We've all been there but don't like to admit it. We've all kicked back
cubicles and suddenly felt something brewing down below. As much as we
convince ourselves otherwise, the WORK POOP is inevitable. For those who
pooping at work, following is the Survival Guide for taking a dump at
*CROP DUSTING* When farting, you walk really fast around the office so
smell is not in your area and everyone else gets a whiff, but doesn't
where it came from. Be careful when you do this. Do not stop until the
fart has been expelled. Walk an extra 30 feet to make sure the smell has
*FLY BY* The act of scouting out a bathroom before pooping. Walk in and
check for other poopers. If there are others in the bathroom, leave and
back again. Be careful not to become a FREQUENT FLYER. People may become
suspicious if they catch you constantly going into the bathroom.
*ESCAPEE* A fart that slips out while taking a pee or forcing a poop in
stall. This is usually accompanied by a sudden wave of embarrassment. If
release an escapee, do not acknowledge it. Pretend it did not happen. If
are a man and are standing next to the farter in the urinal, pretend you
not hear it. No one likes an escapee. It is uncomfortable for all
Making a joke or laughing makes both parties feel uneasy.
*JAILBREAK* When forcing a poop, several farts slip out at a machine gun
pace. This is usually a side effect of diarrhea or a hangover. If this
happen, do not panic. Remain in the stall until everyone has left the
bathroom to spare everyone the awkwardness of what just occurred.
*COURTESY FLUSH* The act of flushing the toilet the instant the poop
water. This reduces the amount of air time the poop has to stink up the
bathroom. This can help you avoid being caught doing the WALK OF SHAME.
*WALK OF SHAME* Walking from the stall, to the sink, to the door after
have just stunk up the bathroom. This can be a very uncomfortable moment
someone walks in and busts you. As with farts, it is best to pretend
smell does not exist. Can be avoided with the use of the COURTESY FLUSH.
*OUT OF THE CLOSET POOPER* A colleague who poops at work and is Doggone
of it. You will often see an Out Of The Closet Pooper enter the bathroom
a newspaper or magazine under their arm. Always look around the office
the Out Of The Closet Pooper before entering the bathroom.
*THE POOPING FRIENDS NETWORK (P.F.N)* A group of co-workers who band
to ensure emergency pooping goes off without incident. This group can
you to monitor the whereabouts of Out Of The Closet Poopers, and
*SAFE HAVENS* A seldom used bathroom somewhere in the building where you
least expect visitors. Try floors that are predominantly of the opposite
This will reduce the odds of a pooper of your sex entering the bathroom.
*TURD BURGLAR* Someone who does not realize that you are in the stall
tries to force the door open. This is one of the most shocking and
moments that can occur when taking a poop at work. If this occurs,
the stall until the Turd Burglar leaves. This way you will avoid all
uncomfortable eye contact.
*CAMO-COUGH* A phony cough that alerts all new entrants into the
that you are in a stall. This can be used to cover-up a WATERMELON, or
alert potential Turd Burglars. Very effective when used in conjunction
*SHIRLEY TEMPLE* A subtle toe-tapping that is used to alert potential
Burglars that you are occupying a stall. This will remove all doubt that
stall is occupied. If you hear a SHIRLEY TEMPLE, leave the bathroom
immediately so the pooper can poop in peace.
*WATERMELON* A poop that creates a loud splash when hitting the toilet
This is also an embarrassing incident. If you feel a Watermelon coming
create a diversion. See CAMO-COUGH.
*HAVANA OMELET* A case of diarrhea that creates a series of loud
the toilet water. Often accompanied by an Escapee. Try using a
with a SHIRLEY TEMPLE.
*AUNT BETTY* A bathroom user who seems to linger around forever...Could
extended lengths of time in front of the mirror or sitting on the pot.
AUNT BETTY makes it difficult to relax while on the crapper, as you
always wait to poop when the bathroom is empty. This benefits you as
the other bathroom attendees.
