The Poop Factor!

I used to wish that I could go back to work. I missed the working world. Today, I am extremely glad that I can stay within the confines of my home, stay safe in it and allow my body to slowly heal.

Having lived with Idiopathic Anaphylaxis for almost 4 years now, I can tell you that periods of hyperacidity in the stomach and episodes of diarrhoea can turn the staunchest-anti-worshipper-of-any-man-made-object into a throne worshipper. That is, if that throne is in the safe confines of your home.
That is, IF that throne belongs to you!

Imagine having to use one those yucky public toilets EVERYTIME you have one of those inconsistent, explosive diarrhoeas! YUCKS!!

Enjoy the following Poop@Work! When I read the following, I knew I had to share it. If you don't enjoy this, you definitely have TOO MUCH poop in you. Now go and get it out of your system!


We've all been there but don't like to admit it. We've all kicked back in our cubicles and suddenly felt something a brew down below. As much as we try to convince ourselves, the WORK POOP is inevitable.

For those of you who hate pooping at work as much as I do, I give you the.........
Survival Guide for Taking a Dump at Work.

Memorize these definitions and pooping at work will become a pure pleasure.

A fart that slips out while taking a leak at the urinal or forcing poop in a stall. This is usually accompanied by a sudden wave of panic/embarrassment. This is similar to the hot flash you receive when passing an unseen police car & speeding. If you release an escapee, do not acknowledge it. Pretend it did not happen. If you are standing next to the farter at the urinal, pretend that you did not hear it. No one likes an escapee, it is uncomfortable for all involved. Making a joke or laughing makes both parties feel uneasy.

JAILBREAK (Used in conjunction with escapee): 
When forcing a poop, several farts slip out at a machine gun's pace. This is usually a side effect of diarrhea or a hangover. If this should happen do not panic, remain in the stall until everyone has left the bathroom so to spare everyone the awkwardness of what just occurred.

The act of flushing the toilet the instant the nose cone of the poop log hits the water and the poop is whisked away to an undisclosed location. This reduces the amount of air time the poop has to stink up the bathroom. This can help you avoid being caught doing the WALK OF SHAME.

Walking from the stall, to the sink, to the door after you have just stunk-up the shitter. This can be a very uncomfortable moment if someone walks in and busts you. As with all farts, it is best to pretend that the smell does not exist. Can be avoided with the use of a COURTESY FLUSH.

A colleague who poops at work and is damn proud of it. You will often see an Out of the Closet Pooper enter the bathroom with a newspaper or magazine under their arm. Always look around the office for the Out OF THE CLOSET POOPER before entering the bathroom.

This is a group of coworkers who band together to ensure emergency pooping goes off without incident. This group can help you to monitor the whereabouts of OUT OF THE CLOSET POOPERS and identify SAFE HAVENS.

A seldom used bathroom somewhere in the building where you can least expect visitors. Try floors that are predominantly of the opposite sex. This will reduce the odds of a pooper of your sex entering the bathroom.

A pooper who does not realize that you're in the stall and tries to force the door open. This is one of the most shocking and vulnerable moments that occur when taking a dump at work. If this occurs, remain in the stall until the TURD BURGLAR leaves. This way you will avoid all uncomfortable eye contact. TURD BURGLARS have been know to cause premature pinchage, which inevitably causes you to pinch one off in the middle.

A phony cough which alerts all new entrants into the bathroom that you are in a stall. This can be used to cover-up a WATERMELON or to alert potential TURD BURGLARS. Very effective when used in conjunction with an ASTAIRE.

This is a subtle toe-tap that is used to alert all potential TURD BURGLARS that you are occupying a stall. This will remove all doubt that the stall is occupied. If you hear an ASTAIRE, leave the bathroom immediately so the pooper can poop in peace.

A turd that creates a loud splash when hitting the toilet water. This is also an embarrassing incident. If you feel a WATERMELON coming on, create a diversion. See CAMO-COUGH.

A load of diarrhea that creates a series of loud splashes in the toilet water. Often accompanied by an escapee. Try using a CAMO-COUGH with an ASTAIRE.

A bathroom user who seems to linger around forever. Could spend extended lengths of time in front of the mirror or sitting on the pot. An UNCLE TED makes it difficult to relax while on the crapper, as you should always wait to drop your load when the bathroom is empty. This benefits you as well as the other bathroom attendees.

FLY BY: The act of scouting out a bathroom before pooping. Walk in, check for other poopers. If there are others in the bathroom, leave and come back again. Be careful not to become a FREQUENT FLYER. People may become suspicious if they catch you constantly going into the bathroom.


  • GHOST Poop: The kind where you feel the Poop come out, but there is no Poop in the toilet.
  • CLEAN Poop: The kind where you Poop it out, see it in the toilet, but there is nothing on the paper.
  • WET Poop: The kind where you wipe your butt 50 times and it still feels un-wiped, so you have to put some toilet paper between your butt and your underwear so you don't ruin them with a stain.
  • SECOND WAVE Poop: This happens when you're done Pooping and you've pulled your pants up to your knees, and you realize that you have to Poop some more.
  • POP-A-VEIN-IN-YOUR-FOREHEAD-Poop: The kind where you strain so much to get it out, you practically have a stroke.
  • LINCOLN LOG Poop: The kind of Poop that is so huge you're afraid to flush without first breaking it into little pieces with the toilet brush.
  • GASSEY Poop: It's so noisy, everyone within earshot giggles.
  • DRINKER Poop: The kind of Poop you have the morning after a night of drinking. Its most noticeable trait is the skid marks on the bottom of the toilet.
  • CORN Poop: (Self-explanatory)
  • GEE-I-WISH-I-COULD-Poop-Poop: The kind where you want to Poop, but all you do is set on the toilet and fart a few times.
  • SPINAL TAP Poop: This is when it hurts so badly coming out you'd swear it was leaving you sideways.
  • WET CHEEKS Poop: (The Power Dump). The kind that comes out of your butt so fast, your butt cheeks get splashed with water.
  • LIQUID Poop: The kind where yellowish-brown liquid shoots out of your butt and splashes all over the toilet bowl.
  • MEXICAN Poop:It smells so badly that your nose burns.
  • UPPER CLASS Poop: The kind of Poop that has no odor.
  • THE SURPRISE Poop: You are not at the toilet because you think you are about to fart but...oops...a Poop!!!
  • THE DANGLING Poop: This Poop refuses to drop into the toilet even though you know you are done Pooping it. You just pray that a shake or two will cut it loose.

      I laughed until tears rolled down my cheeks! It's reassuring to know everyone has these experiences.

      So I have to share my most horrifying Work Poop experience and I'll try to make it short and quick. Teaching 1st grade art, clean up time is about to begin, it only lasts 10 minutes at which time their teacher returns, collects kids and another class is at the door waiting to come in. Besides not having the time, my classroom is located a mile away from the nearest bathroom. My intestines start to hurt so badly I think my colon is being ripped out of my abdomen. I don't have a choice. I run to the backroom where the supplies are kept, frantically looking for a solution: the sink? No, a large 5 gallon bucket that is empty. I yell out the door in my sweetest voice praying those little 1st graders aren't throwing water on each other, "I see everyone doing a wonderful job cleaning up. Five more minutes." I close the door, squat over the bucket, use a paper towel, cover the bucket, walk out into the classroom as if everything is normal with perspiration rolling down my face. The little evil first graders sitting at their tables with their hands folded looking like angels...I trained them well.

      What a nightmare! Memories of teaching. Blah.
