I keep a box of matches in a little ceramic dish in my lavatory. So that people can eliminate unpleasant odours by lighting a match.
Unfortunately my teenage son keeps forgetting to use them. The other day I had to use the lavatory only minutes after he’d been there. And it was a most offensive experience. I’ve even put a PLEASE LIGHT A MATCH sign on the wall above the cistern, but nothing seems to get through. What can I do?
The Smell That Lingers
You sound like the kind of exhausting, stressed-out person who lives their life in CAPS LOCK. But I do love an embarrassing poo question.
The fact that you’ve used words like “lavatory”, “unpleasant odours” and “offensive” indicates a couple of things to me. Firstly, that you’re a bit uptight. Secondly, that you’re easily embarrassed by the body’s natural functions. And thirdly, that your own poo probably stinks worse than anyone else’s. Awkward.
Hope this helps.
With kind regards,
