    When was the last time you had to stand in line to use a restroom?
    (Please indicate your gender too)

    I often see lines outside women's restrooms, never men's restrooms.

    Okay, this may be tmi... but the reason there are lines outside of women's restrooms is because:

    1) Women don't have the luxury of a single swipe in their crotch to unzip, then just go. They have to use acrobatics to do a 5 sec task. First they have to fully expose themselves from their waist to their knees (otherwise they risk water damage on their clothes). Then while holding their attire from dropping to that germ infested floor, they have to maneuver themselves over an apparatus that was designed to sit on but that no woman in their right mind would. This acrobatic stance involves an unnatural position which enables her to keep herself from falling forward, backwards, side to side, or heaven forbid, down in that germ infested apparatus she is desperately trying to keep every body part from having any contact with. Then when she is able to successfully complete this task, she has to gather her clothes that are wrapped around her knees and put them back in place. This usually involves one zipper, at least one button and often a decorative belt. After which time she can finally exit that tiny cubicle.
    2) There are usually almost twice as many places (that were designed for that particular purpose) for men to relieve themselves in the men's restroom than in a women's. I believe the restroom designers/architects have this notion that men like to watch women squirming in line waiting to use the restroom so they purposefully give them less to create this women waiting in line phenomenon.
    3) If a man ever found themselves where they might have to wait, they just turn around and leave because they have known since they were 2 years old that there are several different options available to them to do this very mundane task discreetly. Women don't have this option... at least not where they can do it discreetly and maintain dignity at the same time.

    Which is why I, being a woman (how else would I know the horrid details of such a simple task), avoid public bathrooms at all costs. But sometimes you just gotta go.

    I see lines in the men's room at movie theaters. Which is one of the greatest phenomena ever.

    10 guys in line in complete silence.
    This is the only time the "skip a urinal" code is broken.
    As such there's 5 guys at the urinals in complete silence.
    Eyes are up and forward.
    Muscle memory is key to do everything without looking.

    Hahahahahahahaha! Tismydroid, I can only imagine this feat as I am not a woman but the mental image is priceless. :biggrin:


    Zom, You are on the money!! I don't think that two guys would talk to each other while standing next to each other in a restroom if one of them were on fire!! :D

    Consistent line for me: Bathroom at a baseball game during the 7th inning.

    YOU are "that guy" at the bar restroom.... :) :) :)
    We are just voiding in 2 adjacent urinals.....I don't want to talk......peeing is NOT a meant to be a bonding experience. Alcohol or not......please refrain from attempting to make eye contact and saying "how you doin'?"
    Creepy (insert creeped out icon here...no clue how to do that with dots and parenthesis) :)

    June 2012. Technology Conference at a convention center around lunchtime. Line outside men's restroom.

    Many years ago, I was at Disneyland. Noticed a long, winding line next to some rides, so (not realizing it was the women's restroom line) I asked the woman at the end of the line what ride the line was for! Lol.
    I guess I should have asked a little more discretely to avoid all those looks they gave me.

    If there's a long line for the men's room at a Nascar race you can only imagine what the line looks like for the ladies room LOL

    I have seen girls wait in line for the men's room because the line was shorter. dancedroid

    Nobody had a choice ... she dropped them and backed right up to it, did her business and off she went. She was, however, clearly under the influence of adult beverages. But there was 160,000 people at the race, I'm sure she wasn't the only one LOL :icon_eek:
