Watch out for the food vendors at the airport.
“I was preparing to fly home from Hawaii when the hunger kicked in. My options were 1) Starbucks, 2) McDonald’s, and 3) some little healthy food place. I figured that the health food place was the most feasible option and ordered a chicken sandwich. Upon receiving the sandwich, I realized that it was lukewarm and didn’t quite taste right. But I -hungry and foolish- decided to eat it anyway. A few hours later, I was on a redeye home when I was awoken by the sound of my intestines attempting to turn themselves inside out. Luckily, I was on the end seat towards the back, so I had access to the bathroom,” shares YsabelMystic.
“For the next four hours of the flight, I was making trips to and from the bathroom and expelling fluids and chicken sandwiches from both ends. It sucked. But then it got worse. I was to take an hour-long flight back to my town in a tiny plane without a bathroom on a windy day. Before the flight left, I spent as much time in the terminal bathroom trying to remove everything in my digestive system. Unfortunately, by the time I got onto the plane, my intestines were ready for another go. Oh, and the turbulence made the plane feel like a cart on a rickety wooden roller-coaster. I managed not to have a blow-out on the plane, but it was pretty miserable. That was how I learned not to eat chicken sandwiches from obscure “health food” vendors at airports.”
