  1. 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!
  2. 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...
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. I am, occasionally at least!
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. Good to see you back! Drink loads, go for a decent walk until you're far enough away (and desperate enough) that you really don't think you'll make it home, then try to walk home? Trying to hide it (or not?) in public, to some extent at least, would certainly be a nice twist! No padding, obviously, so that there's no easy way out Pictures and videos are always a bonus if you're happy with them!
  11. I guess I’m in a similar position in a lot of ways. I live a pretty normal (ish) life, interacting with all sorts of friends and family and colleagues, yet there’s this thing in the background that has to be kept completely separate, and I’m not very good at that! Maybe some of those normal people have similar things going on - who knows? I’m terrified by the thought of finding out. I’m always up for a chat (from a bit further north in the uk though!) about it all anyway!
  12. With apologies for continuing the hijack... The faff can certainly enhance the whole experience, so I try to embrace it. I spent most of my time alone in my last job, so always used to get the pot out for any visitors, but it also gave me the chance to faff with the tea that I made just for myself. I’ll never take it for granted - I’ve (mostly) left that behind, and now spend most of my time at work living out of a flask (I’ll be out and about, away from a kettle, for seven hours this evening ), making tea with water that’s nowhere near boiling any more, or sometimes being supplied with well-intentioned but usually mediocre tea where the water’s also been in an insulated vessel for some time. Access to milk is difficult too - I either carry it in its own flask, go without, or rely on little sachets of UHT (yuck) milk. But yes, for casual tea-drinking, freshly boiled water onto a teabag in the mug is acceptable. I have a couple of contraptions to dangle loose tea in a mug, but that’s a faff too. Absolutely no question about milk last, but is it okay to add the milk before removing the teabag? Maybe this needs its own thread...
  13. This ^^ !! Making it in the mug (as opposed to a pot, preferable with tea leaves) is enough of a stretch! (plus the other bit too, of course)
  14. Ah, that sounds more manageable. When I can catch the train to work (depends on start/finish time), I usually walk or cycle to and from the station isn't quite 2 miles each way but it's getting on that way. I thought that 5-7 miles each way (at least a couple of hours each way) would be a bit much on top of a full day at work! I'll happily walk 20 miles or more on a day out in the hills, but that's different!
