Peeing With Playboy

June 26, 2009

in Passenger Stories

I usually cut people some slack when they don’t strictly adhere to the “Remain in your seats while the fasten seatbelt light is illuminated.” When you have to go…right? However, a flight from Nashville to Miami completely changed my mind. I was seated in an aisle seat; a mid-30’s gentleman (I’ll refer to him as “Window”) was seated at the window. The middle seat was vacant. Window kept to himself throughout the flight, which is always appreciated. The only problem was his choice of reading material. Playboy? On a plane? At 8 a.m.? I ignored both Window and his “girlie mag” during the flight.

As we began our descent into Miami, and after the seat belt light had turned on, Window turns to me and asks if I think he has time to go use the restroom before we land. I said no since we were within 20 or so minutes before landing. End of story? Hardly. Suddenly, I hear a zipper and some rustling of a plastic bag. Yep, Window was peeing in the plastic bag his Playboy came in. I didn’t look, I promise. I was too horrified at the thought that this guy was urinating in his seat while I sat next to him. When he finished, he tied the top of the bag and held it until we landed. He deplaned like holding a bag of pee was the most natural thing to do. I told the flight attendants what had happened. Strangely, I don’t think they were that surprised.

Happy Reading, Holly

WOW. I mean, yeah, when you gotta go… but did he really have to wait until 20 minutes before landing? And that means he held the bag that long! o.O

For a second there when you mentioned the Playboy mag, and hearing his zipper opening, I thought you were going to say he was doing something other than urinating!
