Dottie's 'Stuck in the Tub' story

Posted by caroline (My Page) on

It seems to be time for a blast from the past. Here is an old, old KT posting by our dear, now departed, "Dottie-IN."

This was posted in June 2000. I may have cleaned up a bit of the spelling, since I copied it to share with my Mom and MIL, but it's just as Dottie-IN wrote it.

How embarrassing!!!

Posted by Dottie-IN on Sat, Jun 10, 00 at 18:20

I have a nice big tub - but no shower. Now usually I sit on the side of the tub and take a sponge bath but I had a hankering for an old-fashioned sit down in the tub bath and figured since both of my grandsons are here, if I got stuck they could pull me out. Wrong again!

Now I know why I didn't post to the one about 'Your Most embarrassing Moment'...it was because it hadn't happened Eet...until today.

I managed to get down in the tub by sitting on the end of the tub and sliding down into it. I threw a towel over me and called David in to pull the lever up to hold the water in and turn the water on. Okay, the tub gets full so I yell and he comes back and turns the water off for me. I soak, and soak and scrub and scrub and I smell so nice and squeaky clean so I yell for David, throw a towel across me, and he comes in and lets the water out for me.

I'm all set now, right? But wait; I can't get out of the tub. So, I call David back in and ask if he thinks he can pull me up. Says he can IF I can brace my feet and push. I couldn't. The tub was too wet. All I did was slide my butt around and fart. Then I get both of the boys in there but Shane was about as much use as the puddle of water squishing around under my butt.

Next, I had David pull 18 towels out of the cabinet and sit them side by side down the tub in two rows thinking I could push my feet on them and get some leverage. That didn't work either. All it did was get all of the towels wet because the faucet drips.

I ask David if it would embarrass him to see me naked and he said not as much as it would to have the fire department come out here (which I had already mentioned).

I throw off the towel; he closes his eyes and tries again. No luck again. So, I have no choice but to call 911. Neither of the boys would do it because they were laughing too hard. I had them stretch the phone into the bathroom and I did it myself.

Here come the sirens and there I sit with a towel draped over my luscious bod. I don't want to hear any more complaining and how you look in a bathing suit because no matter how bad it is, it can't be any worse than me sitting in the tub with NOTHING but a towel draped over me which I already know is going to have to come off.

Here comes three guys walking in the bathroom, three of which are total strangers to me, and the first one says, "Okay, just what is the problem? Are you stuck in the tub or just can't get out?"

I said, "I have heart problems and can't lift my own weight and the boys aren't strong enough to pull me up." He says, "That's no problem. If we can get you stood up and out of the tub, can you walk?"

Walk? I could run and hide in the closet if I could get out of the tub!! One gets hold under one arm and the other gets hold of my other hand and ZIP, there I am, standing stark naked in the bathtub. I rather testily said, "I can get out by myself but thank you for helping me."

He just grinned and said, "Well, we'll wait out in the hallway in case you're too weak to walk or anything."

Now, all of my towels are wet; they had removed my clothing from the bathroom floor so I have to wrap a wet towel around me and show up in the hallway before they'll leave. They leave, and here comes the landlady..."What's the matter? I saw an ambulance down here."

I said, "Are you sure you really want to know?" and she said she did so I told her.

After she quit rolling around on the floor and telling me I should have called her so she could bring down her camcorder and we could have won $10,000 on Worlds Funniest Home Video's, she called her MIL, who actually owns the place, and told her she needed to get a shower hookup in here for me and ASAP. Said it would be installed by next weekend.

In the meantime, if I absolutely HAVE to sit down in the tub again, call her and her hubby and they'll rescue me. I told her she'd better get a good whiff of me while I still smell like I just took a bath because I won't be taking another one until the shower is installed. She sniffed and left.

Now it's just me and the boys and every time I look at them, they look at each other and snort trying not to laugh. They're smarter than I thought!

Oh Dottie LOLLOLLOL. I am glad you're okay. I am laughing so hard, my DD keeps saying "What are you laughing at?" I tell her (about the farting which we all laugh at all the time) and she laughs. Then I get to the part where you had to call 911 and she says "Not so funny NOW is it???? Then I finish and she is glad you are okay too.

That is gonna be one special memory for your GSs. You are all bonded in a real special way now!

Hey, were any of those guys single? I need a bath too. LOL Maureen

Dottie, Dottie, Dottie....

To have all those men at your beck and call.... LOL! Seriously though, I'm glad you're all right. Try to remember your limitations young lady. Maybe you should consider an in-house Life Guard. I'm sure David Hasselhoff has time on his hands these days.

Sorry for the embarrassment, but thanks for sharing the laugh. - Prof

Dottie you sure can tell a story! *wiping tears from my eyes from LMAO* Oh my, and the fart noises...oooooh, my stomach hurts, stop making me laugh...*snort*

!!!!

911 OMG! Thank you for posting! Seriously though, I am glad that they will be hooking up a shower for you! Do me a favor though, and try to find a shower chair or stool and a garage sale! Don't want you EVER sitting on the side of the tub again!

Oh, I am laughing so hard, I am crying! And my sides hurt!
Dottie, you poor thing!! I am glad they are having a shower hookup for you!

HEHEHE! You sure can tell a story, though. I agree with getting a shower chair- I would like to have one just to relax and sit while I have my shower.: )-Lisa

Would you believe as soon as I read the subject line I thought to myself I bet it's Dottie who is going to be the author of this subject. BINGO! I was right. Dottie, Dottie, Dottie what are we going to do with you? Uh? Nothing. Why? Because then we won't have posts like this.

You are a brave woman for posting this or less you slipped in the bathtub and hit your head. LOL I am now going to copy and save this for the future. You just never know when I will need to use this against you. LOL Thanks for the great laugh Dottie. BTW, how many times have I told you to stay out of trouble? Do you listen? Nooooooooo, you climbed into trouble and then couldn't get out of trouble! Now you need to bake some cookies for those nice fireman and take the cookies over to the fire station for them. Be sure and asked them if they remember you. If they don't, then started taking off your clothes! That should jog their memory. Frances

Dottie, You have out done yourself. I am laughing and crying. This is the funniest thing I have ever heard of. Of course, if anything like this is going to happen, it will be you that it happens to. ROTFLMBO!!!!!!!

He he he he (trying to muffle it, Dottie) ha ha! My goodness, I can just see all that going on. It's a wonder those grandsons are able to contain them-selves as well as they are! (giggle,giggle) Sure was a good story! I think you take the prize. Lol We are laughing with you. Please know that. Glad it all turned out good in the end! (he he) Oops! Glad you're okay!!
And I was embarrassed to have my dh to help me out of the tub when I had foot surgery! hehe

�Posted by: BettyeAZ

Oh, Dottie, I am so glad your story had a happy ending! I know that your family will never let you forget this one.(I doubt that the firemen will forget, either)I'm sorry, but I can't help laughing. Your vivid, play-by-play description of that scenario was hysterically funny! I do hope you write about this event in your journal. It is definitely a keeper!! ((((Dottie)))

�Posted by: Cricket / Mn

OMG Dottie I am laughing so hard I'm going to pee in my pants. I sure hope the firemen were a good looking bunch. Every time I take a bath I will be thinking of you. Your GK's will be laughing about this for years!! HEHE

�Posted by: Bratty Girl/Fl

cough, snicker, snort, please excuse me, I have a cold hehe, cough, choke, giggle. It's to bad they don't have that TV show 911 anymore or we may have got to see you on TV Dottie. Excuse me again, LOL ROFLMBO.

I usually take a shower instead of a tub bath because I have a bad knee where I broke it. Occasionally after working in the yard I like to soak and relax - but now I'll be thinking of you and scared to do it because I do have trouble getting out sometimes. LOL LOL LOL I haven't laughed this hard since reading the postings on the kt. It's a keeper. LOL ROFLMBO

Posted by: Dottie-IN

Actually I was laughing when I called them and laughing when they walked in the bathroom. What else could I do?

Yes, Damon one of them was a hunk and a half!

Frances, I know you always tell me to stay out of trouble, and I really do try, but it just seems to follow me around, you know?

No bumps, no bruises..except for my ego but it'll survive. My oven doesn't work so I can't bake them cookies, although I think that would be awfully nice to do so I'll just find a funny card somewhere and send it to them. Bet their wives won't have to come up with "I have a headache tonight, Honey" after this...for quite a while. LOL

Oh DOTTIE!!!! ROTFLMAO!!!!! That is priceless!!!!! LOL!!!!!I KNOW you were embarrassed, but, I can't help but laugh! I'm sorry....Wish I could have been there with a camcorder! LOL!

It makes my ankle problem seem minor in comparison!
I really wish I would have copied all your stories you have posted on here...would have made an interesting book! LOL!

Seriously, though...I really hope your land lady gets your shower in for you soon!

�Posted by: Hedy ONT

Oh Dottie, I know just what it is like. The last time I took a bath I had a really hard time getting out. There is just nothing there one can hold onto, I couldn't even turn around to get on my knees. I eventually made it, can't remember how but that was the last time I took a bath. I think the shower chair maybe next for me too.

But to be quite honest I had a good laugh at your expense too but only because you told it so well.
When you get that shower make sure you have a good bathmat in the tub because it sure gets slippery in there and a fall would be much worse the the embarrassment.

�Posted by: Debby-NY

Dottie - we take our eyes off you for a minute and see what happens. Enjoy having the hunk in your bath holding you, but I'm wetting my pants from this. Shower chair is definitely the way to go. Take care of yourself gf, we'd miss you if you got stuck permanently.

Oh that was the best story yet! As a home health nurse I have run into this problem often and made light hearted funnies with my clients but you have given me a good reason to just roar with laughter. Sorry you were so exposed :)

I read this right after you posted and was laughing so hard, I couldn't even respond! Main reason was because I was cleaning coffee off my desk...you should have at least posted a ~~WARNING~~ that this was side splitting funny!!! I'm just so glad you're okay!!!! Love ya!!!

�Posted by: Wendy IA

Oh Dottie... bless your heart!!! I have to admit, I laughed so hard about this story. I had e-mail it to my mom, because it sounds like something that would happen to her. I am so glad that you didn't get hurt. Just think, this story will be passed down for generations in your family...ha ha ha, and most likely all of ours. I think that the shower thing is a great idea.

�Posted by: Grannytoo AZ

Well I hope you're happy!!! I spilled coke all over my keyboard and DH had to shut the computer down and hook up the spare. He said no more Dottie grams for me. ROFLMBO LOL LOL LOL LOL

Oh Dottie you sure can tell a story. I want you to make sure you get one of the bathtub handle thingies that slips over the edge of the tub to hold onto when you're getting in and out of there, whether it's for taking a shower or tub bath. Tell your landlady you also want one of the grab bars put on the back wall. They're not very expensive and the owner should pay for it.

What am I going to do with you? You scare the beejeebers out of me. I'm so glad that you weren't hurt, anything but your pride that is. By the way, the lurker is laughing so hard he has tears coming down his cheeks. He said some women will do anything to meet a man. ROFLMBO hee hee hee

�Posted by: Marcia

Dottie, sorry for the embarrassment, but how funny! I needed the laugh, and you know I'm going to have to send the story to friends! Everyone's right. A shower chair or bench would be the way to go. Bet those firemen are going to get some miles out of this story!!!

�Posted by: ShelbaAZ

Dottie, You can write it like it is. I had a movie of the whole thing in my head as I was reading this post. Thanks for your wonderful humor. I loved your pot roast story, but this one takes the cake. I'm happy you are ok. Do I have to say I love your posts?

�Posted by: Pat in Cal Desert

Dottie, that is the greatest story I've heard in years. I live in a Sr. mobile home park & every time someone calls 911 we get a fire engine, paramedics & an ambulance. I swear every man in all 3 crews is young handsome & built like an athlete. Don't they have any old guys about ready to retire to send out? I think I would just sit in the tub till it & I dried off. Thanks for the laughs. LOL LOL LOL

ROFLMAO! I'm sorry Dottie, but the description,well..it's really funny. I bet it wasn't to you at the time. No more baths for you I am sure. Thank goodness you could call for help though. You could have been stuck and with your heart...I shudder to think what could have happened. Thanks for a really funny story. Thanks for sharing your most embarrassing moment.

�Posted by: Laura in CO

Oh, my dear, dear Dottie. This one takes the cake! I was at chat, and heard something about your firemen. They said go to the KT and read your post. Well, 3 bathroom trips later, I am here to say that you are the most wonderful story teller ever! I am hereby letting you know that I will come and stay with you, and (hopefully pull you out of the tub, with the GSs help) until you have the shower seat and shower installed.

I am soooooo happy that I didn't read this before I went to the estate sale, today, with the shower chair for $3. I would have just died! It was one of those deluxe models that swivels you out of the tub. My dear, Dottie, please let us help you through this pain and laughter.....We love you and will help you, if you need us.
PS - The farts will have to go, or I can guarantee that I will be on the floor with the GSs. Farts are just too funny for me.

�Posted by: Maw Kettle

Well it's too bad the cops didn't come too, so we could see this one on TV! I think Duckie & G-2 have the right ideas, for your own safety, & I wouldn't be too surprised if (I were you) if people stop & look when you walk down the street now! You'll be the 'talk of the town', the 'local celebrity' for weeks! LOL! You are just TOO much Lady! & While your landlady is having that shower put in, tell her to fix the stove too! ;) ~maw~

Bethster just called me in to the Living Room. The most amazing thing is on Nick-At-Nite. She's watching The Dick Van Dyke show and it is the episode that Laura gets her toe stuck in the faucet of the bathtub. When the identifying scene came on and we hear her voice come through the bathroom door saying, "I can't get out of the tub, I'm stuck," the whole Dottie experience started anew. Many tears of laughter. The timing was just way too funny!
�Posted by: Ellen--Western Wa

Dottie, you're a brave soul to tell your story! And you told it so well. I tried not to laugh too much.
But you did have me LOL!! Glad there was no injury.....except, as you said, to your ego. I haven't had a bath in over 25 years, just because I know I'd have difficulty arising from the tub. Thankfully, I've had shower facilities since then.LOL........Ellen

�Posted by: Danielle H-Alberta

Dottie, I'm so glad you're OK! But I'm still LMAO! I can sympathize though because the more pregnant I get, the harder it is to get out of the tub! And I have a bath every night after DH goes to bed. I actually thought about what would happen if I got stuck.. I'd be there until 5:30 the next morning when he'd get up to go to work! I'm just so glad that your GS were there to help! :) And now every time I have a hard time getting out of the tub, I'll think of you and your adventure!

Dottie, Dottie, I'm in pain from laughing at your story! Had to tell a few friends too! LOL. Now I don't feel so all alone, I told a story about almost flushing myself down the toilet, and getting stuck.

�Posted by: Diana IN

Dottie, I am LMAO. Ya should have let Elmer and Elmo come home. Then they could have helped pull you out of the tub. But then, you did say you have been looking for some hunks, didn't you? Heck of a way to meet some hunks. I am glad you are okay though.

I can understand your plight. I once had a shoulder rehab patient get stuck in a piece of clothing. She got the dress on, but could not get it off. She was stuck with it half way over her head. She had to call 911 as well. I have admit though your story was darn funny! Glad to hear that the only thing bruised was your ego :) Look at it this way, at least you got a shower hookup out of the deal. :)

And P.S. Frances - in that bulk email the other day, I backed it up to read who all you sent it to so I wouldn't duplicate it and spotted that Dottie The Cheater...thought you'd slip that one right past me, didn't you? Or was that Joy who sent it? Well, whoever sent it, I saw it!!

Dottie. How in the heck do you do it? You really had me laughing out loud right along with the others. I just know that you are bound and determined to be on COPs!!! They might have to put in those little blurred squares in certain parts for your story, but You're headed for COPs for sure. You didn't see a camera man hanging out did you? LOL. Thanks for sharing. It was sure fun of you to do that even though that had to be the MOST embarrassing position to be in.

�Posted by: Lynne-Mi

ROTFLMBO, This was so funny My family came out from where they were to find out what I was laughing about and I was only half way through the letter. As for your grandsons just remind them that you changed their diapers. LOL. Hope all is well you are one funny Lady!

�Posted by: Betty FL

Oh Dottie! what a great story you tell. I laughed so hard that my co-workers wanted to know what was going on. I read them the story, in between snorting and laughing, and now each of them have gone on their way to spread their version of the Dottie in the Tub Story. Thanks!

�Posted by: Linda from Richmond

Dottie, in addition to laughing my head off, I am dying to know how old these boys are. I imagine it's quite fun around your house. You're braver than I am. They'd just have to let me die. I could never have even let the boys help me. You're a great sport. Did you not think to have the boys bring you a gown or something to put over your head to cover you when you stood up? I would have died! LOL.

�Posted by: Brianna

Oh, Dottie! This line is a classic! - "I don't want to hear any more complaining and how you look in a bathing suit because no matter how bad it is, it can't be any worse than me sitting in the tub with NOTHING but a towel draped over me which I already know is going to have to come off."

I'll be thinking about you every spring when it's bathing suit buying time. Thanks for the laugh, made my day. I'm glad to hear you got a shower!

�Posted by: Sandra Maine

I'm glad you're alright. But I must tell you I laughed my butt off. I guess that's why I like taking a shower.

I was here in 2000,but i don't remember that story,must have been one of those days i skipped!!

That was sooooooooooooooo funny,i was literally LMAO,didn't think i was going to get control of myself for a few minutes there.This is one ofthose stories that will probably come to mind when i'm falling asleep,and make me laugh all over again.I'm glad she wasn't hurt,and i'm sure she's smiling down on all of us now knowing that she made our day once again.

Thanks for sharing that again.

Thank you for that. God, could there be anyone funnier.
I have to read this to a friend who is sooo down and out.

You people were something else back then. What a bunch of funny broads.

And it all could have been avoided if the tub had an entry door....

Puss the button on the door (front right side of this tub) and swings inward or slides sideways like a pocket door for easy ingress/egress. Many shapes, sizes, and door placements are available, search Google images for tub door.

These are a great boon for anyone who can't enter or exit a bathtub easily and so worth the cost.
