Gawker: How to poop at work

It's a sad inevitability. No matter how hard you try, how accurately you plan, how much you control what you eat, it's going to happen at some point: you will have to poop at work. It's where the biological meets the professional and it's always, pardon the expression, a shit show. Let's try to make it easier, shall we?

As the children's book tells us, everyone poops, and everyone has to work, but while we have to work together it doesn't mean we have to poop together, or at least acknowledge that we are all pooping in the same place. It's the great unspoken occurrence of the workplace (unless your office has some crazy rogue nasty pooper or something). So, here are some easy rules to follow so you can drop the deuce without ruining your professional reputation.

Know the Topography

Every office is different in how the toilets are set up, so you have to know the positives and negatives of each set up. If your office has one-man units that's good in terms of privacy but it's hard to escape any blame for noxious fumes. If your bathroom has multiple stalls it's easy to blame the stink on a coworker, but you have to deal with everyone seeing your business. If you work in a restaurant or somewhere the employees use the same facilities as the customers, you have to go without anyone seeing you entering or exiting and possibly ruining your tip. The more you know about the lay of the land, the easier it will be to plan a thorough strategy.

Know the Shitting Toilet

Every bathroom has one, the one bowl that is reserved for dumps. Whether that's the stall in the corner, the bathroom farthest from the desks or what have you, it is the unspoken shitting toilet. Use it. Always. It's like "goal" in a game of tag. No one can judge you if you're in the right place. Double Check the Door

Make sure it is locked. Twice! If it's not, you are headed for a career-destroying disaster.

Get Out of Dodge

A few years ago I had the luxury of living only two blocks from my office, so when the need arose I could escape to my apartment. While this is rare, there might be a Starbucks or McDonald's or hotel lobby (always the fanciest toilets around) where you can escape. Sure, the throne is probably totally nasty and filled with a million cooties, but at least you'll have some anonymity. If a third-party toilet is unavailable, perhaps go to another floor of the building or another department and sully their restroom. Crop dust that asshole Bob in accounting on your way. That guy is a dick.

Drop the Book

If someone sees you walking around your workplace carrying a book or a magazine and you don't work at Barnes & Noble, then they know where you're going and your cover is blown, you dirty office shitter. No reading material in the bathroom. And if you're dumb enough to disobey this rule, certainly don't leave your newspaper lying all over the stall. People will just resent having to clean up your mess. And certainly don't leave a half-done crossword lying around. Then people will think you're stupid on top of gross. Everyone these days has a phone, so look at that and put it back in your pocket. Hell, you can even send some emails so if a bomb goes off you have a time-stamped alibi.

Maximize Productivity

I decided to put this in business terms to make it more euphemistic. What I really mean is don't sit your ass in there for like 30 minutes. You may be one of those people who likes to take your sweet time at home chilling your ass over the bowl for as long as you want, but this is work. Not only do you have shit to do (pun definitely intended) but the longer you linger, the longer the chance that you're going to get caught and embarrassed. So get in, get out, and get back to your desk and leave the leisurely loaves for Saturdays. (cont)

Know What to Expect

I don't want to be crude, but you have to know when your shit is going to stink. Everyone's does. Fact of life, fact of nature. Get over it. But sometimes it's just vaguely unpleasant and sometimes it's a nose-pinching, face-contorting, hand-waving Stink-O-Rama. Based on your digestive situation and what you've been eating for the past 24 hours (pistachios, amirite), you should know which one it's going to be. If it's the former, go to the usual washroom. If it's one of the latter, maybe you should see about finding somewhere else (see above) to spill that toxic waste.

Bring Matches

They're free just about everywhere, easily slipped into a purse or pocket for emergencies, and completely effective for disguising what smells like an elephant's corpse rotting in the gutter. Sure, people are still going to know you unleashed a turd, but they'd rather smell that vaguely ashy and sulfuric aftersmell than the stench of your Second-Day Curry.

No Talking

If you get into a stall, there is no talking to anyone on the outside, unless you have an Elaine-esque toilet paper emergency. It doesn't matter if you enter the space with a coworker in the midst of conversation, as soon as you cross that threshold you need to shut the fuck up. If it's that important, pause before the bathroom door and finish up before heading in. No talking in the group toilet. Period. And this includes grunting while you take a crap. That's just fucking disgusting.

Time the Traffic

If you're in a communal bathroom, try your best to get some alone time. This might be impossible based on the size of your office and the busyness of your bathroom. Make sure there is no one around for the noisiest and most evident part of your business. That's just common courtesy. That might mean holding it back for a bit if someone else interrupts. That's fine. They may know why you're in there, but proving them right is unsavory at best. If you enter the bathroom and realize someone is mid-turd, head to the sink, wash your hands, and leave. Let them finish in peace. You'd be thankful if someone did that for you.

Destroy the Evidence

With some matches and a bit of subterfuge, you can make it appear like you haven't used the toilet at all. That's what everyone wants, to be able to completely ignore the fact that we all have to shit in a communal space. However, that becomes impossible if you leave things behind that destroy that delusion. That includes a streaky bowl. You know what I'm talking about. In the immortal words of Aunt Sassy on The Comeback, "I don't need to see that!" Flush the toilet a few times and get the water to erase away your mark of Cain before exiting.

Exit Strategy

If you run into someone going into the bathroom while you're leaving it and you just did something foul in there, you have to warn them%E2%80%94especially if it's a one man unit. However, you can not tell the truth. Ever. Use the old, "There's no toilet paper in there," ruse. That's a good one. Or the, "The guy before me clogged it." Everyone knows it's a lie, but that's OK. This is all about keeping up pretenses and maintaining the truth. When it comes to office pooping, conscientious denial is the name of the game.

Wash Your Hands

What are you, a fucking animal?

There are few things I hate worse in life than having to take a dump in a public restroom, and work counts as a public restroom. I'm lucky at work, however, because two floors above mine there's a floor that's less than half occupancy (thanks to this economy) so when I feel the need to drop a deuce, I go to the men's room up there because it's always empty. I would never deuce it up in the men's room on my floor, because it's constant traffic all day. %0D %0D What I love are the nasty straight guys I work with who bring reading material (sometimes work-related documents other people have to handle) into the shitter with them. So low-class and vile.

That article forgot the mention the all important courtesy flush. You should flush as soon as your shit hits the water. That will greatly reduce the smell in the room. Letting it linger in the bowl makes the whole room stink a lot worse. Do a couple more flushes after you wipe (bring wet wipes to work, people--they are a must). Light a match, wash up and you will have minimal after effect.

Count me as another person who doesn't get the reading materials in the bathroom. This reminds me of a female who posted on a thread a few years ago about how her boss would go into the men's room with business papers, and she KNEW that some of those would end up in other peoples' hands. It grossed her out, and I totally agree. There was another post (I think it might have been one of the earlier "freaks you work with" threads) where someone brought cupcakes with sprinkles into work, and a guy went into a stall later that day, and there were cupcake sprinkles on the floor, indicating someone had gone in to take a shit and had eaten one of the cupcakes on the crapper. How disgusting.

Helpful hint for those who are poop-shy: if it's because you're worried about sounds (theirs or yours), just plug your ears with your fingers and wiggle them around a little bit, enough to make some noise happen.

Please. I worked my way through college as a janitor in an all-male factory. Don't try to tell me anything about people's "habits." I have cleaned 10 men's rooms the day after the annual union chili bash. And by "cleaned the men's rooms" I mean I had to use a mop with cleanser on a ladder to get the shit off the ceilings.

And after school I worked years in top-tier university research offices with international teams. What those people eat and what they do in the toilet you would not believe. Wash hands? Try not using toilet paper. And if that rotten fish/cabbage/fermented soy the disgusting Chinese guy was eating at midnight (It was assumed we would be working 20 hours a day.) smelled like that going in, you know they should have been evacuating the entire fucking campus at 10 a.m. when he blew the gaskets off four floors of plumbing under his fat dirty yellow ass. No fucking wonder they invented fireworks and gunpowder.

Now I own my own company. I have my own restroom, and no one uses it unless I know about it, because there are only two keys, and only one is at the office. I've had enough of the Alimentary Love Canals of my coworkers for a life time, because I have done my time.

If you all can't take the fact that people happen to shit, sorry for your compunctions. As for me, my experiences have left me with PTSD. I know some of the things I saw in my career were capable of independent motion and could not be flushed because of willful resistance.

Awesomely informative post! I D-R-E-A-D having to shit at work but, alas, sometimes you just gotta go. In the bathroom I always use, there are three stalls. At times I'm fortunate enough to be the only one in there, but at other times...not so lucky. I HATE it when I'm alone in there, and someone comes in and, instead of taking the stall at the far end, they take the one right next to me. As for timing, I'm really good at managing to exit the stall when there's no one in bathroom with me, and if there is someone else in there, they're in a stall already.

The curved walls, frosted polycarbonite. The glass was frosted, and there was only one toilet in each. The gap in the herculite was big. %0D %0D So, after spending wads o' cash on the things, the clients would take one look at the guest bathrooms and say nevermind.

If you are a work-a-day-shitter: get in EARLY and have your coffee/croissant and subsequent shit in, NO LATER THAN 8am, in other words, before most people get in the office and defile the bathroom. For women, go before the 11:00am bathroom run, or, as I like to call it, the cattle stampede of nastiness. Women who prance around the office in Prada, know nada, about bathroom cleanliness or loo etiquette.

I no longer have any problems with pooping at public bathrooms. Airports, malls--I figure I'm probably never going to run into these people again.

Therein lies the problem with pooping at work. You see these people everyday. My schedule seems to rotate every few months and this week, I've been going in the morning. Which of course is my favorite schedule. The worst is the one in the late afternoon/early evening. That's when the bathrooms are the busiest with people using them just before leaving the office.

It's annoying that in the US we tend to favor multi stall bathrooms. I appreciate Japan or the UK where toilets are often in single unit rooms. My issue is performance anxiety as I really don't want to my business with my cube neighbor walking in midway.

I vary my routine to keep it fresh. My favorite are the single unit restrooms on the first floor. But they require me to walk past the building receptionist to get to them. So I try to limit that trip to once or twice a week. The receptionists never actually sees me walk into the restroom but since that particular area only has rental conference rooms, it doesn't make sense for me to be there every day and I'd guess she'd know what I was up to.

My second option is a large restroom for conference room attendees/visitors. It's hardly ever used. No receptionist, but there is some contact with security guards in the lobby.

Lastly, I use my office's restrooms and I try to find a time when there's little foot traffic. I've had to sometimes abort a mission and come around for another attempt because the restrooms are busy. This is the worst as I hate having to hold it in.

I haven't ever seen a women's restroom where the toilet cubicles were that horrible. Maybe I've just been lucky. Seat sprinkles seem to be universal - I carry a purse pack of Handi-Wipes just for that purpose. %0D %0D Now the sink area....whole different thing. Water puddles on the counter and the floors, used paper towels in the sink, used tissues, make-up smears. Or women spraying clouds of some noxious perfume or hairspray. Being trapped in a cubicle while a cloud of toxic scent descends on you is almost as bad as being ambushed by a gas explosion from the Shit Stall.

I hate pooping in public more than anything. I'm roughly 40 lbs overweight (5' 9" 425 lbs) because I have bad knees and have a hard time walking. I use store scooters to help me shop and very few stores make their bathrooms so you can drive the cart inside. You end up parking near the bathroom door and hobbling into the bathroom where people will stare and make hurtful comments like it's YOUR fault they made the bathrooms not accessible to people with disabilities! And that's before you even get to the stall to poop!

Thankfully, at work they have to provide us with bathrooms for the disabled and I was able to have my desk be the closest one to the bathroom so I don't have to walk far to get to it. Most people don't use the bathroom I do anymore, so it's sort of private just because most people use a different one.

A few months ago I had to take a shit at work. The Designated Shitter is the handicapped stall farthest from the door (no one ever, ever uses the other stall for anything but a pee - it's the second urinal). It was about 45 minutes before I had an appointment out of the office.

I flushed. Brown shit-water rose to the surface of the bowl (it must have been building in the pipes all day) with my contribution playing ring-around-the-rosy on the top.

The plunger did nothing. Finally I went to the janitor's closet in search of Drano or something. Nothing. Then I went to the company break room. Success - a half-bottle of Liquid Plum-R under the sink.

I poured it down and put a "Do Not Enter" sign on the stall door.

Five minutes before I had to leave, nothing had changed. And plunging STILL didn't help. The stench was ungodly. I really had to leave, so I left the "Do Not Enter" sign on the stall, put the empty bottle of Liquid Plum-R on top of the tank as a symbol of my good intentions and left for the day.

The next morning, it was gone, all of it: clean water in the bowl, no empty bottle on top, like it never happened. But it must have been obvious who the log jammer was.

Still mortified.

La Streisand was known for traveling around LA with her own porta potty so she wouldn't have to have her shit mingle with the common folks shit.

Queen Elizabeth travels with her own personal toilet seat covered in white kidskin. Royalty must not sit where the uncouth peasants have parked their disgusting asses.

Anymore "poop at work" stories, DLers? I need a good lauigh today!

Why do some guys take huge dumps at work, like everyday? Is it a territorial thing? I see the same guys in the men's room every morning after they Ive taken a 30 minute shit when I pee. Some people just dont give a shit how much time they spend shitting at work.

I think I deserve a huge bonus for taking minimal dumps on company time.

I just go in my diaper. Sure, it stinks but it spares me the embarrassment and health risk of peeing or making doody in the public restroom at work.

So sad that this generation is so entitled that they worry endlessly about pooping within 500 yards of another human being.

by Anonymousreply 21606/14/2013

R213 I don't get it either. Almost every time I go to the restroom at work to go pee, there's at least one stall with someone in there shitting. I wouldn't shit at work unless it was an absolute emergency. But these men just seem to think they're at home.

It's gross hearing all the nasty sounds.

As a rule, I usually go in the morning. I factor in the time I might be pooping when I set my alarm. I rarely go at work except for those times that I might be a bit anxious about some work situation and my insides tend to get crazy.

I find that if I eat 5-7 prunes followed by a glass of water at night, say about 7pm, I will have little problem in taking a substantial, less strained b m before going to work. And I have recently changed my routine from having a shower first thing to having it after I've pooped. I can usually go within the first 40 minutes. I 'm one of those who prefers to wash afterwards if I can.

i have seen an item in the stores where you drop a pellet of something in the bowl before you go and the odors are never noticeable. Don't know what they are. Don't know if they work. Interesting idea.

What do you do when you are pooping and your boss walks in a sits at the cubicle next to you? You recognize him by his shoes. Do you continue going or clench up? What if BOTH of you clench up and its a stand-off? What do you do then?

by Anonymousreply 22111/29/2013

I wish there was a way to post this at my work. I work with mostly women, and there is a one-bowl communal toilet by our offices that most of us understand is just for peeing. For poops, we all use the large restrooms on the other side of the building that each have 3 stalls and are usually empty.

EXCEPT for one chick. At least once a day, if not twice, she settles into the "onester" bathroom and shuts it down for 20 minutes. She takes her fucking iPad in with her, doesn't turn on the fan, or use the Glade we've put in there. So gross--and she leaves long, curly, greasy hair everywhere. My office is the closest to that bathroom, so if I have to pee after her, I have to walk to the other one to avoid the stench. The funny thing is, she is closer to the big, anonymous bathrooms, but still walks down to the shared one to unleash her nastiness.

It makes our boss nuts too, but telling someone how to shit at work is a conversation I'm sure she'd like to not have. Plus, the offensive pooper is in every other way a very sweet girl, but dang, "she nasty".

In Uganda they think we eat da poo-poo.

I heard my boss in the next stall poop a really loud and nasty one once. He was a nasty, rude, bigoted, big ex-football player, too. I never liked him much, and liked him less after that experience.

One gal told me she squats over the toilet to poop when in public. That may explain the poop on the seat.

by Anonymousreply 22411/29/2013

I take a little pocket-sized can of Glade with me and give a few spritzes, mostly because our bathroom at work ALWAYS smells like shit. We have some really obese guys who, I swear, shit dead animals. It's horrendous. But, yeah, the Glade also covers up my indiscretions. Everyone should invest in one and use it accordingly. It's the nice thing to do for your fellow work shitters.

by Anonymousreply 22511/29/2013

Glade smells worse than residual shit molecules, R225.

There was a guy who used to carry a 12" can of something Glade-like in the water bottle pocket of his backpack. I'd see him at the coffee shop we both frequented. More than once, I heard people making jokes about "Gary Glade," or "the Glade Guy" as he'd walk towards, or back from, the restroom.

There was a group of guys who were also there a lot, and they'd make fun of him out loud, even. "Hey, Gary Glade's droppin' a deuce" -- that kind of thing.

I wonder what your co-workers call you, R225.

by Anonymousreply 22611/29/2013

My coworkers don't know I have it, R226. And no, the Glade doesn't smell worse.

I drink lots of v8 before work so i can shit in three different toilets. First i use the employee one then the two public ones. I am in early and this gets done before everyone shows up at 8 am. I always hear them talking about the non flusher. And u know that v8 make poopies very liquidy

by Anonymousreply 22811/30/2013

Due to my weight problems and mobility issues I started wearing a diaper to work. Yeah, it doesn't smell great but it gets the job done and is a time saver for me because I don't need to spend time using the restroom. This way I can have a B.M. in the middle of a meeting without leaving the meeting. My coworkers have been very accommodating and I don't think the odor is an issue. Sometimes they turn their head away or look at me when I'm going and it makes a "squirting" noise, but I'm pretty sure they don't think it's coming from me.

I knew a lady who always kept a box of matches in her purse and when she needed to do #2, she'd light a match in the stall.

Maybe you could keep a scented candle with you and light that up - and that would be even better?

A guy who worked for my Dad made a point of pooping at work. He was an hourly worker. It really annoyed my Dad that he spent maybe the first 30 minutes of the work day getting paid to poop. He was obese, maybe 350 lbs, so that may explain the time. Personally, I'm all for getting paid to poop.
