Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


So the other day I was running late , so instead of using the bathroom at the local big box store(Lowes bathrooms are spotless around here), I decide to hold it, since the HO told me that she wouldnt be home to let me in. I get to the job and by now I am ready to explode. I dont see a car in the driveway , so I knock and let myself in....To my surprise, not only is the HO home but so are her 3 kids...... Well I didnt even think about it. I said hello , and went into the bathroom , and after about 3 minutes I washed up and left. No exhaust fan, no airfreshener....The teenage daughter is standing outside the bathroom waiting to brush her her......:blink :
How many times has this happened to you????????

Never. I get up a tad early so I'm all done by time I leave.

Of course, I have been caught watering shrubs on occasion.

Re: Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


Almost never an issue for me, although this last summer had to go #2 in the clients house. She worked from home and was downstairs.

For some strange reason the toilet plugs, although there was not a lot of paper or anything else.

Had to ask for a plunger.

Client brings me the cheapest plunger you've ever seen. Looks about 20 years old and the rubber has a tear. After about 30 minutes of attempting to get things flowing, had to ask the client for help.

By that time, the contents of the bowl were a real disaster. I felt like walking off the job. The fact that the client said, "Its only s#%&, and I raised 3 boys," helped a little.

One of the most embarrassing events of my life.

This episode included 2 courtesy flushes...... they didnt help....The point is if I thought she was going to be home I would have completed my routine at Lowes....Its like clockwork. Once when I get up, then I have breakfast, and then a walk around Lowes or whereever and then its time.

Re: Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


I'm glad you shared that. I thought I was the only one that ran into encounters like the one you described.

Like many of us here, I try to handle my business before I leave the house. But there are those days when my digestive system doesn't start working until I get out to the main highway. Any time I have an unexpected "episode" I'll excuse myself and make a trip to the local gas station or retail store. But the last time I got caught off guard, I was in the HO's basement while they were upstairs on the second level in their bedroom. It was a situation where I didn't want to disturb them but I didn't want to leave without telling them so I handled my business hoping that they didn't come downstairs looking for me.

Not that they would have had a problem with me using their restroom but sometimes my poor eating habits results in freckles and skid marks around the bowl and without anything to clean it, I didn't want to embarrass myself. I was also a little nervous about their children. The HO has 4 home schooled children between the ages of 3 and 7 and they are very inquisitive and curious so I really didn't want to be in a position where I had to explain myself or have the kids run and tell their parents, "Mr Ted left doo-doo in the toilet!"

Re: Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


I've done some pretty creative urinating before.

Typically if I'm going to cause an explosion though I do my best to get to somewhere that where people get paid to clean the bathroom.

I did work with a guy for a landscaping company though, that every day almost would knock on the door of the house and ask to use the bathroom. I thought that a bit forward for the guys that are working outside the house, but he didn't seem to mind.

Re: Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


Sometimes the normal flow of the day doesn't go to plan. Heck, just last week I met the little lady for lunch at a new restaraunt. Within 15min we were both on the lookout for clean bathrooms! If at all possible, I prefer to go at home, but it just wasn't happening!

This is the most "messed up" thread I've read on here yet. But I'm laughing my butt off because I can relate!

Re: Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


I was in HD about a year ago. I just had lunch and needed to go bad. I have always used up way to much paper and block my own toilet up often. My little trick to to fill the pan right up to the rim and right as it gets to the edge the blockage clears. In HD it didn't quite happen like that. I done about 2-3 flushes and got it right close to the rim. I pulled down the lever a little bit to lift the flap a tad to let the water though just like at home. We the dam thing done a full flush and my logs were all over the floor

Re: Uh Ohh....Gotta Go!!!!!


I won't get too graphic, but I was on a job with several other guys doing a window replacement a while back.

HOs wife was in and out all morning and I was ready to evacuate unintentionally.

Well, she steps out and walks next door, so I jet to the powder room.

Let's just say that the air quality was severely compromised by the time I left.

Anyway, one of the other guys heads in there moments after I leave, without setting the fart fan on.

Just as he turns to expedite Plan B, the HOs wife walks back in and sees him leaving the powder room.

Timing is absolutely everything.
