There is nothing that could be more frightening than anything crawling out our your toilet. A couple in South London were horrified when they discovered a rat crawling out of their toilet.
According to Huffington Post, Margaret and Keith Woods say the rat first appeared in October when their daughter watched the rat climb out of the toilet and run loose in the house. Since then, the rat the couple has named “Roland” has been poking his head out of the toilet bowl every night.
“We are petrified to go to the toilet,” Margaret says.
She told the Sutton Guardian that they run the faucet and flush the toilet just so they can use the bathroom without the fear of little Roland popping up. They even caught a video (above) of the rat poking his head out from around the bend in the toilet.
Having had enough, the couple contacted their utility company back in March, but it wasn’t until three weeks ago that the company actually came out to investigate. A spokesperson for the company apologized for the delay, calling them “unacceptable.”
This isn’t the first time a rat has popped out of someone’s toilet. There are several YouTube videos of other rats popping out of people’s toilets. There’s even a video illustrating how a rat can swim up the pipe and up the toilet in a cutaway toilet.
