Terrible things people post on social media

The ones that go around the base of the toilet? We’ve got one, i think it’s a bit minging but it does mean i can go for a wee barefoot in the night without getting my feet too cold.

If urine has splashed on the floor where my feet go when I’m peeing, a. I’d be having words with my bf about his aim, and b. is it any better if the piss is directly on the tiled floor as opposed to on a rug?

Rugs aren’t wipe clean

I’m still wondering how the piss is supposed to be getting so far away from the toilet. I’m pretty sure my feet when I’m on the loo are further away from the toilet than the hypothetical source of the urine would be - is he pissing backwards or just standing really far away? Do men piss on their own feet?

The house I live in now. Both bathrooms, ooo check me, had carpet and when I lifted them they both had a rank circle of stained underlay underneath the carpet. Bleurgh.

To be clear, occasionally it happens, you get a wild stream or else there are simply drips directly down from where the stream begins. On top of that it can splash out when impacting the toilet.

Obviously in the ideal world it never happens but when you’re half asleep or under the influence there can be piss not in the bowl. The former is why I tend to piss sitting down if I get up in the night, tbh.

I mean on top of that, I would imagine, like the vast majority of us, your boyfriend would notice and clean the floor when this happens. But cleaning a carpet isn’t really going to work out…

We’re talking about rugs here and whether there is an increased risk of stepping in piss, so he could put the rug in the washing machine. I’ve never gone to the loo in bare feet and noticed the rug was wet, anyway! To be clear, while I’m not a fan of the toilet rug, i don’t think, as someone jokingly suggested, that it’s a pissy feet risk! Bathroom carpets are just all round impractical for many reasons

Ah gotcha, rugs on normal bathroom floors.

Honestly I don’t know but chiefly I think it’s round the back of the toilet I consider the biggest risk of the occasional splash. The thing is you wash the normal tiles floor or whatever, it’s not going to matter but washing a carpet seems unlikely.

(Obviously our bath mat/rugs get machine washed too.)

My bathroom has a carpet.

“Listen son, I’m not here to be your mate…”

Ahh yes Tommy Shelby, perfect role model

I’ve been triggered by this comment.



a character from get out has a twitter account:

this kind of thing always ends with them telling on themselves:


This kind of shit makes me furious… and triggers an instant unfollow.

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment,.
The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, “We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days.”
The young clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations.”
The older lady said that she was right our generation didn’t have the “green thing” in its day. The older lady went on toexplain: Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.
But we didn’t have the “green thing” back in our day. Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.
But, too bad we didn’t do the “green thing” back then. We walked up stairs because we didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn’t have the “green thing” in our day.
Back then we washed the baby’s diapers because we didn’t have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days.
Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that young lady is right; we didn’t have the “green thing” back in our day.
Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house – not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana.
In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn’t have electric machines to do everything for us.
When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.
Back then, we didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power.
We exercised by working so we didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she’s right; we didn’t have the “green thing” back then.
We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn’t have the “green thing” back then.
Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family’s $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the “green thing.”
We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.
But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn’t have the “green thing” back then?
Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart ass young person. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off… Especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smartass who can’t make change without the cash register telling them how much.
