Phi of the Day: Phi Kee

On a lighter note, today we look at the Phi Kee of Southeast Asia, especially Laos and Thailand.

 This one is arguably one of the more helpful of the spirits, or at least ambivalent towards humans. It is encountered when you go to the toilet, following a nightmare.

Folklore suggests you should politely ask your excrement to go peacefully before flushing so that the Phi Kee will also take away any bad luck with it on its way out. No one seems to have any accounts of the consequences if you're rude or demanding about it, although given its domain, it seems something you really shouldn't push.

 But what are some of the stories and advice you've heard regarding this spirit?
