It is not at all uncommon to feel uncomfortable using a public washroom. If I can avoid pooping in a place, where I have to sit for a while and have no idea who sat there before me.. not to mention the inconvenience of stinking up the place or even worse, making noises while there are other people around..

Really? If he does have a phobia of public bathroom usage then for him it was an emergency. I would never go #2 in public, gross. Also, him getting a high position in a company has nothing to do with this.

my husband is the same way. He cannot use a public bathroom except to pee, and when he goes at home he has to take everything off including his wedding ring, and even has to move the bath mat. He can't have anything touching him at all.

I can understand the anxiety and apprehension of using a public toilet at the best of times, but wow 60, that's a whole new level of weird to me. I can't recall ever hearing about anything like that.

Yes it was a unisex bathroom, the only one of two stalls in that small office block. Nope, not a I'm not gay but man or woman, it's embarrassing having someone run into the stall you had no choice but to take a dump in.

Yeah, I often don't care for using public bathrooms, because someone might've peed on the seat or the place smells like someone died...or worse. I once accidentally broke a toilet by putting the seat down too quickly - parts of the bowl broke off into the toilet. (I didn't even know that was possible!)

I'd still consider you a good employee for doing that. Not many people would give up two extra hours for their boss. Honestly I hate doing #2 anywhere but at home too so I feel his pain.

Phobias are irrational and people who don't have one don't understand the intense anxiety they feel. Try not to judge your boss too hard, OP! It was really nice of you to work extra hours.

There has to be a name for that phobia. A lot of people are deathly afraid of public washrooms. Me, I prefer them. Why stink up my own house when I can inflict that torture on unsuspecting strangers?
