    where do you think it's going?

    (I can't call the landlord until tomorrow and I'm not switching the innards on my own).

    I heard it's chasing the refrigerator.

    The toilet's running, Christ, shake the handle
    And the telephone's ringing and it's Mrs. Randall
    And where the hell are my goddamn sandals?
    Whaddya mean the dog chewed my left one?

    Tom Waits threadjack aside, if shaking the handle doesn't work you can take the tank cover off and push the plunger down to seal the drain. Also check to see that the chain hasn't fallen off the handle, which would render shaking the handle useless.

    Stan's on top of the refrigerator. Maybe it's trying to get him!

    I turned the water off, so technically it isn't running anymore. It's been an ongoing issue since I moved in almost two years ago. Normally when I jiggle the handle it stops running, but that didn't work tonight.

    Is the handle reset all the way up after it flushes? If not, that can cause it to run and irritate the crap out of you.

    Also, pulling the plunger up tends to get the toilet to pipe down.

    It wouldn't be running if Prince Albert was on the can.

    Or something like that. ;D
