The Roto-Rooter (The Short Story Collection Series) by Michael Priv.
This is a quippy, witty, satirical play on a man’s mid-life crisis. Brian is caught in the murk of his own failures, or certainly at least, his perceived failures. Swimming in self-guilt and self-loathing, he is surrounded by negative vibes at every turn. Bad goes to worse when he steps into his bathroom only to find his bathtub suddenly filling up with odorous excrement. He calls the Roto-Rooter guy to come fix it and what happens next is a surprise and an uplifting outlook for anyone having a bad day, or two. A fun read!
