Uh-oh my grant's got me in trouble

So I went to go read my Specific Aims in the toilet. As one does. Unfortunately I dropped it in. Bad Potty. So to speak.

Here is the incredibly timely email that came today from our Uni (and was resent to me by the tech in my lab):

From: Almost-MRU Announcements Sent: Tuesday, February 10, 2015 9:47 AM Subject: Sanitary Sewer - Reminder

Almost MR University (AMRU) has been notified by the LowerKooKooville County Water Department of concerns regarding “rags” in the sanitary sewer systems. To avoid further damage to the system and contamination of the water supply, we ask ALL MEMBERS of the AMRU community to not flush non-sanitary materials into the public sanitary sewer system.

To educate our community members, we want to remind everyone to only flush toilet paper and human waste. Below is a list of the typical items people flush that can lead to clogged toilets and/or potentially damage wastewater treatment equipment and treatment processes. Please do NOT flush any of these items into the water system:

  • baby wipes
  • cleaning wipes
  • band-aids
  • cat litter
  • chewing gum
  • cigarette butts
  • condoms
  • cosmetics
  • cotton balls and swabs
  • dead pet goldfish
  • dental floss
  • disposable diapers
  • dryer sheets
  • feminine supplies
  • food fat
  • food
  • hair
  • dirt
  • paper towels and napkins
  • prescription medicine

Thank you for reading and adhering to this request.

Dead Goldfish? How did they know it was a pet?
