Sitting in my office working late and this nasty whiff suddenly appears. It has been around now for about 20 mins or so... Suddenly I hear 'plop....plop...plop' noises... I turned around and this is what I find angry.gif

Well you may as well take the rest of the month off and not bother coming back until after January.
Finding a Swede to do a shit job, before Christmas you may find half assed.

Also make sure you have all your computers backed up.
As I am sure the people who live above you have a good back up and are more than willing to share.

Jokes aside, really sorry to hear about this.
Many Swedish building have 1 main toilet pipe running through the house, resulting in on poor person getting a reverse block and their abode stained.

What's usually worse is the culprits can be traced as usually its those living directly above you.
And when a clean out of the pipe is done, you will be able to see all the stuff they have flushed down the toilet, that shouldn't have been flushed. And embaressement will be hidden with denial, arrogance and unwillingness to help.

Either way, get out and let the insurance do the rest.
Good luck.

Gentlemen Please!!!

This is NOT my home... this is my office in work! smile.gif

Came in this morning to find my office quite literally ripped apart... walls, ceiling tiles, vents etc.... Looks like I will be sitting elsewhere for a few weeks... The stench in the building is pungent to say the least.
The leak didn't just hit my office, it also ran down the elevator shaft and there was a big pool of shite at the reception area! It even ran out the front door onto the street whereupon I was greeted with a lovely poo-slushy this morning.

Maybe this will catch on as a new interior design look?

The acoustic tiles acted like a colander smile.gif
(Apoostic tiles....)

I'll get my coat.

Yep! Seems the sewage pipes froze at ground level somewhere up the street and the the poor building was constipated for a while.

I now also have poop-sicles outside my window too.
