Rub a Dub Flub
Turn on tub faucet like you always do. Add Epsom salts to calm and alkalize your body.
Add Vitamin C because you read somewhere it neutralizes chlorine. Wait 45 minutes for your 110 gallon tub to fill.
Do other stuff, like cleaning the kitchen and answering email.Run to the kitchen in a panic because you hear whooshing sounds.
Scream, "Oh my God!" when you see water gushing out of the ceiling lights that sit under the upstairs master tub.Place giant pots underneath all flows.
Run upstairs to turn off the water. Notice that an overflowing 110 gallon tub looks like a thick sheet of water flowing onto the bathroom floor, which is already a few inches deep with water. Yes, a few inches deep, no hyperbole. Swear.
Try not to look at husband who does not have a friendly expression as the water laps his ankles and who is holding bath towels to start absorbing the mess.Cringe when your husband says, sternly, "This is going to be $100K of damage to the house."

I don't care how much it costs or where we'll put it, but I know it will cost less than overflowing the bathtub!"Finally realize that the tub filled three times as fast because you turned on the cold water that takes 15 minutes to fill the tub, not the hot water which takes 45 minutes. Say "F*ck" under your breath as many times as possible because the kids are around.
