Public Restrooms

This has always always been a pet peeve of mine, but it wasn’t until today that I realized just how much I HATE using public restrooms.

It’s not because of a sanitation issue (I can squat with the best of them), but I have a REAL problem “going” when there’s someone else in the restroom - even if they’re 4-5 stalls down. Today, I actually stood in the stall at work for 10 minutes waiting for the woman in the next stall to finish her business. While waiting, I had to listen to her opening/fiddling with her “feminine” products, etc., which I didn’t appreciate. Hey, I know I’m a woman too, but there’s some things I don’t wanna know about my co-workers, the scheduling of their “cycles” being foremost on that list. (Of course, I’m one of the only women I know who closes her eyes whenever a tampax commercial comes on the tv, but that’s another thread)

Anyway, I’ve always had problems with public restrooms for this reason. I know men don’t have this problem, they’ll whip it and handle their business anytime, ANYWHERE. But are there any other women with this problem. I’d like to know that I’m not crazy, or, that’ I’m not the ONLY crazy one.

I’m right there with you, Citygirl. Even at work, I wait until the other person is out of the room. I’ve always wondered if people notice that as soon as they open the door (no matter how long they lingered washing their hands), I finally start to pee.

People who talk to each other while doing their dirty sinful business freak me out. I can’t imagine taking a poop and gabbing about office gossip in the girl pissing in the next stall.

But for some more reading from others who do…
