Adam Greenwood of Lancaster, England found himself in a bit of a sticky situation. While riding a Virgin train from London to Glasgow, Greenwood felt the urge to use the onboard restroom. The problem came once he realized he had no toilet paper.

It’s not a dire a situation, but it is certainly a bit of a laughable embarrassment to deal with. That’s why Greenwood took to Twitter to inform the public of his situation. From Buzzfeed:

As soon as I saw the was no paper I instantly thought, let’s tweet about it and make people laugh. There were a few small laughs on Twitter but nothing more.

Luckily the right people were paying attention and Virgin Trains official account soon started to ask questions, seeking to help Greenwood out of his situation.

It wasn’t long after that wheels were put in motion to save Greenwood’s sphinx from disaster:

I tweeted back with the carriage number and I shortly after I saw a guy looking quite worried in a full black suit carrying toilet roll, after the awkward exchange and smiles I grabbed it off him and finished what I started!

This is a much better experience than the time I flew British Airways and got caught in some turbulence mid-squeeze. There was no friendly smile or courtesy then, just a lot of knocking and a frantic teen attempting to pinch one off without being thrown into the ceiling. A good toilet experience is an important thing.
