    Yup...when I had tenants before turning the duplex into a single family house, I had some tenants (nice young couple from Connecticut) that boogered up my septic tank. Luckily, just had to pump it out. She was a good housekeeper, but just dumped everything down the toilet bowl like she did in the city.

    Had to tell them "never flush anything you haven't eaten first".

    For you guys talking about using cough suppressants, STOP!

    This virus causes pneumonia, preventing a cough can literally kill you. Coughing helps clear the lungs of mucus. Stop coughing and see how that works out for you...

    I would think that an expectorant would be a better approach.

    Yes, along with lots of water.

    Go to youtube and look up deep breathing and coughing and chest percussion. They're simple, easy, and they work.

    Every time I had walking pneumonia the doc prescribed an expectorant (generally Robitussin) and plenty water.

    Sometimes and some times not.

    I once told him I cooked with butter, not massive amounts, just butter. He thought margarine was better. A few other things like this.
