To think there is no excuse for peeing all over a toilet seat...

This drives me insane in pulic toilets. I went to the surgery this morning to see the midwife and someone had peed not only all over the seat but all over the floor too sad This happens so often and I have found myself sitting down before looking in a sea of pee. Why can't people bloody wipe it up at least?

Even if someone had difficulty going to the loo surely they would be aware they had peed all over the seat and floor and maybe tell someone to help clean it up instead of leaving it, It is also a slipping hazard too.

Oh and I was going to tell the receptionist on my way out but she was on the phone.

yanbu It winds me up. i don't even understand HOW women do it, and if you do there is no excuse for not cleaning up after yourself.

Might be a small child or, especially in hospital, someone incapacitated? I agree it's a bit anti-social to just leave it there, though.

What was the old rhyme about tinkle and sprinkle? Always reminded me of hundreds and thousands for some reason smile

Maybe Tanith but it happens a lot in the supermarkets etc too....sad
If you knew your child usually peed all over the seat though would you not check after them?
I don't know the rhyme though....
My nanna used to say she was going for a 'widdle' confused

Mind you, you said it was at the doctor's - trying to get a urine sample in those little tubes is a fine art I've yet to perfect smile

Yes, I agree - a spraying child should equal a careful check of the seat afterwards.

I had to do it for the MW this morning, I probably peed a bit on seat tbh but I did make sure it was all clean before I left! .......................(I think )confused Maybe it was ME!

I think some women won't sit down on the seat, and so "hovver" .... thus spraying everywhere and making it dirty for everyone else. No excuse at all for not giving the seat a wipe though.

if you sprinkle when you tinkle, be sweet and wipe the seat grin

Ivortheengine8 Wed 17-Aug-11 18:13:05

True claws, I do that too sometimes if its manky and I am not in the mood to clean up someone else's piss grin, but like you said should clean it after.

I wonder if there is like a portable toilet seat one can take around with them to put on top of dirty public toilet seats?
Maybe I should try and invent one....

I hate it too.

I have enough at home, with an OH and two DSs who think it acceptable to run into the loo, dropping trousers, aiming roughly in the direction of the toilet, and running out again...

Tbh, the 4 year old is okay, but the older two are a nightmare.

Absolutely no excuse for women though. I agree, it is the hoverers that do it.

Ivortheengine8 Wed 17-Aug-11 18:15:46

Talking of pee, I just read this sad How gross is that!

Pawsnclaws Wed 17-Aug-11 18:18:06

shock Ewwwww!!

I think I've read elsewhere he has a drink problem. Sounds like it played a part.

evenlessnarkypuffin Wed 17-Aug-11 18:18:27

Agree Pawsnclaws. I too blame hoverers.

There are some excuse for peeing all over the seat though.

1) The small child in the cubicle with you decides to leave the cubicle whilst you're in the middle of weeing and you have to half get up to stop them mid flow blush
2) Snakes in the toilet.
3) A mouse runs over your foot.
4) A snake comes out of the toilet and eats the mouse running over your foot.

But you should clean up afterwards

OMG Even what country do you live in?!
I'm going to be thinking about that next time I am sitting on the loo sad

This has been a real bugbear of mine ever since dd was toilet trained. When we use public loos I pretty much always have to wipe splashes off seats before I can sit her down on them - hate it! And don't get me started on toilets left filthy and not flushed......angry.

evenlessnarkypuffin Wed 17-Aug-11 18:25:50

2) Was in Australia. I looked first grin
3) Was in my SIL's house
4) Was theoretical

Tanith Wed 17-Aug-11 18:32:06

supadupapupscupa: That's the one! I thank you for saving me a whole evening of trying to remember it grin

Ivortheengine8 Wed 17-Aug-11 18:38:49

Liverpool I also my my 22 month old with me an although she wasn't using the loo she did step in the pee on the floor, she is learning that when mummy goes to the toilet she mustn't touch ANYTHING!

ShoutyBag Wed 17-Aug-11 18:47:32

My ex used to do this all the time at home, so when I went for a wee I'd get a wet arse. Absolutely disgusted me that did. I always check in public loos that I haven't splashed (hoverer) as I know little kids tend to hold the seat when they sit down.

whackamole Wed 17-Aug-11 20:21:12

My 10 yo DSS pees on the seat all the time angry it's disgusting. I keep those anti-bac wipes right next to the loo as well, he with doesn't lift the seat or sits and sprays everywhere!

I have told him now (and have carried out this threat twice in one weekend) that if if happens again I will make him clean the toilet.

Don't think I've ever been in a truly minging public toilet though - not to my recollection anyway!

Much as I hate to come up with a reasonable explanation for this (evenlessnarkypuffin 's excuses are sooooo much better) it could be the work of an elderly lady with osteoporosis (and is therefore very stooped over) and who struggles to walk/sit down on the loo/get back up from sitting on the loo/notice that she has inadvertently sprayed wee everywhere in her attempt/is unable to actually clean it up even if she did/is too proud to tell the receptionist that she's made a mess... sad

There is another excuse I would accept: sitting on a wasp.

Ivortheengine8 Wed 17-Aug-11 22:05:29

Ignoring, you have thought that through extremely thoughtfully - thanks for that! She might also have bad eyesight of course?
Choccy, though, if someone had sat on a wasp wouldn't the remains of the wasp still be there? confused (or is it bumble bees that die when they sting you?)
