Public Washrooms

Posted on Mon, Nov 29, 2010 at 2:45 PM

I hate public washrooms. Call it a phobia of mine. I just can't fucking stand them. I literally gag when I walk into one but what can you do when you have no other option.

Correct me if I am wrong but can't we expect a degree of privacy even when using a public washroom? I am not there to have a conversation with someone I casually ran into on my way to the stalls, apply a full face of make up, or do my hair... I am there to take care of nature's business.

Anyway I can go on and on but this bitch is about my recent experience at a Halifax restaraunt. I'm in the washroom. There are several stalls. At least 5. I appear to be the only person in the washroom.

I am just about to turn around to close the door to my stall when this woman barges IN to my stall. She said she needed some toliet paper to take back to her table so her mother could check her blood sugar. I kid you not.

What was wrong with the toilet paper in the 4 other EMPTY stalls or the paper towel there to dry hands? How is barging into someone's stall socially acceptable? Not to mention she almost scared the shit out of me... literally.

I swear to God I may invest in some Depends... —Disgust-a-mundo
