We're excited to continue our GoGirl Story Series! We're calling all you lovely ladies to share your GoGirl stories with us: times when you needed us, thought of us, or used us. Email your GoGirl Story to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will post a new story each week. Today Jolly Rogers from Texas shares her GoGirl story:
I work on the rigs on a crew of men. I have for the last 15 years, and the bathroom situation is... less than to be desired. We were drilling up by Fort Mac in Alberta and I went to the outdoor store there to pick up some warmer clothing when I came across your product. It sounds silly that that little chunk of silicone could be a life-changer but it totally is! No more yoga-like poses balancing over the disgusting rig porta-potty, no more stripping out of my coveralls and 3 layers of pants to hang my butt out in -50C temperatures no more 20 minute pee breaks that makes the guys make fun of me but it takes a lot of freakin time to get that many layers of clothes off to just go to the bathroom. I just ordered some more so I can keep one in my truck, rigbag and locker. I love working in the oilpatch, love my crew and you have managed to put me on more equal turf! And yes, we can ALL write our names in the snow now, together as a crew :)
Thanks so much for sharing your story! I'm so glad to hear that GoGirl has made things easier for you with the all-male-but-you crew on the oilpatch!
