Just asking because I witnessed a situation this past weekend that just about floored me.
Here it is:
My cousin and I were out to dinner Friday evening at a crowded popular restaurant in our area. We finished our meal, paid and went to the restroom on the way out. The restroom is set up quite nice. There is an anteroom before going into the actual room where the sinks and stalls are. The anteroom has a couple couches and a full length mirror. Outside the anteroom is a corner you turn and then you are in the main waiting area of the restaurant.
Cousin and I came out of the stalls and the line for the ladies restroom had grown, so much so that it snaked out the restroom, into the anteroom and almost to the corner where the main waiting area is. Talk about timing!! Also, the door to the anteroom was propped open by ladies waiting to use the facilities. Apologies for the lengthy background, but want to give as much detail as possible.
So, we come out of our respective stalls, two other ladies go in. Cousin and I go to the sinks to wash, then to the mirror to apply lip balm and make sure there are no food remnants in our teeth. As cousin grabbed her handbag, a woman walks over to my cousin and loudly with laughter says, “GEEZ, WHAT DID YOU HAVE FOR DINNER, ASPARAGUS? YOUR FLOW IS MIGHTY STRONG!” I almost choked! All the ladies in the restroom had jaws on the floor. One woman even covered her daughter’s ears. It was awful! My cousin was so embarrassed and so was I. We hurriedly gathered our things and heard murmuring from others like, “how rude”, “she didn’t say that, did she”, oh my goodness”!!! We got out of there as fast as we could.
When is it ever okay to call someone on their rude behavior? Was this an instance that warrants it? It was a terrible experience.
