One time, quite inexplicably, the toilet bowl suddenly broke down, and we couldn’t flush the toilet.
I went to the intercom and reported the matter and the police responded with an ‘ok, ok alright’.
After 2 hours, they never came.
My cellmates and I still took a shit after lunch though. Because you know ... we needed to.
So I went to the intercom again.
This time they told us to pour water into the toilet bowl to try to flush down the shit. However, that method wasn’t as effective as we had hoped for.
So my cellmates and I waited eagerly for the policemen to come, as the pervasive smell of shit, permeated the cell.
It took the police more than 14 hours, before they repaired it.
