“I get up to go, and [a] guy kinda beats me in there, in the bathroom. So, I’m waiting and then someone waits behind me, and maybe one other person. The guy comes out of the bathroom, I acknowledge him and I go in. I shut the door,” Lauer said. “And there’s no turbulence by the way. This guy has urinated all over the seat of the toilet.”
And thus the dilemma. “I can’t leave, because now they’re gonna think, ‘Matt Lauer peed all over the seat!'” Lauer said. So he felt he had no choice but to clean up this other guy’s mess.
Me thinks he’s going on national television protesting just a little too hard that “wasn’t me.”
But in any case that’s why you always wear shoes when visiting an airplane lavatory.
