Spin-off, obviously from the other pee thread.
We went skiing this year and DS9 realised, halfway down the longest run on the mountain that he needed to go. We were skiing as a family group - everyone very different abilities and no phone service. I had DS9 and DSD12 with me and we zipped down to the lift ahead of DH and DSS. The lift line was jam-packed. By this stage DS9 was frantic and told me he needed to go NOW.
We had to take off our skis and stomp back up the track a bit (no trees anywhere nearby) and then he had to lean against the child-catcher fence and pee through it over the side of the mountain, while skiers skied past us to the bottom and I shielded him with my body.
Worst place ever.

Boys easier then girls.
DD TT and driving Melb to Sydney. She decides she needs to wee now, so pull over on side of Hwy. try to teach her how to squat. She doesn't like that idea, so I suggest a pull up and for her to wee in that.... She was much happier. Will be ourchasing a cheap plastic potty for our Christmas drive.

Not my kid, but me!
When I was 5 I was on my dad's shoulders when we were on holidays in america and fell asleep and wet my pants. I think it may have been honolulu airport to be exact.

In the middle of his baptism. DH managed to get DS off church grounds (just), but the priest had to come back to DS as things were missed

Nothing dramatic.....DD has only been TT'd for a year.....but.......
When DS was a newborn and maybe 10days old I ventured out for the first time with both of them Christmas shopping. They were perfectly well behaved, DS slept the whole time in the pram, DD an angel. Thought awesome, I can do this, so I of course completely push my luck and go for a much needed coffee at a cafe. Sit down, baby stirs, bugger it has been hours so he needs a feed as he starts that newborn wailing. So I start my first public breastfeeding, remember he is only 10 days old, attachment is a bit rubbish, it takes ages etc. Just as he latches on DD says 'I need a wee mum'. I nearly cried.

My brother needed the bathroom just as we were taking off from Hobart airport - he couldn't move fast enough once that fasten seatbelt sign came off!

Funniest one was when DS was a little tacker we went to a community christmas carols thing. The only toilets available were portaloos. That would have been fine but for reasons unknown the water in them was pink and he would absolutely not pee in it. That was the evening he learnt that he could pee standing up and spray the trees. DH did take him quite a distance from the carols to do it though.

The car park at a Rivers Clearance Store
There was no toilet ANYWHERE and DD1 was toilet training so I took her outside to a patch of trees

The most embarrassing one was with DS, who was a total pain in the a*se with toilet training...it took no less than a YEAR to get him doing both toileting varieties in the toilet and nowhere else.
Anyway, on a trip to rarotonga we were in a shop getting some more sunscreen. I did that one second DS beside me....next second DS nowhere to be seen thing. We were going around the shop calling him...he had gone UNDER a clothes rack and peed all over the floor. The shop person didn't understand what we were telling her and we were standing in this shop miming peeing to this lady. I finally made it clear what had happened and then had a mime argument about how I would clean it up and she kept saying no, don't worry. Eventually I just dived under with a spare T-shirt and wiped it up and with much apologies scurried out of the place!

My almost TT DD and I were watching my cousins play rugby on the hill when DD decided she needed to wee immediately. The toilets were on the other side of the field & I knew she wouldn't make it and it wasn't crowded so just walked over the hill. I get her sorted & she starts doing her business. I'm watching her & she starts doing a poo face. I yell "stop...don't do a poo", but it's to late. I just have to watch while DD produces a brown paper package a large dog would have been proud of.
Luckily my cousin's girlfriend heard me yell & offered me one of her doggie's poo bags.

Not a kid, but DH - On honeymoon in Africa. We were on a tour and one evening went for a drive through the game park at sunset. Everyone was playing animal bingo, so a sip of beer for a springbok, three for a giraffe, that sort of thing. It was a good day for game and sure enough after a bit DH says he will die if he doesn't pee. Problem is you are NOT allowed to set foot out of your vehicle due to lions. Lions have been known to track people who have apparently....guide scares us witless. Guide will not budge. Eventually DH is literally crying from pain. Seriously, he is just desperate. I tell the guide he has to pull over or DH will do himself an injury so they do and they send all the women to the back of the bus so DH can stand on the top step and pee out the door LOL. Of course the second we stop about 4 other guys all queue up desperately to do the same thing.

A kid one - when DS2 was TTing I went to an assembly for DS1. Took my eye off DS2 for a second and next thing I hear laughing. Look around and DS2 has pants down and is peeing into the garden right in front of a whole class of kids lined up waiting to go back to class. I was mortified but trying to be positive because he didn't do it in his pants.

Eamon has peed on the train before, sitting down. He was too scared to walk when the train was moving and wouldn't even let me stand up!!

DS, on the train, luckily I had an empty water bottle on hand and luckily it was DS!

In our early 20s DH and I got locked out on a balcony at a party once. We were out there for over an hour, and had been drinking beer. DH went off the side, it was a busy road too. He says he did it because he had no choice, but I think he secretly enjoyed it!

There has been more than one adult situation in our lifetimes...mainly DH and not me but with our kids you used to be able to get blow up potties that I kept in my nappy bag and car.
I don't know if you can still get them but about 3 puffs and it was up and you lined it with a plastic self sealing liner.
I used to keep a lidded plastic box in the car to put the full bags in
They were the bomb!

I was at a park with my Dad one day who has prostate and bladder issues. When he needs to go he has to GO!
We were on a hill of the park with zig zag pathways. There was a pathway below us but we didnt know about that one. I walked ahead of dad while he relieved himself. He was interrupted by a young girl shouting 'look mummy its raining' and pointing at dads stream of urine. He thought it was hilarious I nearly died with the kill stare i got off the mum. I felt so bad for them. Lucky it didnt hit them though.
My DH is terrible when we are out and about for passing public toilets and then when we are past them and miles away decideding he needs to go . So we have to trek back. Its like the sight of a loo gives him the idea to pee and it isnt till we are a certain distance away that his body says 'yep you need to go'.
Me on the other hand I pee at every available opportunity.
Posted 07 December 2012 - 02:54 PM
This is where my DH's favourite story is appropriate. His grandmother was on a picnic, in her earlyish years. She was born in 1880 something, and saw a boy standing and doing his thing having a pee.
Her comment "handy thing to take on a picnic"
How truthful is that!

I was caught on top of Mt Kosciusko squatting with my pants around my ankles. Unfortunately the fog wasn't thick enough to hide me like my Mum promised.

Year 8 camp, we had to abseil into a cave then crawl through a really small tunnel to get to this massive underground lake in a very large cavern. We're all geared up with abseil harnesses, helmets and what not and I had to go....where the heck do you go in a cave?
The plus side was with all the torches and lamps off it was dark enough that no one could see..
