Stall etiquette.

That awkward moment where you're in a bathroom with three stalls so you go to one of the outer stalls, and the next person who comes in doesn't leave an empty stall between the two of you, but goes to the stall right next to yours.  The middle stall.  Why not leave at least an air of privacy in a public bathroom?  Do you feel the need to connect with the woman who is (peeing, pooping, or in my case puking)?  Or maybe this is just something I figured would be normal in my head, to leave as much space as possible between you and the other person, as I have somewhat of a hatred for the lack of privacy in public restrooms (I know, key word being public.)

Also, as I was getting my hair done a couple of weeks ago (my awesome birthday present!) the other ladies and myself somehow got on the subject of mothers who never taught their daughters to wipe front to back.  I can't remember if there was ever a time I didn't know this, but to a couple of the other girls there it was news to them up until a few years ago.  But when you think about it, it makes sense.  If you don't know there is a certain way to do it, you just do it the less awkward way.  It was sort of a funny conversation between some strangers in a salon, and yet we didn't feel weird or shy about it at all.  It was actually pretty great.

Anyway, that is my thought for the day, nothing to deep or dramatic or emotional, because I don't feel like it.

Thoughts?  Questions?  Well, avid followers, please feel free to just leave a comment!

  1. I hate when people don't leave a stall buffer.
    I remember being shocked at a friend in elementary school who wiped back to front. Spreading yucky germs! I told my mom. I wonder if she ever mentioned it to that girl's mom, now that I think about it....
