Workman using my toilet!

2 workmen have literally just arrived they will be here for a maximum of 15 mins.
One of the men asked to use my toilet of course that's fine. 10 mins later he emerges. He didn't open the toilet window and left the toilet door open so I can smell a very nasty smell! My bathroom and toilet are seperate and he definitely did not go into the bathroom and wash his hands.
Am I be U to be annoyed at this or am I being a hormonal crazy lady?

Yanbu. Sounds grim.

Disinfect the door handles and put it down to experience. He had to poo but not washing is nasty.

YANBU. Obviously everyone uses the loo, but you make sure it's OK for the next person to use. Yuck to not washing.

He has also left ehem 'residue' I've just been in its made me feel really gippy 😷...
I wouldn't dare do that in someone's house I would be as discreet as possible

If he left ...residue, I would ask him to go back and clean the loo to the same condition as he found it in before his poo

There's just no excuse to leave skid, disgusting. Had a workman do that in my toilet, discovered it after he left. If it's above waterline he could have used toilet paper to clean it, if below waterline, dare I say it, do you have a toilet brush, he could have used?

That is disgusting , are they still there ?
I'd make a show of cleaning it

VulcanWoman Mon 21-Mar-16 15:19:32

Maybe it's like a dog, place marking, yuk.

NorthernBird92 Mon 21-Mar-16 15:21:29

No they left very soon after... I didn't go straight up because of the smell I mentioned I couldn't face it. When I had to go upstairs to put baby to nap I went in to open the window and noticed as the seat was up
Luckily I have a toilet brush but still 😷

Maybe he didn't know where the bathroom was to wash his hands (if separate from the toilet) ? Was the toilet brush also easy to find if he left "residue"?

Whilst it is disgusting, my job requires me to be out of the house from 3pm-10.30pm most days. Whilst I might only be at one person's house for an hour, at some point in the evening, I will need to use the toilet. Whilst I would always clean up after myself etc, I'd be horrified if clients started thinking, " but she's only been here x amount of time and now she wants to use the toilet" (in ref to the first comment about, "they will be here for a maximum of 15 minutes").

When we had our boiler fitted last year, one of the plumbers did this.

I went downstairs to where they were working and told him to wash his hands immediately because I didn't want his germ-ridden hands all over my kitchen and that he had absolutely no manners to leave a customers toilet in that state.

The boss called me later that day and apologised.

DH knows a few local plumbers through work. Apparently it's become a bit of an urban legend now that this guy got a bollocking for having a poo. DH hasn't said it was his partner who gave the bollocking but he's secretly very proud.

I'd report him because that's just bad manners.

BumWad Mon 21-Mar-16 15:28:48

The Sky man did this at my house he left a right fucking mess. I had to chuck my loo brush (shock I have a loo brush...) and everything.

Indeed it is fucking grim felt like complaining to Sky!!!!

NorthernBird92 Mon 21-Mar-16 15:30:35

The bathroom is next door to the the toilet and I told him that when I showed him where the toilet was... The brush was also in clear view as is the window he could have opened....
In regards to how long he would be here yes ok if you have to you have to go but you could at least leave it as he found it..
shauns I should have done that.

VertigoNun Mon 21-Mar-16 15:32:00

I love the urban legend.grin

NorthernBird92 Mon 21-Mar-16 15:36:31

Urban legend ?

peggyundercrackers Mon 21-Mar-16 15:37:59

report him? what would you say - your workman had a poo and didn't wash his hands and he left some skidmarks in my toilet? erm right... I guess most businesses would think your a bit bonkers for that.

WhatDat Mon 21-Mar-16 15:43:41

What peggy said grin

SweetieDrops Mon 21-Mar-16 15:48:17

Maybe he was worried you would give out to him if he opened the window, you could have a cat that's not allowed out or something? It's not that big a deal IMHO, just chuck some bleach down it and open the window, it'll soon air out.

expatinscotland Mon 21-Mar-16 15:48:27

'report him? what would you say - your workman had a poo and didn't wash his hands and he left some skidmarks in my toilet? erm right... I guess most businesses would think your a bit bonkers for that.'

Then let them. I wouldn't care. That's fucking bad manners.

LeaLeander Mon 21-Mar-16 16:11:19

I'd be treating myself to a new loo brush after a good bleachdown of the toilet room.

I try to be compassionate and assume people just weren't raised to be discreet, gracious, clean, whatever and feel sympathy for them instead of disgust but it's grim, grim grim!

CaptainHammer Mon 21-Mar-16 16:29:32

My MIL had a similar experience last week with the guy who laid her floor. Mega 'residue' 😷. There's a loo brush and bleach next to the toilet!
Everyone has to take a crap but it's just rude to leave it like that.

WhoaCadburys Mon 21-Mar-16 17:12:18

Eww, yuck if he was there ten minutes he probably had a wank as well <helpful>

I hate workmen using my toilet because in experience they are very messy
