    Default What's the craziest object you have retrieved from a drain line?

    Other than the typical "rubber" that we all probably see, I got a wedding ring out of a line 7 years ago. A former colleague of mine augered a "pleasure toy" out of a toilet..., a single man's toilet at that...

    The strangest this for my was a pair of parachute panties “parapanties”

    I held them arm to arm and they still sagged.

    When I showed the husband. He turned red and walked away

    Hand to hand for me is 70” so the waist on this gal had to be at least 150” plus inches

    The bad thing about the washer stand pipe was it was in the wall and couldn't take it a part and they are a tight fit.
    And I'm sure that what was in the bag. What else could it be?? I think the folks were from Turkey they had cool water pipes!!!!!
