I posted this in the Crohn's and IBS forums but I thought some here might benefit from it...

Sometimes, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go. But other times, you can wait a bit. I found this website, runpee.com, that lists the best times to duck out of a movie without missing much. It gives you the time and action at the time, plus how long you have, so you can go and not miss much of the plot. Plus, if you want, it will tell you what you missed.

The graphics at the top are really funny, watch the 'N" for a minute or two.

(I am not connected to this site in any way.)

Oh my gosh!  That site is too funny.   I never get through a movie without having to go at least once.  I only go to the theater a few times a year, but I usually end up renting the movie later to see what I missed when I was running back and forth to the "loo". tongue

Too funny, but so informative!  I have 'peed' between two school buses while watching my kids play baseball because the school was closed...behind a Sunoco Station Dumpster(they have this rule that their bathroom is for customers only), of course in the woods while walking the dogs.  I know where every single restroom is in our little town and the NERVE of Price Chopper to have theirs all the way in the back of the store, through the massive doors where you have to walk through the meat department, beyond the stock room and into this dark, spooky uni-restroom that is stacked with cleaning products.  But when you gotta go, you gotta go.  We got stuck in traffic on the Throgs Neck Bridge for over an our once...that's when I decided to put something in the car that I could 'go' in when a pee emergency happened!

Huggies,

I use to be able to squat in the woods, corn field, beside the car, behind a tombstone you name it if I had to go bad enough but now if I was to manage to squat I'd have to have a crane to get me back up so those days are over. I think it is unfair that men can go anywhere and no one even knows what they are doing.
 
I don't know what the deal was but for awhile stores didn't have public restrooms but now when they build new stores they are building public restrooms and those that didn't have them have converted their restrooms to public ones around here.
 
luv and hugs

Marlee, maybe we got the bathrooms because of the American Disabilities Act!  idea    LOL  All I know is I won't shop in a store that doesn't have a public bathroom or won't let you use their's. 

I don't go to the movies because I can't hear them.  Thank goodness for DVR's!  I can stop the movie anytime the need arises and never miss a thing!

A web site of immense practical value. I take a diuretic for BP. Does anyone else always sit at the end of a row "just in case"?

Sherrine - I know the theaters around here (even our little local uni-plex) have captioned movies during the afternoon.

Thanks, Rich!  The last time I checked the theaters around me was about 5 years ago.  They could only offer headphones that were supposed to help but didn't help me.  I need captioning.  I will definitely check this out!  Thank you for letting me know!

Sherrine, as you know I am almost completely deaf too so maybe we could pick out a move, screw out heads together and the sound would pass through the large empty space between our ears and we would be able to figure out what they were saying. devil   Or...I could scream in your face, as that's what most people do to me thinking I can hear them better!

so is having to pee a lot a fibro symptom too? I was beginning to think I have a teeny little bladder. I make it a point to go before the movie, drink only a little during the movie and go again right after (oh and not rest my hands on my bladder during the movie). This last movie I forgot to go before and worried through a lot if I would make it!

That website is hilarious! Thanks for sharing it.
