We’re in the middle of doing some renovations in the house and I told my wife I was going to re-do the bathroom in our rev room. New toilet, vanity, sink, paint, etc. 

I mentioned that I know a guy through a coworker who’s a plumber and does side jobs for cash and is going to install a new toilet, among a few other things. Here’s where the conversation went from there:

Wife: A new toilet has to be installed? But we already have a toilet there?

Me: Yes. And this guy is going to remove the old one and hook up the new one. 

Wife: Why can’t you just put the new toilet where the old one was?

Me: We are. (Starting to see where she’s going with this).... 

Wife: So just put the new one where the old one is? Why does anyone have to do anything if we already have a toilet there?

Me: you realize a toilet has to be hooked up to water so it can flush, right? You can’t just fake it out of the box and put it against a wall?

Wife: oh, I guess your right. It needs to have running water....

WTF

Maybe she’s wondering why you don’t just rip out your old toilet and drop a new one in yourself  like a man instead of hiring another man to do it for you...

It's literally a 5 minute job.... turn off water, unhook, unbolt, rip off, new wax seal, slam down, rebolt, turn on water

She basically said why did I marry a useless man who can't even hook up water

Watch a YouTube video, then tell your wife you’re going to tackle the toilet to save a few hundred bucks. Tell her you’ll need to shut the water off ALL DAY so she might as well make plans and leave for the day (you could shoot for a weekend too).

 

Once she leaves do the job in about an hour or so, then enjoy the rest of your day to play video games and jerk off. Don’t clean up until just before she gets home so it looks like you just finished. 

 

You’re welcome.

Your wife thinks you're a fag. 

Replacing a terlit is simple.

Huge backfire on Yossarian here haha the only stupid thing his wife did in this case was assuming that her husband might have rudimentary handyman skills

LOL@ these blue collar people doing by themselves the shit you hire immigrants to do for you, and then trying to make fun of a guy for not having to get his hands dirty.

This fucking place, man.

This guy gets it. 100%.

 

As far as toilets are concerned, I don't know if I've ever even been told how to replace them. I think I just did it. So fucking easy. No instructions.

I hate home remodeling shit. my wife loves HGTV and it gives her all of these retarded ideas on ways to spend money, she doesn't know how to do anything and I dont see any reason to replace a perfectly good toilet with another one with a slightly different shape when I could be doing my hobbies instead. I've vetoed hiring ppl to fix things that aren't broken

 

fuck working on the house all weekend.

I hate the word "update", like you need to spend 40k to change the style of your house like teenage girls change clothes. Its ridiculous.

LOL at everyone hating on a guy for not replacing a toilet.

The OP says its a bathroom reno. Meaning it's not just the toilet needing replaced. Why would he hire a guy to reno his bathroom, yet replace his own toilet.
