  1. Blimey, sounds like you did well to conceal it so well! I have to say, it's just about the perfect scenario for me - the desperate bus ride followed by, with relief so near, a long queue with fewer options to keep it subtle
  2. It's never something that's happened to me - I can usually hold it for what seems like forever and there's only a couple of (unplanned!) occasions that I can think of where I've been struggling so much that laughing or sneezing or whatever might've caused me to lose control! I love both stories though - they're really well written and I'd love to hear more, especially if there's more examples of unwisely ignoring your needs . I particularly liked the story on the other thread, with the queue to get into the club (how long did you have to wait in that state?!). My friends who went to uni in Sheffield will sympathise with you about the hills!
  3. Not a hope normally, perhaps unless it's a very short day (like my first day back this week, which is well under six hours). I drink a lot of tea, I need to concentrate too so good hydration is important, and I can go anything up to four hours without easy access to a toilet so I often go for one 'just in case' when I get chance. I think I'd normally go three times in a ten hour day although I could probably do without the first one. It's always worse in the morning though - on one particular job that starts just after 5am, I go for one just after starting work and I'm ready for another one by 6am (if I'm lucky, I get chance to quickly go for one at about 6:15, otherwise I have to make it last until after 8:30...).
  4. It's all very odd and I'm not sure that I like it. I was thinking about it earlier. It hasn't made much difference to me in an omo sense, really, yet at least. I don't spend anywhere near enough time out shopping to have to worry about it, but then there's often quite long queues to get into most shops at the moment which might change things for some people. I still (carefully) use the toilets at work because I drink too much tea not to - I think the public toilets are closed in most places that we go to, but I rarely use them anyway as we usually have our own facilities available. In normal times, there's plenty of omo potential during the working day in between toilet opportunities, but even that's less of a thing at the moment because we're not doing anywhere near as much work and everything's generally much more relaxed. Strange times indeed.
  5. I work in an environment where access to a toilet is often limited, because of the nature of the work. It isn't unreasonable. What we do have is the right to take our breaks in locations with suitable welfare facilities, which must include a toilet. The timing of our breaks is tied into quite a complex agreement to make sure that we're not forced to work too long without a break, so it varies, but tends to be around a maximum of five to six hours without a break. Although we almost always have the opportunity to sneak a quick toilet visit at some point between our proper breaks, others in the industry don't have that option and often rely on bushes and the like, and there's a push at the moment to bring the maximum time between breaks (or at least 'planned' toilet opportunities!) down to four hours, largely because there's more and more women in the job who understandably don't think having to hide behind a bush is a reasonable (or even practical) solution. It is reasonable, in my view, to be expected to work for a period of time without access to a toilet, but certainly not all day or any longer than you'd be expected (legally) to work without a break. I don't think I could anyway, nor do I think most of my colleagues could.
  6. The only way I’ve done it is with motivation from someone else, and by being *really* well hydrated (other than the one time when I made an unplanned road trip right to the edge!). It takes me far too long otherwise, though, as I just seem to be able to hold it forever!
  7. A similar theme - I was waiting for my train to work yesterday, chatting to the station staff, who was telling me all about his morning dealing with the aftermath of the waiting room being broken into and smashed up, meaning that it had to be locked up until it could be sorted as it wasn't safe. The ladies' toilets, unfortunately for them, are accessed through the waiting room. As I was talking to him, a girl approached him and asked whether there were any other toilets, saying that she'd had a bit of a bus journey to get to the station so could really do with it! I'm sure I spotted a little bit of a wiggle as she splen. Happily for her, he said that she could use the staff toilet and went off to unlock it - there's a door straight off the platform so no great drama with accessing non-public areas, otherwise it might have been a different outcome in the current security climate...
  8. Long pees are by far the best type - enormous relief to conclude a long and desperate struggle, even better if it really is pushing you to the point of 'just made it'. It'd be a bonus if you found that you'd left your jug in the (occupied) bathroom one morning though, thus forcing you to keep holding just a little bit longer
  9. I'm sort of similar, I think. I don't like excusing myself at all, really! Maybe I see it as a sign of omo weakness or something, I don't know (not that anyone would understand at work, I guess!). Thankfully we don't do the 'meeting' sort of environment much, but I'm quite often in situations where I have to say that I'm going for a visit - earlier today, for example, a twenty minute break in which I was planning to go to the toilet, but we had a problem that we ended up spending twenty-five minutes trying to fix! I was on the phone to the engineer, and (realising that my window of opportunity was rapidly disappearing!) eventually had to pass him over to someone else whilst I went whilst I still had the chance. I do find that generally I don't really mind announcing where I'm going, even if I'm the first to go, but I really don't like the thought of announcing where I'm going and then (for whatever reason) being deprived of the opportunity to go, because then everyone knows that I need to go and that I've not been able to go. It doesn't make much sense to me.
  10. I am, occasionally at least!
  11. I'm sure the Discord crowd will make you sit there longer though! Looking forward to it anyway. Keep us updated on when you're going to go for it
  12. Yes! Pretty much all the time, really. There's been a lot of (not weather related) traffic chaos around here in the last few days with lots of discussion on social media and in the news about how long it's taking people to get home. I can't help but think that quite a few of them must have been really struggling! I usually end up trying to imagine how someone might be desperate in pretty much any day-to-day scenario.
  13. Depends how long you think you have left, I suppose! Half an hour (with a bottle of water of course) should do it if you're already struggling, with a decent walk home still to do afterwards
  14. Excellent! Rapid desperation seems to be the way. I share your pain on that one I think - it just seems to go on forever otherwise... How far from home to the park? Public toilets are definitely out of bounds. Maybe sit and watch the desperate drunks (I love desperate drunks) for an agreed period of time before trying to walk home though?
