    People Pooping In Fitting Rooms Is A Thing That Shouldn’t Be A Thing

    It happens and this phenomenon is real.

    by ,

    Hello friends, there is a natural phenomenon that people working in retail know all too well. That phenomenon: people taking poops in fitting rooms.

    Still haven't gotten over the fact that someone took a dump in the fitting room today

    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.

    What are the problems with pooping in fitting rooms? The obstacles and consequences vary.

    From stepping in it...

    Can't believe a customer pooped in the fitting room and I stepped on it. -.-

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

    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?!

    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

    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

    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.

    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!

    So yeah, there's that.

    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: ?????????
