Have you ever dropped your phone in the toilet? It’s a pretty crappy situation to be in. Believe it or not, things can get worse than seeing your phone floating in a toilet full of, well, you know. For one unnamed woman who was on top of Mount Walker when nature called, her situation escalated rapidly and dramatically.
Trying to retrieve her phone, a woman falls head first into an outhouse toilet
Do not bring your phone in the bathroom with you
So her situation at that moment was downright disgusting as she was stuck in the outhouse toilet trying to retrieve a phone that may or may not be damaged. The device could also be caked with feces and marinated with urine. For the next 10 to 15 minutes, the woman tried to get herself out of the predicament when she came across her phone. She used it to make a 911 emergency call.
There is no word on what happened to the smartphone, but its owner was uninjured. Brinnon Fire Department Chief Tim Manly said, “I imagine that she was probably very fortunate. I do not have any experience with that kind of a rescue, except for now, but I know that is not a good place to be.”
Your best bet is to keep your phone out of the bathroom when you need to use the toilet. And if you need to be entertained while on the throne, you can do what your parents did, bring a book or a magazine with you.
