Women’s Washroom Etiquette
I have a favourite stall in the washroom where I work. Stall #5 – the last stall against the wall. I walk over 100 steps to get to the bathroom so when I get there and some jackass is in my stall it bums me out...but onward I carry on using an inferior stall to get the job done. It doesn’t ruin my life but it is yet another little disappointment in life.
Now here is the thing – if someone is in Stall #4 I will not use Stall #5 b/c there are 2 others available that are not next door neighbours to Stall #4. My rule is never to use a stall right next to someone if at all possible. I don’t like using stall washrooms on a good day and I certainly do not enjoy someone coming into Stall #4 when I am in Stall #5 when they could have used Stalls 1, 2 or 3 for shits sake. Rude.
Am I the only neurotic stall person on earth? Depending on my mood this sort of thing really pisses me off...I don’t want to pee and be distracted by the bozo in the next stall peeing. Or by the shoes they have on. Or if they pee faster or slower than me. I don’t even like ppl LISTENING to me pee. I am still known to run water when I pee depending on the situation. Clearly I am not afforded this option at work though I have considered how funny it would be for someone to come in with all 5 sinks running and 1 person in the can. Ha. Ohh it is the small things that amuse us mutants.
Stay away from me in the can you drones.
