When my husband got home from work last night he shared this funny story about himself from yesterday at work. It was hilarious!! He said he had not had to go to the bathroom all day, but he had been drinking ice water because of the heat. He had also decided to get himself one of the 20 oz. Pepsis after having had water all day. Well it suddenly hit him to have to go to the bathroom. He delivers mail in Florence, Alabama. Well the closest place for him to find a bathroom was at a McDonalds. He went in through the side door because he knew where the bathrooms were. He really needed to go bad (I'm laughing again as I type this HA! Ha!) and he said he was sort of waddling as he walked in trying to hurry to get to the bathroom LOL!! As he was heading that way there was a lady inside with her little girl whom my husband said looked like she was about 4 or 5 years old. She whispered to her mother "Mama, why is the postman walking so funny?" Her mother whispered back "I think he is going to the restroom." She then asked her mother "Do you think he may need some help getting in there?" My husband said he was trying not to laugh because he had to go so bad and he knew it would make it worse LOL!! I was about to fall I was laughing so hard by this time. My mother called me and my husband told me to tell her about it and our son was standing in the room at the same time. My mother got a tremendous laugh out of it and our son was turning red in the face and his shoulders were shaking he was laughing so hard!! I just wanted to share this funny with all of you, hope it will give you a chuckle for the day!! God Bless and thanks for listening!! SheliaLee

Ah, kids say the darndest thing. I am sure it was much more rewarding to hear it in person, as your writing does not give the justification I think this deserves. Very precious indeed! I appreciate you for sharing it. Have a wonderful day!

This is hilarious. I've been in the same situation as your husband in needing to go so badly you were afraid you'd never make it. Glad I never had a kid to say something like that, or I would have had an accident for sure. There is no way I could have kept from laughing!! Kids are so funny at times. They are just honest little folks and say the first thing that comes to mind.

I have been that way too and I'm like you I'm afraid I would have had an accident. I had to go to the bathroom from laughing so hard after my husband shared this with us last night because I have bladder problems anyway LOL!!

From time to time I see the same walk on my husband. LOL. I can imagine that it was bad if a four year old noticed. Leave it to a child to be honest enough to say something. The laughter was good for your entire family.

That is hilarious. I have a funny story, too. We are at a water park one time. A very good friend of mine had an upset stomach and went in his pants before he could get to the bathroom. He said that he went to the bathroom to clean up and there was a line. So, he looked right at the man and said, "Look, I just pooped my pants and I am going ahead of you." He said the man didn't say a word and stepped aside I was rolling when he told me this.

My daughter will get a kick out of that! She had an accident in the car on the way home from our vacation and I told her that even adults had accidents and close calls. I don't think she believed me...

That's a funny story and the little girl was just like the one in "the emperor's new clothes" who blurts out what she says without inhibitions.

Hi SheliaLee, How true it is that you never know what kids will say. That was a funny one, and it seems you all enjoyed the laugh. Blessings.

Poor guy! That is funny though. I think a lot of us have been sitting in a fast food place and we can pick out people who stop strictly for bathroom purposes. Especially at rest stops with McDonalds. You can see parents running with little kids, or grown ups waddling like you mentioned!

That reminds me of the time a man came to repair our furnace and he asked my mother and I not to look at him when he turned around. It seems he had caught his pants on something. When he left we both peeked and he had a great big rip all the way to the skin of his little buttox! We held in the laughter until he got out the door! Once my Dad, an electrician, was walking in the attic of an apt. building. He accidentally stepped off the joist and his leg went through the ceiling. A lady on the other side screamed in terror! That's what you call embarrassment on the job!

Well thanks for the laugh Sheila! Too bad it was at your poor husbands's expense!Next time tell him not to wait so long! He has a really tough job. I give him alot of credit. He has to be out there in all kinds of nasty weather no matter what. It really takes a tough person to do that. I totally respect him for that. Tell him that I appreciate what he and all the other postpeople do for us! God Bless you and your family!

That was so funny, thanks for the chuckle! That was one very observant little 4/5 year old! Did your husband make it all the way into the restroom?

Oh, I have been in that spot...it's horrible when you have to go really bad and are afraid you won't make it. You have one driving thought...GO PEE...you don't care how goofy you look or being polite or anything...you just have to go!! I've seen other men and women end up in the same situation and it is funny but you sure do feel for them. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
