Public Service Announcement

Posted in Uncategorized by noceleryplease on April 18, 2011

Hey world… here’s something one might not think requires ‘splainin…  but apparently it does.

When a public restroom has 5 stalls in it and stall # 5  at the end is occupied, while stalls # 1, 2, 3, and 4 are empty… it is acceptable to come into said restroom and enter stalls #1, 2 or 3 to take care of whatever business you have to do.

Bypassing stalls #1, 2 and 3 and then sitting down in stall # 4?

That’s just weird and creepy, man.

    you KNOW it. No courtesy stall? Weirdness!

    Totally agree. If you think the stall thing is weird consider the whole urinal situation…. I mean when someone skips 8 urinals to stand next to you is just so many shades of wrong….

    Just as long as they don’t try to start up a conversation…….

    It’s only acceptable if there is something wrong with the other stalls, or if ‘remains’ were left by previous occupants. [They shouldn’t be the Cleanup Crew]

    Otherwise, yeah. Courtesy Stall should be a requirement.

    Yeah, what everyone else said. Indeed!

  6. Never thought about it. I guess I would assume the person had some kind of OCD issue, and thus could not avoid keeping a sequence going. I’m not making light of OCD, I promise–I tend to see it more in clinical practice than one might imagine, both patients and providers. So, not creepy, just…interesting. 🙂

    I wouldn’t find this too creepy. I’d just assume there was something wrong with stalls 1, 2 and 3. Now, treadmills at the gym. THAT’s a courtesy thing. You always leave a courtesy treadmill between yourself and other treadmill users during unbusy hours. As the place gets busy, and there is no choice, then you may take a treadmill next to someone.

    Elevators: opposite protocol. If you don’t share an elevator with someone, you’re saying, “Wow, you look like a rapist or something.” Now, if the person really does look suspect, then you employ your acting talents: “Oops, forgot my folder.” Then you race away. Then once the elevator is gone, you turn around and summons another elevator.

    Park benches?
