Backdoor Explosion

October 19, 2009

in Odor Stories

I was on a quick flight from BWI to DTW. We boarded the plane as usual and a man in the row behind me got up to use the lavatory at the rear of the plane. However, I guess he didn’t quite make it onto the toilet. Apparently he covered much of the room with his explosive diarrhea. Of course, the smell lingered up the entire plane. The flight ended up being delayed almost 2 hours so the area could be cleaned and sanitized (God bless the guys that had to deal with that job). Then a doctor for NWA had to come and make this guy sign a waiver saying he was traveling against medical orders. The rest of the flight was uneventful. I spent my time praying for no more explosions.

Two stories in a row with things I don't understand. Did the guy drop his pants before he got to the bathroom? If not, how did his explosive diarhea get all over the plane?

What… you want some of these stories to make sense?

You fool. 😉

Actually, re-reading it, it does make sense. He made it to the bathroom, but not onto the toilet – so it was the lavatory that was spray-painted.

Demotage, sounds like you've never had this particular affliction. Despite one's best efforts (and speedy running down the aisle), it is indeed possible to have things explode even if the pants are still up.

What probably happened though is that he was in the lavatory and in the process of "dropping trou" when nature took over.

It reminds me of a story from WWII. At a POW camp the commander was complaining about all the soldiers with diarrhea who couldn't make it to the latrine. The medic assured him that it was entirely voluntary and soldiers could indeed get to the latrine in time if only they tried.

The next morning there was a fresh deposit by the barracks door and the medic allowed as how he was wrong and no, you couldn't always go the distance in the time required.

I used to work in Vietnam, and even after months of eating on the street, I eventually got a similar bug. There is very little you can do when the body needs this toxin out.

The fact he even made it in the general direction of the toilet, let alone out of his seat makes the guy talented, lucky, or blessed.
