Going #1 is a fact of life. We all do it regularly, on a daily basis... well we should be... if you're not, please call a urologist. When going #1 we can find ourselves in more "free" situations. Yes, it would be ideal to pee only and always in a toilet but, there are other non-harmless places. It's all a matter of perspective.

Redditor u/gracegilligan wanted to know who is willing to admit their shower activities by asking.... What's your stance on peeing in the shower?


Stand Up!

Feet about 1 and a half feet apart. Facing water. Standing up straight. That's my stance. Ididntdoit_maybe

Time. 

Saves water. Vesurel

Saves time too, and also prevents any risk of falling when going from the shower to the potty, also you have more time in the shower which is more time to contemplate life and hate yourself. poopellar

Yes, I'm evil. 

A related story.

I used to be a backpacker tour guide. It was a ten day trip with people from all over the world who would (usually) become fast friends. On day 5 of the trip, when everyone was getting to know each other and feel good about everything I would have everyone play the drinking game "I have never."

I would wait until everyone was nicely drunk and then drop the bomb. "I have never peed in the shower". Then I would sit back and watch as half the people drank and the other half slowly realized that the other half had been peeing in their shared showers for the last five days.

It was always amazing to watch. It never failed to cause a scene. Some people really freaked out. I'd just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.

Wet....

In my opinion if you do it while the water is running no problem. Reddit

Anyone who is peeing in a shower without the water running must be killed. nonenone88

Necessity....

Grew up in a house with five people and one toilet. If you had to go and someone was on the pot, well, shower it was. WickAndWax

LOST HER MIND!!!

...you mean, people don't pee in the shower? RN-1783

My wife found out I pee in the shower, and she LOST HER MIND!

She's such a germophobe that it absolutely freaked her out.

Since that day, I have never peed in the shower again. At least, that's what I told her.... therealtrashy

If you live with people, you have to do it, because they already did and you need to reestablish your territory, otherwise you're standing in someone else's. ProstituteEggz

Part of the Package.... 

Spouses who are this grossed out by each others' bodies is such a weird concept to me. I've only been married a little over 6 months but I did so with the implicit understanding that body fluids would likely be involved as the years pass, in whatever way they may. It's all fun and games until someone can't wipe themselves.

Also, why does it seem like germophobes always know the least about germs? If you're married to someone you're probably safer drinking their urine than the water coming out of the shower head, depending on how often you clean your shower head.

It's not like he's dropping deuces in there, which is gross but even then, fecal implants with housemates are preferred for a reason. You'd probably do a better job protecting yourself snatching his phone out of his hands and disinfecting that once a day. graceodymium

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
