Where is the Ladies Room?

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

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
Nuff said.

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.

    oooh -- and then do this at an airport with your luggage!!!!

    When I was pregnant, I knew every bathroom on the 45 minute trip to work.

    I like to think that the extra "go power" of drinking more fluids is taking a little of the fat waste product with it . . .

    Since my husband has gotten older, he sometimes has more urgency. I feel it is sweet revenge. I remember being on the interstate and asking him to stop ...he continues on to a better on/off exit...Now....when he needs to stop, we stop. I remind him of the day.....When you gotta go.., you gotta go!!!!

    OH.......How True......How True. My family always teases me that I KNOW where every restroom is wherever we go and I tell them (all MEN) that I have to because of what you have listed above. I have always envied my family of men their ability to go wherever we are quickly and easily. I especially remember a fishing trip in Canada when they had to let me off on a shore that had woods right up to the water!!!!!!!! Who knew what I might encounter, BUT...........when you have to go, you have to go!!! emoticon

    LOL. My son gripes that I go too much, "What!!! Again??" Men have the bladder capacity of a whale. They can drink a keg of beer and still not need to go. I can think of drinking water and I''m in there.

    HA! HA! It was amazing the other week.. I went on a date with the hubs... and I had to wait for him! It was incredible. He came out and was like, "Holy cow the line in there was intense! I actually had to wait my turn!" I just laughed and said, "Now you know how I feel most of the time!!!"

    You have done it again...started my rainy day with a smile. Have to agree with everything you put down on your list.
    Several days ago I did step into a bathroom at a dinner theatre and found only one other woman in there. I stopped short and said "Are you sure we are in the right restroom there is no line?" Both of us had a good laugh. Within 3 minutes the room held 7 of us, with 4 stalls. The line was forming as I left, good timing is everything...
