Accidents : no one understands the urgency

I have UC and I try to plan my outings knowing where the restrooms are at all times. I was at Sam's club checking out when a wave of pain hit me in my gut. I’ve had this feeling many times and I have exactly 4 minutes to get to a restroom. Needless to say, I ended up calling a family member to bring me clean clothes and baby wipes because the bathroom was full and there were no close options.
I’ve had this feeling ( the extreme urge to void my bowels) while driving and I try to get to the closest restroom & now I keep a change of clothes in my car : just in case.
