This is something I’ve noticed in men’s public restrooms for decades. If there are are four bathroom stalls, as there are in the men’s room on our floor at work:
If none are occupied – A man will often go to stall #1 or #4.
If #1 occupied – A man will generally go to #4 or #3.
If #2 is occupied – A man will almost always go to #4.
#1 and #3 occupied – A man will generally go to #4.
Those of you of the male persuasion: Is this your observation of public bathroom behavior as well?
Those of you of the female persuasion: Do women do this as well, avoid being next to the occupied stall? Or is it, as I’ve seen in too many mediocre movies, that women seek out the adjacent stall?
And while I’m on the topic, what is your methodology for minimizing picking up the germs of the public loo? Why your public restroom should utilize touchless or automatic dispensers and faucets.
A relative of mine posted this on Facebook: “Question? If you’re in a public restroom and a guy answers a conference call, are you not supposed to flush?”
Curious minds want to know.
