RUN THE HOT WATER IN THE SINK

You will need some heated water to fill the toilet bowl. However, the sink will most likely need a while to heat up and give you water that is sufficiently hot to be helpful. In this situation, get it running at maximum heat.

REACH FOR THE LIQUID HAND SOAP

Check out the bathroom for some liquid soap while waiting for the water to heat up. When you find some, pour a considerable measure of it into the toilet bowl. It will serve as a lubricant for whatever is causing the clog.

DO IT ALL AGAIN, THEN FLUSH

FORCE IT ALL DOWN

In the event that the toilet is still clogged,  you may need to deal with this clog physically. Reach the toilet brush and begin poking down into the drain hole.

However, if these steps won't work, it's better to approach your friend for a plunger quietly. Though it will be a little embarrassing, both you and your friend will most likely be better off in the end.
