When I was a kid, one of the two hinges broke off of my toilet seat.
As any inquisitive person would, I checked to see if I could fix it. Though I used all my knowledge of Legos and basic hardware, I quickly realized I was incapable of turning my now multi-directional toilet seat back to its original design.
So, I asked my dad for help. I knew what was wrong, had an educated guess on how to fix it, but needed some outside help to get the job done. Together, we put our best effort into the job. Let's just say the results were dicey and included dusct tape.
Eventually, the real expert in our family (my mother) intervened and called the plumber. I’ll never forget the joy I felt coming home from school one day to a non-duct taped, fully functioning toilet seat!
