to feel faintly nauseous when people wee like horses?

There seem to be two types of people in this world. Those who can wee quietly and discreetly and those who attempt to crack open the bottom of the pan and sound like they are pouring a kettle full of water into it.

AIBU to suggest that, although a natural process, urinating should be a private process??

I pressume they shut the door, so therefore what else do you want?

For some reason, sounds are amplified in public toilets so unless someone has put paper down, it is going to sound loud.

doesn't bother me at all, but if it bothers you to hear it, then why not wait until public toilets are empty before going in? or stick your walkman on before you go in.

FGS, the world has gone mad.

Ah but isn't it when you "hover" that the stream sounds equine?

If I sit on the loo normally, I sound ladylike [enough].

But I would never sit normally in a public loo. Bleurgh

We had platerers in on Monday skimming the stairs, try as I might I HAD to go to the loo whilst they were working, I cannot wee quietly. grin

But bless the gadgey working just outside my bathroom started to whistle at the appropriate moment. LOL

Another one here who sounds like a horse taking a piss. Probably because I squat over the public toilet to avoid sitting on it.

I've always been rather jealous of those ladies that do dainty little wees.

Oh dear god. Some people are just people-phobic. I suggest you avoid communal and public loos in future.

the problem with putting paper down in public toilets is that it is usually the rock hard greaseproof arse cutting stuff which makes the horse piss sound worse by crackling sounds on top.

I struggle at work - it's only the disabled toilet where you can have a bit of peace, and then everyone thinks you are going in for a pooh...

Still, whatever, it was just a bit of light-hearted fun prompted by an earlier visit to the ladies. No need for knicks to be knotted

Those of you who 'squat' on public loos... are you not setting yourselves up for the risk of a slight dribble finding its way down your thigh? The thought of this has always terrfied me far more than the thought of touching a public loo seat.

I think my wee varies between tinkle, hiss and horse, depending on how full my bladder is and how my bikini area is styled. Generally if you position yourself so that you aim for the porcelain rather than the water, it will sound quieter.

The sound of weeing doesn't bother me in the loos - and I giggle out loud if someone farts!

PMSL - sounds like gagamama is an expert public pisser grin LMAO

gagamama Thu 04-Jun-09 14:20:10

It's true, when it comes to wee I certainly know my shit. Erm, piss. grin

dp does that before bed, with the door open.

sounds like someone pouring a gallon bucket and goes on for about ten minutes.

jumpingbeans Thu 04-Jun-09 15:20:46

Gagamama, how the hell can you aim?

jumpingbeans Thu 04-Jun-09 15:21:38

most days i'm just grateful i have made it to the bathroom

donnymouse Thu 04-Jun-09 15:40:48

YANBU - it makes me feel BOAK too.

Hilarious thread. Hoverer's beware!
I once tried this on honeymoon (nasty Spanish public loos) and the toilet wasn't bolted to the floor! It gave me such a scare that I didn't need to go anymore, but then had to explain to dh why I needed to go again 10 minutes later blush

fruitshootsandheaves Thu 04-Jun-09 15:59:01

I often wonder how many people think I am unblocking the toilet before I use it when my mooncup makes a slurpy sucky noise.
