Happened with me at JFK once when I was getting back from vacation, spent $200 in taxis. Oh and they forgot to send one of my bags to the final destination. Fun time!

It's no wonder the WSJ ranked them dead last of US carriers in 2015

Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo.

Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
