There’s nothing worse than trying to clean yourself up after a particularly messy #2 and ending up with… well, a situation on your hands. I can’t say it happens to me with any regularity, but one man is so concerned about and desperate to avoid such a disaster that he has designated “poop gloves” to ensure his crap never comes in contact with his skin. The only issue is, his girlfriend is freaking out about it.
He’s had his poop gloves for years. The unnamed man, who made a throwaway account with the username “poopgloves” for his post on Reddit’s AITA sub, recently moved in with his girlfriend and while it’s been a great experience, he recently found himself having to explain a life-long habit he had of using yellow dishwashing gloves to shield his hands from his own crap.
He keeps them out of reach, to be fair. The guy insisted that he always keeps the gloves on the top shelf of the bathroom where his girlfriend can’t reach, but she still inquired about them after seeing them in there the other day. When he told her what the gloves were for, her response was… less than impressed.
He doesn’t just use them for when he’s going #2, apparently. “I’ve had them, and other pairs, for a lot of my life,” he wrote. “I put them on every time I go to the toilet.” Okay, that sounds weird, but it’s not exactly a big deal, right? Especially since he has a medical explanation for using them, sort of. He has dry hands and eczema so he finds washing his hands frequently to be irritating. “When I was younger they would crack and bleed after washing them, so my Mum bought me some gloves and told me to wear them when I wee/poo, and take them off before I leave. I called them my Poop Gloves and the name stuck.”
His girlfriend is not feeling it. “She was really horrified when I explained what they are,” he revealed. She’s said to be “disgusted” that her boyfriend doesn’t wash his hands and she told him that she doesn’t want the gloves in the house.
He’s not willing to budge, though. He’s had his “poop gloves” for years — his girlfriend is the new addition to the house. He believes he has a reason for using the gloves and that his girlfriend’s request is inappropriate. He insists that he at least “rinses” the gloves when he uses them even though he doesn’t use soap on the gloves every time, but he wants to know if he’s in the wrong for continuing to use them. What do you think?
It’s probably better than a poop knife. I doubt that gets washed any more than the gloves!
