Campsite Toilet Etiquette

Post by CC on Mon May 21, 2012 6:32 pm

After our recent travels I've been really disgusted by the morning ritual of visiting the campsite toilet block, it's bad enough having to endure the "Pongs" but when I have to listen to the strains and sighs proudly coming from the other cubicles... as well as other unpleasant noises twiddle_thumbs But if that ain't bad enough I then have to listen to disgusting individuals who relentlessly have to snort and clear their throats without any thought to anyone else using these shared facilities! It's truly disgusting and when I hear this behavior now I tend to mutter "dirty censored! !"

How do others deal with this? The last site (Brynich Caravan Club site) was so bad in the above respects that I refused to use the site facilities and instead used our onboard toilet which was a far more civilised affair hugegrins

is it just me who feels this way? maybe I just need to toughen up scratch head

I can't say I've witnessed any of that behaviour lately but then again I tend to use our own facilities first thing, using the site block throughout the rest of the day.
My pet hate is the morning parade in dressing-gowns (and sometimes just a nightie) covermyeyes walking from their caravans/MH's to the toilet block. I presume they don't walk down their own street in their dressing-gowns.

I wouldn't be so sure I often see people outside in their pjs/nighties often taking children to school.
Funnily enough we were talking about this at work today that how it is so common now.

Hi CC/Paul
Ditto with Paul, don't tend to go near the w/c's till later, when the cleaners have been and gone. hoover some sites have speakers in the w/c's playing music to cover the animal sounds.

Very good Andy hugegrins

With regards the mentioned obligatory nightwear I saw a lady yesterday morning doing a complete round of the Brynich site dressed in her PJ's and her slippers and having her morning fix of ciggys on route... nice hugegrins

The worst thing for me (as mentioned in my original post) is the snorting that takes place, we stayed at a few different sites on our last trip and not a single day passed where I didn't encounter this disgusting behavior, it's almost as if it's acceptable because we are men shrugg I wonder if the conveniences were mixed sex whether these individuals would still behave so disgustingly?

Think I will take the advice of Paul and Boaby and stay clear of the site facilities until later in the day in future.... seems like good advice smile!

WOW!!

I never realised I was sharing a Forum with such delicate souls!

If a person can't fart in a toilet nowadays I must have missed some new law that they brought in when I wasn't looking.

As for the other noises; I personally hate Karaoke singers but, come on fellas, there are more important things to worry about than somebody gargling in the next cubicle.

Don't know about that Dutto... think when using the toilets at home it's OK to fart away to your hearts content, or even snort and cough up your repulsive flem... but when I'm in the cubicle next door or trying to take a morning wash and shave scratch head

Yes, I might be a delicate soul, but I do at least have some decorum gimmefive

This one goes out especially to Dutto.... Enjoy winkin! winkin!

A Fart

A fart can be quiet,
A fart can be loud,
Some leave a powerful,
Poisonous cloud.

A fart can be short,
Or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known,
To sound just like a song.

Some farts do not smell,
While others are vile,
A fart may pass quickly,
Or linger awhile.

A fart can create
A most-curious medley,
A fart can be harmless,
Or silent, but deadly.

A fart can occur
In a number of places,
And leave everyone
With strange looks on their faces.

From wide-open prairies,
To small elevators,
A fart will find all of us
Sooner or later.

So be not afraid
Of the invisible gas,
For always remember,
That farts, too, shall pass.


Off to bed now quick_run

Hi All,

What an interesting set of posts, I enjoyed the 'fart' poem too! snigger

We are off to Sandwich in Kent for the next 3 days in the MH, I shall now be more aware of the animal noises, thanks for that!

I see your point about folks wandering about in their PJs, a morning trip to our local Tescos will bear that out. How come they don't freeze to death? The aircon in there could worry brass monkeys! cold

Away!!!

Peas, Peas are good for the heart
The more you eat - the more you fart

So lets have peas for every meal!

Cannot say I am worried about farting and smells in the toilet block but I am disgusted by the number of times you can go to use the toilet and find the previous user has not bothered to flush the toilet properly.We were away at a CC site last week and 5 of the 6 toilets had not be flushed.I used to grumble and blame youngsters - not a person under 50 (not suggesting over 50 is old lol4 )on the site!

Always nice to find hairs from a certain body area, skid marks in the pan, and pee on the seat... oh the joys of camping! rolleyes Seriously the wardens at the C&C / CC sites do an excellent job of trying to keep the facilities clean, usually I find they are pretty good and sometimes even immaculate... It's the animals that use them that's the problem! As for smells as unpleasant as it is I'm fairly forgiving of that, farting.. well OK we all fart.. but clearing their throats by snorting is just disgusting and I'm tired of hearing it on every site we seem to visit!



And on a lighter note....


There was a young man from Sparta
Who was the most incredible farter
On the strength of one bean
He could fart 'God Save the Queen'
and Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata'




Guess as a member of staff I should really know better quick_run

Hi CC

I completely agree with you about the CC and C&CC wardens doing an excellent job with regard to the toilet blocks - its just the dirty sensored1 who use the facilities.
Apart from your experiences in the toilet block was the Brynich site O.K.?
We are thinking of popping up that way in the near future.
Are there any walks from the site?

Hi There Groper... the Brynich looked fantastic when we pulled in and we thought this will be nice, but it was downhill from thereon I'm sorry to say... the pitches are extremely close together so no privacy, our electric hook up had to go on to a neighbouring pitch and they had one of those round washing line things up right next to the point, caravans were back to back with around 2ft between them which I was surprised to see as I thought they had to be a minimum distance apart for fire regs? It's a very busy site as well with a noisey childrens play area which didn't bother us but could some people.. the toilet facilities are very outdated although adequate and clean, good shop on site with a good range of camping products but high prices, nice walks around the site especially if you have a dog and a nearby pub a short walk from the site. The surrounding views of the hills are nice but the nearby road is quite noisy, but as we only stayed for one night to break our journey up on the way home it served the purpose, wouldn't return I don't think unless it was for the same reason.

We wild camp wherever possible.
Isn't that the reason we have toilets and showers in our vans? If I fart I only have to apologise to my long suffering wife and the dog, who doesn't give a damn anyway.
So if you don't like the 'noises' from the communal loo's use your own. and keep out of harms way.

MrsCC tells me off Platypuss... something along the lines of
"You're not using the on board toilet when there's one on the site!" gettinwrong
It gets used during the night (and when shes not around snigger )
or when I put my foot down and refuse to use the site facility's like at Brynich quick_run

Hi there,

Just a couple of comments with regard to the cleanliness of toilets.

In January at Camping Marjal Costa Blanca we had a bit of an epidemic with the Winter Vomiting Virus. (A quaintly named virus in view of the fact that suffers generally don't know which end to point down the toilet!!)

A number of our fellow campers (but luckily not ourselves) didn't even make it to the porcelain before they "had to go"! They had our sympathies rather than any condemnation; and our admiration knows no bounds for the young ladies who did an incredible job at keeping the toilets serviceable, never mind clean!

So, the next time you see what looks like a deliberate attempt to spoil your day please remember that the person who did it may have had no choice in the matter and "ditto" for the person who has to clean it up!

Oh, and before anyone says anything stupid like "The perpetrator should have cleaned it up!" let me reassure them that should you ever contract Winter Vomiting Virus you will realise that all that you are worrying about is how long it will be before it hits you again. The symptoms last about three days and fifteen "incidents" from each end within any 24 hours is by no means a record!!

Best regards,

drinksallround
