Yeah. We had a "mystery" clogger for a while. Nobody would admit it was them. Except I knew it was my daughter, because a parent can read their kids easily. So next time there was a brick in there, I showed them both how to unclog a toilet. That let her save face because her brother was in there too. And they both learned a life skill. Hasn't been a problem since.

BTW, I think plungers are gross. I prefer a bucket of water poured in from shoulder height. It's cleaner. I taught them both methods. Besides, if you plug up a friend's toilet, they might not have a plunger in there, but they probably have a water tight trash can you can fill from the tub spout.
