  1. It’s a lie! I wasn’t barricading myself! I got locked inside my bathroom and couldn’t get out! I called Chaverim, but they told me they don’t make bathroom calls.
    It’s not bad enough I had to spend several hours in solitary confinement inside a bathroom, but I’m also labeled a barricader!
    Please update this post with the aforementioned info.

  2. Not nice to joke about Chaverim! They most definitely DO help with bathroom lock-ins! As well as anything else you need. Chaverim deserves more recognition and appreciation! Please find a better way to joke around. That was poor taste.

  3. Tzippy, it would seem that all the jokes about a possible armed and dangerous individual who required the intervention of SWAT is in poor taste, especially in light of recent events in Texas.
