My apologies if you find me pretty gross here... I just would want to know your views and experiences on this one... OK. I went off my desk for a bit and went to the toilet...there are actually three cubicles in our toilet, the one on the left was occupied so I checked the one in the middle and I found out the bowl was closed... I noticed the one on the right was vacant so I decided to use that one instead of trying my luck and opening the closed bowl...:P but what if there's only one bowl in your toilet and you were rushing in because of that feeling you needed to get outta your body only to find out that the bowl was closed, would you dare open it to see for yourself if it's clean and can be used? or would you just pee on the floor coz of the fear that you might be seeing a "monster" when you'd open it?:P or would you just wait 'till you can get out of the office and burst it all out when you get home? please share your thoughts..:P

I would probably flush the toilet first then hope it didn't overflow. Then using tissue paper lift the lid and look. That way hopefully I got rid of anything that might be lurking inside of it so I don't have to deal with it.

I'm a risk taker, but in this case I wouldn't open it! I would probably wait until I got home or see if there were another bathroom in the building... That's just me! ;)

lmao! what a question! wouldn't there be a smell if there was turd sitting in the bowl :) leering up at you just waiting to grab you. Just flush it away, this is your office toilet surely there are cleaners in the building. Flush the turd, do what you have to do then flush away, unless its a runny one. Now you may think I am being gross but people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, sometimes suffer diarrhoea, and sometimes it is incredibly messy or has a distinctive odour. It must be embarrassing for them to go to the loo, find the pan won't flush and either wait until it does or leave the lid down hoping the odour will go away. Hoping they can get back in a sec or two to flush and hoping the thing will flush. Finally people who suffer Cystic Fibrosis cannot digest food with out taking enzymes. They end up dropping huge turds and they have an odour. Just think of that next time you go to the loo, why did they leave the monster in the loo, perhaps it wouldn't flush and they where in a panic.

I heard from Seinfeld that is one of the most frightening events for a human being, if it doesn't come down it really is scary. O__o In response to the thread, I would flush first, then open.

LOL, I was imagining Rexy in the toilet wondering what to do..lol...;o) Of course I would have lifted it, obviously I wouldn't pee on the floor. It it was dirty I would have waited for the others to get vacant and if there was only one, then obviously would have opened it. Not usable then go to other toilets in the company..I'm sure there will be more

i see our friend started with the the toilet issue i continued and you are expanding. indeed a facenating issue..lol well i would have opened it for sure. because of my character..i am a curious girl..it dosn't matter when what and how i will need to see what is going on there..why wass the toilet bowl is closed..is it that worsed..or is it just an habit from home..you know alote of people close the bowl after they finish what they are supposed to do..and if it closed it must be a sign it can not be that bad cause the person cares about what other people would fill if the smell still stayed an so on..lol well i would sure open it..and will do what i need to do at home:)

Hello there! Yap! I would open the thing and would do as what would be necessary after that. You wouldn't know for sure what's there unless you open it. lol. If a yellow submarine or a yellowish molten lava is all there just flush the thing in. Tolerance for this sort of situation differs from person to person. For me, I won't mind that stuff. Now back to the situation. If the thingie there can be flushed, it means that somebody may have just forgotten to flush the thing (lol) and also, it would mean that the bowl is functioning properly. Now, after attempting to flush and it wouldn't, it would mean that the bowl is having a bad hair day. lol. BUT it would also mean that you have choices. Now, its up to you to act on the choices you have in mind. :D. You can take a leak or dump using the same bowl, take a leak on the floor (dumping on the floor is soooo gross, so leave that one out.. lol )OR just get out of there and look for another loo. The course of action regarding this matter depends on any given situation. What if... that would be your "moment" to really, I mean REALLY, take a dump. And you find those nasty thingie after opening the bowl and you can't flush ?! I would spare myself the humiliation of walking with a stinkin' behind and a soiled undies. Especially if it's in an office environment. I'd just take the dump right there and then.. and just think of it AFTER I unload. Worst case scenario : a case of LBM (your LBM) and its already your "moment" to unload and there's no turning back. :p LMAO ! Have a nice day!

Nah, I don't think it's a gross post. It's quite a good one enough. I have also come across what you described... and I did open such before. Guess what? No monsters pop out. But for the few cases I tried, it was either filled with sh*t or practically flooding with water. It's yucky but when you need to use a bowl, you've gotta try. :P Anyway I had to wait since I can't use the bowls in those cases too. Arghh...

I'd hold it 'til the occupied stall was vacant. I'm not brave;people are gross,and I'm not willing to look at someone's defecation. But then, I'm weary due to working at a motel that people like leaving the toilets unflushed when they leave. kinda sick,huh?

It is a serious issue that you raised Rexy. If i was bursting to go then i would definitely flush the toilet first then take a look if i can manage. I am a cleanliness freak so i understand what you mean but i would not like to mess up my clothes anyways.

Why is it that something humanly natural is gross? If I needed to go, I got to go! If I were in your situation, I dare open it. I dare open it or less I'll stain my pants, my underwear and my humanity. To add, I think one of the most satisfying experience is the feeling after "getting the dirt" out.

hey,well this is very interesting.i neva wud have imagine to hear this kinda discussion on mylot.Nways,i dont see it as a big deal coz everyone of us do the thing. so i will just open and do my stuff and flush if there is water in the closet.but if there is no water then i will just close it for the next user.lol....when i was a bit younger i use to think white people dont do the thing.but later i realise that everybody do it so i dont see anything in it.i dont think i can hold it for to long so i will do it if i get the chance to whether closed of opened
