When over one time took some bacon grease and poured it down my drain. I let him have an earful! But, he had actually seen this as a "tip" in some magazine. I asked him if it was "High Times". He got mad at me for getting so mad at him but I couldn't hold back. I thought EVERYBODY knew that you don't put greasy stuff down drains, but apparently not...

Potting soil is a good one, in a 2" line for about 100 feet solid.

How about concrete because the masons thought it would flush with enough water.

Or the time I pulled a full size bath towel out of a 4 inch main. This was from the main drain of the house of the President of Brockport College. Neither he nor his wife would admit to that one.

Or the size XXXXXL whitey tighties that someone flushed down a toilet in the Student Union. I never saw a pair of underwear that big before but they sure made a mess of the first floor lobby. We pulled a towel out with that one too.
