    Not sure when calpol became a koi branded product, but the bottle currently on eBay for £510 Is ridiculous. Yes, people are bidding on it.

    Some folk should be ashamed of themselves.

    It was like light switch. I went dizzy in seconds. And started to feel hot.
    I managed to get to the safe bay. Thumbed the pilot that deck was clear.
    Next minute I am spewing every where and collapsed. I woke up in the sick bay.
    Tempreture through the roof.
    They could nt get me off. Weather came in real bad.
    So I was stuck for a week on the FPSO.
    We found out 5 days later after tests on the HSE guy. It was swine flu.
    It took me 1 month to recover. The weight just dropped off me.
    I could nt hold anything in. Rear end and spewing. I was a mess.

    And then you rose from bed, killed all the terrorists holding the skyscraper to ransom and won the heart of the leading actress

    Had similar but not swine flu. Was working late shift had a chilli con carne and spent the rest of shift not feeling right. Finished shift and decided to head home for a clear out in comfort rather than cold toilets at work. As i travelled home the urge to go became stronger made it home straight to toilet my world fell out me and then started to feel queasy. S lent over basin and emptied from top end as I was doing this the bottom end went again. Obviously not perched on toilet it went all over me and floor. Finally calmed everything down and decided to have shower where i again passed from bottom end. Sat in shower for 10 minutes and then cleared everything up. Felt really bad went to bed and slept solidly for 36 hours only woke up when a mate called round because i hadn't gone to work. Spent next week in bed drinking water which 2 minutes after drinking passed through bum as still cold water. Lost a stone in a week and eventually went back to work, complained about food and was told someone else had complained but no one else, so it wasn't their fault. Sandwiches was the order of the day for the last 10 years of work.
    When I’m dead I hope my Mrs doesn’t sell my fishing gear for what I told her they cost!

    Lucky I was on my own during that time and the embarrassment was not there as such. But when you speak to others after its amazing how many have similar stories. It happens and its not something you have control over at the time. When i told my missus about it she just laughed and said the embarrassment is no greater than having a room of staff all watching your nunu when giving birth

    There was a thread on reddit that went viral recently. A bloke in exactly same situation as you, except he was at work in an office and some of the toilets were closed due to some issue and he had to queue for over 20 minutes. He gets to the front and some bloke comes out of the toilets and just at that moment a pregnant woman barged in and went to go into the toilets, he had no choice but to stop her and tell her he's been queuing for 20 mins and had to go or he'd have dropped his guts all over the office floor.

    Nobody in the office believed his story, he's been hated by everyone since and living a life of hell being known as the bloke who wouldn't allow a desperate pregnant woman to go in front. He was contemplating leaving his job over it.
