We've all been there.
You come home from a night out, perhaps you had a fair amount to drink, and you really need go. So you speed-walk to the bathroom, turn on the light, and get ready for that blessed release only to find that your toilet has vanished.
Ok, so maybe that isn't such a universal situation after all.
But if was going to happen to anyone, then it seems fitting that it would happen to social media queen and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen.
Known for her humorous posts, Teigen was clearly the perfect victim for this mystery. And she made the most of it in a viral Twitter thread.
First she gave a little backstory:
I got home today and ran to go peepee and you know when you’re so close to the bathroom so you kind of release beca… https://t.co/MkPq8zaVCc— christine teigen (@christine teigen)1516861782.0
Then she tweeted the photographic evidence to back up her claims. And sure enough, there is no toilet in sight. Just a sad, out-of-place toilet paper holder and a large empty space:
like there was no toilet https://t.co/CIn3Vdy1P9— christine teigen (@christine teigen)1516861954.0
Naturally, everyone wanted to know what happened next. I mean, Teigen had limited options, and time was of the essence:

Perhaps more people have been in this situation than previously thought:

Or other similar bathroom mishaps, for the matter:

And while some were quick to judge Teigen, it's important to keep in mind that she's very pregnant right now. And pregnant women are known to have to pee approximately every two minutes:

@LOatheANDbehold @AuriTheMoonFae @chrissyteigen I'm not sure drunk people have small inner people kicking their bladders— fi 🐝 (@fi 🐝)1516863580.0
But then the question centered on the more pressing issue: what exactly happened to Teigen's toilet? It can't have simply vanished, right?

And with that, Twitter was on the case, offering oh-so-helpful theories as to where the toilet might have gone:

But just as soon as everyone was ready to commit to an outlandish conspiracy theory, John Legend finally weighed in with the deets:

So there you have it. The great toilet caper has been solved. And that contractor would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those pesky Twitter users!
But it was entertaining while it lasted:
