Slater Can Be ‘Pee Shy’, If You Were, Would You Admit It?
We learned this morning via the trivia challenge was that most people hate public restrooms. I mean, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go; however, the cleanliness factor, plus other people just makes for a "crappy" situation.
So I say to the female caller this morning, "Do women get pee shy?" For those of you who have never heard of this, see below.
Paruresis, also known as shy bladder syndrome, is a type of phobia in which a person is unable to urinate in the real or imaginary presence of others, such as in a public restroom.
So the female caller and Marjo agree that they do not suffer from this currently nor have they ever.
As for myself, when I was around 20 years old, I had to pee so bad that a co-worker of mine had to pull over in a parking lot to let me out to pee...and then said "I gotta go, too, I'll join ya." So he is standing next to me peeing freely and I can't go all of the sudden. "What's the matter, got stage fright?" he said.
I was mortified and embarrassed. Why couldn't I pee? Do you how hard it is telling your buddy you can't pee because you "scared". What was that all about? BUT, I do have the stones to admit it, ON THE AIR, mind you.
I can absolutely use a public restroom if I have to, there just can't be anyone in the urinal next to me, I have to have a least 3 empty ones beside me.
An estimated 20 million people in the U.S. are pee shy. Marjo says "It's very on-brand for me to have this issue".
