Everybody Poops

DISCLAIMER: I am not directing this at any one person. I know at least 5 people that feel this way (opposite of me), so do not feel that this is directed at any one of you specifically. It's just that I noticed lately that I know so many who feel this way and I wanted to bring it up. Again, this is not directed at anyone in particular. Thanks.


Public vs. private bathrooms. What’s the issue here?

Why are there people who can not, for the life of them, use a public restroom? To do either or all business?

I’m not calling anyone out and I’m not making fun. I seriously want to know.

See, I have NO problem, whatsoever, using a public bathroom or even (gasp, shudder) a port a potty.

I’m not saying I ENJOY using a port a potty because I don’t. Like most people, it’s saved as a last resort.

However, when I gotta go, I gotta go. I’m not one to make myself miserable by withholding either business.

I feel 100% better to let it all go whenever I feel the urge.

I’ve heard people say because of all the germs, or they’re afraid to catch things, or they hate the smell (either that they give off or the smell in the bathroom before they use it), or the sounds or whatever.

That’s why bathrooms were invented. To USE them. And, they were not only invented to go #1 either. If that was the case, then there would only be urinals in the men's and some sort of urinal thingie for women. Not full on toilets that can handle all your business.

As for germs or catching things, well, I’ve been on this earth for almost 31 years now and except for an abnormal pap smear right after I gave birth (which my doc said was normal), I’ve never had any diseases or illnesses in any of my nether region areas. NEVER!!!!! No yeast infection, no UTI, nothing.

Other than an occasional cold and my sinus problems, I’ve never had health issues.

As many public bathrooms and port a potties as I’ve used (believe me, during Mardi Gras time, I’ve USED a LOT), the odds are that I would have caught something by now if there was truly a common danger in catching something.

As for the smell or sound, get over it. It’s natural. If God (or Buddha or whomever you believe created man and his body) didn’t intend for it to be that way, I don’t think it would be the way it is. Who cares? Everyone poops. I poop, Mariah Carey poops, Donald Trump poops, the Dali Lama poops, for those that believe in Jesus, I’m sure he pooped, too. It’s a fact of life and perfectly natural. Oprah even poops!

I do not want to be uncomfortable with holding in anything. Why would you choose to be bloated and uncomfortable?

I guess I just don’t understand.

My mom’s like this. I mean, if she really has to go, she will. But as for #2, forget it. She can go in a hotel room and if we’re staying at someone’s house for an extended period of time but if she’s at the mall or somewhere like that? Forget it.

I don’t know. I guess it’s just me.

What do y’all think?

7 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:


I agree with you 100%! My wife and I go back and forth about this when it comes up.

I mean, I avoid them when I have the option, but I don't schedule my life around that avoidance, and when I gotta go, I'm not picky. I mean, think about what you're doing... not exactly clean and pretty, is it?

I think this calls for a poll-- make everyone vote up or down. lol

Mama Dawg

Maybe I should do that.

Let me see if I can figure that out.

I'm like you. I'll avoid 'em if I have the option (like if it's between a port a potty right there and a house with a toilet 2 blocks away, I'll take the house) but if not, I could care less.

Call me weird, but I find posts about poop, well, hilarious. Some of the best laughter I have ever had has involved conversations around poop, or not pooping, or where to poop, or what it looks like, etc etc. Only with the closest of friends and family of course.

I prefer to poop in the privacy of my own home. However, if nature calls when I am out and about, then I will do my business in the closest public bathroom. I try to be discreet but there have been times where it has been impossilbe (and involuntary). I am so laughing as I type this. My hubby thinks I am crude when it comes to poop-talk.

Mama Dawg

I love it. I've had some weird poop talks, too. However, my weirdest had to be when I had to show my now ex-husband one after I had gone. It involved something way too embarrassing to post here.

Dirty White boy

You should see some of the people at the softball field when they have to go in the porta potty! Sheesh just get in and get it done! Stop freaking out about touching the handle on the OUTSIDE.
