Haha...not really...but maybe?

It's bubbling and making gurgling noises...what can cause a toilet to do that? It's really freaking me out!

I've called maintenance, but knowing that guy it could take days :/

Bump! It sounds like something is trying to crawl out of there!

Mine did that when there was a blockage in my sewer lines from roots getting in the old clay pipes.

Yeah there is a blockage somewhere down the line. Try to keep usage of water to a minimum.

That happened to us, turned out a pipe under the house had a crack in it, which was letting air in and the toilet couldn't flush and would bubble. My husband had to crawl under the house and replace it. Fixed it right up

In that toilet or the whole house?

It's probably a baby alligator taking up most of the space and its wiggling around causing the disturbance.

Be careful when you pee!

Sounds like a blockage. My moms house would do that real bad. She didn't think anything of it, she said it was probably just air bubbles in the line or something. One day her washing machine overflowed into the laundry room and kitchen. The blockage was so bad that the volume of water was too much to flow through the line. It was a huge wad of roots that had grown through the line and tp.

You can use the water. I would try to avoid anything that uses lots of water at once. Like washing dishes or clothes. I wouldn't flush tp or tampons.
