When you feel the sudden urge to go and do not have a restroom readily available, it can be one of the most embarrassing, uncomfortable experiences. Whether on a bus, in line at a store or hiking—having diarrhea anywhere apart from your own toilet can turn an otherwise pleasant experience into something worse than you ever imagined. We've compiled this list of 20 places that are the worst possible for unexpected bouts of Diarrhea.
1. Mid Pap-Smear
One user posted, “In the middle of a pap-smear.”

2. On an Airplane
“Airplane,” one user shared.
Another user added, “Airplanes coming into land with the fasten seatbelts sign on.”
One user replied, “This happened to me when I was like 10 or 11. I sat between 2 strangers and they were rubbing my back and holding my hand because they thought I was scared, but I just had my eyes shut tight and was bent over because I was trying to hold it in (which I fortunately did).”
3. Your Wedding Day
One user shared, “Bride at the altar.”
Another user commented, “This is my answer. We practically had to use power tools to get my friend into and out of her dress, so that would be pretty bad.”
Another user commented, “I read a story where the bride messed herself at the wedding. She had it in a barn venue, and while it had some air-conditioning, it wasn't great. She also had like three layers of shapewear on. Luckily, it happened after the I do's, but it was as the bridal party was getting announced at the reception and just before the dances. It was pure sludge, and instead of leaking down the tight band around the upper thighs from the shape, we left it all in. It got sandwiched in and kept pushing upwards into the shape. It went up her back, and she could feel it all rubbing in as she moved. She was beside herself but didn't want to embarrass herself more by leaving in the middle of the dances.”
One replied, “Man—all that effort and planning and expense. Just to mess yourself and dance around in it on the day of. I would have been so upset.”
4. In the Car
“Driving to a Christmas Eve party with your teenage son in the car. It happens. You must explain to your son, call the hosts, and then take out Applebee's for Christmas Eve dinner. I was doing chemo/radiation for colon cancer at the time. (12 years cancer free!)” one user posted.

Another user replied, “Those poor people… 50 miles away.”
One user shared, “ANYWHERE, except sitting on the toilet, but even there, it ain't fun.”

There being literally no options, she climbed into the backseat and messed into a Dunkin Donuts box. Which she then placed carefully on the side of the bridge. Later on, she said she felt bad imagining some poor homeless soul coming along to discover a box of donuts. More like a box of donuts.”
