A hardware store employee is going viral after sharing the “inexplicable” crisis she encountered at work.
Presley’s clip, which was allegedly filmed inside a Lowe’s in Tennessee, the TikToker details the day she discovered a “Titanic-level” flood in the store’s bathroom. Her video shows the bathroom completely covered in water, as she and another employee attempt to push back the mess with giant brushes.
She then approaches the source of the disaster — a toilet which is somehow spewing out water as intensely as a fire hydrant.
“Work in retail they said, it will be fun they said,” Presley captioned her clip.
The video drew thousands of confused reactions from commenters. Many wondered how a flood so massive could have even occurred.
“How did this even happen?” one user asked.
“This is how the titanic really happened,” another joked.
Others said the mess was so severe that Presley should’ve considered quitting.
“I would’ve quit right then,” one user commented.
Presley did follow up to explain the flood, although it’s still unclear how long her clean-up actually took. In a series of subsequent TikToks, she said that the situation began when an employee who used to be a plumber tried to fix one of the store’s toilets.
“It basically blew on him,” Presley explained.
She also told her followers about an oblivious customer who, somehow, tried to use the bathroom in the middle of the mess.
“My manager says, ‘Can I help you?'” Presley explained. “And [the customer said] ‘Uh, I have to go to the bathroom?’ It’s out of order if you couldn’t tell!”
