Sometimes in life you have regrets. No one is immune. They can mount up over time. Yes, there are the big ones like not marrying your high school sweetheart (and true love) or not taking that perfect job offer because you wanted to go to Europe instead of starting a career after college. Then there is the time you spent too much on a luxury car to impress a girlfriend. Wow was that stupid! Other regrets are not so catastrophic, like not replacing an old toilet with a new Kohler model. I made the mistake of getting a cheap replacement instead of forking over the big bucks for a top-of-the-line brand. Needless to say, the decision caused problems. Here is my story:
I never miss a bird watch, especially when it comes to raptors, but I had to recently as I was waiting for the plumber to arrive. Anyone who has had issues with sinks and toilets know you usually wait for hours. The toilet in questions overflowed, causing a huge mess as you can imagine. Clean up was prompt but nasty. I rue the day I found a bargain basement model. I was a sucker for the low price. It has not been particularly reliable. This day was supposed s to be special—out in the field among the raptors. We bird lovers all know the best local spots. I wait patiently for these opportunities and take along my digital camera with a zoom lens. Even missing one outing makes me blue.
I was a disappointed sad case, but my friends went without me and reported back a wonderful experience in nature. I live for such days so this time it was vicarious. But it wasn’t my destiny due to the faulty toilet. At least it was repaired and the issue has ended. Next time, I am going to get a new Kohler, and choose which one will look best in my home based on the reviews at http://www.ratemytoilet.net/kohler-toilets-reviews-find-best/. They make superior products including the latest innovations: no touch flushing, self-cleaning, low water flow for us conservationists, comfortable elongated seat, and more. You can opt for an “intelligent toilet” with a cleaning seat. I can’t believe the technology for toilets. It has reached new heights. No wonder the company defines itself as “the bold look of Kohler.” On top of all the great features, you get an elegant modern style. Yes, elegance is what I want in a toilet. Don’t laugh. Of all our home devices, this one gets the most use and attention. Why not get one that looks good.
I am back on track and ready to book some raptor watching time. Meanwhile, I am saving for the best that Kohler has to offer. I am reading the reviews which are endless. People go on and on about their satisfaction. I know they can run in the thousands, but I am no longer going to cut corners. I want durability and reliability above all. I refuse to be a victim of my poor choices.
