Shortage

By WaterNeeded - 21/06/2018 20:30

Today, I came back from a holiday with in-laws who don't speak English. After taking a dump and not being able to flush, I realised they had turned off the water prior to the holiday. I had to show them my poop to explain they had no running water. FML

Plot twist, they didn’t have a poop cutting knife either.

Oh, it’s not? Kidding. To clarify, I meant turn the knob on the sink to show there’s not water coming out of the faucet.

Why didn’t you just use the sink?

You make it sound like taking a shit in your sink is totally normal.

If in doubt, do your thing outside in the dirt and cover it up afterwards. It's been done for thousands of years.

You could of went to a faucet first

I think I would google how to say "no water" in their language before showing them a turd

Why not just turn on the tap?

They say music is the international language. It’s not, but shit is. I’ll bet your in-laws understood you perfectly.

You couldn't have simply turned on I dunno....ANY OTHER water-dispensing device in the entire house?

Next time just type "Please turn water on. I can't flush the toilet" into Google translate and it will translate that into your language of choice. Then simply hit the play audio button and let them hear it or just show them the translated text on your screen. Won't be perfect but they should get the gist. Probably a much less embarrassing and disgusting method for everyone involved.

big question, did you not bother to learn their language?

Not everyone can be bothered to learn someone’s language for the very occasional use.
