6. It’s really a thing and it’s time for this phenomenon to be explored.

Someone literally just took a shit on the floor of the fitting room at my work. Like they literally popped a squat & shit. Who does that.

26. Another * positive * thing we do know is: If you sit in someone’s shit at Victoria’s Secret you may get a $100 gift card.

Victoria secret gave me $100 gift card for sitting in someone's poop in there dressing room .. Kinda worth sitting in shit ... Lmao

27. So, why does this happen? Why do people shit in fitting rooms?

28. Well we don’t really know. What we can do is try to understand the poopers. What are they thinking? Why would they do it? How? What. The. Fuck?!

29. It could just be that they really have to poop.

That #AwkwardMoment when you are undressed in the fitting room and you realize you have to poop sooo bad!! Lol

— Meghan Conway (@MegKConway)

30. It could be lack of store bathrooms.

I was just informed that last weekend, someone took a shit in the fitting room since we don't have bathrooms in our store. #what

— Julian Bachu (@JulianBachu)

31. Or, what is really seems like, is that people really just like taking craps in fitting rooms.

Life is too precious to pass up the opportunity to take a dump in an Abercrombie dressing room.

— Nikki (@Squirreljustice)

You haven't lived until you've taken a dump in a men's fitting room. Victory is mine!

33. For deeper reading, here’s a more detailed account from the Experience Project of someone who pooped in a fitting room. It provides a unique perspective:

Ok. So i was at hot topic trying to find some really skinny jeans to fit me. And while I was putting some on that were way too small for me, I had this horrific pressure on my butt. I had to go soo bad! I hadn’t gone in two days cause I was saving up for the weekend ;) So I tried to hold it in as best as I could and take off those pants so I could leave and go to the restroom. nope. that didn’t happen. they were not coming off. I was squirming every-which-a-way trying to get em off. But no. So eventually I gave up and was like screw it. I turned, looked at my butt in the mirror and just let loose. It was SOO loud! It was the loudest thing ever! My pants were all crackling and popping and the poop was tenting out my jeans. It was huge!

34. So yeah, there’s that.

35. In conclusion, this mystery will never be solved. Until then, DON’T SHIT IN FITTING ROOMS.

Dear customer who pooped in a fitting room, used a pant hanger as toilet paper, wiped your hands on the wall, left, and came back: ?????????

36. And for those curious, here is an example of what a shit in a dressing room looks like. THIS IS A GRAPHIC IMAGE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. REALLY WARNED.
