While waiting in the security line he had a strong bladder spasm and a large release of urine into the diaper. After he emerged from the scanner the TSA officer (a female) asked if he was carrying liquids in his clothing. He explained his condition and what had happened. In the past, it was embarrassing enough for him to just tell a TSA employee that I was wearing an adult incontinence garment but now he was also announcing that he had wet himself.) She called over to another (male) officer (the boss, I guess) and explained the situation to him out loud in front of everyone else still going through the line. The problem was he did not understand what an “incontinence product” was when she told him. Myself, DH [the author’s husband], and the female TSA employee tried explaining a few times before the woman finally just shouted ” HE IS WEARING A DIAPER” which caused pretty much everyone to turn and stare at us (smaller airport so not that many people). The TSA officer then snickered which was almost enough for me to go off but I really didn’t want to make an even bigger scene then there already was.
We were taken through an office area into a room in the back. After waiting a couple of minutes 4 new TSA officers (one of which went to college with DH but dropped out his freshman year- still embarrassing to know someone in a situation like this though) came in and one asked DH if he had any liquids in his pants. By now we were both getting quite annoyed with being asked the same question over and over and he replied that he was wearing a diaper and that he had pi—d in it while waiting in their ***** line. Probably wasn’t the best idea for him to get that mad but at that point he didn’t even care about people knowing he had a medical condition and we just wanted to get out of their [sic].
