Ok so - I feel the need to blog, and I do have a couple of things on the back burner, but they're not quite ready to go yet.
So today I wanted to share with you an experience I had...
I went to an area library today and was meandering around. I decided that I needed to use the restroom so I went to the closest one in which there was an balding person of average height in front of me, kind of looking at the women's room door/sign. I assumed this was a man who I guess was trying to figure out what side he should go in as for some people, this is a very difficult decision to make.
After quickly opening the door and looking into the bathroom, he decided that was the bathroom to use and the door closed behind him.
HE WENT INTO THE WOMEN'S ROOM.
I didn't know what to do!
Do I go in and say, "Uhmmm...I'm not sure if you noticed the sign that you were staring directly at before coming in here, but this is the ladies room."
Or would I say something along the lines of, "Doesn't the lack of urinals in this room tip you off that you might be in the wrong place?"
Should I run and tell someone?? Do I just go in and pretend he's not in there?!
I decided to just turn around and duck behind the shelves of DVDs and stalked bathroom, because well...maybe it WASN'T man, maybe it was a woman with an unfortunate hair condition. I had to know, so I waited.
The door opened, and I looked...
Yup, it was a man. And adult middle aged man, who then went over to the fish tank yo chat with some kid (who I assume he was with).
Does this happen???? Does this for real happen??
It did happen once to me when I attended a beer and wing festival a couple of years ago. Anything that serves an unlimited number of beer and wings at a nominal fee will result in a men's bathroom line that is actually far longer than the women's. Of course we were drunk, so we thought it was funny then.
This time? I thought it was totally bizarre.
So, what would you have done?? Go ahead and share any funny public restroom stories that you have!
