    Twitter saves man having poo on Virgin Trains who ran out of loo roll

    Ollie McAteer for 6 Jan 2015 5:02 pm

    Nightmarish scenes (Picture: Getty) We’ve all been there.
    But our fist instinct isn’t to tell the world about it.
    Adam was relieving himself on a Virgin Trains toilet when a nightmarish predicament crept up on him – no loo roll.
    But instead of embracing the shuffle-of-shame to the nearest cubicle, he tweeted Richard Branson’s rail firm.
    I've just had a reasonably large poo and there is no toilet roll left on the @virgintrains 19.30 train from Euston to Glasgow pls send help.

    And the response was unexpected.
    @AdamPlaysYT Which coach, Adam? ^MW

    Adam, from Lancaster, had to get off the toilet in order to check the carriage number.
    @VirginTrains J thank you

    The teen said he saw a guy ‘looking quite worried in a full black suit carrying toilet roll’.
    He explained: ‘After the awkward exchange and smiles, I grabbed it off him and finished what I started.
    ‘Afterwards I just sort of left the loo roll on the side and I presume he went in after the smell cleared and attached it properly to the dispenser!’
    @AdamPlaysYT Maybe bring some loo roll. Just in case… ^CB

    I always check for rolls (quantity) before conducting business.

      This is the first thing I do as well. Not even going to unbuckle till I make sure there is enough to finish. Good for the kid though, this has to be the first account of twitter being useful in my opinion.
