After trying in vain for a week to fix a so-far undiagnosed issue with the family’s primary bathroom, resident dad Arthur Franklin has somewhat given in to the demands of his family.
However, instead of calling a plumber, he has instead decided to settle by renting a Porta Potty and placing it in the back yard of the family home until he “gets this thing sorted out.”
Franklin explained his decision, saying, “Listen, I’m not paying some plumber my hard earned money when it’s clearly just a problem with the U-valve or something.”
“I’ll get this fixed eventually. Till then, we’ve got the other bathroom, or if that’s in use, you can just go outside and take care of business in the Porta Potty. No shame in taking in some of the great outdoors.”
Franklin, who according to his wife has no actual experience working in plumbing, claims that at no point will he admit defeat and call a plumber, though he might “split a six-pack with some of the boys to try to figure this thing out” during the weekend.
