    Re: so it happen

    I decided to show off and be a "bigtuffguy" by grabbing two toilets, one with each hand by the holes in the cardboard boxes.
    One fell, the boss gave me that nickname for a good 3 months..."Hey...BigTuffGuy!".

      Most chips are done when someones not paying attention and strikes the front horn on tile.I don't know how many times I've seen this happen.

              I'm 3 years in, and broke my first bowl awhile back, and I'm sure it's not the last. I was just in a rush and tightened down the johni bolts too much. I think I broke a tank once too, by rushing as well and tightening the tank-bowl bolts too much. I blamed that one on the cast though.

                    Learning the parts is an excellent way to start in the plumbing field.

                    I remember the first few months I was out, I broke an american standard. I cranked as much as I could and then turned the water on, it filled, then popped.

                      Some toilets are just an invitation to a break; an accident waiting to happen. I try to stay away from any toilet that isn't strong where the tank-to-bowl bolts go. I could mention a few names . . . any company that thinks that they are saving money by making the toilet as thin as possible needs to be shunned.

                        My razor sharp, sarcastic wit is apparently wasted on a few of you.
