I think it’s safe to say that most of us moms have an innate aversion to the porta-potty and letting our kids use them, but this story may just give you an extra incentive (if that’s even possible), to avoid them.
Truth be told, I avoid porta potties like the plague and have often asked my kids to hold it until I could find a proper bathroom for them to use. While public bathrooms in and of themselves are less than ideal, a porta potty brings about a whole new area of crudeness.
But this story quite possibly takes top honors for most disturbing portable toilet story.
In Boulder, Colorado during a yoga festival, a peeping tom hid in the basin of a portable toilet before he was spotted and ran off “covered in feces.”
One woman braved the porta potty only to find something strange as she noticed that the tarp was moving beneath the bowl. She immediately suspected someone was hiding in it and called a nearby security guard.
The NY Daily News reports what happened next:
The guard waited outside until a lanky white man with no shoes or shirt came out, covered in poop. The suspect made a run for it and got away, cops said. Witnesses said the man was between 6-feet-4 and 6-feet-8 with short dark hair and leather cuffs on both wrists. He fits the description of a well-known Boulder bum known as “Sky,” cops said.
Cops are reportedly baffled as to how he squeezed into the tank.
Just when you thought the idea of a porta potty couldn’t possibly get worse, now you might have to check for peeping toms, too!
Do you ever let your kids use portable toilets?
