First dates are usually pretty anxiety-inducing and most people tend to have those fluttering butterflies in their knotted up stomach. But for this one woman in Bristol, things took a turn for the worse (and awkward) when she was stuck in between two non-opening windows.
The amateur gymnast was out on her first date with student, Liam Smith, when she threw her poop out of Liam’s washroom window.
The poo then got trapped in between the windows and when she went in to retrieve it, she became stuck.
The unnamed woman said that the poo ‘would not flush’ so she panicked and decided to throw it out the window into the garden.
However, it did not land in the garden and instead became wedged. She decided to dive in head first after it and she too became stuck.
Liam was forced to call the fire services for help in rescuing her. Liam has since started a crowdfunding page to fix his broken window.
In an interview, Liam said: ‘we’d had a really nice evening. We’d had a meal at a well-known chicken restaurant, had a few beers and then gone back to mine for a bottle of wine and a film.’
Liam said that when they got to his place, she excused herself to the washroom. When she came back, Liam said that she had a ‘panicked look in her eye.’
When she told him what she had done, Liam said that he would go get a hammer and smash the window but she instead offered to dive in headfirst.
Liam said: ‘I was starting to grow concerned, so I called the fire brigade and once they had composed themselves, they set to work removing her from the window.’
The woman was rescued unharmed but the bathroom window has since been destroyed. ‘Problem is, I’ve been quoted north of £300 to replace the window and as a postgraduate student, that is a significant chunk of my monthly budget.’
Liam set a crowdfunding target of 200 pounds but he has since surpassed that by garnering over one thousand pounds!
Liam said that he and his tinder date have decided to take the remaining cash and split it between two charities, one that supports firefighters and the other helps maintain flushing toilets in developing countries.
The pair have since gone on a second date and Liam is excited for the future. ‘We had a lovely night on the second date but it’s too early to say if she’s the one. But we got on very very well and she’s a lovely girl.’
He finished off the interview by saying at least ‘we’ve already got the most difficult stuff out of the way first.’
