Germaphobes are the ones who get every illness anyway because they never give their immune system much exposure to anything.... it's a funny irony when I think about it. Maybe a bit of therapy for OCD wouldn't be amiss (indeed before it graduates from being Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to Obsessive Controlling Disorder).

What do you think strangers do in your bathroom that is any different from what friends and family do?
or
It's better to pick up germs from people you know? Unless you happen to know anybody that's germ free?

Because I know them and know if they're clean or not.

Maybe the OP could buy a port-o-potty and put it in his room for his exclusive use.

[put a lock on it, though...]

Well, this turned out to be a ****ty thread.

It sounds to me like there's a couple of phobias at work here that are on the edge of getting out of control.

1 how do you know they are doing #2's ??
2 did it ever occur to you that they might be doing it more because they know it upsets you.... just a thought.

...........or the roomate wants the OP out so he has his buddies load up on pintos & exlax before coming over. Looks like it may do the trick

You are angry/upset because people are using a toilet for its intended purpose? A toilet doesn't exist to look pretty; it has a function!

And why do friends/family have poop that is magically cleaner than stranger poop?

So you had no idea that these guests were pooping in your bathroom until your boyfriend told you???? I'd be inclined to think that you may have been making comments about his guests to him and he said that to get a rise out of you.
