You stare at the steady rise of water until it hits the bottom of the rim in total horror.... and then by the grace of God it slowly starts spiraling back down.
this horror is multiplied exponentially when it happens at someone else's house.
I had a similar terrifying moment once. I went with my best friend up to Washington for his families once a year family reunion. We were at his uncles house and I had just met everyone. After he had used the restroom I went in. It was a small restroom with hardwood floors situated next to the living room.
I checked the toilet and everything looked normal. So I proceed to take a piss. No shit, no tp, just a piss. I flush and the water level starts rising. I don't know what the fuck is happening, but it's almost to the rim now. I'm frantically looking around and trying to think of how to stop this damn thing, praying that I hear that magical calmness from the toilet telling me that the water level has reached is peak. No such luck. Water pours out of the toilet all over the floor. A lot of water. The floor is soaked.
I rush out and find my friend. I tell him what's going on and he starts laughing. He finds his uncle so we can get a towel and his uncle is cool with the situation. We clean up and my friend feels the need to make jokes about it the whole trip. I found out that he took a shit beforehand so his shit must have clogged the piped internally. I was the unlucky sap that took a piss afterwards and the subsequent flush caused all hell to break loose.
