Today, I got yelled at by a man for not opening my store 10-15 minutes before the scheduled opening time, which made his 84-year-old wife shit her pants waiting to get in. It didn't matter when I explained I had no way to know she needed to use the restroom. FML

In the time they spent standing outside your shop, they probably could have found a bathroom. Not your fault, especially since you didn't know and you weren't supposed to be open anyway. I do feel bad for the lady though.

Agreed! My 84-year old father has many health problems. It's in many ways like dealing with a little kid. Make sure they have their hat and mittens, their fly is zipped and they used the toilet before you leave the house.

I feel bad for the old lady, grannies often can't hold it and every bathroom break ends up being a desperate race to the porcelain. But like you said, you had no way to know she needed to go. And even if you did, many stores have really strict policies against having non-employees in the building outside of normal operating hours. Especially if you are part of a big corporate chain of stores, you can actually be fired for opening early. So I get why the old man was frustrated, but FYL because you didn't deserve to have that taken out on you.

Uhhhhh. When you have trouble holding it you get a thicker skin for going behind some bushes. Her husband was right there to keep watch. If its someplace without said bushes, then the chance of another store being open somewhere else increases.
