Where's the most embarrasing place you've thrown up?

I threw up on the bus on the way to work this morning. I'm mortified! Luckily I had a carrier bag in my pocket and I was able to throw up into that, but there was loads of it and it stank and I'm sure everyone was staring at me. Then I had to carry the horrible stuff with me when I got off the bus.

I can't be alone, so where is the most embarrasing place you've thrown up?

Basically in every corner of my classroom, bin, sink, cupboard, poor little kids got to the stage where they didn't even notice "Miss" not feeling too good. Made for speedy & interesting labour as still hg to the end and wretching so violently poor DD2 came out with a massive whoosh as I threw up all over hospital blinds, floor, down back of the bed! Often think of poor cleaning lady who went into that room after my carnage!

I'm a bus driver in London and at 18 weeks I was driving a packed bus, full of commuters across Waterloo bridge, to Waterloo station, when I suddenly threw up all over myself, the steering wheel, dash etc! With people standing next to me!
I managed to pull the bus into the last stop at the station jumped out and threw up a few times in the kerb. Not one person on my bus asked if I was ok. sad

I used to have to walk along a stretch of street that was usually littered with syringes, bottles, pools of puke, pools that were probably pee, and the odd sleeping drunk on my way to work. One hot morning the stench overwhelmed me and I upchucked in full view of a busload of commuters stopped at a traffic light. They probably thought I was one of the street people having a rough morning.

Full sugar coke helped here too.

And puked all through labour each time. Had blanked that out for some reason.

Ooh this takes me back, I feel quite nostalgic.

I was on a bus replacement service rather than the usual train, because of rain/flooding, and foolishly read the metro. After a while the lurching, stopping and starting and overwhelming wet dog smell emanating from the passengers got to me and I thought I'd best get off.

Then I did a very clever thing. I rolled the metro into a neat cone which I could tidily vomit into and throw away when I found a bin. Sadly the bottom of said neat cone was open and the vomit trickled down my coat. I also wet myself copiously and had to squelch home.

Would do it again though if there was a baby at the end of it!

Not exactly unusual but dh find it funny (just like I find snipping his balls of with blunt scissors funny really)

Dd1 (2.11) occasionally uses the potty to poo. Every time I have to clean it I end up throwing up all over the bathroom floor then cleaning that up too. When she poos in the toilet we have no problems, I keep hiding her potty and she keeps finding it sad

On Bennetts Hill in the centre of Birmingham on a Tuesday morning in the rush hour! The shame. I can't walk past the spot without wincing.

Christmas time, suffering from HG, dragged myself out Christmas shopping while feeling awful, it was my first HG pregnancy so I didn't know the 'tricks of the trade' then so downed a innocent smoothie before I went out to settle my stomach. Big mistake. Queuing in marks an sparks packed with christmas shoppers, the smoothie unexpectedly made a reappearance, thankfully I had a plastic bag with me just incase . I still cringe now, people were looking at me as if I was some pisshead, while I was trying to explain I was pregnant between heaves.

at the dentist's. I did warn him that I was very sick in pregnancy and that if he put the instruments any where near the back of my mouth I would likely vom but he clearly didn't pay attention.
Otherwise I've vomited almost everywhere. I used to carry plastic bags around for times when there wasn't anywhere else.

These have made me laugh out loud - they are genius..the puking in a wheelchair bound man's hoody, the falling into a bin...I have been feeling so sorry for myself being sick. At Home. In my Bathroom. In a clean toilet. Now I know it could be MUCH worse. I had to hold in a large puke for a 30 min taxi ride while listening to a work colleague earlier this week but managed to hold it in till through my front door. Oh and when I was not pregnant I puked from a big night out into a leather glove when I was old enough to know better. Shame. Your stories are gold dust though. I think I am going to travel with one of those plastic bags they give you for airport security.

I once threw up back into my bowl of porridge in the morning. It looked the same coming out than going in- it was disgusting! DH saw it and just said 'err... do you think you might be pregnant?' and I was! Put me off porridge for about 2 years. I threw up a whole Dominos pizza when I went into labour with DC1 6 years ago- haven't had one since!
