To ask my husband to do a dump upstairs???

Seriously he is driving me round the bend. 3 times a day massive sh!ts in the downstairs loo that stink whole house out. Is it too much to ask he goes upstairs with a window open?
I should add our downstairs loo is in the middle of the house so it seeps everywhere, he is also on medication that makes it smell even worse than normal. I am physically heaving. He thinks I am over reacting but after mentioning it everyday for months I have had enough!

Is there a window in your downstairs loo?

Jakeyboy1 Sat 22-Apr-17 13:26:44

Yes but doesn't help the initial aroma escaping. It is BAD.

I have this with my husband, he will literally come down from his office, which is in the third floor, walk past two loos on the way and poop in the downstairs one, stinking the whole downstairs out. I genuinely have no clue why he does it. Then invariably someone comes to the door and your house smells like shite. Why go the extra mile to poop downstairs. 😳😳😳😳😳

Why wouldn't he just use the upstairs toilet after you'd mentioned it the first time?? Sounds like he doesn't give a shit (grin) that you find it disgusting..

Have you tried that VIPoo they're advertising on the TV at the moment? Might be worth a go!

Jakeyboy1 Sat 22-Apr-17 13:32:13

@Watto1 VIpoo? Must google! Does it also clean up afterwards?!

DonaldStott Sat 22-Apr-17 13:32:26

Oh god that's gross.

I would have to make a rule that nobody can have a poo downstairs.

Or buy some V.I.Poo

Asmoto Sat 22-Apr-17 13:32:29

I'm assuming it's the medication causing the frequency and volume of his shits as three huge ones sounds a lot! Yes, I think either he should go upstairs or stay in the downstairs loo after flushing with the door closed and window open until the aroma has dispersed.

@Asmoto no the medicine doesn't cause it as such, am not too sure on size just judging by stench -sorry TMI!

My DH is very respectful in this dept. In the evening our DS objects vocally to any poo because the loo is outside his bedroom door and he doesn't like to sleep with the door closed. We have an en suite but that's on my side of the bed, so for the same reason I don't want him pooing there either.

So while I am putting DS to bed, DH will pop to the shops for a few bits and a shit! God bless him and 24hr Asda.

According to the advert, you squirt VIPoo into the pan, then do what you have to do and no smell escapes. I doubt it could have coped with my dear departed dad though. To quote Billy Connolly, you needed a canary in a cage if you went in the bathroom after him!

Stormwhale Sat 22-Apr-17 13:41:26

Meh is that a joke? If so I really feel for your husband. I would tell either you or your ds to get a grip and let the poor man crap in his own home.

Op, I feel as there is another option available (upstairs loo) your dh is being really disrespectful actually. I would get quite cross now as you asking nicely hasn't got you anywhere.

Jakeyboy1 Sat 22-Apr-17 13:41:30

@Mehfruittea well trained. After 15 years you'd think I had him trained. He didn't used to shit downstairs in our old house I'm not sure why the change!

Asmoto Sat 22-Apr-17 13:41:38

Has he mentioned it to the doctor if it's not down to his medication - it would be worth getting it checked out because it does sound unusual (I'm happy to be corrected if others think three times a day is common - only going by experience on this).

There are four of us here most of the time, and five when DD1 is home from university. We have two toilets, one being downstairs.

There would be uproar if I tried to dictate where everyone could take a shit and it is bloody amazing how several of them seem to need to go at once. So I suppose my answer is no, I don't think you can say that.

I do tell mine that they should open the window after themselves, and close the door after leaving the room, leaving the window open to clear smells without wafting too much through the house.

At the end of the day, it is a toilet and is there for shitting in.

Jakeyboy1 Sat 22-Apr-17 13:42:25

@Watto1 worth a try. Preferably upstairs!

MimiSunshine Sat 22-Apr-17 13:44:05

Nope I have a 'no poo in the downstairs loo' rule for the same reason. My bf says he prefers it as it has the best flush (it does have the best pressure admittedly) but the rule is the rule

Scrubba Sat 22-Apr-17 13:45:46

Meh, that's hilarious! grin

Op, LTB!

Only half joking .... my stbxh shits in the downstairs loo that is right by the front door ... makes opening the door to the postman really bloody embarrassing! I cannot wait to move into my own home and state my own ground rules of no shitting downstairs. It's going to be bliss.

UppityHumpty Sat 22-Apr-17 13:49:26

We have a rule in the house that all adult poos are upstairs and the downstairs loos is only for wees/kids.

bingbongnoise Sat 22-Apr-17 13:51:38

3 massive shits a day? confused Sounds a lot.

YANBU. He should go upstairs.

WhatALoadOfOldBollocks Sat 22-Apr-17 14:01:44

OP, have you asked him what his reasons for not wanting to use the upstairs loo rather than stink the downstairs part of the house out? Maybe he can't smell his own shit?confused
