    In that kind of situation you've got to stare at them straight in the eye with a slight menace and hold their gaze.
    You've got to let a donkey know who's the boss.

    Mostly you are too busy feeling ill and doing what needs done .......

    PS. Hubby reminds me about the Roraima incident from time to time I think it is deeply embeded in his memory too :laugh:

    Had a some really miserable nights sleeping out with cr@p gear in my younger years, I seem to have erased the detailed memories from my brain thankfully.

    I do remember bivying in a 'haunted' forest with friends, none of us slept well, there was thunder and lightning (to set the mood), screaming (deer/fox/maniac?), rustling, snapping twigs, the sound of a banjo (just kidding).

    Reminds me of a holiday with a girlfriend in my youth, dodgy food, too much drink and other stuff
    Doesn't affect me too much, seem to pick up any bug going around but have a stomach of steel to counter that

    She didn't
    Very similar experience only in a hotel room and she was wearing a G-string, she bent under the bed to retrieve her flip flops
    I guess her arse was pretty symmetrical a it Bifurcated into 2 streams

    One of those can't look, but can't not look and wonder how is that possible

    I remember a night in a pension in Santiago de Compostela (walls as thin as paper) when we were engaged. We'd both eaten some "fermented" cheese and were taking it in turns to vomit down the loo - the whole establishment must have known what was going on. Stale, flat, warm Coke Cola is a great emetic .....

    While one time in Venice years back I was out the back of a canal bus having a smoke & felt a bit funny in the tummy, while I thought I was just going to ease one out quietly while standing I was glad that I was wearing long johns to stop what came out from running down my legs & onto the floor. I waddled off the boat at the next stop to some funny looks from other passengers. :(

    Learning not to follow through - an important skill for travellers

    Learning not to spend two weeks drunk day & night on cheap red wine at carnival is another skill for some :angelic:

    Very true, especially when you only packed one spare pair of undies (or worse none).
    Happened on my first day of a 5 day trip, made a detour to a public toilet but didn't quite make it.

    This is not a worst night out story but is pretty gross. When I was thirteen I went on a school cruise. We docked at Malaga and took a coach journey inland to visit Granada and the Alhambra (which was fantastic). The coach trip out was ok because it was cool in the morning but the trip back in the afternoon was stultifyingly hot in a coach with no air conditioning plus the road was pretty twisty. Not surprisingly, some boys felt quite sick. However there was only one large communal sick sack at the front of the coach. You had to rush up to front and vomit into a large paper sack. Needless to say, it wasn’t up to the job and after a while the bottom got soaked and started to split leaking the contents onto the floor of the coach. Going up and down hills, there was a river of puke going up and down the floor of the coach. You had to keep you feet clear of the floor so your shoes didn’t get covered :hungover:

    I am slightly concerned about someone stumbling upon this forum for the first time and "worst night out" is the first thread they read
