Did United Airlines hire a professional to make them look this bad or did they just get lucky. A woman who has a problem with an overactive bladder needed to go to the bathroom badly during a time that the plane was hit by turbulence. The flight crew ignored her pleading and instead they handed her a cup to use instead. As a result, the woman was embarrassed when she wet her seat. Now, I know how tough it would be for a man to take a whiz in a cup on a crowded plane but I can’t even imagine how in the world it would even be possible for a woman. “Fly United and Give Yourself a Golden Shower.”
A Kansas City nurse says she was forced to urinate in a cup at her seat on a United Airlines flight after a flight attendant wouldn’t let her use the restroom.
Mother-of-two Nicole Harper was on a United flight from Houston to Kansas City last month when she tried to use the restroom, but a flight attendant sent her back to her seat because the seatbelt sign was still illuminated.
‘After explaining that I have an overactive bladder and would either need to use the restroom or pee in a cup, I was handed a cup by flight attendants,’ Harper said in a Facebook post about the incident.
Harper, who was wearing a dress on the flight, said she squatted over her seat and filled two cups with urine while her husband sat next to her.
She wrote on Facebook of the incident: ‘I was handed a cup by flight attendants. Bad enough? No, crew then escorted me to the restroom (now it’s safe to get out of my seat), shaming me down the aisle while other passengers overlooked.
‘The flight attendants treated me like I had committed a crime, stating they would be filing a report, calling in the hazmat team to clean the entire row (let me mention there was no mess involved) and told me I would need to talk with the pilot after the flight!
‘I guess they would have preferred me to pee in the seat? After all they were the ones that gave me the cups knowing what I was planning to do with it.
‘You would think peeing in a cup on an airplane in front my family and strangers, would be the worst part of this story. But the way I was treated by the flight attendants afterwards was worse.
‘They were absolutely horrible to use the rest of the flight! And to top it all off, once on our final descent… a gentlemen got up from first class (yes the seat belt sign was on, and the plane was flipping tilted) walked right by a smiling flight attendant and entered the bathroom.’
