SS from school yesterday. I need the handicapped stall - as I can not get off the other toilets with out help due to a cast on my leg from the thigh to my ankle . SO on my way in I stopped in the bathroom to find the stall occupied...not by someone actually using it, not even for changing, but by someone having a phone conversation. Noticing that I was waiting for it, she calls out " I am going to be a while and if you wait - I'll just be longer!" This is a small building and this is the only handicapped stall in it. So I left and came back a half hour later, only to hear her say "Yeah, I am in the bathroom, in the handicapped stall, it's so funny, there's this chick who keeps coming back and I am holding her up!" and then laughed.
I ended up needing to change my clothes because of her, and she thought this was hysterical. I don't get it. Luckily most people are not like this.
That is disgusting on her part. If I could have held my temper, I think I would have gotten building management involved after the first comment. I'm sorry that happened to you. (If I couldn't have held my temper, I probably would have done some very un-ehell approved things, involving loud noises to ensure she couldn't hold her conversation. Singing songs from Les Mis at the top of my lungs comes to mind.)
I think I'd have gotten someone to come in with me, and then I'd have said, "I have an ankle to hip cast on, so I really do need
the handicapped stall. I'm about to pee my pants--would you come out, please?" (asking nicely is MUCH more likely to get her to come out of the stall)
And then had the other person chime in to say, "Yes, please--you really do need to vacate that stall."
If she didn't come out, I'd have gotten a quarter out of my pocket and unlocked the stall from the outside (a great many of the will let you do it), and then simply gone into the stall while she was in there.
There's no way in hell I'd have peed my pants because of her.
In fact, did you *ever* say anything to her? Not that she wasn't incredibly rude, but you really should be advocating for yourself. Speak up, woman!
