Story from 10,000 Feet Up in the Air

Going back to DC I ended up waiting in line for a while to the restroom, and I came to think of something that happened to me a few years ago between Rome and Stockholm. I can’t remember in what direction I was flying but it was either with Sterling Airlines or with Ryan Air. I had waited until last minute with going to the restroom and felt like it was close to an emergency. However, the line was long and slow, and it got to the point where I thought I might not make it. Then, when I was second in line, the captain tells everyone that we are going through some heavy turbulence and that everyone had put on the seatbelts. I couldn’t feel anything, but the airhostess told all of us in line for the restroom to go back to our seats and so I had not choice. I still couldn’t feel turbulence but all of a sudden, the captain comes out of the cockpit and goes into the toilet. And upon returning into the cockpit, sure enough, the seatbelt sign was turned off again!
