A Southampton man has nullified hours of essential house de-smelling by using the toilet by the front door, just five minutes before dinner guests arrived.
Laura Thape (37) watched on in horror as her husband arrived back from Spar with the wine and expensive crisps, and rushed straight into the downstairs toilet. Laura had already dusted, cleaned, and steamed in an anxious bid to remove the stable-like smell that dominated the house. With two minutes to spare, Laura watched the scented candle flicker, as it fought to neutralise her husband’s deposit.
‘He’s an idiot. It’s the first rule of entertaining. Once the under-stairs lav’s done, you leave it,’ said Laura.
‘You can’t just spray deodorant. Everyone knows what’s happened then,’ added Laura.
