Only In America

Published by at 1:07 pm under Blog

Once again, the Americans have proven their uncanny ability to be the stupidest, oddest, most not-of-our-world crazies on the face of this earth.

In Kansas, a woman went to the toilet two years ago and decided not to leave. Sheriff Whipple was among authorities who discovered the woman last month living in the bathroom of a mobile home she shared with her boyfriend. Yes! She had a boyfriend.

It seems she had a phobia of leaving the bathroom. It began with her spending a few hours there. Then progressed to a few days. The latest was two years. Her arse cheeks had welded themselves to the toilet seat – the skin had grown around it. I know there are a number of quirky kinks to the whole OCD thing, and I guess this is another one of those kinks, but how the hell could her boyfriend let two years go by before finally deciding he should call someone about it??? Here’s what he had to say:

It was her choice. She is an adult, she made her own decision. It was my fault I should have gotten help for her sooner — I admit that. But after a while, you kind of get used to it.

Toilet Usage Instruction
You kind of get used to it??? I’m not sure I’d get used to bringing her lunch and dinner to the bathroom each day. I doubt I could get used to having a conversation with a bathroom door. And I’m definite that I will not be sparing a moments thought to their sex life. Eugh!

The serious side of it is that these two are clearly mentally imbalanced in some way and hopefully they’ll both receive the care they need. But….come on….two years?

    I am a ‘Biomommy” in South Africa , I assume you went to a De La Salle, me too but to a sister school, which is why your blog got my attention. I am so glad your birth mom and you got together. I am not sure if people generally realise how awful life is for a birth mom post adoption especially those around the 70’s and 80’s when there was so much stigma attached. In SA you can contact our government home affairs and they contact the adoptive parents to see if they are prepared to let your child know you are trying to make contact but they can say NO even if the ‘child’ is over 21!!! Scary stuff but understandable I suppose if they don’t know they are adopted. I made contact with my duaghter 2 years ago she was 25 then and she has 2 full blood sisters and a full blood brother, full family unit all together since 2 years after her birth I think a bit scary for her she seems to be keeping her distance, protecting parents and adoptive brother. How do you think you would be in that scenario?
