I volunteer at the zoo as well, and its a commute (bus, lightrail, bus again) to get there. This is also done early in the morning. I remember a couple of summers ago that I was riding my bike and needed to go BAD, but the gym I stopped by wouldn't let me go because the bathroom was "members only" (beyotches!). I stopped at ten places before I finally stopped at an office and begged them to go. Luckily they were nice and let me...
Well, today I was in the same situation. (No, I didn't stop at the gym). I went straight to the office, walked past the (empty) security desk, and came to the restroom, which was being cleaned. The janitor pointed me to the second floor bathroom, I raced up the stairs and...relief!
But that wasn't the end. While cleaning the orangutans' sleeping quarters with a hose, I suddenly had to go (and surprisingly not number one). I really like the keeper who I was volunteering under and there was no way I was about
to just lose it in front of him, so I ran and asked him if I could go. He said yes, I ran past the gibbons, jumped a fence, and made it to the bathroom just in time.
Why is it that every time you have to go, you have to go NOW? :)
