reminds me of the time that my drain was clogged, and the maintenance
department said they would get to it when they could. No problem I
said, I am at the back of the building, I will just put a large basin in
the sink, and dump the colored dirty water out the window. I did, and
three days later (yes! three days later...geeze I still wonder what took
so long) they fixed the sink, much to the chagrin of my principal who
was mortified when the kids went around the school excitedly telling
everyone how cool it was to dump water out the window!
