EXCUSE ME PLEASE......
COULD YOU TELL ME WHERE THE REST ROOMS ARE?
NEVER MIND.......I SEE IT
Forget equal rights, women should demand that every public building have bigger restrooms, and more of them, for women. After all, statisticians constantly remind us that women outnumber men. We live longer, we take longer, and we use stalls. And guys always complain when they have to wait for us.
But first, a woman has to wait on line to get into the ladies room,
Then wait for a stall,
Then find a ‘safe place’ to put your handbag,
Then clean the toilet,
Then position the seat paper,
Then half undress so you can sit down,
Then do your business,
Then try to grab enough toilet paper from a dispenser unwilling to yield any,
Then get dressed up again,
Then find an empty sink,
Then figure out a place to put you bag so it won't get wet while you wash,
Then find a soap dispenser with actual soap in it,
Then wash up,
Then try to get a paper towel from a broken dispenser or use an air dryer that works,
Then find a comb in your handbag,
Then then fix your hair,
Then find your lipstick in your handbag,
Then fix your makeup,
Then check your outfit.
(and heaven forbid TOM is there…. )
Walk into the mens room,
Find the nearest empty urinal,
Unzip, shake, zip, maybe wash their hands, and leave
And with all the water and ice tea I’ve been drinking, I use my GPS to find the restrooms before I even enter the building. Too bad they don't take reservations.
