An embarrassed mum-to-be has hit out at the Royal Mail after she peed herself after being refused the loo at one of its delivery offices.
Chelsea Hastie, 23, is due to give birth on Christmas Day and was desperate for the loo as she collected a parcel from a delivery office.
But when she asked if she could use the toilet, Scrooge workers told her it was for Royal Mail staff only and turned her away.
Chelsea, from Newport, Gwent, said: “I was dying for the toilet and when I went to collect my parcel I said, ‘Excuse me, could I use the toilet?’
“The man said: “No”. I explained that I was eight months pregnant, but he didn’t even say sorry.”
Chelsea asked a second worker as she sat outside the office, but was again told “no”.
Chelsea said the pressure of the baby sitting low on her bladder caused her to wet herself on the way home from the Newport city centre delivery office.
“It’s embarrassing. I was crying so much later,” she admitted.
Her dad Desmond Hastie added his daughter’s mean treatment was “disgusting.”
“It’s dreadful, she’s eight months pregnant. She told the worker she was busting.”
A spokeswoman for the Royal Mail said: “We’re very sorry to hear about this customer’s experience.
“We will ensure that we discuss this incident with our colleagues.”
