I work as a dental hygienist at a dental clinic in an ethnically diverse area. It’s a smaller clinic but we have lots of patients. There is only one bathroom and it only has one toilet. If you were to poop in there, the receptionist and patients would probably hear you and see you walking out because it’s right next to the reception area. They could smell it as well. And the fan isn’t even loud enough to hide sounds. And the dentist is close friends with the receptionist, so she would probably spread gossip to the dentist. Except for the dentist and the receptionist, all my coworkers are young lady hygienists who are either ethnically Indian or Korean. Since I finished community college and started working here, I don’t think any of us have moved our bowels at work. I’m friends with some of them so I asked about this. They said that they’re terrified that one day they’ll have to poop in that toilet and they’ll get caught. They can’t imagine the reaction in the reception area if they were struggling to control their bowels and had to use that toilet. I feel the same way. But I fear that one day, one of us Indian or Korean women will have an emergency. So how do you think we should handle it?

opo3 : There is a product called Poo Pourri available at Bed Bath and Beyond. You spray it on the surface of the water before you have a Bridesmaid or Best Man and it contains the odor.

When we were younger I had a friend who worked at a campgrounds and would tell me stories of trying to catch “the Phantom Shitter” who would sneak into the restroom and shit only on the floors… a mystery to this day..

Everybody poops- heh. I think people will just think- “Oh, sounds like she’s pooping.” Nothing really traumatic about it.

Ya gotta go when you gotta go. And really do people not have better things to talk about then someone pooping?

I started working about 15 months ago in an office building with multiple stalls and I was afraid of having to poop. Someone here recommended One Drop deodorizer, Amazon has it. Also put a paper seat cover into the bowl, it helps to muffle a splash.
But everybody poops.

Unless you have a problem with frequent diarrhea, then I wouldn’t worry about it. Read the book “Everyone Poops”.

We have “Poo-casso” at work: he’s the phantom pooper who finger paints his poo all over the walls….I wish I was kidding
I would get some spray, run the sink….every one poops. I wouldn’t worry about it.

I second running the sink… there are some bathrooms with very thin walls here!

It’s just pooping…what’s the big deal? If you are worried about the smell just buy some Poo Pourri like PP suggested. It’s silly that you are all worried about people finding out you do something that literally every person on the planet does.
If someone tried to gossip to me about the fact that a co-worker poops I’d look at them like they were insane. That’s not gossip it’s just a weird fascination with someone’s bowel movements.
