    I tend to be economical with the paper. Sometimes, at work, I hear people winding off what sounds like miles and miles of paper- several times over- what could they possibly be doing with it all? and where are they putting it?? Genuine answers sought. I have a quick wipe and I'm done. Am I missing something?

    Everyone has to poo! In fact, at one workplace we had a Bristol stool chart we would report on
    Might be the only chance to sit down all day in your job!

    I'm economical with number 1's and most number 2's but sometimes I need more if my diet hasn't been very good.

    I've worked in 2 call centres & both places timed toilet breaks with 5 minute maximum time allowed.

    I have horrific period troubles & I've been in trouble a few times.

    The first I was 7mins & my male team leader chipped me when I came out - I politely explained my heavy period (he never asked again)...

    Another time I got loud speakered to return to my desk - horrifying 😳😳 because then EVERYONE was asking where I'd disappeared to!?!

    Now I'm just honest, brutally honest!! I tell my boss if I got my period OR if I need a poo (if my toilet break is likely to be longer than 5mins) The pain on his face is worth it 😂😂😂

    Being timed is just awful. Call centres are brutal like that.

    My DH worked in one years ago and they made the staff keep 'toilet diaries' documenting all the times they left the phones to go, and the timing. Embarrassing stuff

    I would include pictures 😜 and take note of size, shape, colour ....

    They obviously made them keep diaries as they were concerned about their overall health and these details are important 😂

    Yep! Not a diary, but a journal!

    Example:

    10:15-10:18am - Took a dump. Didn't take long as the logs slipped out easily and didn't make a mess. Wiped but there was nothing on the paper - win! Feeling great about how quickly my toilet break was from start to finish.
