My Biggest Pet Pee-ve

It is bad enough when I have to use a public restroom, but using the lavatory on an airplane is just disgusting to me. When I fly, if I am not the very first person to use it, I try to hold it until I get to my destination. But on a four-hour flight? I have to break down. A 60-year-old bladder can only be expected to do so much.

Now, I realize that we are all human, and there are probably worse things than urine to worry about, but my biggest pet peeve is when I have to deal with someone else's "dribble" on the chamber pot. Since the person before me was male, I am going to be unfair and pick on the men (although I know that sometimes, women have some issue with the occasional dribble, too.

It looks like you are making use of all of your free time to post here on PP. Do you have 3G or 4G on your cellphone? I also hate sitting on the seats in an airplane lavatory.

I hate any kind of public bathroom for that reason. Glad that you looked first. I have been in a hurry and did not.

I can never use public toilets or even towels in public places. I have not flown in a while but I thought planes have separate toilets for men and women?

DawnWriter No, not on most planes that I know of. I cannot "hold it" that long to not use the toilet. Even if I don't drink water. When I travel, I have to be careful to make sure that I do drink enough because of some of the medical issues I face, if I do not drink enough.

I know what you mean. I have never used an airplane toilet. I just do not drink before going on the plane, though I do use the restrooms in the airport.
I probably should have made this into a post but when I was a student in University (I mean as an undergrad), I lived in the Halls of Residence, a big building with single rooms for students and shared bathrooms, showers and toilets. There was a toilet room for every few bedrooms, so only a few students used any particular toilet (all girls, as it was a "female" building). One of the students NEVER flushed the toilet after her, but I didn't know who it was. One other student found out who it was by watching the toilet door and checking after each use! We weren't brave enough to tackle it head on (I had no training in assertiveness in those days), so I drew a series of cartoons demonstrating HOW to flush a toilet. The culprit went into the toilet and came out laughing loudly, without even using it. We never had any trouble after that. I also had the same problem in the women's toilet in my last place of work but now I had the use of a computer at home so I got a piece of clip art showing a toilet and printed it out with the poem you show above and stuck it on the inside of the door.

I don't drink much before and I still have a bladder that wants to void. LOL
My biggest fear nowadays is that my gut will act in fits with this condition. Stress doesn't help, because the liver dumps serotonin into the system. However, I guess since I haven't eaten much, there isn't much for that. Thank goodness.

I have always loathed having to use public facilities. But you have to at times. You think airplane lavs are bad? Try a port-o-potty at the beach.

CoralLevang wrote on October 14, 2015, 9:38 AM

Been there, done that. Hate it.

It has been awhile since I had to hop a plane to anywhere, but I can see your issue. It would be a random act of kindness when people would clean up after themselves wherever.

I hear you. I hate public toilets. I find them all disgusting. And what I don't understand, how hard is it to actually wipe up after you're done? Meaning men. And I would think they would lift the seat.

WordChazer wrote on October 14, 2015, 4:48 PM

Sorry honey. The departmental toilet at work (and there is only one) is a shared facility. I get used to wiping up, flushing for others, putting the seat down... I know exactly what you mean but it's not going to happen any time soon.

I have seen that quote posted above the unisex bathroom in some of the smaller restaurants and bars I have visited over the years. K has trained me well to be sure that if my aim is less than true I clean up whatever misses the target.

For this reason, I always recommend other men to sit down to pee. Yes, it "insults their Machismo." But there are more important things than their "Machismo."
