don't understand why you would take a picture of a toilet with the seat up.
Regardless if there is anything in there or not.
I am pretty sure 99.99% of us know what the inside of a toilet bowl looks like.
Ugh.

Mandy:

Perhaps the realtor has some 'splainin' to do....

I believe he left more than just the specs behind on the kitchen counter.... (and i say "he" because both seats were left up after dropping the kids off at the pool...)

Mandy said...

I absolutely agree with you mud!

I should have known better. Why? Why? Why? Why do they take these photos? I wouldn't have even set foot in that room, would not have stuck a camera through the doorway. Ugh - so gross.

mudslicker said...

Oh...different bathroom...oopsy...I shudder to think what was so nasty in the toilet with the closed lid...hehe...

What's up with chair's pathetic younger cousin White Plastic Bucket left all alone in the tub? Was WPB working on their chin ups on the soap dish (see evidence of the chalk-grip dust on the tiles) when they collapsed in a sad heap of polymer sweat on the cold tub floor?

My apologies for hogging the posts today..I procrastinate on getting on with the day...

kirsten said...

One of these days I will actually listen to you *sigh*

The ole reverse-psychology crap-snap-trap.
Gets me every time.

can't say as you didn't warn me...

and thanks - this was the perfect beginning to my new diet - I couldn't eat anything now if I wanted to

It's called "crop" and the most elementary of photo editing software can do it.

Perhaps the photographer thought crop was spelled with an "a" and included it in the photo?!?

Sue said...

Seriously, how long does it take to PUT THE LID DOWN for a photo?!?!?!?!?!?!

Scott said...

When we single guys have a lady over, we know there is one thing we must do that is more important than anything else: clean the toilet. Nothing ruins the mood more than a woman lifting up a toilet seat and screaming in horror.

So I have heard.

Not only did I click, but I clicked while I was eating lunch. Bad move.

bikerchick said...

Ohhh, so that's what it looks like if you never, ever, ever clean a tub or sink for the entire life of the house! I fell for the "double dog dare ya" and I lost.

I really like the wallpaper. Everything else gives me the shivers.

Cindy said...

I've never understood why they don't just pay a cleaning service to come in sometimes... it could add thousands onto the price people would be willing to pay for a place.

Or maybe the cleaning crew wouldn't tackle that one...

EllieJayneDesigns said...

I should have made cookies, I should have made cookies, I should have made cookies!

jasonhackwith said...

I had to click it.
[wince]

Jeanne said...

Oh. Dudes. Flush already.

This blog makes me feel less bad about the imperfections of the house I'm selling. In comparison, my house's flaws are nothing.

The Breeze said...

Yeah.............ew.
On another note, what is the yellow contraption on the sink?
Maybe we dont want to know......

L.G. said...

Dirty, dirty diarrhea-infected household. And that faux marble finish doesn't help things.

Love the blog. It always has me in stitches, especially *that* dog entry.

I've never understood why they don't just pay a cleaning service to come in sometimes... it could add thousands onto the price people would be willing to pay for a place.Actually, the math of real estate agent commission doesn't always work out so logically like that. Keep in mind that the agent typically gives up 50% commission to the agency/brokerage. So, even if they can get a few more grand for a house their take home pay is only incrementally more, and they've had to do more work on moving the house.

This is really more of a general principle to be aware of when dealing with agents. What might seem prudent to do as an owner (spend a few dollars on cosmetics, wait for better offers, etc) will only slow most agents down since the modest increase in sale price won't translate into more commission enough to be worth their extra time.

That said, I also came in here to make a "lose their cookies" joke. Geez, realtor guy! At least close the toilet lid with your shoe or something!

You're not going to get me on that again, nosiree. Once, months ago I thought, "Oh, she's got to be joking." and I clicked. Then I screamed. Then I clicked my way out of there with great determination, speed, and as it happens; disgust. Never falling for that one again.

So, nope. Not clicking. Safe my eyeballs are! Talking like Yoda, I am!"

But even without clicking, I know what's there, and what is wrong with people? FLUSH. Put the lid down. EGADS.

Chris said...

aaaaah my eyes ... I clicked ...

Once seen, you cannot unsee it

Jodi said...

Huh. I seems that everything really is bigger in Texas.

kathi said...

Oh dear... should have stayed outside admiring the curb appeal.

Catlin said...

Hahahahaha! Very gross. And I just ate a bite of my pj sandwich..

Kate said...

this reminds me of that myspace picture...

also a do not click unless you are prepared (not horribly bad, just remember to flush a toilet before your myspace angle shot)
