When disembarking after a turn, it is common practice to brief your reliever of the general situation onboard by way of a Handover Note. In the handover, you write what you consider to be important for your reliever to know in order to perform the duties of his position. My reliever's name is Pan Tao. We call him Tony. This is what I wrote in my handover to him:
Welcome onboard Second Officer Tony Pan!
It's quite hard to flush the toilet in our cabin. I mean, you have to use both hands and push really hard. The repairman has looked at it and made some adjustments but lately it has gotten even worse. However, there is a trick, a special technique you can apply to flush the toilet. Simply follow this procedure:
A few days before you must eat proper, healthy food in order to charge your body with energy for the attempt. Do not diet or perform strenuous exercise during this time as it might deplete your energy reserves and thereby diminishing your chances of success. Strenuous activities include sexy time, my friend. Women are well known for their succubus qualities so it is best to stay away.
A few hours before you must try and center, find harmony. In order to fully flush, you must gather all your chi from within and let it converge at the very essence of your being. It also helps to pray a little to the God of your choice. Myself, I use Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. I find that he gives me the divine presence and "oomph" I need to achieve complete flushness. Now, I know you're Chinese so you'll probably go for Buddha. I'm not saying don't try it, but I doubt it will do any good. The guy is just too mellow.
At the actual time of the flushing, make sure you are alone and have a banana nearby for quick protein recharge afterwards. I also put an isotonic beverage in the shower to gulp down during the Post-Flush Scrub and Cleansing (PFSC). You'll loose copious amounts of fluids sweating of course, but you should also mentally prepare for a time of intense crying as the emotions flow over you in the hours after the event.
Or you can call the repairman again so he can take a look at it. That's also an option, I suppose.
By the way, I changed the chart correction procedure quite radically and threw away all your stuff. But you'll figure it out, I'm sure.
Best of luck!
I was going to write some more about the actual work related stuff but I don't have time. How do people find time to do stuff?
