A man has called his girlfriend out for being ‘unreasonable’ after she discovered the ‘poop gloves’ he uses in the bathroom.
The couple have been together for a year but recently took the big step of living together, moving into a flat just over a week ago.
The boyfriend describes his partner as ‘amazing’, adding they are very happy with the move and the pair are ‘learning a lot about each other’ now they share a home.
He wrote: “Anyway, today she came out of the bathroom and said ‘Hey, what’s with the marigolds in the bathroom? They’re always there, are they yours?’
“So without thinking I said ‘Yeah, don’t touch them, they’re my poop gloves’.
“She said “Your f***ing what?”
Sensing his girlfriend’s horror and attempting to explain the find, the man says he keeps a pair of yellow cleaning gloves on the highest shelf in the bathroom, where ‘she can’t even reach’.
He puts them on every time he goes to the toilet and has used them, and other pairs, for ‘a lot of my life’.
“My hands get really dry and I have eczema, so it’s not good for me to be washing them all the time,” he said on Reddit .
“When I was younger they would crack and bleed after washing them, so my mum bought me some gloves and told me to wear them when I wee/poo, and take them off before I leave.
“I called them my Poop Gloves and the name stuck.
“Sophie is disgusted that I don’t wash my hands. She doesn’t want them in the house, but it’s something I’ve always done and I really can’t be a***d with getting eczema again. I think she’s being unreasonable.”
After much confusion, he was quick to add an edit to explain he doesn’t use the gloves to directly wipe, but simply wears gloves to hold the toilet paper instead of washing his hands.
Opening up the debate for feedback, some had no time for his poop gloves.
“Don’t be surprised when extremely abnormal behavior isn’t readily accepted,” said one.
Another wrote: “This is disgusting. Your poop gloves are transferring fecal matter to other parts of your bathroom. And even if you wear gloves you need to still wash your hands.”
Others defended him, as one argued: “Seems to me she is making a bigger deal of this than what it is. Perfect example of why it’s better to live with someone before you get married.
“Could you compromise with disposable gloves?”
Is it weird for the man to wear ‘poop gloves’?
