    Potty Training 101

    I have always hated portajohns. I dislike the smell of them. I hate the way they make me feel closed in and clausterphobic. I think it is absolutely disgusting looking down into the pit of toilet paper and feces swirled with bright blue liquid! My worst experience inside one was...

    On Hovercraft and Rockette Maneuvers..my Coping Mechanisms!

    Dear God...Is there anything nastier than these things?? I will go buy a soda somewhere to avoid using one of these things at a festival or craft fair. Otherwise, I wait as long as I possibly can before I will force myself into one of those disgusting boxes-o-crap. As far as...

    Disgusting

    Probably my worst nightmare at an outdoor rock concert is having to use one. I only use these disgusting boxes when there is absolutely no other alternative available to me.

    Yes I Do Hate the Nasty Vile Things

    Having a phobia of germs leads me to hate “portajohns.”  I will never again use a portajohn choosing rather to go outside on the ground before I will utilize one. (Like I am ever gonna pee outside nope- no way- no how!!!)  I was at a NFL game of course...

    Is There Anybody That Likes Them??

    The worst is the little ones. You're at a baseball game, an outdoor fair or festival, or any number of other places... and the little one says "Mommy, I have to go" Christ, right now? Please no. Can't you hold it? Well, the answer is no, as most children under the age...

    Portajohns

    The reason i hate portajohns is because whenever i'm in one i feel like someone's gonna knock it down... Even when im in a park in the middle of now where in a portajohn... i feel like some evil sprite is gonna jump out and knock it down.. and then i'll be covered in portajohn...

    Skeevy!

    Portajohns are about 100 times worse than public restrooms, and I don't like them either. They smell bad, you feel closed in and claustrophobic, and what if someone outside gets bored and wants to knock it over? I say no thank you to Portajohns.

    I'm With You On That One!

    I only go into those things in ABSOLUTE EMERGENCIES We used to have a sort of portajohn at our summer cabins many years ago before regular toilets were available in summer cabins (I'm talking about (1976-1987) Grandpa built an outhouse where it was just a large (not sure what...

    Yeah... No.

    I'd rather do my business in a bush or a hole in the ground than use one of these things. They're smelly, cramped, and just generally irritating. Plus, I always feel like I'm going to catch some sort of horrible airborn illness whenever I go into one. Just... eww. No, no, no, a...

    Especially When It's Hot Out

    I hate having to use them at all, but it's worse when it is hot out. The inside is extremely hot, and the smell is even worse. I'm pretty much sweating while I'm in there, and I'm always scared that the smell is going to stick to my skin because of that. I try to avoid using them...

    Who Doesn't?

      Blech. Nothing as gross as a Portajohn. I don't like public restrooms in the first place and try not to use them whenever possible. But these are beyond the normal public restroom. Hot, smelly, dark, lucky if there is paper...

    Toilet, Please!

    I cannot remember the last time I ever resorted to using one, probably because I try very hard to avoid that situation. Just... the thought of "adding to" piles and piles of other people's... stuff... No. I can't.

    Um...ew?

    I'm grossed out by public bathrooms. I try my best not to use one and trained myself to pretty much go all day without using the potty even if I had a zillion things to drink. What's worse than a public bathroom? Porta potties! Those are the most gross things ever invented. I...

    Or any public toilet for that matter; but porta-loos in particular. No matter what time of the day, they are always humid, sticky, and smelly. And what's more annoying is having to wait for ages in a queue to use the abominable thing! I make it worse for myself, too, ...
