(Insider)   Apparently wealthy people are getting botox injected into their bladders so they can hold it while sitting in traffic on the drive to the Hamptons. At least according to a New York City urologist   (insider.com) divider line

Good luck? 🤷‍♂

The doctor himself can relate. "I can't tell you how many arguments I personally get into - I've lost three friends because I'm the driver and refuse to stop for them," said Shusterman. "There's just no place to stop."

Sounds like three people dropped the asshole from their friend group.

These are not the rich.  The rich take helicopter to the Hamptons and the poors complain about the 15 seconds of noise whenever they pass over.   Nextdoor app around here is hilarious.   Between that, every noise being a gunshot and the constant someone looked at my house funny it's endless enjoyment for me.

The Botox works like a charm. My mother was having bladder control issues due to age and three fat babies using her bladder like a speed bag a few decades ago. She gets the Botox injections and is dry all day and during the night, too, if she gets up to pee once during the night. It's surprising that there's no simple surgical fix, but apparently not.

Last two years there's been articles ahead of the summer season about how the septic systems in the Hamptons are all failing from overuse and being old (and undersized). All the people fleeing the greater NYC area during the pandemic put them over the edge.. So enjoy paralysis-peeing in your yards and relaxing near poop-water, I guess.

I just found out you can get Botox for your balls to get all the wrinkles out.

Pretty nuts, right?

Does that actually work?  I hate to tell people this, but I don't think my internal organs work as well as they used to.  I'll talk to my doctor about it - not gonna ask for any botox though and if she recommends it I'll probably want a second opinion.

I doubt any reputable doctor would prescribe that, but then again I am NOT a doctor.  WTF do I know?  I'm going to hold out for the good snake oil.

Without the Botox she wakes up wet. She's elderly and can't wake up quickly enough or frequently enough to prevent accidents. The Botox restores control to her, and that IS a big farking deal.

If you're stopping 4+ times driving one-way, and each pull-off, walk to the rest area, walk back from the rest area, pull-back-on is taking around 15-minutes each, it would take you just as long to take the LIRR train.

They have toilets.  You can piss to your own delight without botoxing your bladder.

You ride 100 miles in an afternoon??? Crazy.  Most of the traffic is either in the city or way out on the island when it's just a few roads.   It's not a ny thing it's a weekend thing for popular areas.

Try driving into the outer banks on a Saturday and you wait hours for that last bridge, same with the jersey shore at check-in time or any other popular location.

Personally i would avoid the traffic and do it in 2 hours the night before or later in the day.  Much simpler than having bladder injections whenever I want to spend a weekend away

So you can ride 100 miles to Botox your balls, but would you ride 100 more?

(I'm actually kinda mad at myself for thinking this is funny and also for having that damn song in my head now. Sorry about that. :)

Yes, but if you took the train, you would have to be in the same physical space as those people.

Not exactly.  LIRR runs a bunch of 'express' trains out on Fridays and back on Sundays.

They're ~30 minutes faster than the regular service and, after Jamaica, doesn't stop until Gatsby Land.

Gatsby was North Shore (West Egg was probably the Great Neck area and East Egg was Manhasset).  Back then, the Hamptons were still little more than potato farms.

I've been driving to the Hamptons from Jersey since the 70s, I know exactly where to piss while knocking the little jockeys off the rich people's lawns. My 86-year-old mother lives out in East Hampton and when I bring my dogs to visit we go to the beach in front of Ira Rennert's huge mansion so they can piss and crap.

Article: People are being treated for incontinence and enlarged prostates.
Headline: People are electing to have surgery to avoid toilet breaks while driving to the Hamptons.

It's not quite the same.
