Things that make you go "EEEWWW" - page 10

Stevielynn's thread about the nursing home with the signs on the food carts brings up (oops, no pun intended:D ) something that happened at work yesterday that turned even MY cast-iron stomach. I was... Read More

    I grew up keeping paper plates in every room. Reason: the quickest thing you could slide under the cat's head before the puke hit the carpet, after the "warning meows" started.

    Let's not forget the "morning hairball" that you managed to squish between your toes first thing in the morning...

    Or the one you rolled over into in the middle of the night........

    Did you know there's actually a website devoted to cat barf? That's right: it's catpuke.com! Hilarious reading for those of us who are owned by cats, probably not so much for folks who aren't, or who have weak stomachs. Check it out, if you dare!

    I've never had the experience of rolling into one (yet, i have my cat here at my place now, just a matter of time before he leaves a food-filled hairball on the floor).

    Sheesh there really IS a website for everything!!! LOL

    Ok now I'm singing Barbra Streisand's "Memmm-ries..."

    I was involved with a man who raised Golden Retrievers, and the mum got pregnant. Well, mum had her puppies one day under the dining room table. Fine, I could handle that. But when Big Daddy moved them all into the bedroom, it got just a bit sticky you might say.

    He had built a very tall pedestal type waterbed, and with me being 4'11 I had to first swim to the edge of the bed, then "launch" myself off the frame of the bed to get out.

    Chances were 100% my first vault would land me into a pile of doo (on wall to wall shag). 50/50 as to whether it was warm or cold.

    Walking BACK to the bed was even more hazardous because by then I had washed said squishy from between my toes, and didn't really want to hop (literally) back into bed with newly acquired, um, accumulations.

    Pretty soon everything in the room got indoctrinated with what was, by the time I discovered it, DRIED puppy "chow". Including my nurse white shoes.

    Mm, HMMM! LOVELY!

    Course it was winter and too cold to put them out in a kennel, and of course it wasn't big Daddy's side of the bed that they prefered, sooooo... I had to learn to put my nurse whites above floor level and brace myself for another episode of "As the stomach heaves" when I wanted to go to the loo.

    I learned to squish my bladder EXTRA hard before going to bed, and then if I woke up in the night, to "hold it" until daylight!

    (Shrug), they say love is blind. I say, love is squishy.

    ROFLMAO!!!!!

    I personally find ALL animal emissions worse than humans', although I think I'd have to make an exception where my sons' intestinal air explosions are concerned.......those two can peel the paint off the walls! More than once I've wondered just what the hell is fermenting in their internal organs, and the fact that they take the usual juvenile pleasure in perfuming the air in our home makes for some rather spirited discussions ("Haven't I taught you better manners than that? For gawd's sake, if you gotta do that, go OUTSIDE!!").

    Still, in most instances I think animals in general smell worse than we do, so it makes sense that their excretory functions would be more offensive. I can deal with patients puking on my head (THAT'S happened a couple of times) any day of the week, but when one of the cats starts yacking, I'm heading for the exit along with the kids. They're even worse than I am: once they left their dad a message on the refrigerator bulletin board that read, "One of the cats threw up in the family room. We didn't clean it up because we didn't see it."

    Another entry in the gross-out contest: As I write this, my husband has just pulled a wad of hair out of the kids' bathtub drain that you could make a wig with. The drain hasn't been doing its job for quite some time, which tends to result in the tub filling up while my daughters take their interminable showers, which in turn causes water to drip through the floor into the downstairs living room (it's a real hoot watching the cats hit that puddle at full speed and seeing them go slip-sliding away). So Bill went in there about half an hour ago on a search-and-destroy mission for the source of the problem.........and came up with what looks like a rather grisly Halloween decoration. YUCK. I hate used hair almost as much as I hate anything to do with teeth, and my DH just *had* to show it to me. BRRRRRRRR.

    ohh my gosh . . . the stopper in my bathroom sink has a 3 inch long brass stopper . . . pulled it up earlier and was covered with SAME AS ABOVE. I need gloves . . . quick.

    My DH didn't even USE gloves. Makes my toes curl just thinking about it!!

    What, are we all shedding big time these days? My own hair has been coming out by the handfuls, and both daughters are complaining that they're losing lots of theirs, too (DH just saw what I wrote here, and said "No SH**!!). I thought we were supposed to all grow nice furry "coats" for the winter. Oh, wait a minute, maybe that's bears......

    We had a guy come in to our LTC--smelled soooo bad-even after a bath--one of those that you need 3 or 4 baths before they smell decent. He had MOLDY underwear. Exactly how long does it take for your underwear to actually grow FUNGUS????? Also had an old grease rag shoved up you-know-where. Oh my. All of his clothes went into the trash-needless to say.
