I love this story, so I’m going to keep it in it’s original form. This happened my 5th day in Spain when I was staying at a hotel in Grenada. I told my Mom what transpired via Facebook messaging. I’ve copied and pasted for your viewing pleasure because… well, because I think it’s awesome. Strong language ahoy!
2:01pm – Mom
lmao, european plumbing!

Dude this shit is weird
Their toilets flush weird
2:02pm – Mom
as long as they flush, all good
2:02pm – Katie Renee
Like, the one here (the apartment) you push down.
The one at the hotel… geez it took me freaking forever!
I was trying to press down, and I moved it all around…
I stood there getting so mad that I was like, so retarded
Finally, I found out I had to pull it up
So yay right?
This morning I had to take a shower,
So I went in the bathroom and there was a shower by itself and a bathtub shower
But the bathtub one had a shower head right in the middle
So I was like… okay. I got the curtain all arranged, expecting it to fall straight down
Turned it on
And the damn thing shot right into my face.
Like, right into it.
In the morning.
I was so freaking pissed off
So I was like, fuck that shit, I’m using the other shower
So I get that all ready
And I get it started
And I’m watching it
And the water isn’t draining right
So I lunged and turned it off as a tidal wave spilled over onto the floor
Went under the door
It was a disaster
So I was mopping up the hallway and the floor
Again, pissed off so damn much
I thought about not showering
But my hair was gross
I made the bathtub shower work by pulling the thing down so it was straight
But it got the last laugh, because when I turned off the water, the shower head fell out of the holder and smacked me on the head.
Fuck European plumbing.
So for all my followers in Europe, I think you guys are awesome, but your plumbing despises me with the burning passion of a thousand suns. And I assure you, no operator error was involved. Your plumbing is just magically possessed by an entity that hates me, because that’s the only plausible explanation I can bring myself to accept.
