A collection of some Redditors‘ stories
Toilets, and specifically public toilets, can be a set of a lot of stories. Many are weird, others funny but often remain untold.
The site georgetakei collected the most interesting posts from Reddit taken from the answers to a question asked by the Redditor RuffNBoy.
At the theater
“At the theater, I work at I was cleaning the men’s restroom and in one of the stalls was an open condom wrapper, a tiny empty bottle of the nacho cheddar seasoning we sell, and the seasoning scattered near the corner on the floor.”
The hotel maid
“I used to be a hotel maid. Cleaning one room I found two things in the bathroom garbage can: a used condom and a whole pickle.”
Taking a dump
“I was taking a dump at a movie theater and a little kid climbed under the stall and grabbed my foot. I screamed and kicked that kid so hard right in the face just out of sheer instinct. He cried. His dad said, “That’s what you get Gavin.”
The fully naked man
“I walked in and my eyes were immediately assaulted by a fully naked man running a stick of deodorant up and down his crack.”
Gas station bathroom
“Gas station bathroom in the middle of nowhere. Not only did this bathroom have a bathtub but there was a fully dressed and made-up mannequin in the tub. Very jarring.”
“I once stopped at a gas station on a road trip and the bathroom was full of dolls…. Staring with their little painted eyes….”
“Two people were having sex in the handicapped stall. I was seven.”
A clogged urinal
“A clogged urinal filled to the brim, with an anaconda-sized turd spiral floating in it, in hypnotic circles. How a turd that size could be buoyant I have no idea.”
The Berlin dive bar
“I was in a Berlin dive bar with some friends. In the bathroom, there was a vending machine, stocked with tinned tapas. So I came back from the bathroom with a can of olives. When asked where I got them I just replied “bathroom.”
These are just some examples of the strangest situations you can find in public toilets. They are a slice of someone’s life. Maybe something we were the only witnesses of. Maybe something usual. Or something will never happen again.
And you, do you have personal stories set in public toilets to tell?
