Today, while I was in the bathroom my mom walked in and tried to have a conversation with me about my bowel movements. I'm 23, and this is a regular thing. FML

Seriously? Dude, move out. You know it's time when you have no privacy. Maybe, she's trying to drive you out. Take a hint!


And that is just the conversation you want with your mother.

at his age the conversation should be when the F*** are you moving out one ward OP ~MOVE~

op says its a regular thing.. meaning bowel movements???

I don't know about OP's situation, but in my house, the bathroom door is easily unlocked with a small flat object like a fingernail or a coin. So even locking it won't prevent surprise visits from my mom, or anyone else in my family for that matter.

If he's living in his mothers house instead of his own, I'd say he'd much rather invest in a house.

If she's actually unlocking the door from the outside, I would consider running away. And never coming back.

Yeah, she only does it when she needs something out of the bathroom though. We store a lot of our hair products and such in my bathroom, since it has more storage space, so it makes it necessary for her to pop in every once in a while.

I couldn't handle that. It is locked for a reason. She should knock and wait for you to unlock it. If she needs something so desperately she can tell you.

Bathroom door locks are meant to be easily unlocked for the obvious reason that they are meant to keep people from walking in not to actually secure the room from people trying to force entry and in case of emergency not require a key, locksmith , or kicking in a door and hurting the person inside. Also I doubt OPs mom is popping the lock as that would definitely be mentioned.

"Now, honey, I know you missed yesterday's scheduled poo, so I'm going to buy some prune juice for you. We can't have you skipping. It's not healthy."

You should maybe talk to your mom and tell her that it's not okay with you. Hopefully she understands.

YDI for letting this become a regular thing.

Not sure why this is voted down. One or two times sucks, but OP shouldn't have let this become a regular thing. They need to let their mum know that this is not okay. Sure OP's living under her roof but there are limits, and OP's mum should have some basic decency and understanding of privacy. It's not outrageous to expect to go to the bathroom in peace.

I guess it's voted down for how hostile it comes across. I could have worded my comment better, but the main point stands. We don't know what OP's culture is, so suggesting he move out might not be within his cultural boundaries. Also, I said what I said because, regardless of culture, privacy is privacy. Going to the restroom is a private thing, and having your mom, dad, sister, etc. there isn't normal. Unless OP is a child and needs the help of his parent(s)?, but he is 23 lol

Is there a lock so you can lock the door? Because if so you might want to use it
