Default Toilets and WOMEN???

I hate to ask such a stupid question on THT but do the rest of the men here have problems with Admiral's and daughters that flush their feminine hygene products downt he toilet.

We keep having a problem with 2 of our 3 toilets, 3rd one is the toilet son and I use the most, stopping up. Admiral and I got into a "discussion" the other night when her toilet stopped up again. I have had a plumber clean them both out in the last year

Does anyone else have this problem

We're on septic and my ladies wrap'em up and put them in the trash. Just have to keep the doors shut so the dog doesn't get in them.

I think using "women" and "problem" in the same sentence is repeating yourself.

Default That's a major no no

Plugging the john is really the least of your worries. Just wait until the corks find their way into the drain field and plug it off. Now you're looking at $5-6,000 to re-do it instead of a hundred or so to unplug the crapper. You need to inform the ladies of the house that they are putting future shopping trips in jeopardy.

It's just amazing how many things they are completely ignorant of!

I'm 48 and they still surprise me.

I have had a few guests try to flush them down the head on the boat, despite having given them the Captains briefing when they first came on board.

My wife knows not to flush them in the house or the boat. But it never fails when we have other ladies on the boat something will go in the marine head that isn't supposed to weather it be a tampon, paper towels or a wet nap. Thus causing it to jam and unusable until I can take it apart. And that obviously doesn't happen until a later date so nobody can use the rest of the day.

Believe it or not they do it even though they are told not to and I even have a little placard in the cabin that states "other than a small amount of the supplied toilet paper nothing is to be flushed down this toilet unless you ate it ot drank it first" and it still friggin happens.

I can't even keep paper towels out in the open because for some friggin reason they want to flush those instead of the T-paper. Now whenever we have people on board that are not extremely familiar with the rules I make my wife explicitly explain to them every time they use the head.

Ok ok my rant is over. Its just that I have had to take the head apart and remove one to many USED tampons.
