Works very well for UK English as well (although we would usually change "bathroom" for "toilet" or "loo", but "bathroom" would be understood nonetheless)"I really have to go to the bathroom" or just "I really have to go." You'll be understood. (This is in the U.S., of course.) There are so many more ways of saying this, but we're cautioned on this forum not to provide lists.
You could also say "I'm dying to go", or "I need to go" (for either activity).Hi,
How do we name the feeling right before we go poo and go pee pee? For example, if I have kept the urine or poo for a long time ,but I can't get a chance to release. Dow do we describe the feeling? I'm too what?
Thanks in advance.
I've never realized, until now, that BrE had so many similarities with describing such things compared with the AmE versions of laughing.A couple more.
I'm peeing myself (this is specific to urine, obviously) /I'm dying to go to the loo (this could refer to either urine or poo) .
These are very informal, for use with family and friends only, not when you're in polite society.
Cross-posted with stoggler, sorry.
I'm really not sure that "busting a gut" has anything to do with peeing or needing the toilet in any way, regardless of what was said above. Just sounds odd to me.I've never realized, until now, that BrE had so many similarities with describing such things compared with the AmE versions of laughing.
Both, "busting a gut" and "peeing myself" are commonly used to express experiencing bouts of intense laughter.
