Abusing Her Bathroom Privileges

Tom Tomorrow steered his readers toward this story about a guy who began to be concerned after his girlfriend stayed in the bathroom for two years, until she was literally stuck to the toilet seat.

He said she was too scared to come out.

This may seem funny at first, but it's actually a cautionary tale about what can happen when people with diminished mental capacities are allowed to live independently.

It was a sad story. I am glad there is no evidence of malicious intent.

It is a dilemma balancing self determination and well-being. I wish the man could have resolved the situation at the beginning.
