I think you got into a power-struggle with your roommate over guys flexing their muscles, so-to-speak and now they will probably really plug up the toilet, just to spite you.

Ew.
Well that's the thing; if it's an emergency than go ahead, but there are two things happening here.

1. It's every time they come over!

2. Most of them live on campus.

I never use the bathroom over anyone elses house. I just can't allow myself to.

I'm in college. You do the math.

I know I'm being harsh, but I can't stomach it. Having people use my bathroom that I don't know....yuck. Too many diseases out there to take the risk. I do clean the toilet, but I shouldn't have to clean up after his friends. He needs to bleach the toilet himself. This isn't a public bathroom.

My friends don't use my bathroom like his do and most of the time if I'm hanging with them. We're not at the house.

There's at least 2 threads in the Work/Employment forum griping about "pooping" at work.
It's nasty!

You wouldn't understand; I literally get queasy thinking about stuff like that. I guess since I don't do it; I expect other people not to do it at my house.

Find some appliques that look like puke or worse and stick them on the toilet seat! Maybe that will make them less willing to take a seat.

I kind of think this thread is silly, but at the same time, I wouldn't want a bunch of college-aged males using my bathroom for anything. Period.

This is what probably bothers me the most and from looking at them; they don't look too clean themselves.

I guess it is safe to assume that this is your first time living away from home? Good luck with the bathroom policy when you want to have visitors over at your home.

Been away from home for about over 3 years now.

Nope, I sure don't.

I meant I don't use other people's bathrooms for that.

I think this is rather harsh....if anything, your roommate needs to tell his friends to clean up after themselves or he needs to do the cleaning. If he can't convince them to clean up or he clean, then perhaps no visitors should be allowed the next 2 months since this is a temporary thing.

I generally like to wait till I am home to take care of my business but sometimes my body just won't let me wait. I rarely have visitors at my home but a few years ago, I had a party and someone had to take care of some serious business...I am just glad I had enough toilet tissue there. I figure, they are human and they just can't help it!

What do you do if you have to go really badly and could no longer hold it in, especially if something you ate at someone's home did not agree with you??

It would be nice to always have the luxury of only having to use the potty at home but that isn't reality.

Since you are in college, it is safe to assume that you are a young adult? When you get older, your body will begin to change and you may find it harder to continue holding it in. What are you going to do then? Stay at home and become a hermit? Also, it isn't healthy to continually hold in your bowel movements until you are at home. Just ask your doctor.
