THE RAW STORY: Brown Friday: Why do people poop in retail stores?

"Unless you’ve worked in retail, you’ve probably never heard of it. If you have worked in retail, then you know that sometimes, if you will, shit gets real. For some unfathomable reason, people poop in retail clothing stores, particularly in fitting rooms and inside the circular clothing racks called “rounders,” but other times they’ll just do it in a corner or, perversely, on the floor right next to the toilet.
As a former employee of Gap, Inc. and Borders Books, this reporter can confirm that the phenomenon exists.
