To think it's grim and lazy to piss in the shower

Inspired by another thread but not a TAAT.

I'm surprised how many people think it's OK and actually do it themselves.

It's fine

urine is sterile
it goes straight down the plug
it saves water

I do it

I can't get exercised about this. It's only piss you know. Now if it was a stream of radioactive goo infected with ebola and yellow fever - maybe. But it's not. Nobody will die of it.

I don't get the issue...

Doesn't everyone?

Hacker, hi, sorry to break it to you but I think you'll find that there are many threads about this and the consensus is that it saves water, and is ok'd by the mumsnet majority.

Personally I find the fact that we plumb in drinking water to flush a loo absolutely crazy! What not use grey water from washing machines, dishwashers, basins and showers?

It's more economical. Think of all the water I save by not having to flush after my early morning wee.

How bad can it's good enough to drink if you're Bear Grylls

Just make sure it runs down your legs and doesn't actually splash. It's quite interesting watching the clear water changing colour as the wee mixes in.

Yes this is fine, saves water and time. Why not?

LaurieFairyCake Tue 07-Jun-16 13:54:12

I stay in the bath for hours

I don't get out to pee

Urine is sterile

I think it's grim to shit in the shower, but pee? Not so much.

NeedACleverNN Tue 07-Jun-16 13:55:36

I pee in the bath too fairy

You can also assess its colour for a spot of self-diagnosis.

HereSheComestoSavetheDay Tue 07-Jun-16 13:56:45

It's only a little bit of wee going on an adventure down the plughole.

WorraLiberty Tue 07-Jun-16 13:57:11

I can't get fussed about it.

No, I don't think it's grim.

bibbitybobbityyhat Tue 07-Jun-16 13:57:23

I think everyone should pee in the shower. Saves litres of clean water.

Brushing teeth in the shower though ... don't get me started on that!

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 13:58:45

Yabu I pee in the shower can't see the problem. What's your gripe with it op?

reallybadidea Tue 07-Jun-16 13:58:53

YANBU. Yuck.

coffeetasteslikeshit Tue 07-Jun-16 13:59:03

YABU. What's the actual problem?

GummyBunting Tue 07-Jun-16 13:59:34

If you get out mid shower to flush a wee down the toilet, you're a mug.

gingerboy1912 Tue 07-Jun-16 14:00:27

Do the people who think it's grim swim in a public swimming pool, The sea. Or drink tap water?

JudgeLionelNutmeg Tue 07-Jun-16 14:01:04

Sometimes I think I don't want a piss then I get in the shower and the running water must set my bladder off and I find I do after all. So I piss in the shower as I simply cannot be arsed to get out to use the toilet.

Now pooing in the shower - that would be grim!

DrinkReprehensibly Tue 07-Jun-16 14:01:05

I'm with you Op. I've never done it. It doesn't appeal to me. Not even sure I'd be able to!
