WW - My Toilet Phobia

Airport Bathrooms.



Just to make it clear, this is the #1 reason why I won't travel unless someone threatens me with my job. A "flight delay" doesn't just mean you don't get to take off on time, it means you are sentenced to indefinite usage of a public toilet. May God have mercy on your soul.


I want to encourage you to scroll down just a weeee bit farther to see the announcement I made yesterday...please help if you can.



Thanks again to Angie
for another ragin' Wordful Wednesday...






Also Thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom for "Wordless" Wednesday...I always have such a problem being wordless...

I don't blame you, that is just gross.

Under the Influence said...

I hate ALL public toilets and will do everything in my power to hold it until I get home or to my hotel room.

Brenda said...

I've seen worse, but I have also learned that allowing my self to get a little dehydrated avoids this trauma. You can hydrate back up pretty quickly :)

Hootin' Anni said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, don't get me started on my public toilet rants!!! Let me just say, one time I walked into one, and there stood a naked gal...washing her body/hair, and you name it...right there at the sinks. She was homeless I'm sure, but just think of all the 'nasties' .....ewwwwwwwwwww!!


My Wordful is ...

THE NIÑA, THE PIÑA, & THE SANTA MARIA....all three in Corpus Christi. Come by for a visit, wont' you? Happy Wednesday.

jill jill bo bill said...

Don't you know the guy in the stall next to you was thinking what a sicko you were for snapping a picture of god-knows-what in the toilet? I hope you explained the toilet was empty and you weren't doing a photoshoot of terds.

Cascia said...

Public toilets can be nasty. It looks like you found a really bad one here too.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Yeah, those are gross. But NOTHING is worse than a port-o-potty. I REFUSE to go in one of those. I will go in an empty Coke bottle before I sit on a hole in a plastic box that contains everyone else's shit and piss that has been there before.

sheila said...

I'm right there with ya! There's not enough Purell in the world for public toilet use. lol. I have to go REAL bad before using! lol

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

I am so with you!!! I will have nightmares foreverandeverandever now that you have encapsulated it into a picture-form. *shivers*

Tanya said...

ewwwwww! you're right. public toliets are the pits. well hmm... I guess it's one step up from... well, a pit. :)

pam said...

That is not the worst I have seen. Made me throw up in my mouth a little though!

Beadiful Things said...

You think that's bad? Try doing it with two kids, 3 and 5. The 3 year old likes to touch EVERYTHING. ~shudder!~

Jillene said...

Public toilets=NASSSSSSSTY!! I can't do them unless it is an upmost emergency.

angie said...

There's just something about toilets today.....:)

jsprik said...

eeewwwwww....that is so nasty!!! i detest public bathrooms!!

Kristina P. said...

I don't even use toilet seat covers. I like to risk my life on a daily basis.

Jenners said...

At least the water was clean!!!!! I've seen worse ... much worse. We actually have a photo somewhere of a public toilet that someone left unflushed with a -- how to say this nicely? -- "big log" in it. Ick. And I still have a recurring dream where I am stuck in a public bathroom and all the toilets are just clogged with disgusting stuff and I really have to go and I keep running and running but they are all gross.

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

I wholeheartedly agree!

I think what you are doing for St. Baldricks is wonderful.

My mother is a hairdresser and every year, she participates in a similar event for making wigs of human hair for cancer ridden children. Rock on...

Tenakim said...

digusting- I needed the appetite kill today- my big butt THANKS YOU!!!

Brandy said...

I knew I wasnt the only one who hated to use public restrooms!

Soxy Deb said...

That's actually one of the cleanest public bathrooms I've seen. And that's pathetic in and of itself.

Heather @ Not a DIY Life said...

Ewwwww...

Normally I say "thanks for sharing" when I visit WW posts. But, um, yeah. I can't say that. That's just nasty!

Bee and Rose said...

Blech, yuck and more blech!
Public toilets are biohazards!

(also, did a linky to your post from yesterday in my blog this morning...hope it helps:)

Sharlene said...

i had to get over my phobia when I got a bladder disorder. Still gross though.

Rachel said...

i saw this and immediately thought about the "secret signal" that politician was talking about. dirty bathroom + secret signal = even scarier.

John, Jessica and Emma said...

Oh I HATE public bathrooms!! People are just dirty... I go out of my way to not use public restrooms!!

Jessica

Elaine A. said...

My favorite part of this post is how you aksed for us to scroll down a "weeee bit" farther. I love a good punny like that!

crunchiemummy said...

Ewwwww, I hate public toilets too. Port-a-loos are the worst! Got to love toilet seat covers though!

Jenni Jiggety said...

One of my very funniest bathroom stories happened in the airport bathroom in San Juan. LOL! Craziness.

Clare said...

that is sick, i think it is just boys bathrooms:)

Ali said...

I can remember taking my potty trained 2 yr old to the air show and he really had to use the porta-potty. I REALLY didn't want to go in that thing so I kept trying to convince him to go in his pull-up! He wouldn't do it!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I may or may not be known to use a portable potty seat myself.

Lee said...

I really hate public restrooms.
Especially at walmart.
Walmart seems to have toilets from hell.

Natalie said...

I have serious issues & phobias dealing with public restrooms. I refuse to use them. It can make for some interesting days, but I HATE them. They scare the sh*t out of me.. no pun intended.

Twisted Serenity said...

ewe. germs. yuck!
I hate public bathrooms!

jill jill bo bill said...

Okay, just in case they don't have clocks in Vegas or you lost your watch on a bad roll: IT'S THURSDAY!!! Get with it. I require a LOT more from my stalkers. Unless you are in a fetal position somewhere crying because you can't watch my every move, post something or I will kick your ass.

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
