Everyone working in the General Services Administration building right now is counting the minutes until 5 p.m., when they get to leave the office and find the nearest public restroom (but not in Starbucks). They're all holding their bladders and bowels because a toilet exploded, sending a woman to the hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, WUSA reports.
Employees have been sent the following memo:
DO NOT flush toilets or use any domestic water. Due to a mechanical failure, there is high air pressure in the domestic water system that resulted in damage to toilets. The engineering staff is working to correct the issue. There has been damage to flushed toilets that has resulted in injuries. We will announce when the issue is resolved.
This kind of accident can do permanent psychological damage, on par with finding a rat in your toilet bowl.
