I was in the loos at Costco when the person in the next cubicle started spraying perfume. Next thing I know, a mist of perfume lands on me from above. She had sprayed over the cubicle wall!

And because she didn't like the smell of the cubicle next to her, I'm now itching and scratching, because I'm having an allergic reaction to her perfume.

AIBU to think people poo in loos and you just have to accept that there may be some transient pong until they've flushed? And that you certainly don't spray other people with your own pong?!

yanbu.

I am asthmatic and if I had had a face full of perfume I would have been in trouble.

Shit doesn't smell nice this is true. But it is the sort of smell you have to expect in a loo!

Have you heard of the courtesyflush? If you use the loo in public to poo, always courtesy flush: a flush as soon as you’ve done stage 1 to immediately sweep it away. Then a later flush when you’re actually finished.

I love perfume but never put it on in public because of this. Dont toilets have air conditioning anyway? confused

That is utterly ridiculous behaviour! Did you tell her she was being a total jerk?

gamerchick Fri 24-Nov-17 14:55:36

Although I wouldnt be happy if someone did that to me. I hope you gave her a mouthful!

GuntyMcGee Fri 24-Nov-17 14:56:07

Weren't you tempted to chuck a turd or at the very least a bit of poo stained paper under the door at her feet?

Yanbu.

People who get so precious over a bloody bog get right on my tits. What on earth do they think it's for?!?

Always the same people twittering on about people should wait till they get home - well maybe they and their ridiculous expectations should wait hmm

Shame you didn't stealth follow her farting grin

There was an OP on here the other day who was spraying perfume on the bus. Maybe it's her and she's taking over the world one public space at a time?

I never get why people making a fuss about a toilet smelling. I mean someone having a poo in a toilet is hardly shocking!

Also who sprays that much perfume in public? Just because you like your perfume doesn’t mean everyone around you does

MissFlashpants Fri 24-Nov-17 14:58:13

Don't you get a wet arse with a courtesy flush?

Who the fuck doesn't manage to deal with the smell of shit in a toilet?

OP I would have been fuming.

Heard of it and it's a ridiculous waste of water. I'll save my extra flushing for the unflushable ones thanks!

TrojansAreSmegheads Fri 24-Nov-17 14:59:39

I don't do that since I read about how you should always close the loo lid before flushing because of microscopic particles being flung into the air. I read how toothbrushes should not be kept next to loos because of this (they did tests and found poo!)

So then I thought hang on, if I am sitting on the loo when I flush, I am getting a full force spray!

(I may read too much and get out too little grin )

I have never heard of the courtesy flush confused

Like a pp said, wouldn't you get a wet bum?

She was very rude spraying perfume.

British stiff upper lip thing would to be pretend it isnt happening and complaining later in private

Which is what I'm doing blush

'Courtesy flush' my arse. A complete waste of water and energy, plus discomfort or mucky inconvenience for me.

Could someone clarify please exactly what is stage 1?

I think maybe my experience is different from others ...

tumblrpigeon Fri 24-Nov-17 15:16:20

Nah, it’s ok.
It’s nearly Christmas.
Cheer TFU

tumblrpigeon Fri 24-Nov-17 15:17:01

Yup, op , agree courtesy flush is bollocks.

fourquenelles Fri 24-Nov-17 15:20:17

extinctspecies when you've dropped the kids off at the swimming pool.

Carly767 Fri 24-Nov-17 15:21:14

Also bemused as what a stage one poo is?....
