This or That: Period Mishap or Bathroom Trouble?

You’re staying at your boyfriend’s parents’ house for a few days when in town for a wedding. This is your first time meeting them and you’re on your absolute best behavior, you've even been following the separate bedroom rule to a tee! Things seem to be going really well until you start to feel upset to your stomach before bed. The next morning you wake up to a totally embarrassing situation. Would it be worse if . . .

This: As soon as you get out of bed — you see a huge red spot in the middle of the pristine taupe sheets? With all the fuss about the wedding and meeting his folks, you completely forgot you were getting your period.


That: A quick trip to the bathroom to relieve your ailing stomach leads to 45 minutes of desperate plunging? But it’s no use, after the fifth flush the entire toilet overflows leaking on to the hallway carpet.

They’re both terribly embarrassing, but which is worse?
