Ok I walked into my house today and I saw my bathroom was totally flooded with about 1 2 inches of water. My Mom left the water running in the faucet and it overflowed. My Mom has an acting class so she refuses to call a plumber meanwhile if she doesn't call a plumber right now the water will seep through the floor into the basement and we'll have to pay upwards of $5,000 to get it fixed. We don't have that money and we'll be in huge debt. I have a shop vac downstairs, but I don't know how to use it. Right now she's mopping up the floor and it's not helping at all! What do I do?

Why can't YOU call a plumber? Use towels and go get some nappies or incontinence pads in the meantime. I'm serious, we have them for emergency flooding where I work and they're verrrry absorbent

Bucket the water into your bathtub, or toilet, and go from there.

It's too much to use sponges for and the shop vac will blow a circuit. I can't call a plumber because it costs money and she won't let me.

I don't understand this part, if her acting class is more important than her house being flooded why doesn't she call a plumber, explain the problem on the phone and leave you there to open the door for the plumber.
Also while you're waiting, get some buckets/cup/plastic containers/anything with a thin lip and start shoveling as much of the water into the sink as you can.
Find some towels to build a small barrier for the water if there's danger in it flowing anywhere else and move anything electrical in the basement that might be damaged.

So she wants the floor to cave in does she? Do you not have any insurance on this sort of thing?
