Sure, potty training is usually a disgusting nightmare. But the worst part sometimes comes after the training has been completed, a.k.a. when the trainee begins to take matters into their own hands. This is especially true for 3-year-old Freddie, who has suddenly become Twitter famous for his strange potty habit.
Phoebe Bartlett, 21, recently tweeted a photo of her 3-year-old brother's attempt at managing his pees on his own. In the picture, Freddie is wearing a Batman costume and crying pretty heavily. He's leaning on a dresser with an open drawer. The drawer looks suspiciously yellow, and Bartlett's caption clears up exactly why the drawer is so yellow–and it's exactly what you're thinking. "Mum has just found a draw full off piss that my 3 year old brother has been pissing in and he blamed the dog HAHA!!!" she wrote.
"What happened was mum could smell wee in her room for about a week, but couldn't find a patch from the dog, so she asked my brother if the wee was in her room," Bartlett told BuzzFeed. "Then he opened the drawer and she screamed and said, 'Did you do this?' and he then said he did." The scene was so funny that Bartlett couldn't help but snap a pic and tweet it out.
She also provided a theory as to why her little brother was peeing in the drawer. "He's only 3 years old," Bartlett told BuzzFeed. "He must have been doing it while he's in his room watching his tablet, which is also on the drawer, and can't be bothered to go to the toilet, so he opened the drawer and was peeing in there."
Let this be a lesson to you all: If you really can't bear to pause your show or game for two minutes to go relieve yourself, bringing the tablet into the bathroom is 1 million times better than peeing in a drawer. No exceptions.
Bartlett's tweet went hella viral, and tons of people responded with praise and pee jokes.
However, others had less-than-nice things to say.
Not to worry, haters: Bartlett told BuzzFeed that her mother has no problem with the tweet. She told the outlet: "But at the end of the day, it's my brother, and my mum is fine with it, so it's OK!"
