She should have had friends in higher places.

A woman who admitted to using the men's room at a Fargo, North Dakota, concert venue where country superstar Garth Brooks was playing over the weekend said she was unfairly booted because of her brazen bathroom etiquette.

Samantha Bergh told NBC affiliate KVLY that she only commandeered a commode in a FargoDome men's restroom because she was desperate.

"The women's line was a good 100-people long," she said Monday. "It was insanely long and there was no wait for the men's, so I just went into the men's."

But her potty behavior didn't sit well with management. A security guard and Fargo police escorted her and her husband out of the arena, Bergh said.

FargoDome staff normally tell people to walk around the venue for bathrooms with shorter lines. A person normally wouldn't be kicked out of a concert just for using the wrong gender's restroom — unless they were also acting inebriated or unruly, KVLY reported.

"I hadn't even been drinking," Bergh claimed. "I wasn't drunken belligerent, rude or anything like that."

Venue management did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday from NBC News.

Bergh told KVLY that she wishes she didn't have to miss out on Brooks' concert just for using the wrong room.

"I'll never get that back," she said of the incident. "Nothing will ever give me that experience back."
