The next rule on our list is location, location, location! Don’t pick a stall that’s next to someone else who’s already using the toilet, pick one that’s at least a couple of stalls away, or on the other side of the bathroom if you can. Not only does this help you to keep your privacy, but the space will make any sounds and smells from your pooping less obvious. Oh, and while we’re on the subject of privacy, don’t talk to whoever’s in the stall next to you. Poop time really isn’t chat time, especially in a professional setting.
Courtesy flushes are your friend! And not just your friend, but the friend of everybody else in the bathroom right now. Make sure you try to flush as soon as the first your poop is in the toilet and flush again when you’ve finished, as this will keep any smells to a minimum. And make sure you check the bowl is clear of poop before you leave the stall, you don’t want to be that person who leaves a toilet full of stinky poop for someone else to flush after you.
Pooping at a date’s house
Pooping at your date’s house is not something anyone ever really wants to do, but sometimes circumstances are beyond your control and you have to just suck it up and poop. If you find yourself in this situation, remember our last tip and make sure you use your courtesy flushes wisely! I mean sure, they’ll probably hear that you’ve flushed two or three times, but it’s worth it when you consider that the alternative is them smelling what you just did in their bathroom.
