Posting selfies on Instagram to celebrate looking good is a standard part of modern life. But checking you’ve got a good background is key and one woman learned the hard way when she realised she had caught her boyfriend in an awkward position.
Shannon Butt posed for a picture in a Dsquared2 Icon cap, a black top, sunglasses, and blue and black skirt, and put it up on social media.
But after the picture was online for 37 minutes on her Instagram page she realised she had captured far more than she’d intended.
The 22-year-old from Gloucestershire saw that the double reflection had caught her boyfriend Harry wiping his bum after going to the toilet.
She was left in hysterics about what had happened and shared the story with her friends, who said she should post it on Twitter.
She captioned it: “As if I had this photo up on my insta for 37 minutes before noticing that my boyfriend is literally WIPING HIS ARSE in the mirror behind me, sound asf x.”
Mirror Online reports her post has had more than 125,000 likes and hundreds of comments – the majority of which have been questioning Harry’s wiping technique.
One commented: “Why is he stood up? What kind of person does that?!”

Another said: “Stand up wiper, respect.”
Ms Butt said: “I was with my friend and we both immediately started crying laughing [when we noticed it] and I was like omg I need to delete it.
“Then I mentioned it in the group chat and my friend was like you have to put that on Twitter it will be hilarious.
“I was in [the bathroom] first and he came in and I was like, ‘babe I’m taking a picture’, and he just carried on so, I just took the picture without thinking anything of it and left.”
She added: “I didn’t even upload the picture straight away; I left it a few days and thought, ‘ahh that’s a nice photo, I’ll put it on’, without even realising he was in the background.”
Even Shannon’s brother had a few thoughts, commenting: “Good to know my future brother-in-law only pulls his boxers down to just below where he s***s from, finishes s****ing and turns to face the wall before standing up and wiping without toilet roll.
“Can’t get more normal than that.”
