I hate plumbing repairs part II and don't get married

Just needing to vent.
Per my advice, I told the wife it's not a good idea to dump the shredded chicken down the disposal. Well, she did anyway thinking if she keeps the disposal running, it'll pass through. Now, both sinks (double kitchen sink) and the bathroom sink (on the same wall other side) are plugged up. I removed all pipes under the sink to clear and confirm blockage and broke one side of the sink pipe from drain. Therefore, the drain needs to be snaked. The good news is all other drains are fine and I assume blockage is mainly in the wall before it hits the main drain. I'm also glad I have a plumber friend who will lend me his snake, but I hate snaking. It's such a freaking mess. Other than the cost of a new drain pipe, it'll simply cost me time away from what plans I had for tomorrow.
When will women start listening and stop thinking they know what's best when it comes to not only things they know little about but things we men know more about. You single guys, don't do it. Stay single. Women make you age faster.
BTW, anyone know why Eternal September news isn't working?

Actually, last time I looked there were only +/- 1000 active ip addresses in the entire country, so your average script kiddie could bring their entire internet before breakfast.

cleaning them (the others being coffee grounds, ice cubes, and orange peels).
An eggshell is far too fragile to jam a disposer.
Unless you're dumping ostrich eggs in your disposer, maybe...

You are correct that it won't jam the disposal, but too much can clog the drain. We just put the coffee grounds on the compost pile or in the trash, same with egg shells.

I've seen one that was done that way and a 15" wrench onto the Allen just bent the Allen wrench. It is akin to a dime in a door jam - maybe a penny. Can't open the door since it needs to move in a radius and is stopped.

FWIW, the manual for the disposal reccommends putting chicken bones down the thing, apparently on the idea that they'll scrape gunk off the cutters and other parts of the mechanism as they go thru.

No - they haven't bothered to post server status for years. I assume they had to perform maintenance of some kind - that happens every few months, and they're usually down for 3 or 4 hours when they do.

I doubt it. The eccentricity of an eggshell makes that pretty unlikely for all but the tiniest fragments of shell.

I doubt that too. Geometry argues against it, and so does the fragility of an eggshell.

I'm calling bullshit on this. There's no way an eggshell jammed a disposer tight enough to bend a steel wrench. Eggshells just aren't that strong. There must have been something else in there besides, maybe a fragment of bone.

Eggshells jamming a disposal would defeat the phrase "walking on eggshells".
I agree, I cannot nor will not accept the argument of an eggshell's ability to jam a disposal. If so, I would have had jams continuously for the past several decades since I always throw eggshells in the disposal when in fact, I never had one.
