Is This Person Wrong for Frequently Using the Bathroom on a Flight? Here’s What Folks Said.

Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go, right?

Still, I can see why it would be annoying to passengers on a plane if someone was constantly climbing over them to go to the restroom.

But did this person act like an a**hole?

Read their story below and see what you think.

AITA for using the bathroom frequently on the flight?

“Recently I flew home for the holidays. The flight was three hours long.

I read that you dehydrate twice as fast on a plane as you do elsewhere, so I packed two 40oz water bottles and planned to drink both of them over the course of the flight (should note I’m a pretty big person and an athlete). I booked a middle seat because I’m on a budget and I also don’t particularly care about the aisle/window and I used the bathroom four times over the course of the flight.

Each time, the person sitting on the aisle got progressively annoyed. She was sleeping and I woke her up each time. She would sigh, groan, roll her eyes, etc whenever I got up. When I used the bathroom for the third time, she asked me if I could try to hold it for the remainder of the flight so she could sleep. (I should mention it was 4pm and there was no time change involved.)

I didn’t take her request too seriously and continued to drink water. When I got up for the fourth time, she told me I was rude for not following her request. I told her it was either that, dehydrate, or wet myself and going to the bathroom seemed like the best option. She told me no one needs to drink enough to pee four times in less than three hours unless they have a bladder issue.

She then asked me if I had a bladder issue and I said no, not that that’s your business. I asked if she wanted to switch seats so I didn’t have to climb over her, but she refused. She kept pressing me and I suggested that we flag down a flight attendant because I didn’t feel comfortable resolving this on my own. The flight attendant sided with me, but at home my family had some disagreements.

Some said I did nothing wrong, and that I have the right to drink water and I’m not breaking rules, but others said it was discourteous to drink that much water during s flight and that I should be able to hold it, especially if the person on the aisle is sleeping.

So I’m wondering if the people of Reddit think I’m TA or not?”

Now let’s see how Reddit users reacted.

This person said they’re an a**hole and a three-hour flight wouldn’t harm them because of dehydration.

And this Reddit user said this is ridiculous and they should have gotten an aisle seat.

Another Reddit user said either get the aisle seat or wear a pair of Depends!
