Using the sink or shower while your spouse or significant other takes a shit.

What's the big deal...this happens at my house all the time.

It seems as soon as I get in the shower my wife or daughter are pounding on the door wanting to use the can.

Sad thing is that we have a toilet in the basement....but they are too fucking lazy to go down there to shit.

Will never happen in my house. We have two bathrooms plus the great outdoors.

I've licked just about every part of my wife's body washed and unwashed, so I find it hard to be grossed out while she's deucing on the other side of the room when my line of sight is obstructed by a shower curtain. As long as she (a) asks before putting her ass down and (b) remembers not to cause a significant drop in the water temperature (in the shower) by flushing, I'm okay with it.

As for my kid, he's still too young to know not to. I'd rather have him shitting on the toilet even if I'm in the shower than on the new wood flooring.

Its called multiple bathrooms, and I assumed it was the standard. There is a lock on the bathroom door, and I use it.

It has happened, but only rarely.

It happened to me whilst I was married, but I can't say it worried me at all. We had a downstairs toilet, but my ex didn't like using it. She'd rather use the upstairs one whether I was in the bath or shower or neither. To be fair, her shit was not particularly smelly - unlike mine!

The question isn't if you mind if someone shits while you're showering, it's if you mind someone using the sink or tub as an emergency toilet because you're occupying the only one in the house.

While I agree with Anonymous Coward about locking the door, I don't think that it's the norm that most homes have more than one bathroom. Many people live in one or two-bedroom apartments or small homes where one bathroom is normal for the houseplans or the size of the domicile.

We're lucky. We have 3 toilets (not to mention the outdoors, you know) so rarely to never is there a need for this type of action. If we all get Salmonella again, maybe.

I think it's acceptable because whaddya' gonna' do? It's your bladder, and it only stretches so far. (However, I'd prefer a number two ending up in the bathroom trash can because it's got a plastic bag in it and would be easier to clean up)

It might help in a situation like this for the offending party to make a point of using bathroom cleaner or bleach or toilet cleaner in the sink or tub afterwards to clean up after oneself.

Mine stink worse than anyone elses so I do not mind if I am showering and my significant other wants to take a dump. I havent had a significant other in quite a few years (I hate to tell you how many) so that problem has never reared its ugly head at my house.

I have done that plenty of times while my husband has been in the shower! Before when we first got married I was scared to let him hear me go poop but now I do not care!

Has never happened in my one-seat household but could if desperate enough. Would never do it routinely. Kat's entry reminds me of the old joke:

Q: How do you know when the honeymoon is over?
A: When your wife comes in and takes a shit while you're shaving.

Lot of truth in humor.

I agree with daphe that people were not reading this correctly. I would make the person clean the sink or tub after. So, that is my take on it.

If somebody wanted to shit in my sink or shower, I would'nt allow it. That's what the gas station down the street is for.

But if the meaning is would you allow somebody to use the sink or shower for their intended purposes while you're on the throne, I guess I would'nt care.

I thought it simply meant showering while someone is shitting in the same room; it reads "using" the sink or shower, not "pooping" while S/O takes a shit. So I dunno.

For our household, I'd say "No," in either case. I poop alone, thank you, and no one has ever crapped in our sinks or tubs (that I know of).

I think you're right GGG. I'm interpritting this as: I'm in the shower or using the sink...do I mind if my husband drops a deuce while I'm doing either?

My answer is no to the shower, yes to the sink. Our old house had only one bathroom, so it was kind of hard sometimes to NOT have to use the toilet while someone was in the shower. But there were other sinks available.

I'm not opposed to it, but I certainly don't go looking for either shituation.

I answered on the basis of me using the sink or shower (for washing purposes!) whilst they had a shit. I'd be quite happy for any SO to have a shit in my presence whatever I was doing.

No, no, and NO!!! No one is coming into the bathroom and using it while I am at the sink or in the shower. It's not that I'm a poop nazi. The problem is, our bathrooms are both so small that the toilet is only a foot away from both the sink and the shower. (Damn trailer bathrooms!) There's no way I'd be able to use either without seeing Gilbert drop a deuce, and that is something I certainly do NOT want to see!

Let me clarify my above statement: it's O.K. if my husband uses the toilet while I'm in the shower...it is NOT O.K. IN ANY WAY if ANYONE uses ANYTHING in the bathroom if I'M using the toilet.

I grew up in a one bathroom home with 4 people. If me or my sister were showering, mom would come in and use the toilette without a qualm. But dad was super shy about it. It depends on the relationship between the two peopel.

The only time my wife and I have to use the same bathroom is when we are staying in a hotel. She's the world's worse Shameful Shitter. On our last trip, I was getting ready to go into the bathroom, and she said rather sternly "I wouldn't go in there right now."

I said "don't worry about it, I'm just going to smell it up some more." I guess she accepted that as an acceptable reply, but I'm still not sure. Kind of awkward having to travel with her for this reason. If she doesn't learn to lighten up, I may give up traveling.

Actually, the steam from the shower, and smell from the toilet will combine to create a shit sauna. Not pleasant.

I also agree with pooprincess. It's bad enough when I'm in the bathroom by myself and I drop and air biscuit and have to suffer that shower steam/fart gas. Shower steam+fart=chemical warfare.

In our one-throne castle, the three of us have the utmost respect for each others' time in the think tank. Luckily, we were all raised to be courteous. "Anyone have to use the bathroom?" serves to warn the other two that if they've got to pee, now is the time.

In the rare pee emergency, usually early in the morning, a bottle or something is used as a chamber pot in private, then emptied later. None of us barge, especially just to pee.

In the extremely rare multiple offload situation, those involved make it as quick as they can with no dawdling. False alarms get a minute or two of double-check time, then it's out for the next guy.

Good manners make for good family life!

Me and my s/o use the same bathroom while one of us is pooping all the time. Once you do it a few times, the embarrassment goes away. Granted, it's annoying if it stinks sometimes, but it doesn't gross me out to watch him or anything. We're so comfotable with each other that neither of us minds. Plenty of times I've been taking a bath, and instead of using the downstairs bathroom, he specifically comes upstairs to poop so he can talk to me at the same time.

Ah...the camaraderie of the familial dump. The stench is not as bad (perhaps) when it comes from the anus of a loved one.

Unless an absolute emergency, why not just wait ? In the alternative, if the next door neighbor is single and really attractive, why not saunter over next door and ask to use her bathroom ? It beatd pretending you need to borrow a cup of flour.

It's totally fine to do that while just peeing, but taking a shit is a little too personal.. I don't judge, but it's not for me!

Love this post. Know the feeling exactly. Our boy is 9 months old now and solid food means solid poop. With baby number 2 on the way in November, we've got another winter of frozen sprints to the outside bin with stink bomb parcels like that one!
