When you gotta go, you gotta go. A young child couldn’t hold his number two any longer and turned to the only thing he could get to fast enough: a display toilet.
Caroline Akhtar was at B&Q, a U.K. home improvement retail store, with her partner and their children. The family was looking into buying a new washing line but ended up getting a little more than they bargained for.
When the parents’ backs were turned, their son, Jacob, left a mess in a nearby display toilet. The four-year-old popped a squat and completed a “very big poo” that his parents had to clean up afterwards.
Akhtar took to Facebook to share the story. She wrote: “Can’t quite believe what’s happened. J has taken a very big poo in one of the B&Q display toilets. Only went in for a washing line, turned around and J is sat on one of the toilets. Ran to say get off but it was very much too late.
“I left to get wet wipes and came back to him still sat on there because he ‘needed to finish’ and hubby didn’t know what else to do. The young shop assistant couldn’t stop laughing but also completely ignored the situation, don’t blame the lad.”
Naturally, both parents were mortified about the situation at first. It was only when they stepped back that they realized how funny it really was. Obviously, it still wasn’t much fun having to fish poo from the toilet.
As parents with small children, Akhtar was prepared and quickly walked back to their car to grab wet wipes and nappy bags. “He was still on the toilet so I proceeded to help wipe his bum still and explain about the toilets in shops are not actual toilets,” Akhtar said.
