I was out yesterday with my children. Dd suddenly tells me she needs the toilet. Holding herself and crossing her legs. We are on a long stretch of road! Nothing but houses! And a bus stop she gets more and more desperate. So I say ok quickly come here find a corner next to the bus stop and let her crouch down. Waiting and I see no wee. So I'm like quickly get up people are coming. You obviously didnt really need to go. As she stands up I see it's a poo!! Not a wee!! Im humiliated. I would never have allowed her to poo on the floor if I had realised that's what it was but she was just holding herself as if she needed a wee! I still feel bad today as it's by the bus stop! Wibu by not going back to clean it. confused

Oh god, you really should pick it up, we mean at dog owners who don't pick up after their dogs.

Maybe poo hags for dc should be a thing to keep in handbags along with the rest of dp paraphernalia. .

Oh my, yes! You really should have cleaned up after your child, why would you leave your childs poo on the floor nxt to the bus stop? Surely u had a plastic bag of some sort to scoop it up in hmm

Honestly I had nothing in my hands!! No bags nothing. And it was runny anyway sorry tmi!! But I feel so embarrassed today incase anyone in the houses seen.

Poor kid! Is she sick?

AgentProvocateur Wed 16-Aug-17 13:50:29

Sorry, I know she's only a child, but that's grim.

OhhBetty Wed 16-Aug-17 13:50:34

Ugh it's really disgusting that you didn't clean it up, or at least go back to clean it? If she's quite young surely you would at least have wet wipes? And usually there are bins next to bus stops.

Crumbs1 Wed 16-Aug-17 13:50:47

How old is she? Poor child. These emergencies happen and trying to clean it up might make more mess. Perhaps next time knock on a door and ask to use the loo?

sororitynoise Wed 16-Aug-17 13:54:54

Grim but quite funny! grin

You couldn't have predicted she was gonna take a shit at the bus stop but at least now you're prepared for the eventuality and won't let it happen again.

10greenapples Wed 16-Aug-17 13:55:17

Well she showed no signs of being unwell that's why it was totally unexpected. No wet wipes or anything.

midnightmisssuki Wed 16-Aug-17 13:55:48

you didn't go back to pick it up?! shock That is vile. Sorry - i feel terrible for your child - she sounds as if she had a bad tummy etc, but you really should have gone back to clean up.

NetMumsBastards Wed 16-Aug-17 13:59:44


I'm a dog owner and pick up after my do every time she has a poo (and I even put it in the bin rather than leaving it dangling from a tree).

I feel terrible if it leaves skid marks or I can't get every last bit up. Meanwhile, you've left an actual human shit by a bus stop. Go back and clean it up.

It was quite late so I would have had to go back to clean it after 9 o'clock which would mean dragging all the kids with me to clean it! I do feel bad sad

LostInShoebiz Wed 16-Aug-17 14:03:00

So rank.

Something to think about for the future, be prepared!

Greyponcho Wed 16-Aug-17 14:03:21

Shit happens, that's life.
It's not as if you're planning on making a habit of it, I think I'd forgive you for not cleaning it up straight away but could you really not ask one of the houses for a bucket of water to wash it away?

LostInShoebiz Wed 16-Aug-17 14:03:47

I'd use a sock or something before choosing to leave actual human shit on the ground.

sororitynoise Wed 16-Aug-17 14:04:59

I live in Bristol and there seems to have been a real spat of human turds being left by doorstops, the doctor surgery and even the churches..

Emmageddon Wed 16-Aug-17 14:05:06

Couldn't you have sprinkled soil over it, or a handful of grass? That's really unpleasant. If a dog owner walked away from excrement, there would be outrage.

PantPlot Wed 16-Aug-17 14:05:21

Oh come on. It's a one off, it wasn't an intentional act of yackness.

10greenapples Wed 16-Aug-17 14:06:44

Again no socks!! I was wearing those ballerina type pumps I don't wear socks with them and the kids had sandals on. People are acting like I knew she was gonna poo! This was around 9 o'clock and the closest houses had no lights on and tbh people were walking up the street and I didn't want them to shout at us so I quickly walked away.

worridmum Wed 16-Aug-17 14:10:59

Well people get fined for weeing in the street and often forced to clean it up just be glad the police were not around as they could if forced you to clean it up.

Sayhellotothemoomoos Wed 16-Aug-17 14:11:46

Do you drive? Is it far from where you live? If so I'd go back and try to clear it up.

I think you're getting a hard time. It IS disgusting but I doubt many people would foresee their child taking a shit on the floor.

How old is she?

Topseyt Wed 16-Aug-17 14:11:59

You need to go back and clean it up now. Us dog owners have to clean up dog's poo. We can face hefty fines too if we don't. I think it is fair enough of any of us to say that the same should apply to human poo. Someone could step in it FFS. Would you like to have to clean someone else's shit off your shoes?

Go back now with nappy sacks and kitchen roll and do the best you can.

NetMumsBastards Wed 16-Aug-17 14:14:24

Could you not have waited, explained the situation and asked any of them if they had a bag or some tissue to clear it up with?
