Do you close the bathroom door when you pee?

  1. OK, so from the title of this thread you might infer that it was inspired by my last break away from the computer to "take care of business." It just got me to wondering, am I the only lazy slob who doesn't close the door when she pees?

    I live w/ my bf and my dog. My bf was in an accident that left him paraplegic since August 2002 and let's just say w/ his learning intermittent cathing and bowel care, there's not much that's sacred between us any more! The dog, well he pees in public (and occasionally on the carpet) so I could give a hoot what he thinks!

    Am I the only uncouth person out there?

    No your not. Just me and the cat and an animal that licks it's own anal area in public is not going to worry about an open toilet door. Actually as it is a fairly small apartment I have the "kitty litter" in a deep box next to the loo (might as well have one place a bit wiff rather than two) and sometimes while I am there I am "attending to business" she joins me. Trouble is she often goes crazy trying to "bury the smell" not realising it is from me!!

    Nope. Just a tad claustophobic (sp.?) so I really never shut the door.. especially as ours is a tiny bathroom... but even in bigger ones I don't remember shutting them unless there are guests in the house.

    And in oublic "stalls" I rush through my business as quickly as possible just to get out of those tiny cubicles... and must admit I do use the larger, more open handicapped one whenever possible ... just can't take the "closed in, can't breathe" feeling.

    Oddly enough, tho', a MRI doesn't bother me ! It's jsut small rooms. And be backed up into a corner... watch the claws come OUT !!!

    I usually go outside and water the trees.
    We have no neighbors and I'm mostly outside anyway.
