Toilet Brush Fiasco

I’ve bailed twice in the last few days at buying a toilet brush. I think it’s as embarrassing and lurid a thing to buy as it gets. ‘Yeah for those messy dumps I’ve been taking lately, thanks’. I hid it under a towel in my basket while I was browsing then ditched it at the last minute before heading down to the checkout. I remember when I worked on a checkout a guy in his 60s bought a porn magazine from me tucked inside his Sunday newspaper. That felt fine, I felt no disgust. I think I felt warm towards him. There’s no convention, when you’re buying a toilet brush, for letting the person know you’re ashamed and yet I badly want that. Also, men’s urinals, get rid of them, immediately.

  1. Haha this is so true. Have you ever gone to the store to buy only a plunger?? This happened to me recently and I found myself wandering around the establishment trying to conjure up other items to buy so that the checker wouldn’t think “Wow this guy had to make a special trip to the store because there was that much poop.” I ended up only buying the plunger and boy howdy was it an excruciatingly painful experience.

      • I suppose you are right, though for whatever reason in my mind I associate plungers with human poop as the toilet is the only application on which I’ve used one. But I’ll keep the sink in mind next time this happens haha

  2. This is hilarious. I’d never think to be embarrassed about a toilet brush. In my mind, buying a toilet brush makes me a clean person. I’d be proud of the fact that I’m heading home to scrub my bathroom. But I’m a weirdo, so maybe don’t listen to me.

    • Nah youre right I made it more a big deal than it is. That’s occurred to me a couple of times since I posted this. That said, I only ended up getting one when I added it to my ‘click and collect’ grocery pickup. God bless the internet.
