Sigh, you idiot...

My son dropped something down the sink. Fortunately there is an easy-to-remove P trap down there. I put a towel down to catch and spillage.

After I disconnected the trap, I got the bright idea to empty that water out of it .... into the sink!

I called myself an idiot.

I really meant it because I noticed more water in the trap and dumped that TOO down the drain.

Not my finest hour.

Doug, you must have a faucet open to keep getting all that water in the sink.

BTW, did you find whatever it was that went down the sink in the first place?

Happy New Year to you and your family.

I watched a professional plumber do that. I think I was more amused than he was.

Yup. Center piece of one of those stupid %##*ing fidget spinners. It actually wedged itself in the pipe that drops from the sink above the trap. I made the mistake of putting my finger up there and rubbed it on the funk buildup. Freaking gross!

The spinner needed a good cleaning, drying, and then some shots of silicone spray. Back to good as new.... unfortunately!

Do not feel stupid about that at all. 1997 we had a early winter storm just before Halloween. We were without power for 11 days and every morning for 11 days, I'd walk into bathroom to get ready for work and what was the first thing I did...EVERY MORNING ? flip on the light switch on the wall...DUH !!! Felt stupid every time I did it.

I'll be going down stairs to flip beakers due to an outage and flip the switch on.

One time while camping DW said she dropped something down bathroom sink drain, when I removed trap I found tweezers nail clippers and a few more items. Don't know how any water got through.
