…And you thought plumbing was boring?

The day after Thanksgiving, always busy for retail stores, also is the busiest day of the year for Roto-Rooter, a national plumbing and drain service that reports about 50 percent more calls, nationwide, than on any other Friday…

Ask Benjamin Franklin’s local plumbers what they have seen down drains, and you’ll get all sorts of answers: Eggshells – Cat litter – Potato peels – Hot Wheels cars – A headless Barbie doll – Grease buildup – A diamond ring – And plenty of cell phones in toilet lines.

“Cell phones are famous for plugging up bathrooms,” said Joel Mullen, operations manager for Ace-Hi Plumbing. “Especially at Wal-Mart.”
