Default Toilet overflowing

How is it even possible to overflow like that. I flush, there is nothing in it to back things up and yet the water rises. Every other toilet I have seen the water rises and stops in time unless you flush a second time. No not this one. ****ing **** water all over the floor.

I am now committed to using the backyard to do my business. This has happened too many times. What a way to start the weekend.

That sux like an Electro-lux. Must be a blockage just under the toilet, I'm thinking. Also the tank flapper sounds like it needs attention. Stays open too long.

You need to crack out the plunger, or it may be time to snake the line

Get a clog buster and flush from the outdoor clean out. I had this happen before.

Well, there might be a blockage beyond the toilet itself but the issue for me would be that it keeps flowing. My toilets have the courtesy to stop before flowing over. In fact, if mine get clogged (because my kids have superhuman poo), I usually flood that bowl to the brim and usually the mass of water and pressure take over.
I would look at a new toilet. A good American Standard is not terribly expensive. I put a big ol' jobber in the master bath, I call it the PooMaster 5000. The old one was this little round dinky jobber. Nothing stops up this one, and it's oval shaped so its easy to shove your junkbox through the hole.

18 M hydrochloric acid. will destroy the toughest clogs and any metal parts & lines in contact.
