DH has just come back from a run and sheepishly told me that he took a dump in a bush. Again. This is not the first time. It doesn't happen regularly, but it has happened. How can he think this is ok??

He says he has no choice. I asked him, if he was surrounded by people watching him he would have held it, and he said 'yes, but I would have had to end my run'. So finishing a run is more important than not crapping in public???

He asked me to post because he thinks he will be validated. I know he wont. There is no way this is normal or ok. Judge him hard.

Oh, and I'm not the poo troll. I just name changed so the shame of this doesn't trail me around...

Sparklingbrook Thu 18-Apr-13 07:26:50

Did he pick it up and bag it?

That is gross. I'm sure it's illegal.

Euphemia France Thu 18-Apr-13 07:27:42

That's vile! I could understand getting caught short if you've had a stomach bug, or have IBS, but he's making a habit of it!


MissSusan Thu 18-Apr-13 07:28:02

What did he wipe with ?

chrome100 Thu 18-Apr-13 07:28:07

OK, I'm afraid I'm with your DH. I am a runner and have done this a few times. When you have to go, you have to go. Probably TMI but meh...

RescueCack Thu 18-Apr-13 07:28:13

No, he didn't bag it either. He didn't carry a baggy for himself...

RescueCack Thu 18-Apr-13 07:28:46

He wiped with his sweat band and binned it <dies of shame some more>

AnyFucker Germany Thu 18-Apr-13 07:28:53

Dirty fucking bastard

What the hell is wrong with him ?

RescueCack Thu 18-Apr-13 07:29:41

Well, he's not making a "habit" of it. As far as I know, it's happened 3 times including this one since I've known him. Which is 15 years.

He didn't crap in the street though did he?

He crapped in a bush/ in the woods like normal runners right???

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Thu 18-Apr-13 07:30:15

Why couldn't he just end his run?

I'm with you. I think it's revolting

BlackeyedSusan England Thu 18-Apr-13 07:30:38

with any fucker on that. disgusting.

RescueCack Thu 18-Apr-13 07:30:47

Chrome posts like yours are what I was afraid of. He says runners will understand, non-runners wont.

5318008 Thu 18-Apr-13 07:31:16

That is disgusting

Defecating in public, beyond the pale

Sparklingbrook Thu 18-Apr-13 07:31:25

You need to send him out with Washlets and a poo bag next time.

Dawndonna Thu 18-Apr-13 07:31:40

What is he, a three year old?

HollyBerryBush Thu 18-Apr-13 07:31:47

Tell him to get up earlier and crap before he leaves the house

RescueCack Thu 18-Apr-13 07:32:08

He says it was off the main road, no-one could see.

Sparklingbrook Thu 18-Apr-13 07:32:27

Doesn't running make you need a poo though?

There's no reason to crap in an actual street - if you're running on streets and don't have a medical condition you run to a public toilet.

If like my dh you're running 5 miles from town in the woods and fields you shit in a field.

Methinks your dh thinks he's Paula fucking Radcliffe wink

YANBU - a gent in Malvern wrote to his local bin depot demanding £1500 compensation as the binmen were doing their business on his driveway - long rural route, no facilities, even brought their own toiler paper.

He should have at least bagged it.

Revolting. YANBU
