Need urgent help

Through no fault of my own, rather because of lousy traffic flow management by the City of Zürich, I'm currently stuck in the mother of all traffic jams needing a piss near Hardturm.

Do any readers have any practical advice or a sponge?

Love

Re: Need urgent help

got a bottle handy- that is what the lorry drivers do! (the M20 road verges are littered with 1000s of 'Lucozade' bottles- yuk) - bonne chance.

Re: Need urgent help

Have one of my logistics guys sitting next to me. Now he could hold the bottle, but the whole boss / employee relationship would take years to rebuild.

Re: Need urgent help

can't you just roll down the window?

I'm sure no-one will notice.

Re: Need urgent help

Apologies for the late reply, but would need to know if you are male or female before offering good advice?

Re: Need urgent help

There was a Simpsons episode where they didn't let Abe pee whilst in the car. His kidneys popped and he ended up taking one from his son.

So you need to shag someone quick, wait 9 months for a kid, then take one of their kidneys.

I'm so helpful.

Don't think getting the logistic's guy knocked up will work somehow.

Re: Need urgent help

I made an interesting discovery at work today.

The farther you are from the urinals, the less acceptable it is to have your willy out.

I'm pretty sure that she's a he, or perhaps the other way around.
