    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...

    Oh Gosh

    I won't even go in portapotties. They are disgusting. I refuse to use them, at all. I hate public bathrooms enough as it is. But portapotties are like a million times worse. Yuck.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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, ...

    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...

    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.

    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.
