When you go to the bathroom as many times as I do a day, you learn some tips and tricks to avoiding potentially embarrassing situations when taking crap.  So here are some of my most prizes tips to to avoiding sh*tty situations in the stall!

Become a Pooping Ninja in Public:

  1. The Walk-in-Walk-Out: I can’t tell you how many times I have walked into the bathroom to poop and found a group of girls having gossip time in front of the sink.  The last thing in the world I want to do is take a not so dainty poop in front of these gossipy girls, so instead, I walk into the bathroom, assess the situation, and walk right back out.  No harm, no fowl, crisis averted!
  2. The Cover Up: Pooping in crowded bathrooms is entirely unavoidable at times.  And usually I don’t care about taking a leisurely poop in a crowded bathroom, but if I’m feeling particularly self conscious, I will hold it in till someone flushes, and then let it go.  Its the perfect cover-up!
  3. The Double-Check: When walking into the bathroom, I normally subconsciously assess who all is in the bathroom and hope the answer is nobody.  I enjoy pooping in private.  But sometimes I worry I’ve assessed the situation wrong and get nervous that someone else is actually in the bathroom with me.  In this circumstance, I double-check by checking for feet under the stalls.

*Disclaimer: Fun fact: Reality:  You are probably never going to see the people in a public restroom again, so who cares if they hear you poop???? Just a thought!
