A mum’s bid to find the innocent victim of her two year-old daughter’s ‘rolling poo’ has gone viral.
Mortified Louise Issac, 25, dashed into a public loo to clean up her youngster – and was horrified when a little poo rolled into the cubicle next door.
She reached underneath to retrieve it but said she now wanted to find the woman who was inside at the time to apologise.
Her humorous horror story of potty training going wrong has captured the public imagination and gone viral on social media.
Louise wrote on Facebook: “If you were in a toilet cubicle in the Plymouth City Market about 2pm today, minding your own business and suddenly a whole poo rolled under your door and then a frantic hand followed trying to find it and roll it back, I do apologise.
“Potty training a two-year-old and it’s not going well.”
Louise, from Plymouth, Devon, said she never expected her post to go viral but despite over 20,000 views has still not been able to track down the unfortunate occupier.
She added: “We were walking through town and as we got to the bottom of Royal Parade she said ‘I have pooed’.
“I thought ‘oh no’ because I had left the changing bag in the car.
“I went to the nearest toilets which was the market. I couldn’t find any baby changing so we just went in to a cubicle, the three of us, which was a squeeze.
“As I pulled down her jeans, I was trying to pull the pull-up down really carefully, and I didn’t realise how much she had pooed.
“As I was pulling it down the poo just fell out, and because her back was to the adjoining cubicle that is how it rolled under. It just went on the floor.
“I was like ‘oh no!’ and I was grabbing for it and I said ‘sorry!’ to the person next door.”
“It can’t be nice having a poo coming into your cubicle.”
Louise posted the story on her own Facebook but said many people found it funny and suggested sending it to popular account called The Unmumsy Mum.
She added: “I posted it on her wall and overnight it gained a massive amount of likes and shares. From there The Unmumsy Mum shared it and it just went nuts.
“Thousands of people were liking it and sharing their potty training horror stories in the comments.
“It was really funny to read the comments and there were definitely worse stories than ours.”
Her post received several comments on social media with some describing it as the funniest thing they had ever heard.
Angela Best wrote on facebook: “I reckon that will be the funniest thing I hear all week,”
Kirsty Harder added: “This is cracking me up.”
