A Wellington commuter from Silverstream, just had to include that, was caught short on a train stalled by fallen electricity wires and could not seek relief as those carriages have no toilet on board.
Forced to relieve herself into a plastic bag in view of 20 passengers the poor dear was traumatised to tears, had to carry her little bag off the train and did not want photos as she would be recognisable from a previous TV appearance.
When you gotta go you gotta go as Dover Samuels decided in a hotel lobby a few years ago, he solved his dilemma with the aid of a pot plant.
Dover was alleged to be slightly inebriated, I bet he didn't succeed entirely and I doubt many would have remonstrated had that woman sought similar relief. No suggestion she was intoxicated and there are many medical reasons for such problems arising.
I have another bet she would not have been the first to pee in a Wellington commuter train carriage either.
I am not one of the heartless bastards suggesting she should have been encouraged to step off and risk electrocution, that would not have been a fair punishment, totally OTT.
