A woman is yelling at her husband because he let the dogs out.

Husband: I'm sorry. I was having bathroom distress, and I didn't know the dogs got out.

What does "bathroom distress" mean?

    He was having problems with his personal waste disposal system. :) (He had to go to the loo NOW -- or he was already there and having some difficulties.)

    It could be anything that causes distress -- diarrhea/diarrhoea or constipation, or just the normal urge striking now and you have to hurry.

    But if I were picking a distress, diarrhea/diarrhoea might be at the top of the list.
