Today was a bad new day for toilets. First this morning I hear about the man from Ness City Kanas who was facing charges for allowing his girlfriend to sit on their toilet so long that her body became stuck to the seat. According to the article
Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple was among authorities who discovered the woman last month living in the bathroom of a mobile home she shared with her boyfriend, Kory McFarren.
"The house was cluttered but not in shambles," he said. "The smell was overpowering -- a terrible smell about the house, obviously coming from where she was at."
McFarren, 36, told police his girlfriend, Pam Babcock, 35, had a phobia about leaving the bathroom and may not have left the bathroom in two years, although he's unsure how long she was in there.
He said during that time, he brought her food, water, and clean clothes.
"The only thing I am guilty of is I didn't get her help sooner," he told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The sheriff said that judging by the woman's condition -- she had open sores on which the toilet seat would stick -- it appeared she likely sat on the toilet continually for at least a month.
And then there is the story of a 36-year-old woman was arrested this week on suspicion of trespassing after Boulder police said she locked herself in the bathroom of a local Wendy's restaurant with a dead dog stuffed in a duffel bag.
After Wendy Louise Washum, of Aurora, had been locked in the Wendy's restroom for 30 minutes Monday, restaurant employees started complaining of a foul odor, according to Boulder police.
Washum told restaurant employees that she "had something in her teeth from the Frosty she purchased and was trying to clean her teeth," an officer wrote in a police report. "Washum's teeth were primarily yellow, and she stated her teeth were white before she had the the Frosty."
When police officers arrived at the 1965 28th St. restaurant, they persuaded the woman to open the door and discovered she was carrying a large duffel bag with a dead dog inside, police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said.
"The woman began crying and said the dog had been dead for a week, but she believed it would come back to life in 13 (more) days," Huntley said in a statement.
