The Six Words You Never Want to Hear While in the Checkout Line at Costco with a Cart Full of Loot

"Mommy, I hafta go potty NOW!"


  1. Sooo, now I'm in suspense! What did you DO?
    Hopefully it didn't turn out like this--
    When I was a little girl, I was at the mall with my parents this one time and I kept complaining that I had to go potty. Apparently I had been going potty ALL DAY LONG so my mom thought I was making it up, that I was playing in the potty or some such. My mom finally got so aggravated with my whining that she exclaimed "Oh, just go on the floor!"
    And I did. Right there in B. Dalton.
    I suppose that story should be embarrassing, but really, I find it pretty funny.

  2. Ooooh, that SUCKS! I HATE that! Maddie did that to me a few weeks ago at the Jewel/Osco, and we had been waiting in one of only TWO checkout lines (why dear god why doesn't that bitch on smoke break get her ass over here and open a new lane...), both of which were long as hell. I had to take her to the bathroom, we lost our spot in line, and had to come back and wait for another ten minutes.
    I feel your pain!
