A man is seeking money for a new bathroom window after his Tinder date got stuck while attempting to clean up an embarrassing accident.
Liam Smyth of Cabot Ward, England, launched a GoFundMe page and retold the bizarre story that occurred after his date had trouble flushing his toilet.
“I went for a poo in your toilet and it would not flush. I don’t know why I did this, but I panicked,” Smyth’s date said. “I reached into the toilet bowl, wrapped it in tissue paper, and threw it out of the window.”
He went on to describe that due to a “design quirk” the dubious package was left lodged between a narrow gap between his home and a non-opening double glazed window.
Smyth planned to smash open the other window with a chisel, but his date decided to try to fit into the space and retrieve the “poo” herself.
“Being an amateur gymnast, she was convinced that she could reach into the window and pull the poo out, using the tried and tested “inside out bag as glove” technique,” he said.
After several attempts she successfully managed to reach into the space and grab the toilet-paper wrapped turd and pass it back into the toilet.
Unfortunately when it came time to wiggle her way out of the space between the windows, she found herself stuck.
“I grabbed her waist and I pulled. But she was stuck. Stuck fast,” Smyth said. “Try as we might, we could not remove her from the window. She was stuck fast, upside down in the gap.”
After about 15 minutes of unsuccessfully trying to pull his date from the window, Smyth called Avon Fire and Rescue.
“Bristol’s finest were on scene sirens blairing in a matter of minutes,” he said. “Once they had composed themselves after surveying the scene in front of them, they set to work removing my date from the window using all of their special firemen hammers and tools. It took them about 15 minutes.”
The helpful fire rescue crews were forced to decimate the window to rescue his date, but he managed to raise 445 pounds ($580 USD) to repair it.
