This afternoon I flushed my employee access pass down the toilet. Whoops.

It was an accident, honestly!
I was about to leave… I picked up the access pass from the ledge that I’d put it on, and it slipped from my fingers, bounced from the edge, and of course the same law of gravity that makes sandwiches land upside down, inevitably pulled it towards the toilet bowl, just as the whirl of water was starting to slow down.

I had a split second to think “This can’t be happening!” and then realising “I hope it isn’t too large and heavy – hope it flushes and doesn’t remain at the bottom, where someone will have to fish it out”. Luckily it disappeared.

I thought this sort of thing only happened in fiction.
