Degree Deodorant has been good to me over the years. And it's motto "Degree: It won't let you down" has been confirmed time and time again. Until yesterday, it totally let me down.
I had just gone to the bathroom, flushed the toilet, and then opened the mirror to grab the air freshener (don't judge me!). When I grabbed the spray my deodorant got bumped out of the mirror and flew directly into the toilet (which was still flushing). And it went down. It totally let me down.
I really saw it happen in slow motion, but still it happened so fast that it was long gone before I even thought to try and grab it before it flushed down. It didn't swirl until it fit into the bottom of the toilet, it was a straight shot down the hole (that's what she said ...couldn't help it). But really, my deodorant it picture below. It wasn't a travel size, believe me I would sweat through one of those in a day. It was the full sized plastic tube.
So after having to explain to the management office what happened, and having 3 maintenance workers try to get the deodorant out of the plumbing, we got a replacement toilet. So moral to the story, renting isn't so bad because mistakes don't cost you that much. And second, close the lid after you flush.
