Let's talk about poo

Warning: this post contains a lot of talk about poo.

I'll admit that whenever I'm in work, I spend a fair bit of time in the loo (toilet). This is mainly because I seem to have a tiny bladder, and whenever I try to drink water I need to go almost constantly. On a somewhat sneakier note though, we're not allowed to use our mobiles in work, and the toilet trips do provide an opportunity to check my messages, and maybe send a particularly important text. I'm sure everyone does it.

Anyway, that's not really my point. This week it seems, I've been going into the toilets after someone has had a poo (purely coincidentally, I'm not some sort of poo fetishist). Now, I realise not everyone is as neurotic as me (I refuse to go for a number two in work) and fair play to them if they need to do this and can. I don't mind the smell too much, in fact a few people open the window too so that's quite nice of them. What I do mind is walking into a toilet cubicle and seeing poo smeared around the toilet bowl. Have these people never heard of a toilet brush? There is in fact one sitting right next to the toilet and it wouldn't take much to use it. All I'm asking for is a little consideration, it isn't nice cleaning up someone elses mess.

And I thought women were meant to be the clean and tidy ones...

Yes, it's very annoying. Especially, as you said, if the brush is right there!. Who wants to use a loo smeared with poo? Yuk.
Maybe they should put a sign up that says:'Please clean your own poo from the loo!'

In a public toilet... Are you kidding me?

There's someone at my work who does exactly the same. I'm sure ASBOs are given out for less these days!

I definitly do the whole texting in the toilet thing.

It's kinda hard with only one hand though...

That's not half as bad as people who think nothing of using public conveniences withouth flushing afterwards.

Appalling.

I just try to avoid public bathrooms in general.

It amazes me how grown-up people who have full-time, well-paid jobs can go to their workplaces and still a) not wash up after themselves in the kitchen, b) steal your food from the fridge, and now c) leave poo willy-nilly in the loo!

Boo! Shame!
