These parents went out to buy a washing line and what they experienced left them with a red face. Their son Jacob, 4 decided to relieve himself in the middle of the shop at a display toilet and the poor parents had to scoop the poop out from the bowl.
Parents Left Mortified After Boy, 4 Poops In B&Q Display Toilet
Caroline Akhtar was at B&Q in Glastonbury on Saturday morning (11 June) with her partner, Azzy, and their four-year-old son, Jacob, and daughters Frankie, three, and Eliza, one.
However, the family had little to no idea that soon their story would be going viral on social media and that they will be facing secondhand embarrassment, all thanks to their son Jacob.
Apparently, the young boy was out with his family when he decided to take a huge poo in a B&Q display toilet – with the parents forced to fish it out afterward.
According to the family, they went out to buy a washing line but had no idea that they will get much more than they bargained for.
While his parents’ backs were turned, Jacob explored a nearby display toilet.
He needed to poop and what could be a better place than using a toilet bowl. So the child decided to simply take a seat on it and relieved himself with a 'very big poo.'
Taking to Facebook to share the story, where it has since gone viral with over 15,000 likes, Caroline wrote: “Can’t quite believe what’s happened.
“J has taken a very big poo in one of the B&Q display toilets.
“Only went in for a washing line, turned around and J is sat on one of the toilets. Ran to say get off but it was very much too late.
“I left to get wet wipes and came back to him still sat on there because he ‘needed to finish’ and hubby didn’t know what else to do.
“The young shop assistant couldn’t stop laughing but also completely ignored the situation, don’t blame the lad.”
The parents were “mortified” at first but then saw the funny side of the situation – although they were less pleased when they had to fish out the poo from the toilet.
“At first we were mortified but then we found it funnier and funnier,” Caroline told NeedToKnow.online.
“I quick paced back to the car park to get wet wipes and nappy bags and couldn’t stop laughing then.
“He was still on the toilet so I proceeded to help wipe his bum still and explain about the toilets in shops are not actual toilets.
“He said his sister, Frankie, said he could use it. Eliza was oblivious to it all and happy just playing on the toilets.”
Facebook users love the funny story, with the post having been shared 25,000 times on the the site.
“Mate I’d have walked out! Sack that!,” wrote one user.
“This is legendary,” added someone else.
“Well at least he’s potty trained,” wrote a third user, adding laughing emojis.
“That is the best thing I’ve ever seen,” commented another person.
“I have never laughed so much in my life,” added a fifth user, using laughing emojis to illustrate their laughter.
“OMG, what a story this will make for when he’s older,” commented someone else.
“Priceless,” wrote another person, while someone else added “I laughed out loud A LOT”.
Others, who appeared to be parents, mentioned they could see their own children doing this.
And it appears Jacob isn’t the only one mistaking display toilets for the real deal.
“We had that happen in Travis Perkins once, then the young lady wiped her bum with her teddy bear,” one user shared of their own experience.
