Note to self...


How helpful! This toilet comes with a handy dandy reminder that, every day at 6:20, it's time to take a bathroom break. Great for people who spend a bit too much time on the Interwebs and need to be reminded to do things like eat, shower, and change out of their pajamas.

Is that wall asking people "Y r shit"? It's a wall in a bathroom, fer crissakes. You think it would've figured that one out long ago.

Hey, that's even better than post-it notes!

No, you have the clock thing wrong. It's not meant for scheduling potty breaks. It's one of those signs like you see at a small business--"Will return at XX:XX". The sewer monster that lives in the toilet can move the hands around to let people know when he will return.

Thanks for the reminder!

It's lunchtime and I need to change out of my PJs!

This is some of the strangest graffiti I have ever seen.

I actually really dig those fixtures. It's sad that a home someone apparently cared about along the line can get to this point.

Maybe it's graffiti left by "squatters".

How thoughtful... when the previous owners renovated the bathroom, they made the tub ADA accessible.

Ally said...

mhr310 just made my day!!

Sara, sometimes I think Chair's not really happy about all the attention...

Heh. Signs that maybe I've been paying too much attention to real estate prices in various areas? My reaction to this was not, "Holy buckets, did the ousted owners do that? Or are there gangs in San Fran?"

But rather, "Hey! That's a GREAT deal for San Fransisco, and there's hardly any structural damage..."

Eek.

Why S? said...

Better They tag the inside of that house than the outside of my house.

Alex said...

Sara, did you miss the giant penis scrawled on the toilet seat? Not exactly the best rendition I've ever seen, but yeah.....

Sara said...

Alex: my life is one of sweetness and decency, and I would never notice such a thing.

Jennifer said...

Land of Shimp:
I was thinking the same thing. A house for only $124,900 in SF?

Teapot said...

I'm with Alex. That toilet seat needs a modesty chair pasted on its (magic-markered) privates.

Bank-owned? Really? And what a shame they didn't show us the "un-warranted" downstairs rooms w/ the separate entrance: looks to me as if the bedroom(?) ceiling is warranted to fall down any minute now.

I'm not so sure that's a penis on the toilet seat: could be a crack pipe, or maybe a gun--hard to tell, although I don't recall having seen a penis with a 90-degree bend in it before.
