DH is surprised.

Aibu for not having any strong feelings about this?

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Sat 16-Feb-13 15:37:28

So bored of this subject.

People poo. So?

The Queen poos. The pope poos. The Dalai Lama poos.

I think the reason a lot of nicer men (not counting those with unfortunate issues, who are of course excused) wouldn't want to consider doing this in someone else's house is because they know on some level that it's territorial.

It is - seriously. I mean it doesn't have to mean that, but it is on some basic level a marking of territory. Just ask foxes, they won't come near your hens if your husband pisses round the perimeter. And just ask people whose EA ex partners come to their house, poo in their toilet, then take the kids for the weekend.

So there's more to it than just social horror.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Sat 16-Feb-13 15:47:53

No there isn't because as humans, we don't shit to mark territory. We flush it away.

SoWhatIfImWorkingClass Sat 16-Feb-13 15:53:37

As long as he flushed, what is the big deal?

When you gotta go, you gotta go!

Well I disagreewith tta ariel - I think some people do use it in that way though they probably aren't aware of doing so. Not on a conscious level.
How else do you explain the reluctance to go in someone else's house, as expressed by a lot of people's DHs on here?

Okay-so when we have building work done soon, I am assuming the guys will use the loo. Not usual practice?

sweetkitty Sat 16-Feb-13 16:06:26

We've recently had an extension built so loads of builders in and out the house, they would sheepishly come and ask to use the toilet, nice of them to ask but of course they can use the toilet, they are human beings and when you need you need. Would hate to think someone needed to go and didn't ask. I used to leave the door unlocked for them when I went out.

The Tesco delivery drivers even asked on occasion, it doesn't bother me, squirt of bleach and an antibacterial wipe job done, which I do every day with a toddler anyway.

The Queen poos???????

ShowOfHands Sat 16-Feb-13 17:26:52

My DH used to manage a hotel and seriously, you'd be surprised how many people poo in places other than the toilet. Poos in kettles, sinks, the bath, mugs, placed neatly atop the television, in the bed, in the bedside table. Anywhere really. Was a weekly thing, having to depoo a room. Hideous people.

I used to work in TK Maxx too whilst studying. People were always pooing in the changing room.

I found a huge poo on a bookshelf at work (a hospital ward).

Someone put it there but it was a mystery never solved.

captainmummy Sat 16-Feb-13 17:42:31

can barely beleive that people poo in those places, Showofhands! Honestly.

I had an extension last year and it involved moving some drains. I wanted a big poo one saturday morning, so thought i'd get on quick before the builders came. Was a nice big, squishy one. Went outside and the young builder guy was crouched over the open draincover, doing something i don't knwo what. He can't have missed it float past.

I didn't knwo whether to ignore it altogether or blame it on the kids.

TheOriginalLadyFT Sat 16-Feb-13 17:57:23

showofhands there's only one response to to your post. WTAF!?

Shitting in the changing rooms? In the bedside tables?

<boak>

Ooh excellent a poo threadgrin

allthatglittersisnotgold Sat 16-Feb-13 18:02:29

I once had an ikea delivery. Guy was here for 5 mins max. Asked to use the loo and did a poo. I wasn't happy. If a workman is here for a job fine, but come on 5 mins! Then I have to have a strangers arse and stink in my bathroom. Not on.

Geranium3 Sat 16-Feb-13 18:07:19

exactly how i feel, allthatglitters! Gross

DonderandBlitzen Sat 16-Feb-13 18:12:57

ShowOfHands shock God why on earth do people do that? I never realised it was so widespread that it would happen every week! It's not like they get to see the reaction of the people who find the poo. I did once see a big blood clot on the window sill of a loo. [barf]

I had to poo in a hay barn once. I had a horse that was kept at a place with no human facilities. Actually looking back I'm not sure why I didn't just go down to the far corner of the field...guess it was warmer. Anyhoo, I picked it up afterwards on a spadeful of hay and threw it over a wall.

MariusEarlobe Sat 16-Feb-13 18:21:41

I worked in a medical legal office with secure entrance, someone smeared poo all over the walls in the ladies loo......

Thingiebob Sat 16-Feb-13 19:39:22

I don't care who does what in my loo tbh. I am quite happy for workmen to come upstairs and use the facilities.

I just wanted to start a poo thread because I find the hysteria on MN about loos and poos hilarious.

determinedma Sat 16-Feb-13 20:21:12

This really bothers people? Its a toilet. People shit in it. Get over it!

cozietoesie Sat 16-Feb-13 20:26:10

It's not what they do, determined. It's who they are. I have problems with strangers in my house and I'm sure others may have also.

TheOriginalLadyFT Sat 16-Feb-13 20:27:16

See I just don't get the smearing poo on walls thing. Wouldn't have to pick it up to do that? Surely no sane person could fish a poo out of a loo with their bare hands and smear it about?

Some of these stories are vile.

But next time the plasterer comes round, I will be sure to alert him to the fact that I am totally fine with him laying a cable in my loo, so long as he opens the window afterwards grin

Thingiebob Sat 16-Feb-13 20:28:32

It was actually a plasterer who pooed in my loo.
