That poor, poor girl! I honestly can't say I'd have done the same.
An 18-year-old Sunderland lass who got her head stuck down a music festival toilet while attempting to retrieve her cash and iPhone from the malodorous pit has become a Facebook celeb, the Sun reports. Charlotte Taylor, dubbed "Poo Girl" following the "grim ordeal" at last weekend's Leeds Festival, dropped her handbag into the …
That poor, poor girl! I honestly can't say I'd have done the same.
.... but shit happens!
What sort of eejit actually sticks their head down a long drop festival dunny? It would have to be something a lot more valuable than an iPhone to make a normal person consider it.
"you have to laugh at these things" - she's right, the alternative is feeling bad about it for the rest of your life. She's got an instant claim to fame, and she'll be a stronger person because of it. Hold your head up (sorry for the metaphor, butt (sic) it is Friday...) and life goes on.
Anyway, it could have been worse - she could have fallen in...
..that's horrible. Those trough toilets are truly disgusting - the only thing that makes them slightly bearable is the fact you have open air above you. You can hear the aims and misaims of those in the adjoining stalls and frankly the only thing I would lean in to rescue from the bottom of one of those things would be a child.
She should keep up with the times, such technological advances as a long pole or as provided by mother nature a long stick might have averted sticking your hands down a bog filled with crap, piss and tampons (and maybe a bit of sick thrown in for good measure).
... is worthless without the Playmobil reconstruction
...a blonde before?
...so this is another 'iPhone' story just because the girl's precious handbag happened to contain that particular model of phone - as if she wouldn't have bothered trying to retreive her cash, cards, tickets, phone, keys etc if she'd been the owner of a lowly Nokia? FFS.
Either she was really quite small. Or that was on big hole. But how did she get her shoulders in the damn thing!
Ewan McGregor didn't have such problems in trainspotting.
"Anyway, it could have been worse - she could have fallen in..."
Makes me think of the scene in slumdog millionaire. ewww
Yey, they were in the Brown campsite that where I was.
If she had stopped for a second, she would have realised that they were the 'eco' toilets where there was no flusher as they were taken away to become compost.
They were nothing more than weelie bins with steps and a hole above them. There were always at least 3 crazy hippies wondering about who could have pulled the weelie bin out for her. Silly girl.
the "long drop" festival bogs were boxes with planks of wood with a hole in the middle placed over a ditch. Now that would have been funny....
I wouldn't put my face anywhere near the seat of a festival toilet let alone *through* it. Crazy girl!
"Poo-faced" was the only way to describe it.
Also, went to Enterprise Security to whine about the lack of IT content here, and they didn't get my point. Thanks for nothing, Suggestor.
More importantly; did it cause the iPhone to explode???
I wouldn't even put my arse near a festival shitter, never mind my head. It's bushes for me every time.
Mind you, I'd rather stick my head down a dunny than own an iPhone...
..she got a sh*t reception.
Mine's the one with the labrador puppy on the back.
Not once whilst I was stood there laughing at this girl did I think 'I bet this story makes in onto El Reg' ....
I wouldn't retrieve the crown jewels from some hippie-cesspit, let alone a poxy iPhone..
BTW: Did the iPohone have iFart installed?
Forget all this rubbish, where is the BOFH!!!! how many weeks/months has it been???
Don't make me go FoTW on you!!
....I'd had something like an iPhone (hint: not an Apple fan) and been able to go to a festival with 400 quid when I was 19.
But that was a bloody long time ago!
Now, where's the sad old git icon....?
She *is* from Sunderland
...and I wouldnt have rescued my own mother from that festering ammonia and shit reeking trench.
Everytime her Boyfriend goes to kiss Her, he'll remember where her face has been!
Stupid. But cute.
There's an app for that...
She a very lucky woman!
That phone could have exploded at any moment!
And then the $hit really would have hit the fan(s)!
Did her friends take it in terns to phone her?
I like the fact that the festival organisers said she'd been "deontaminated" afterwards. Does that mean they cured her of her iPhone dependency?
I think though that she was probably shit faced before she stuck her head down the bog. After all you'd have to be pretty out of it to drop your handbag down the bogs and even more ratted to even consider trying to climb into a latrine.
Or maybe it was a cry for help. The line up this year would have made many want to top themselves.
She was not in Brown (that would have made the story better though!) she was in yellow bubble and this happened in the yellow campsite bogs. Everyone thought it was another rumour going round until we saw the crowd and the graffiti started going up
Happy days if she goes next year she won’t have to buy a drink all weekend!
"...frankly the only thing I would lean in to rescue from the bottom of one of those things would be a child."
Someone either dropped or placed a remarkably real looking doll in one of the Reading loos - the occasional screams of people seeing it were rendered hilarious at the moment they realised it wasn't real. Sometimes there were audible hints that they'd tried to get it out......
I sincerely hope it was put there deliberately, in which case whoever put it there is a comedy genius.
People.... I want to know the most important thing......
Did she get her iphone or was it all for naught.. ?
she's not even fit in the slightest.
He would be happy to get it back for her.
Its an Iphone so it was trying to return to its natural ship* state.....
Could also have been honing in to the nearest recycling centre to save the poor girl the humiliation of being a sheep following the Ipoo crowd??
*requires letter replacement as you can imagine..
"She went to get changed and she stayed for the rest of the festival - but she said she felt paranoid as she thought people would be nasty about the incident.
"It did spoil it a little bit."
"She was a bit distressed when she came home but I told her not to take it to heart and I think she's able to laugh it off now."
"I can't believe how big the story has become. You can even buy 'poo girl' hoodies!"
A job like this is all in a days work for Splashdown festival portable toilet plumber, Kenny (The Dalai-Lama of Waste Management)
Hopefully she will be able to put this all behind her....
erm, sorry...just had to let that one go.
But according to the Sun article, she already works there...
Best place for an iPhone!
Surprised no-one else has said this but: "She should have gone to specsavers ..."
Never mind sticks, legs are longer than arms and further away from your head.
Having seen her photo, I wonder...
...is that her natural hair colour :)
@Alan 6 and all the anonymous COWARDS,
Jesus H Christ...! It only takes the most tenuous, weakest hint of an iPhone and you lot start feverishly bobbing up and down on your chairs, struggling to get a full breath of air at the anticipation of being able to slag it off. You're like a paedophile in a primary school.
It's a phone. Get over it morons. No-one's expecting or forcing you to buy one.
The jealousy is quite clear.
