Things I Don't Get #346

People who can poo in public restrooms like it's no big deal. I have public poo stage fright. I've been known to go home at lunch if the moment arises. I can't handle the idea of someone sitting three feet away from me, separated only by a metal stall, while I have a bowel movement. I also fear ridicule if there is a stink or a loud plop. Or a fart for that matter. Lord knows that a plop or a fart coming from another stall will send me into a fit of elementary school style giggles. And stink will send me into a gagging fit.

Who knew that poo could be so complicated?

I normally play cell phone games or read an article while using the work restroom. I have also been known to compete in a game of Battleshits once or twice with an anonymous stall buddy.

It totally weirds me out too. But I've found recently that I just don't care and when nature calls I must GO! (I figure I won't see those people again any way)

Pooing at work - whole other story!

i prefer to use chelsea handler's term of shuhdoobie to describe poo.

and i don't have a problem with it...until the guy next to me starts to go. ugh, it's so gross.

I don't mind so much... I'm getting paid to catch up on the news using my VCast phone. As long as the air is fresh when I walk in, I'm all for it.

Read once on a penny pincher's website, that she trained her family to have their bowel movements at school and work, so they could save on the cost of TP. Now THAT is a little extreme, but as Heidi said, when nature calls, take care of it... or we'll start calling you sh!tbrick.

I can not, can not go number 2 in a public restroom. Nature calling or not, I cannot do it. Not will not, can not. It won't happen. Its like a shy bladder but with your booty.

Ugh - I hate when I'm at work and I have to go. I live too far to go home, so sometimes I have to wait it out...so painful! Or lunchtime is good, when no one is around - get in and out without anyone noticing :)

One guy at work fell asleep while on the toilet once...that's the rumor anyway. There's another guy that always brings a newspaper into the bathroom, so you always know what he's up to. I have to remember never to read the paper in his office...yuck!
