Go wee, wee, wee all the way home!

If you find yourself in Holland, ride a train and keep an eye out for a “wee bag.” That’s what they call  the emergency plastic bags that passengers can urinate in if they need to.

The problem to this point has been that Dutch commuter trains don’t have toilets. And even though the trains usually stop every ten minutes or so at different stations, what if there’s a mechanical failure?

There’s only one problem: People are too chicken to use the wee bags!
“Are you serious?” said one passenger.
“No, no way, I just can't see myself ‘going’ in that. For a man it may be easier, for a woman that's just impossible.”
