A mum has revealed she was left mortified after her son went for a number two in a B&Q display toilet.
Caroline Akhtar had popped into the DIY store over the weekend with her partner Azzy and their four-year-old son Jacob, as well as daughters Frankie, three, and Eliza, one, to pick up a new washing line.
But Jacob found himself needing the toilet while browsing the bathroom section, and decided to have a 'very big poo' in one of the display toilets.
"Can’t quite believe what’s happened. J has taken a very big poo in one of the B&Q display toilets," Caroline wrote on Facebook.
"Only went in for a washing line, turned around and J is sat on one of the toilets. Ran to say get off but it was very much too late.
"I left to get wet wipes and came back to him still sat on there because he ‘needed to finish’ and hubby didn’t know what else to do.
"The young shop assistant couldn’t stop laughing but also completely ignored the situation, don’t blame the lad."
Despite being absolutely horrified, the parents found the funny side, with Caroline adding to NeedToKnow.online: "At first we were mortified but then we found it funnier and funnier.
"I quick paced back to the car park to get wet wipes and nappy bags and couldn’t stop laughing then. He was still on the toilet so I proceeded to help wipe his bum still and explain that the toilets in shops are not actual toilets.
"He said his sister, Frankie, said he could use it. Eliza was oblivious to it all and happy just playing on the toilets."
And other social media users found the whole situation hilarious, with one writing: "Mate I'd have walked out! Sack that!"
While another said: "Well at least he's potty trained."
And a third added: "That is the best thing I’ve ever seen."
"I have never laughed so much in my life," wrote a fourth.
And a fifth added: "OMG, what a story this will make for when he’s older."
It seems Jacob wasn't the only one to mistake the display toilet for the real thing, after one social media user shared their own similar story.
"We had that happen in Travis Perkins once, then the young lady wiped her bum with her teddy bear," they wrote.
What would you do in this situation?!
