Portajohn follies (Read 1008 times)


I've got a fever...

    In the little sink???

     

    It was not a sink.  Exclusively a urinal.  Well, exclusively until that asshat blew mud into it.

    On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        Every time I step into one, I worry that it'll fall over.

        More cowbell!

          Flying Pig this past year.  The race organizers tried to a strategy where they placed the port-a-johns inside of the corrals.  Well, 4 port-a-johns per corral does not do the trick, and those were the only ones available.  So the starting cannon goes off, and I was still in line...in the middle of the corral.  I ducked behind the side of the port-a-pots like I was sheltering myself from a windstorm (other poor saps just chanced becoming roadkill).  Since there's no way I was going to drop deuce while on the clock, I wound up waiting over 10 minutes to finally get in and do a power squat, and started off with the 5:15 pace group when I was wanting to stay ahead of the 4:00 group.  So if you were at the Pig and there was some jackwagon moving through the field like that dude during rush hour....my apologies.  That certainly contributed to what became the toughest marathon I ever ran.

          STILL HAVING FUN!!!

              I race in SparkleSkirts

                Not at a race, but in the parking lot of a football game I went into one were someone had projectile vomited all over the inside of it. Like ALL OVER. Walls, seat, floor, everything. I should have known that in a parking lot full of tailgating football fans, a portapotty without a line was too good to be true.

                PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)

                 

                I started a blog about running :) Check it out if you care to

                  I have opened the door, more than once, to find splatters of shit all over the floor and up and onto the seat. Someone waited a teensy bit too long, no?My story is I went into one only to find it infested with cicadas. Okay, there was 2 in there, but STILL! I ran out screaming like a girl and drove to a Walgreens to go pee.

                   

                  I find it amusing how I no longer regard port-a-johns with disdain. When I see one now I look at it as a shining beacon of hope off in the distance.

                  I don't half-ass anything

                    It was you, wasn't it? Port-a-john at a trailhead in our area (where I destroyed my damned wrist 3 weeks ago tomorrow) has a veritable political debate in Sharpie goin' on. Next time I'm there I should take pics.

                        Imminent Catastrophe

                          Well, it happened again. Went into one of three and someone has SOMEHOW missed the big hole, even missed the flip-down seat (thank you) and left it about 15 inches to the left of bullseye. Even if you squat on the lid, Asian-style, you'd have to be a gymnast to hit that mark. I just don't get it.

                            Those were three of the most disgusting port-a potties i've seen.

                            Nearly each time that I went in I had to clean it up before getting any where near the hole.

                            How adults can make that big a mess is beyond me.

                              Wow ... I am SO glad I missed out on all this fun [or was too oblivious to notice - but NOT, I might add, so oblivious as to miss the hole].

                              Still, I thought 3 was probably not enough. And, the race info did say they would be located in two places on the course [although, reading the description and now knowing the set-up, those two places seem to be the same place].

                                Buzzy- I think that you're right.  Even though there was never a line three wasn't enough.

                                     I admit that I was cussing out the men most of the time when I went in.  However, there was

                                     one time I followed directly after a woman and it wasn't pretty.
