which door would you go through?

This was my dilemma today as I had to use the restroom after my wonderful lunch with my son. I really wasn't sure and I didn't want to make the wrong choice. That could be a real embarrassing catastrophe! I had to ask Jake which one was the women's restroom as he had been to this eating establishment before. He laughed and pointed me in the right direction.

The problem is that not everyone is as lucky to be with someone who has personally gone through the same process and either made the right guess or the wrong one. As I sat in my stall, I heard someone come in and wash their hands. I didn't think anything of it until this person gave out a little cough. It was a deep, manly cough. I peeked through the cracks and could only tell that this person was tall and had a masculine build. I realize it could have been a woman but I'm pretty sure it was a man. Thank goodness he (or she) only chose to wash his/her hands.

I've decided that if I ever return to this fun Boulder landmark that served great burgers, I will make sure I don't have to use their restroom. Even though I know which door to go through, it is obvious that not everyone does.

I'd say the one with the right leg on it...forgetting the pointing hand....or the one with the longest line!

then I'd be wrong and just move on. I actually intentionally went in the mens at a rest stop once. it was a holiday and they were doing construction on I-20 (from Dallas to Shreveport...VERY CONGESTED HIGHWAY). We sat in PARK for about 3 hours. and I'd needed to pee for about an hour before that. By the time we got to civilization with a toilet I and about 648 other women were desparate. The men, not so much. My brother walks in and out of the mens while I'm about 6 back from even making it in the DOOR of the wummin's. I ask him...is it a 1-holer?? (yup)....is it clean?? (shrug). Dammit, I GOTTA GO!

surprised the pee outta the guy who was waiting when I came out. I heard a lady who was in front of me and STILL waiting saying "I think she really needed to go..." as I thought, yeah, babe....we're back on the road and you're still standing there doing the peepee dance. SEEEEEYA!!

Too funny! I would've checked with the waitress . . . .and then have somebody guard the door!

Huckdoll said...

Oh gosh, that is totally bizarre. I'd be fully confused, too.

mom said...

I can just imagine Jake laughing!

I think it is Macroni Grill that has Womens on the outside buy mens on the inside.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Oh, that is funny. I'll have to check that place out the next time I'm in Boulder.

Karen said...

Oh golly. Are you going to tell us which one it was? I think that's just . . . well, not too funny. I'm actually surprised someone hasn't created a problem for the establishment by now. I mean, it could create a problem, and in today's society, you just never know how people are going to react to something like that.
OK, spill - which one!!!

Oh wow... yeah! That would have caused me some confusion!! lol Yeah... I think I just would have crossed my legs ;)
