    there's 3 stalls in the men's room on my floor. two of the door swing inwards, and one swings out (again, the consistency of this design is awesome). the outward swinging door always closes itself, so you can never tell if somebody is in there unless you unsuccessfully try to open it, or if you do the feet check upon entering the room. i usually do the latter.

    anyways, i was in the outward swinging stall about to exit, and some guy pull up at the urinal, rips a low mumbling fart, and then audibly whispers "ohhhhhhh yeah".

    i then exited the stall. he had no idea i was there, but clearly felt "caught" when i walked by.

    ^ you haven't said Gomestar here.

    But generally no-one surely chooses middle trap from an empty three? Likewise odd numbered urinals treated the same. Whole Loo culture here :nodding:

    You wouldn't happen to be a bobsledder would you?

    no, but not far behind. The lock was super whacky and had to be turned way in the opposite direction to release.

    What was that story again about the claustrophobic woman who got locked inside the bathroom at work?

    Didn't she claw through the door, but there was clearly an easier way out or something?

    Haven't posted here in a while, but saw a first today. Dual stalls, guy waiting on the corner for one to free up. Forget it! If that was me i would hightail it to the urinal, wash up, leave a hit another floor or wait 10 minutes. There is no way I want to come face to face with the guy who is knowingly hot seating me.

    Warm seat action disturbing at best, but seeing the guy delivering the hot seat? No way.

    I had this one guy wait int the bathroom right outside the stall door for me to finish shitting. Totally rushed and ruined my experience. What a fucking weirdo.

    i'm not sure if i could perform under that kind of pressure.
    one thing i enjoy most about travelling home to ireland / europe, you can find some nice private toilets.
    this idea of seeing the guy's legs in the stall next to you is definitely not as common, outside of big corporate offices.

    just moved onto a new floor at a new office location today. Unloaded one, and pulled the flush lever only to hear a small trickle of water.




    it's still there.

    I love how you later went back into the stall to check.

    A true pooper trooper.
