When the character has to take a bath inside a barrel or small oil drum that is usually outdoors and heated over a fire underneath. This is typically seen in poor rural environments out in the country.

Outdoor Bath Peeping is another thing that is generally guaranteed. This is the only time a bathtub can be outside without it being considered an Awkwardly-Placed Bathtub.
