If I gotta go I'm going. But if I can hold off till home I will.

I'm a strong, independent woman and I'll poop wherever I want to.... except for outdoors, that's just nasty. Air blowing across your button hole, yuck. But public toilets, yeah.

 lol ๐Ÿ‘

  I squat outdoors any day if I can do that instead of public toilets. Public toilets are just plain nasty.

My ex boyfriends daughter would only poo at her mums or dads house. It made for a difficult life. We had to take two cars if we went out in case he had to take her home to poo.

 So she could never go on holidays because she wouldn't poo anywhere else??

 No holidays while I was around. We couldn't move in together etc. Was easier to end the relationship.

Public toilets at the shopping centre mean I can poo in private away from my kids, best most relaxing poo

I stay in a caravan for weeks at a time, so yes I poo in public toilets often.

If you've got to go, you've got to go. Living with IBS taught me this. And if I don't find a toilet quick.... panic!

I've traveled enough that I learned to use what's available, even if it's not pleasant, because I never know where the next loo will be. I carry hand sanitiser, 4 ply tissues and mastered advanced breath holding.

I do have some very strange & oddly funny stories about loos around the world. Some of them are really, really strange!

 Yes the one on Indian trains.. got one for those?

Yep. Poo, flush to get rid of smell, wipe (With my own tissues) and reflush. I use hand sanitizer and my own wipe wipes to clean the seat before hand.

I hate it, but sometimes it canโ€™t be avoided- I put a layer of toilet paper down to make myself feel better though lol

 Paper has spray of poo

 Op of this comment-Not when you take of the first couple of layers to put down the loo to avoid splash back lol. Plus, if it is inside the dispenser, I donโ€™t think it would have that much poo spray ๐Ÿ˜

I try not too but if you gotta go you gotta go. My stomach can't handle some meals well so if we're out to dinner or at someone's house sometimes you need to go. I try to hide the fact though lol
