When you're in the car and nature calls, do you heed it or hold it? A new survey by Quilted Northern toilet paper found that 70% of people just bear down and wait until they get home. But not Hoda — when she's gotta go, she's gotta go.
The ladies shared their own mortifying experiences with plumbing emergencies. Like in Israel, where KLG discovered there were no formal toilets, or the time Hoda was running a marathon and decided she could no longer wait. She banged on a random person's door and asked to use the bathroom, "sweaty, stinky, and then ran out."
If that's not bad enough, Hoda noted that sometimes there's still room for embarrassment even when you FIND a public bathroom — like when the automatic toilets malfunction and the other people in the bathroom get the impression you're a non-flusher. Heaven forbid.
