2. Commonly known as "shy bladder"

Not me, the more the merrier. I liked the old troughs at football and base ball stadiums standing shoulder to shoulder as the piss flies. Just kidding!

4. Do you mean use a public toilet?

Is it the fixture, the company, the vulnerability? I have no general problem with my body performing appropriately unless someone is gawking at me specifically.

9. I hate quiet public restrooms where other ladies are waiting in line for a stall. Too much pressure

to hurry up and tinkle! We used to call it TB....timid bladder. As far as doing "serious bathroom business" in a public restroom....forget it! Very traumatic for me. I guess I am definitely very anal retentive? Hey foxhead----I understand and I feel your pain. I love your comment about prison!!! I agree! LOL! (Sorry--Just had to use that toilet emoji)

10. I don't do "Number Two" in public facilities!

Around 15 years ago, I was about an hour away from home, at a "Michael's" craft store, with my family.

I had to "go," you know, and I went into the restroom - and there was crap and toilet paper and the most revolting, unflushed stench EVER spread from one end of the restroom to the other, right up to the door in!

I was nauseous and retching - this was worse than any public facility I had ever been in, including every gas station I had ever been in!

And this was in a classy joint like a "Michaels?"

I ranted and raved for the entire trip back to our house! 'Cause, like, I still had to "go."

I don't use public facilities anymore unless I just have to go Number One - I don't take drinks with me, I don't drink on the road, I drink with meals but not a lot - and I have never, ever had to go Number Two.

Over the years, this became a part of our "family legends." That horrifying experience in "Michael's!"

Then, one day not too long ago - which is why I am sharing this story - my son, a grown man now - told me, "Jesus Christ, dad, let it go! I was just a little kid and I had terrible diarrhea! I'm sorry!"

I was stunned. He held that back for all those years.

But I did learn one thing.

To this day, I NEVER use a public facility after my son! EVER!

12. I got mine late in life

I was 18 first job in a manufacturing plant show up first day all ready for training, when I get the DREADED coffee call. Supervisor points me to the bathroom first clue should have been sign on door, "boys club"

Open the door to this horrendous stink inside the hallway, as I turn the corner I see a line of twenty toilets. There were about ten men varying ages of 20 to 60 sitting on half the thrones. Side note: if twenty toilets are available why would you choose the one right beside another person? Answer : I'm about to find out.

I just hafta go as it's the number 2 coffee break!

I pick one on the end turn and drop my jeans as non chalantly as possible looking at the light fixture. As I stare off trying to become invisible this old dude about 50 walks in. Coffee cup in one hand and newspaper in the other. At this moment I get religion and start to pray, please God do not let him sit beside me! He walks to other end randomly carrying on conversations when he turns! He walks back next to me sits coffee on floor along with paper and starts unhooking over all's. He sits, picks up his coffee and paper, passed gas and says "I'm fred you must be the new kid?"

Traumatized for life

17. Think about running a draw play against a prevent defense...

Late in the fourth quarter. Eight points down with one timeout left.

Same thing works when trying to "last longer" during sex.

I thought all guys knew this.

18. Boy, do I.

Sometimes, even if I have to pee really bad, I can't go if there are people around. Family members seem to be an exception. What I really hate is when I'm with a group of people and I excuse myself to go to the ladies room and someone says, "Oh, me too, I'll come along." Arrrgh. The noisier the public bathroom the better. Also at work, if I know their are patients waiting for me it takes me forever to even get started because I'm worried about being gone. It's terrible.

22. Nope. If I have to go, I go.

Since I don't pay attention to other people's bathroom noises, I figure they won't be paying attention to mine.

25. I've recently developed "shy bladder"

I do find it difficult to urinate if there are other people present.

And, I plan my day around not having to go "boom boom" in a public restroom.

Yeah, I've got hang-ups.

Didn't have them as a young person, but I guess I've gotten neurotic in my old age.

27. LARRY DAVID is known for knowing where all the good public toilets are in NYC

But personally, i know where every "private" bathroom is where I routinely travel so I can be private.

At ballparks for instance they have "family" restrooms that anyone can use and the door locks, otherwise I could not go to a ballgame.

28. BTW there is a drug that you can take that will allow you to hold it, #1 that is

for much longer than normal, for when you are on long trips and you know you will have issues or if you go to a concert, ballgame, etc.

Ask your doctor.

29. A possible remedy is to count backwards from 100 silently of course.

It helps to distract you and ease the "stage fright"

They got pills that will keep you from going to the bathroom a lot, and pills that will make you go if you don't go at all.
