Sorry to burst you with so many questions today.

But being 52, the bladder doesn't hold too well these days. Now when I was a sales rep on the road finding a toilet wasn't so hard. But with this darn trailer finding a parking spot at a shopping centre is a bit of an issue.

Ive taken to a water bottle in the back of the trailer hoping the customers don't see me during the equipment swaps.

Got any advice on that one?

I get caught short every couple of days for similar reasons - I've become expert at a quick spray behind any bit of cover that presents itself - haven't been sprung yet but have had some close calls.

Just saying, that in the horse and cart days, apparently it was legal to p155 on the rear of the front left wheel. Someone said that the law is still valid, as is that a policeman must be wearing his cap/hat when booking you. Might be just pubtalk.

true story

One of my previous jobs was selling a product called Oxytrol for overactive bladder. Its a patch that you put on once a day. It works really well only need to pee once a day. Great for long haul flight, truck drivers etc. Bladder gets really full up to 700ml. But the side affects are terrible, feel like crap, dry mouth, tiredness etc.

Vehicle door works well as a barrier (keep it close) & lean over to make out your looking for somth'n lol ,keep legs close as well with feet pointed outwards & pee in to the V at your feet  (i call it the V P not to be confused with the she p ) or bounce off the sill of the vehicle then off the inside of the door panel off to the tyre then noth'n but tarmac . the mower can also be used discreetly as a barrier tho you'll need to be on your knees,just be careful of the hot exhaust while the mowers running. It'd be hard to explain to the nurse what you were doing

Yes Ive done the door one, pretending to look for something in the glove box while hitting the side step.

Theres a public toilet locater app for phones if your working outside your area.  

 I spend lots of time at the beach toilets. I swear I see at least two or three different beachers every day.
