    I admit.. I’ve peed in the trashcan before, but I have always been embarrassed about it enough to take the bag and throw it in the dumpster out back, and salon owners still got pissed at me. It’s hard because the psychological signal of having no cloths on makes u realize you gotta pee and by that time its too late to hurry and get dressed.

    I am embarrassed to admit it but I have peed in a trash can at the tanning salon! I have a bladder issue and just cannot hold it when I have to go. I however tied up the bag and brought it with me in my purse and threw it away at home. I was SO embarrassed but I am going back to the salon today….hopefully nobody knew I did it….

    thats such a funny story. i laughed so much. to all three or four that are on here. i think the spelling mistakes are worse though.

  • Ayla

  • Kayleigh

    don’t feel that embarrassed, i had something worse happen to me, i was playing hide and seek with a bunch of friends in the mall, me and my friend went into roots their was tons of people in their, i told people i had to pee really bad but no one would come with me, and i didnt have a cell phone so i wouldnt know where everone was, so i just had to hold it in. Then when we were in roots, i kneld down to hold in my pee and it slipped out pepole were staring at me in discused.. i was sooo embarrased, then i went over to my friend and told her then we ran to the washroom across the other side of the mall with pee driping down my legs, so many people were looking at me i wanted to shrink, then when we went to the bathroom, i took off my pants and my friend said shed dry them and my undies.. but i said its okay, so she dried my pants, but i went out with my undies on and dried them on the dryer, no one was in until 3:00 when people suddenly had a giant urge to pee -__- and see me their in my undies with my butt under the dryer.. i personally feel bad for the person who had to clean up my pee at roots :$

    • Sera

      I’m so sorry but LOL. That had to be horrible!

    • Genn

      um… not true. The pee dye is a myth. Look it up.

  • Kortney

    I actually work at a tanning salon, and a few of my customers have taken to peeing in the trash cans. I can understand having an emergency and really needing to go, but the majority of the people who do it are just nasty and disgusting. It might seem like a good idea at the time, but no one takes time to consider the people who have to clean it up afterwards.

    I’ve peed in some ridiculous places.
    I’m currently in Europe, where public drinking is allowed/encouraged. We were in Germany, pregaming on our way to the club we were going to, and we were all pretty damn drunk. My friend and I really had to pee, but sadly, there were no bathrooms in this underground station. We were about to miss our train, so my friend and I just had to suck it up and sit on the train. Well, I was starting to pee my pants (er, dress) because I had to go so bad. So my friend and I found an empty car of the train, luckily found a coffee cup and a can in the car, and peed in the cups. We were about to pee on the seats, but luckily, before beginning, we found those cups. Someone would’ve been really not happy. So we put the coffee lid back on the coffee cup, and brought the cups outside and set them down somewhere. Someone is going to have a fun time with that.

    YOu may have peed in a tanning bed but I pooped in one once. I couldnt open the door and the smell of heated up poop made me vomit all over myself! then i lost it! I screamed for the owner to open up but nobody ever heard me! The worst part was that my tan was uneven because the vomit and poop puddles stopped the light from reaching parts of my body.

        That’s just disgusting. I’m serious, I mean, surely it’s better to go before you get in or get up and grab a towel or summit and go to the loo. That’s horrible.
