Five Toilet Aim Styles

Keeping your toilet clean can be hard if you have little kids – especially if you have boys in the house. I haven’t had to toilet train boys but I have serviced enough toilets in households that have sons to know aiming straight is a skill. For some it’s a skill yet to be grasped. This is my list of five toilet aim styles.

First up we have Mr Squiggle. Their intention is in the right place and the outline of the toilet makes it obvious where the picture should be filled in but the strings are a bit sloppy. Sometimes the fill in part happens outside the toilet.  At least Mr Squiggles have their nose in the right place. 😉

The second aim style is the Coffee Perculator. They drip on the seat or the floor and walk away. Coffee Perculators can be both male and female. Drips cause stains and odours! If you see a drip, clean it quick!

The third aim is the rebound style where the top lid of the toilet is the target with the flow rebounding back into the bowl. Most often it doesn’t rebound and the wee pools behind the toilet seat where it sits and festers into green slimey stain. Gross. Rebounds are best left on the basketball court.

The fourth aim is one that causes the most damage: the fire hose. As everyone knows, a fire hose will aim everywhere and anywhere if not held securely. You know you have a fire hose aimer because the evidence will not only be on the floor and the toilet, but also on the walls… and possibly the window shelf too.

The fifth and last aim is the bullseye and every mum wants all their aimers to be one of these. Bullseyes are straight-in-ones. No hosing around and no drips. Just straight shooting to the bowl and NO MESS.

So there are my five toilet aim styles. Can you relate to having any of these in your home? Can you think of any more? 🙂

    You missed the one where apparently the toilet is irrelevant and just anywhere on the bathroom floor will do….

    • The Plumbette

      Hmmm a mix between Mr Squiggle, Fire Hose and Percolator. Anywhere on the bathroom floor is so not cool. I come across this more in public toilets. It’s disgusting.

  • Jody Scott-greer

    HAHA! Yes I have some in every style! Pity me with 5 of my household of 8 being males! And the fire hose is the worst! The culprit never owns up either! Jody at Six Little Hearts

    • The Plumbette

      So true. Fire hoses always deny their crime scene. Good luck with your five…. LOL.

  • Bec | Mumma Tells

    Oh too funny! Those green stains… eeewww.

    • The Plumbette

      The stains are bad, but the smells are worse…. 😉

  • Renee at Mummy, Wife, Me

    • The Plumbette

      Yes, I have the same at our house too. 🙂

  • Money Mummy

    LOL Bec! You really do get to see it all! 🙂

    • The Plumbette

      You mean smell it all. 😉

  • My boy is a shocker, I’m dreading as I have 2 teenage boys – isn’t that what those toilet mats are for 🙂 xx

    • The Plumbette

      I hate those toilet mats. They STINK of whizz. It does keep the floor dry though…

  • Too funny! I only have girls, but the eldest is definitely a percolator! 🙂

    • The Plumbette

      Yes, I can relate to having a percolator too. More often they are girls.

  • Yep, just another reason why I’m glad there is only 1 man in this house!

    • The Plumbette

      Baha! I agree and have the same too.

  • Maxabella

    I haven’t had such a great laugh in ages, but sadly the laugh is on me. Could they just clean it up ONCE, just that one time!?!?! x

  • And added to all this they leave the seat up!

  • Kate

    Classic. I grew up in a family of girls but now have 2 boys. Both are too young to be toilet trained yet but I definitely felt like I was looking into the future: haven’t really considered it but will be reality soon enough!
