... I did my business and flushed as normal. About 15 minutes later, Tahar himself went to the toilet and suddenly I heard a screaming from the bathroom. Worried that I had left a large floater, I ran in to see what the fuss was and somehow it seemed I had flooded the bathroom. After raising the alarm to the neighbour, a million towels were found and we were all on our hands and knees mopping up the mess, filling several buckets with water. I felt terrible but once all was cleaned ...
