I need cheering up, a crazy lady crashed into me on a roundabout this morning at 9.30 and im still constantly on the phone to insurers etc trying to sort it all out.

Anyway yes skid marks. Does anyone else's husband etc produce skid-marked boxers.

Is it a man thing?

Is it laziness?

Have you ever skid-marked ?

That is disgusting. My husband, and for that matter, no man whose pants I've ever seen has done that.

Totally disgusting for an adult or anyone who should be capable of wiping their own arse.

Does he sit in shitty pants all day then?

Nicknacky Fri 13-Jun-14 16:07:47

Is he embarrassed by it?? Why would a grown adult be unable to wipe his own bum?

I have three sons and a husband. The only one who gets skids in his underwear is under one.

Seriously, I'd say that's neither normal nor acceptable, let alone inevitable. I do hope you make him launder hisown.

Anyone NT and older than about five should be able to get through the day without leaving smudges.

It's completely disgusting, no adult except those with disabilities or similar issues has any excuse for not being able to wipe their own bottom.

I would have to divorce my husband if he left skid marks in his boxers. I might forgive him if he had been unwell, but otherwise it has to be grounds for divorce. Why does your husband not clean his arse properly and why doesn't he even attempt to clean his boxers when he realises that they are skiddy so that you are not aware that he doesn't know how to wipe his arse properly?

Doesn't happen to my husband. I mean I don't inspect his pants but I've washed enough pairs over the years and haven't ever seen skiddies.

AnnieLobeseder Fri 13-Jun-14 16:12:36

I have lived with five adult males in my life and not a single one of them ever left skid marks in boxers. Your DH's personal hygiene is sadly lacking. What adult without additional needs cannot wipe their own arse properly?

I would get a separate washing basket for them and get him to deal with them until he learns what toilet paper is for.

I hope you get the car stuff sorted and are okay. thanks

That's why i think it should be compulsory to wipe self with wet wipes. Sometimes it's difficult to do a 100% job with just the paper.

Topseyt Fri 13-Jun-14 16:14:23

Nope, not normal. I have never had this.

Throw his boxers out if he hasn't wiped his arse. When he has run out of them and needs to buy new ones tell him that you will only consider washing them again when he has taken a course of proper arse-wiping lessons!!

GoringBit Fri 13-Jun-14 16:14:28

As other threads have hilariously shown, skidmarks and worse can happen, but they're usually avoidable.

In the spirit of sharing, I have only skidded rarely, and never amusingly the day I shat in a flower tub in Norwood High Street was skidmark free.

OP hope you're okay after your accident and that your dealings with the utter bastards insurance company go smoothly.

Finola1step Fri 13-Jun-14 16:14:31

Really not normal.

Lazy and dirty. This tells you that he can't be bothered to wipe his own arse properly.

Unless if course there is something else he is not telling you. A medical problem? Issues with really bad piles?

Meloria Fri 13-Jun-14 16:17:58

DrinkFeckArseGirls I think you'll find a lot of people manage to wipe themselves perfectly well with just paper toilet roll.

Boudica1990 Fri 13-Jun-14 16:20:16

Not once has my DP had soiled boxers, and I have washed clothes he has lived in for over a week on excersise with work.

Muddy damp clothes yes but not poo stained boxers.

Nicknacky Fri 13-Jun-14 16:21:14

Op, I don't think this thread is going to pan out the way you thought it would.......

EyelinerQueen Fri 13-Jun-14 16:21:31

Am I the only person who doesn't inspect their OH's gusset before putting a wash on????

shock confused

cardamomginger Fri 13-Jun-14 16:22:51

If he doesn't have a health issue, such as IBS or other digestive/bowel problems, piles or anal tags, all of which can make it difficult both to get and then stay clean, then he is just being lazy. If he does, then baby wipes will help him).

gamerchick Fri 13-Jun-14 16:23:42

I don't inspect gussets.

But if somebody crashed into me I would expect a skid or 2 in my shorts grin

Hope you get it sorted OP.

CMP69 Fri 13-Jun-14 16:23:58

My 5 yo doesn't have skid marks never mind DH angry

CookieMonsterIsHot Fri 13-Jun-14 16:25:09

Yuck yuck yuck. Do you actually wash them for him? Oh. My. God.

I have just finished clearing up poo. Middle child failed to get to the toilet in time with diarrhoea. Nice. That is the only situation in which I would handle someone else's shitty pants.

Everyone in my household can wipe their bums properly. Including DH.

I have to ask, when you are having sex doesn't it put you off that he has poo stuck to his bum?

TippiShagpile Fri 13-Jun-14 16:26:07

My young children don't even leave skid marks.

That's revolting.

How can a man get to adulthood without being able to wipe his arse properly?

Nicknacky Fri 13-Jun-14 16:26:34

Cookie, I did wonder that too.
