Seems some people are so against using a public restroom to go number 2 that they will hold it for up to three hours to avoid it. A survey found that a whopping 70% wait to poop until they can be in the comfort of their own home. And 66% of the people surveyed said they hold it rather than using the restroom at work. 71% said they had a special bathroom they used specifically to go number two at work. And this is interesting: Men are more likely to hold it than women. 74% of men say they hold it compared to 65% of women. On average, people are holding it in for two-and-a-half hours so they can poop at home. Men are willing to wait three hours, compared to two hours for women.
