I mentioned yesterday about using my cell phone while sitting in the stall. I don't do that. Well, unless I'm at home and talking to my mom/sister/daughter/sons/brother/friend and I'm in my OWN bathroom. And that is rare. Most of the time they don't even know it because I won't flush. My brother always knows it because it is the *reason* I call him.
So what do you think is good public restroom etiquette? I don't think people should answer their cell phones, personally. I don't want to be sitting in the stall next to you while you talk to your husband about picking up the kids or what's for dinner. And I really don't want to listen to teenagers yak to their friends about what EXACTLY they are doing at that EXACT moment. Ew. Okay. I know I do it with my brother. That's different...and it's not PUBLIC.
I'm all about double standards, people. Get over it.
And while we are on this topic, do you ever look down in to the next stall at the person's shoes? I'm always afraid someone is going to do that to me and then spot me *outside* the restroom and make a strange face my way. Especially if I'm having a lactose interolerant moment. And since you know I choose the middle stalls there is always the chance TWO people are looking at my shoes. And they probably both have cell phones. And they are probably texting each other about my lactose intolerance. If I hear giggles at the same time I'm staying in there until the place is near quittin' time.
So tell me. What public restroom etiquette rules would you like to see put in place or enforced? Don't be shy. Leave me a comment!
