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 …
"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).
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.
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.
"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!"
@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.
