You've never seen me very upset...

Doesn't look to news worthy to me. A fish tank took a leak...at a Downtown Disney restaurant. Not even a especially large fish tank and not even a catastrophic fail/leak. They just need a bucket a and cleaning women.


Now if the windows of the "Living Seas" resturant gave way..that would be news worthy.
 
2014-03-18 12:41:54 AM
Disney doesn't own or operate the restaurant. It is just a chain restaurant at a Disney operated shopping mall.
 
2014-03-18 01:43:36 AM
Oh, wow, that tank might be big enough to fill that room to, what, 3mm?

T-Rex is easily the loudest restaurant on Disney property. Damn that place was loud.

Yesterday I was at my friend's apartment watching a movie. He'd already seen it and he popped out to the grocery store. While he was there, I heard his kitchen sink make a noise. I went over to it and looked. There was a foul smelling liquid bubbling up out of the garbage disposal. In a split second, it filled the sink and gushed over the counter, spilling raw sewage onto the wooden floors. I ran and grabbed a bucket, kicked off my shoes and started bailing raw sewage into the bucket.

When the bucket was full, I ran outside and threw the horrible shiat on the lawn of the apartment complex and returned. I left the door ajar. As I continued to bail vomit-smelling water with bits of food in it, I screamed to the neighbors for help but no one heard me.

From the front door, you can see the kitchen but there's a high wall blocking the view of the sink. I frantically was bailing this disgusting mess as it continued to gush out of the sink. At that point my friend comes in the door, sees the panic on my face, and says "what's wrong with you?" Then he smells it and says "What the fark did you do??"

I spent the next two hours, covered in raw sewage, standing in soaked socks, babysitting the sink while we waited for the plumber to show up.

At one point I cried because while he passed me groceries to put in the fridge, I dropped some sliced cheese in the mess. Another, I forgot my hands were contaminated and I scratched my chin.

THAT was pandemonium.

Lawls.

Additional details:
1. The movie was This Is The End. It's a hilarious dark comedy about the apocalypse.

2. Earlier, we had connected his new washing machine. I really thought running the washing machine caused the backup. Every time we tested it, the sink would bubble up again. It was just a coincidence. The sewage was coming from the two floors above.

3. The plumber tried to make me feel better about the nature of the sewage, telling me it was from the 2nd and 3rd floor kitchens and not the bathrooms, but I found a pubic hair in the mess when the water had receded.

4. The neighbors eventually did notice and one asked me if I had seen his pasta. Yes. The plumber said it smelled like unholy vomit not because it was toilet sewage but because the food sits in the pipes for a long time and only moves down a foot or so when someone turns on the sink. So it decomposes while in the pipes.

That could just mean someone took a leak in the kitchen sink. I've pissed in every drain in my house, just because. 3 bathroom sinks, 2 showers, 1 kitchen sink, 1 attic sink, 1 garage sink, and 1 garage drain. Surely I dropped a pube here and there.

...speaking of over priced theme restaurants at Disney, is Planet Hollywood still there? They had the Alien Queen and Ripley's load lifter there. Ate right next to it, awesome. Also a naked Stallone frozen in ice from Demolition Man. Not so awesome. And one of the medals Leia gave Han and Luke and (I assume one of many of Christopher Reeve's Superman suits. The one in Miami had the Death Star #2. Being a movie nut, I gladly paid $15 for a hamburger at those joints. I'm still paying off my bar tab though, from 12 years ago.

The rest of the shopping is pretty much the same as you'd find at most other Disney souvenir shops. Still, they're usually less busy than the ones in the parks (with the exception of World of Disney, which seems to always be a madhouse). We also like Wolfgang Puck Express. We've been to T-Rex once... just not up our alley. Too chaotic.

We're more fans of Raglan Road- never had a bad meal there and it can be great fun if you're seated in the main dining area with the band and the dancers. Their bread pudding is simply amazing.
