What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you in a public bathroom?

Using a public bathroom can be anxiety-inducing for many people. The possible disarray of the stalls is one problem, then there's the issue with dirty soap dispensers and broken taps. Anything can happen. 

If your name is Joe Grabinski, then you up the ante by taking your half-full cup of Pepsi into the bathroom stall with you.

Why would anyone in their right mind take drinks into a public bathroom? Well, if Joe hadn't done this then the world would not have had this delightful Twitter thread. 

Joe got himself into quite the conundrum here. How will he walk out and look the occupant of the other stall in the eye after this? Who will clean up the spill? And will Joe now have to buy two new drinks: one to replace his, and one to apologise to the mystery man next to him?

Joe received a lot of sympathy from people who had been in similar predicaments before.

But why are there so many people who are willing to admit that they risked embarrassment by taking food into bathroom stalls with them?
