Emergency washroom situations can happen any day, any time, and you can do nothing about it!
A netizen recently asked, “Am I a jerk for cutting the line and stealing the handicap stall from a disabled person?”. Let us know what you think in the comments section!
On Friday, the Original Poster (OP) was shopping at this Ranch99 store with restaurants in it.
“I’ve been having some stomach aches but not sure why, thought maybe it was my period soon.”, says OP
It’s an Asian shop, and it was also the autumn moon festival, so it was crowded. Suddenly, OP had to go to the washroom. She left everything in a cart in the aisle and ran for the bathroom.
There was a decent-sized line, but OP just ran forward and cut in front of everyone.
OP STOLE THE STALL
There was an elderly woman who was about to make her way to the handicapped stall, but OP rushed forward and blurted out, “I’m sorry, I need to go.” She tried to protest (along with other people in line), but OP disregarded them and ran in and locked the door.
THE EXPLOSION AHEAD
It was followed by explosive diarrhea that was very audible to everyone. The grandma and all the other guests were hurling insults at OP for being disrespectful and saying she was horrible for cutting in line, but OP says it honestly felt like an emergency.
WHAT DOES OP ASK?
“Was I a jerk for cutting all the people in line to the bathroom and essentially stealing the stall from the grandma?” asks OP.
NO JERKS HERE
“No jerks here, the only thing you could’ve done differently was yell as you were running, ‘I’ve got diarrhea, I’ve got diarrhea!’ Sure, it is embarrassing, but no more embarrassing than them hearing you having explosive diarrhea.
Also, if I ever heard someone in clear bathroom distress, I would shut my mouth and be glad they chose to cut in line rather than pooping on the floor or in their pants!”
IT WAS A NECESSITY
“Not the jerk. It was necessary, and I’m sure the staff would be happy you went there and not on the floor.”
THE INITIAL ANGER IS UNDERSTANDABLE
“Not the jerk. The initial anger is understandable. After hearing diarrhea sounds, the feeling should change to gratitude (assuming everything was contained to the toilet, and you didn’t leave a mess in the stall).
I would much rather wait a little longer to go to the bathroom than have to wait in line with someone who just had straight diarrhea in their pants.”
A JUSTIFIED JERK
“When you have to go, you have to go. This is another example of why we need a “Justified Jerk” vote. What you did was rude but seemingly unavoidable given the circumstances.”
YOU MADE THE RIGHT CALL
“No jerks here. You took the best option in a sea of stupid (that’s right) options. I’m sure their anger was tempered by the sounds of explosive diarrhea, letting them know this was an actual emergency.
Their choice was to stand next to a stinking mess of diarrhea or wait a couple more minutes for a stall. I think you made the right call.”
THAT WAS A REAL EMERGENCY
“Not the jerk, that was a real emergency and awful for you. I’m sorry that happened. It’s everyone’s worst nightmare; don’t feel bad!”
EVERYONE’S IN THE WRONG
“Everyone’s in the wrong, honestly. You don’t know whether or not the other people also had emergencies, but at the same time, when you got to go, you got to go, to be honest. The lady and the other people were jerks for insulting you, though.”
