Restroom

Ever walk into the wrong restroom? And I don't mean one of these combo ones today. I mean a Men's or Women's restroom. I have a couple of times. The last time was a while ago, when we were in San Francisco. The gal I met inside told me I was in the wrong room, and I informed her that SHE was mistaken, that she was 'lost'. All to no avail. I walked out fast and laughing! Luckily, the 'sting' lasted only 30 seconds or so, and then it was in my rear view mirror. These days, it takes a lot to embarrass me. Walking into the wrong restroom pales in comparison to other situations I might get myself into during my day.

  1. I can tell you that I also had a kind of experience like that. Fortunately the toilet "for boys" was empty!Thanks God!
    Anyway I realized my mistake in the second I was through...

  2. An easy mistake to make in some places. Fun post.

  3. I used to be a teacher in highschool and we had what was called, "Hall Duty" and to keep kids from smoking pot in the restrooms, we had to walk into them during our hall duty patrols. I have walked into the girls restroom and found it littered with used Kotex and toilet paper on the floor and toilets not flushed.

    The boys were littered with graffiti about who was easy to lay and things that interest boys. The dirtiest was the girl's without any doubts.

  6. Years ago, I did it on purpose once or twice when I was at meeting spaces that had huge men's rooms and teeny tiny women's rooms. A couple of times I took over the empty men's room while a line a block long snaked outside the woment's.

  9. That's one thing I've never done. (Although, I've had a few close calls.)

  10. I've never intentionally walked into the wrong restroom. I've intentionally walked into them a few times (when the building is deserted!!!).

    Last year I took a picture inside a public restroom (nobody else was in there). Half the commenters thought my subject was interesting the other half wanted me arrested.

  11. Even at age 69, things like that still embarrass me... I haven't done that in a very long time--but I check carefully before walking into a restroom somewhere. ha

  12. A decade or so ago, I was at a fancy gala at a fancy hotel and became absorbed in a conversation and found myself turning into the ladies room. I am not sure who was shocked more, the ladies powdering their faces or me! Regrettably, I did this in front of numerous people I know, so I was reminded of my mistake often by helpful friends.

  14. My question is...what's that hanging on the door knob? Looks like a spatula or something you spread something with.

  15. Yeah, I remember one time being on a very quick break from a meeting and I ran down the hall at 90 miles an hour, burst through a door, straight into a stall. Just as that sigh of relief came over me I looked down at the floor and saw a pair of brown wingtips facing in the opposite direction! The guy exited his stall before I did. I was in such a hurry to get back to my meeting (it had been taken just to accommodate my urgency and there was a roomful of people waiting) that I couldn't wait any longer so I left the stall, walked right up beside him at the adjacent sink, and said, "Hi, how you doing today?" He was speechless and just stood there in disbelief as I carried on a one-sided conversation with him, washed and dried my hands, turned and waved flirtaciously and said, "See you later, good lookin'!"
