  • Happened to me once in a restaurant. I leaned my head out the door and screamed for the whole restaurant to hear, "Hey! The bathroom is out of toilet paper!" Moments later a manager came and handed me a roll, apologizing profusely, and offering me a discount on my meal. I took the roll, slammed the door, finished up, and walked out without paying. Manager offered me a whole booklet of coupons, and I said, "Put it in the bathroom for the next customer to use." I don't always have great comebacks, but I was proud of that one.

  • I get up without lifting my pants and move to another stall if it's a small and empty bathroom. If there are others around I would ask someone (another person did that a few days ago). Else, I always wear socks and boxers. Just flush them when I'm done.

  • Girls poop? 😳

    In an emergency, use your panties as toilet paper, throw them out, and go commando. You don't want to be caught waddling to the next stall, do you?

  • This is personally why I don't use the public bathroom for #2!!! Never have and never will. Have had so many close accidents because of this though lol.

    I'd imagine I'd have my cell phone with me though, so I can call the store I'm in an have them replenish while I'm there lol. If not I... GUESS, I'd have to *sigh* pull up my pants and rush home unclean.
    Ewwwe, yuck, yuck.

  • Thankfully I have never had to shit at a public restroom. I guess if I was in that scenario I would wait until I get home to wipe. Unless it was emmergency I would probably just not shit in the first place if I noticed that there wasn't any toilet paper in the stall.

    Or, upon noticing that there isn't any toilet paper I could tell someone who works there that they are out of toilet paper and then take my shit after they have remedied the situation.

      I guess? The whole thing of having a jet of water wierds me out but that's just cultural differences I guess.

      I assumed you must use something else, but from the amount of guys in this comment section saying they use nothing... yeah. You can see where I'm coming from.

      @BaileyisDarcy

      Yes, you are actually, it's cultural differences and differences in bathroom habit also. In India as the thought of toiler paper disgusts us, the opposite is in US, if you mention the word washing using water over there, they will automatically find it disgusting, I think it's just natural. India and US are opposites in bathroom habits.

      Just as you said using hand held bidet weirds you out. Yes, I know that was not your fault, I should have been clear in my first opinion itself.

  • Pull up my underwear and just go. What's the worst that could come from that? Just gonna wash them when I get home.

  • No stalls have toilet paper or just the one I'm in? If other stalls have some I'd just walk out butt naked to another stall.

    If that's not a possibility then I'd use my boxer shorts then, wash my hands extensively, and just go commando the rest of the day.

  • I'd first flush the toilet. Then I'd use my hand and the water in the bowl to try and clean ass as best as I can. Then wash my hands in the sink really really good. Idc if there is no paper towels I can live with a clean wet hands for awhile. They'll dry.

  • I usually try to check first (it actually saved me from this exact scenario once) but I don't always remember to.

    I've used the cardboard roll it comes on before.

    Most of the time I have a napkin or at least a note pad with me I could use.

    Assuming neither above option is viable, I'd wait until everyone else was gone and check all other stalls.

    Still nothing, I'd probably pull pants and underwear up, and go seek out another bathroom.

  • My husband and I -- and our 2 older kids (and our youngest kid, soon enough) -- ALWAYS carry AT LEAST one of these:

    (... or the equivalent, in a ziploc bag)

    You should, too.

    Honestly, I don't understand how people can even feel fully clean using just dry toilet paper. Eeeeeecchh.

    Seriously, people. Try "cleaning" yourself after #2 using just dry toilet paper... and THEN use one of these wipes... and see if you'll EVER be satisfied using just dry toilet paper again. Fffuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

  • I carry baby wipes with me and keep a box on my bathroom sink. I haven't looked back since, but I do keep some "adult" TP on hand for company who refuses to use baby wipes. While I'm meticulous with my use of baby wipes, I try to limit my bathroom time to before I shower to make sure I'm thoroughly clean.

    But if I'm in public and I've run out of or forgotten my baby wipes and there's no inferior toilet paper I take advantage of my morbid obesity. The fat will actually protect the panties until I can get to another restroom to wipe.

  • This has never happened to me. The first thing I do when I enter into a public restroom is check if it's nasty, then go to another stall if it is, and second check to see that there is plenty of toilet paper. Makes sense to me...
