90. Bathroom Etiquette

When guests need the bathroom, I say it’s broken and I just called the plumber and he’s on the way.

It’s a lie.
The truth is, we haven’t cleaned the bathroom since 1997.

  10. My mom always had a fancy bathroom for guests only. We used the crummy one. When my kids were little they'd ask grandma "Are we guests?" This struck my funny bone.
