obviously I wouldn't do it to a prospective employer, but I often take the phone into the toilet with me when my mum, sis, or hubby rings.

It drives my husband mad but is it really such a terrible thing. Surely I am only multi-tasking?

yes but if you held it between your shoulder and chin what if it fell in

i have a chum who's quite comfortable with poo-ing while on the phone
he's given me a running commentary once or twice, too
i'm quite happy to wee while on the phone, though

LittleWonder, I wouldn't eat and talk to someone on the phone either, dontcha know you're not meant to talk with your mouth full?

I'm starting to feel really weird about this thread, I thoguht pooing only in perfect privacy was totally normalhmm

I happily talk on the phone when having a poo. you have to make sure that you line it with paper so there are no splashes!

This thread is still bothering me.

Think of the germs all over the receiver, bleurgh.

Ooh... I like the germs argument. DH shocked me by going to the loo whilst on the phone (long distance) with his brother.

I found it GRIMNESS of the highest order but couldn't put my finger on the reason why.

I have weed though. blush It was BF on the other end of the line and she was in tears. I was desperate...

lol at this. I didn't see it yesterday.

I don't think I would do this, but see the point. And I ALWAYS read on the loo. I mean, it's so boring. What are you supposed to do, just sit there and look at the tiles? I like it as it gives me 5 minutes peace with Grazia.

once peed whilst on phone totally by mistake (butterfly-brain moment) in middle of long conversation - felt so embarrassed - thank god it was my sister at end of line who said "well we all get caught short from time to time" in very brisk, schoolmistressy tones when I apologised ...just grateful it wasn't the bank manager ...

draw the line at pooing though - yuck ....

crying with laughter at this thread

as for mumsnetting on lap-top while pooing, words fail me ...

has anyone mentioned tights on head yet?

You peed on your phone? Did it stop working? If so, how did you explain this to the repair shop? grin

I have taken calls from a professional institution while in the bath, and i have had to call suppliers on a project and get tough with them, again in the bath. It was hard not making any splashing sounds!

I have to hold my hands up here - yes I've pooed while on the phone. Usually while talking to my sister in Oz (hopefully she can't here it from there!)

We only have one bathroom in our house and it was only until recently that in the morning rush one of us might have been on the toilet (usually weeing) while another was brushing their teeth etc. Now the kids have grown up a bit they all want their privacy

I've also breastfed my babies while sitting on the loo - they're all perfectly fine and in fact they don't get colds etc. half as much as their friends!
