Are you brave enough to make it through them all?

Due to an unfortunate plumbing problem, we were temporarily without water in Today FM today. This saw some of us braving the unflushed toilets, or opting to dash out to shops!

Muireann asked the listeners what were some of the grossest things that have happened in your workplace and you replied in your droves.

A quick warning, you may want to save these until later if you're eating...

Billie O'Riordan in Tipp gave us a few horror stories from the life of a dairy farmer:

They're pure sh*te! And brilliant!

And Bob the builder (no, not that one) sent us a video of this mouldy discovery on a site today.

BE WARNED. NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.

We heard from a mum who's workplace is her house, and her horror story came courtesy of her son:

Work fridges always seem to contain some unpleasant surprises, but this one takes it to a new level:

"We were asked to remove an under the counter fridge. It had been unplugged about a month and it defrosted, but the freezer had fish in it. The tray on the bottom had caught all the defrosted ice ans rotten fish. It was unbearable. We had to get proper breathing apparatus to shift it."

We heard from a few texters who wished to remain anonymous, and we can see why!
"Grossest thing to happen in work. Co-worker taking their shoes off cause they're sweating and then walking around on the shop floor. Take them off when you get home!!"

"Muireann, grossest thing that's happened, we've had someone clip their toenails in our office"

"I work with a girl who always leaves half empty yoghurt cartons, coffee cups and banana skins on her desk next to me!"

We heard from another dairy farmer with a different tale:
"Do a c-section on a cow and take out a calf with 2 heads and 8 legs - that's pretty gross don't you think?"

There was a definite theme through a lot of your responses, see if you can spot it:

"I'm a nanny, so probably him getting a stomach bug and pooing and vomiting on me. I've already caught a poo in a nappy, so that was fun!"

"The worst thing is at my work place is in the male toilets, they can't aim and there is pee all over the place!"

"Toilet over flows out of toilets into the office"

And to finish, let's take a moment to think of what our nurses have to put up with!
"Trust me, you don't want to know the grossest thing that could happen! #nursing"
