“It Works As a Phone, Too” – Grand Prize Winner of Toilet Story Contest


The Professor is proud to announce the grand prize winner of the American Standard “Tell Us Your Best Toilet Story” on Facebook.  Emily Horos of Atlanta GA received the most votes, winning a new Champion 4 toilet, installed.  Here is Emily’s story:

It Works As a Phone, Too

I lived in a house with two female roommates, so toilet paper was never in surplus.

One night while watching a movie in surround sound in the living room, I felt the call of nature and exited the room for the adjacent bathroom.

I did my business and reached for some toilet paper before noticing that the roll was empty. No worries. We kept a stock of extra under the sink as this was the only bathroom in the house. I opened up the cupboard only to find it bare as well.

I admit this had occurred in the house previously. So, I pulled up my jeans to minimize the chance of anyone seeing anything and yelled for one of my roommates to bring me some paper. I shouted each of their names several times, but was not heard over the din of our DVD system.

Somewhat dismayed, I settled in to wait. Eventually one of my roommates would need to use the restroom and I would be rescued. But what was I to do in the meantime? Dipping my hand into the right pocket of my jeans, I pulled out my cell phone. A couple keystrokes later, I had loaded Bejeweled onto the screen and was happily passing the time by matching colored gems.

It was at that point I realized my phone, while great for playing games, functioned even better as a communication device. A quick “Help bring tp” text ended my extended trip to the toilet and no one in the house ever went to the bathroom without their cell phone again.
