Potty Peeping Twins

This is a story that happened to me on a recent family trip.

We had stopped at a rest stop at some point on the drive down and I went to the ladies room. I noticed an older woman with young twins, about 4 years old.  I didn’t think much of it and entered the stall and went about my business.

Suddenly I have one of the children in my stall laughing!  “Granny, this lady is a grown up who wears a diaper! Hehehehe, only babies wear diapers!” She had crawled under the door! I covered myself best I could and asked her kindly to please leave my stall and hoped that would be the end of it.

Nope. The grandmother continued to let them crawl all over the dirty floor, in and out of my stall, and laugh at my “diaper” (maxi pad, but who am I to give the talk?)

I finally came out of the stall, annoyed, and the grandmother proceeds to berate me for exposing her poor innocent granddaughters to my private parts! Umm excuse me?

I could not get out of there fast enough!   0202-13

    Well I never! I would be quite cross if anyone barged in on me using the ladies room.

    My response to the grandmother afterward would be: “You let your ill-mannered children into my private space where private parts are supposed to be exposed for the elimination of wastes. I’ll be reporting you to the management, and I suggest you wash the hands of those children before they exit this restroom. Good day to you.”

    (It’s bad enough having the silly Doctor all up in my engine parts. I don’t need CHILDREN there, too. :P)

    Really rude GM. I was on the mom end of this once. My then-three-year-old son and I were at a mall once, and I had to use the restroom, but I took him into the stall with me. As I was getting my self rearranged, he dropped to his knees and popped his head under the divider into the next occupied stall, and said, “HI!” The response was, “Well, hello…” Of course, I immediately said my son’s name and told him to get off the floor, then said to the woman, “I am so sorry for that.” She chuckled and said, “It’s quite all right.” We exchanged smiles as we exited, and she chatted up my son a little bit as we washed hands. She handled it very graciously.

    I understand the challenge of toddlers in public bathrooms (sometimes you just have to go), but GM should have been checking them in the first place…and to blame the victim of their behavior…clueless.

    That woman needs to either control her little spawn better or not let them out in public.
    My first cousin pulled this on me when I was nine and she was four. She actually stuck her head under the door and yelled, scared the daylights out of me, and unfortunately my immediate reflex was to kick her in the face. I will admit that I still don’t feel as bad about that as I should, but I did apologize (and point out that it was a reflex, not something I purposely went out to do). I got yelled at by her parents, my parents, and a few people who weren’t even involved, some of whom we didn’t know. I was pretty mad by that point because nobody mentioned the fact that she stuck her head under the stall door, and if she hadn’t been dumb enough to do that, I never would have kicked her.
    This was neither the first nor the last in the long, long line of bad decisions my first cousin has made with her life.
