I’m a stall guy with a a large backpack, overweight, with a belt buckle, and a bashful Sphincter. Doh! (-_-)
I can pee just fine with people around me, but I can’t poop if anyone else in in the bathroom that I know. Or if I walked in with them. Or if I made eye contact with them before I entered the stall. Or if I recognize the voice as I’m sitting in the stall and they just entered. It’s a PAIN in the ass, and I hate myself for it, because if I’ve got 5 mins to go before I gotta get to my next class and someone walks in- it’s just a killer- cuz now I’ve got to wait for them to leave.
But I’ve gotten better- as a Kid I NEVER used public bathrooms- I’d always hold it until I got home, to the point of where this would cause severe pain and cramping. So I view this as progress. But if I have to pee- it’s just easier to use the Stalls, and I’ll always do it unless there’s a handicapped person there, and they need the stall.
