What to do when you're caught short?

Where can you go to the toilet?
Quote
People often employ one of two strategies to look surreptitious when using toilets in commercial premises, having entered with no intention of buying anything.
In pubs, the non-patron toilet user may pretend to look around the pub for a few seconds, as if for a friend that is due to be met, before heading to the toilets.
In a fast-food restaurant, a quick scan of the menu before heading to the loos at least suggests you might be about to buy some chicken nuggets when you've finished with the conveniences.

They menton McDonald's where I've rushed in on many occasion to use their loos. Not quite the same in Ukraine where all the McDonald's I've been to the toilets are locked and you get a code on your receipt you can use like a PIN to unlock them.

I don't have a bladder or prostate as they were removed to treat advanced bladder cancer in June 2009. I wee through a stoma to the right of my naval so just empty bag when convenient.

Glad you think so, sounds bad enough to me. But delighted to hear you've beaten it. A long life and health to you...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
