NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: So everybody should just shiat first thing in the morning and then hop in the shower?


You could. There's also the standalone bidet, the Japanese-style washlet magic, the old standby lota/dipper/water bottle, or what is now getting to be the most common option (commonly used from Bangkok to Helsinki to Rio de Janeiro)... the bum gun:

What about "dropping the kids off at the pool"? Does that count as classy? I say dump and I'm 38.


I say ass vomit.

911Jenny: I don't know what's worse....this lady or the lady last season who used towel scraps for toilet paper and washed and reused them.

The worst part of that whole scene is watching her kid fold the washed poo towels and saying, "this one is kinda dirty should I throw it out?" And holds up a streaked cloth. She then tells him no bc it is still good.


Cloth diapers must drive you to the brink of insanity.

Pooping, taking a dump, taking a shiat, dropping a deuce, defecating, crapping, having a bowel movement, passing a stool...what is the preferred vernacular/term?

NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: markie_farkie: Washing instead of wiping is much more sanitary.

If she was using street drainage ditch runoff instead of city tap water, she might get a crazy label in my book.

Otherwise, nothing wrong with thinking how to undo what we've been brainwashed into doing, because some marketing guy's plan to sell something somehow became the norm.

So everybody should just shiat first thing in the morning and then hop in the shower?


Drag your ass across the grass like a real man.

AverageAmericanGuy: I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't think the problem is necessarily that she doesn't use toilet paper. There are plenty of cultures that wash after using the toilet, as crazy as that sounds to Americans.

Rather, I think the problem here is that she has no class, as evidenced not only by her actions but also by her use of language. "After I take a dump" is something I'd expect a punk teenager to say, not a grown woman. She is the lowest of the low and disgusting.

And to what end is she skimping to this degree? This seems self-imposed rather than a problem of income. At the end of the month, what is that 6 dollars she's saved going to do for her? Somehow she's gone off the rails and needs some serious help.


This.
This lady obviously has some boundary issues and isn't all there upstairs, not because she uses soap and water to clean herself after she uses the bathroom instead of toilet paper, but because she went on tv discussing her toilet habits and the words she used to describe it. The fact that she uses soap and water instead of toilet paper actually probably makes her cleaner down there than most other Americans.

Well, a detachable shower head does come in handy..
 
2012-10-02 08:29:18 AM
so, she still DOES LAUNDRY, just using a different method than the majority of us. she saves a whopping $6 doing this, she says

i agree about the washers and dryers shrinking the life of the clothes, but i have clothes that are several years old that i still wear regularly, without using some super-expensive fancy new front loaders or euro-style machines.

the wiping with soap and water is fine at home or somewhere like work if you can plan by carrying things with you, but not convenient in many situations.
 
2012-10-02 08:37:38 AM
That's ok, I use wipes to clean my ass and toilet paper to dry it. I may have to change the design plans on my house to include a bidet in my bathroom.

Dropping the Cosby kids off at the pool.
 
2012-10-02 08:42:30 AM
Good for her.

Water and soap is probably cleaner than toilet paper anyway.

Washing clothes in the shower is efficient and she doesn't look dirty at all.

More people should follow her example.
 
2012-10-02 08:56:04 AM
I got a bidet toilet attachment for 25 bucks on ebay. I absolutely love it. Haven't used TP at home for several years. Always thought TP was nasty and never feel really clean after using it.

Wiping your asss with paper instead of washing with water is disgusting when you think about it.


I try not to think about your arse, but thanks anyway.

On a side note. never go ATM.

loveblondieo: Mother-of-five Vickie from Ashton, Idaho, refuses to shell out cash for a telephone, a television or even new clothes for the children. And for meal time she scours the local area for road kill.

That other stuff bothers me, but this gets me the most. It's one thing to indulge in your own neurosis, but to inflict them on your children is a whole other thing. My God woman, we're in the second decade of the 21st century, get your kids some food to eat and some means of communication.


This one was the most appalling for me too - although I could see not buying new clothes for the kids if you prefer to scour the local Goodwill/Salvation Army store for a bargain (I've done that myself when times were lean.) But the 'no-phone-no-tv-and-roadkill-dinners' plan? I can guarantee you her five kids are spending lots of time at their friends' houses using their phones, watching their tvs and eating their food. So it's less of an 'extreme frugality' mindset and more of a 'let me pawn my kids off onto other people' mindset.
 
2012-10-02 09:04:53 AM
I'm all for washing up after 'number 2' - but if you can't manage to go before your morning shower, well, that's what bidets and flushable wipes are for. Or heck - wet some TP and use that.

Also, her clothes look dingy. IDK. It is worth $6/month to *look* like I am wearing clean clothes. I'm also sure that all her clothes are screen-printed t-shirts that she got for free.

One of my deal breakers for the men I date is cheapness. Being sensible with money? Rock on. Being a tightwad? Bye-bye.
 
2012-10-02 09:05:06 AM

Bhruic: Is that soap free? Because toilet paper is so relatively cheap that unless you are using free soap, you're probably coming out about even.


Maybe she makes her own?

nothing quite as satisfying as taking a dump on company time
 
2012-10-02 09:31:36 AM
Reusable toilet paper really isn't that big a deal, and there's quite a market for it. Just search etsy for "mama cloth" or "family cloth" and see what you get. Same goes for menstrual pads (although many, like myself, prefer a menstrual cup) and diapers. Why do we assume that enshrining our bodily wastes in plastic/chemical tombs for posterity is the more sanitary way to go?

//Yes, I use a washing machine
//No, diapers are washed separately, thank you

Dropping a log, logging out, taking a grumpy, firing No. 2 torpedo, taking a growler, horking out a dirt snake, laying some cable, crimping off a length, growing a tail, dropping the kids off at the pool, Code Brown, shaking hands with Mr. Brown, taking the Browns to the Super Bowl, seeing a man about a horse, giving birth to a Texan/Marine/Dem/Repub/ButtWiener...

She's kinda hot, esp. those legs. I'd bend them over her shoulders and wash her down that's for sure.

Personally I use a bidet when ever possible. Much cleaner than wiping with toilet paper. Bonus: No swamp ass!

Gortex: I'm one of the cheapest, most frugal people there is...but wow.

not-so-CSB:
The best household money-saving tip I've come across is to actually plan your week's meals in advance, and buy only what you plan on eating (including leftovers for lunch). It saves on impulse purchases and cuts down on stuff going bad in the fridge.


I do the exact same thing. Not so much to be frugal, it's just that I'm sick of fast food. The saved money is just icing on the cake I made at home myself :D

I used to work with a woman named Patty that used (office-supplied) tape to get stuff off her suit and would just keep adding cheap perfume. We counted 3 suits total over the year she worked there (she wore one of them everyday) and we firmly believe nary a one was ever cleaned professionally. Oh, and of course she smoked.
 
2012-10-02 10:25:08 AM
She claims that the hand-washing technique saves her a total of $6 a month.

Honey, if you can't afford six farking dollars a month for laundry, MOVE THE FARK OUTTA NEW YORK. You obviously can't farking afford to live here.

/I sometimes hand-wash stuff in the shower but that's like, A SWEATSHIRT. Not MY ENTIRE WARDROBE.

So we're recycling the tampons, are we? Or is it stuff-folded baby socks? I guess they would last longer through the washings...


Reuasable alternative to tampons seriously, don't click if you don't want to know.

I noticed that one too--because I know where that town is. It's VERY small, and 80 miles away from any sizable town. The area is known for potatoes. You know, "famous potatoes." These kids are completely isolated. I'll even wager that this woman is a Mormon, (most of the town is) so you can add that lunacy to the mix too.
