Knowledge Transfer

Continuing on with the series about making sure other people learn from my mistakes:

Tip 1: Don't store your Maalox Max next to your Listerine Whitening Mouth Rinse because the bottles are quite similar and one of them will actually make your stomach feel worse if you accidently swallow a mouthfull. Trust me.

Ok, so the bottles aren't that similar, but I was hungover and was not exactly at my peak mental capacity. Geesh.

Tip 2: You can't use toilet bowl cleaner to clean off an actual toilet seat, as it will almost immediately eat through the toilet seat's paint and create awkward colored drip stains all over the seat that look suspiciously like diarrhea. Toilet bowl cleaner apparently belongs inside the bowl and nowhere else. I learned this the hard way a couple years ago. Then my roomie K-Mack learned it the hard way last week, and I was forced to make an emergency trip to the Home Depot for a new seat before her parents arrived for a fancy dinner event. And then she was forced to explain exactly what I meant when I announced to the entire dinner party that she had "made a mess of the toilet seat so bad that it required replacement."

Consider yourself informed.

Got a stock pile of replacement seats from Fleet Farm myself. For just such emergencies.

Also when it comes to anything "mouthwash" or "breath freshining" Blue=bad. But swallowing blue thinking it's Malox....oh man, really bad day in the making.

Oh wait, your's was clear. Ooops.

Well I guess farting won't be so embarassing. Minty Fresh.

One more thing, it's no longer "Knowledge Transfer" according to my engineer monkies, it's now called "Knowledge Solutions".

Wow, that made my stomach feel worse just reading that. (and I'm just wondering why you haven't thrown that stuff away if it's so terrible.)

I have made a similar mistake with crest sparkling mint toothpaste vs.a tube of balmax diaper rash creme...that also is not a pleasant mistake...
