Why would anyone want to sit waiting for a poo? Unless they were were skiving at work of course.:rotfl:
im a girl and i hate the thought of reading in the loo
to imagine you sitting there pants round ankles, god knows what down the pan and your happily completing the crossword
and yeah its the hygene aspect too, luckily my OH only reads fishing mags in there so no danger of me touching them but look up how many germs you get on mags in dr's waiting rooms, how many would be on that book/mag you leave in the toilet??
i really dont understand why you do it
can you not find a nicer place to get 5 minutes, and any case im not allowed to pee on my own never mind read in there with my LO's
It's unusual to see me without a book though.
Funny in my house you can't say you're popping to the loo because there will be a massive stampede of small people who just have to go right now before you do. In fact that's what I do when we're going on a long journey, I start to head up the stairs and casually say I'm just going to the loo :rotfl:
Oh and if you manage to sneak in without them noticing it doesn't take long before they are all hammering on the door saying you need to come out because
'I need a wee right now/my sister bit me/I have to have my lunch it's 1pm/the cat is outside' or some other mysterious reason.
Haha, I do that too!!
I used to read the bottles in the bath too when I was younger!
