    This DH of mine tells a funny story about public bathrooms during our family get-togethers when we're sharing embarrassing moments from our young and wild days in Texas...he was hurrying to the bathroom because of "too much beer in one evening" and ran into the bathroom with no line at the door---wrong---and when he realized he was in the "ladies" there was no door handle on the back-side of the door---he nearly clawed a hole in the door trying to get out......keeps all our kids laughing every time he tells that one.

    The same thing happened to me at a wedding. I had had a couple of glasses of wine (that's all it takes for me!) and had to go to the little girls room. Only problem was that it was the little boys room. There was one guy standing at urinal so I beat it out of there as
    quick as can be!

    Luckily for me, I have never done that. I travel overseas nor go to places that don't speak English or have English signs.

    I can beat that. I work at an animal shelter and I scanned an opossum the other day for a microchip. The officer was laughing his ads off at me. I was so weak from being sick I couldn't even think straight

    I ave done tat a few times myself. One time I was rushing to the rest room their was a man right behind me I turned around and asked him why he was following me into the rest room he smiled and pointed to the sign that said men Now I was embrassed. I have found a man in the womens room but it didn't appear to be an accident as he was just standing looking around

    I was at a dinner with executives and VIPs in my company and I was one of a handful of women; we were in a large private area of a restaurant. My colleague and I were talking, and he wanted to continue the conversation even though I wanted to go to the bathroom. He walked me over and opened the door for me -- but it was the men's room! i took one step and backed out; fortunately, it was empty. He claims he didn't notice it was not the ladies' room. We laughed about that for a long time.

    And then there are those times you just don't know what to think. I worked for a closeted transgender person, born male but, with a muscular football physique and deep voice, claiming to be female and making it known she had a romantic partner who was female. Several times, she came into the multi-stall women's room when I was there. I was not comfortable, but I didn't let my discomfort show and left as soon as possible. Other women, however, would leave as soon as she showed up or go quite a distance to use another restroom.

    I walked into one once and a man in there just looked at me. I said "you're in the right place aren't you?" He smiled and said yes. I high tailed it out of there only to find my husband and son standing outside the door just laughing.

    You know you're tired when...you keep reading the same sentence over and over.

    Re: using the wrong bathroom...I used to be a Cub Scout leader and when we went on field trips, I used to take the boys into the mens room on purpose (I'd never let the boys go alone...too much temptation for them to get in trouble!). I'd stand in the doorway and yell "Woman incoming!" I've never cleared a room so quickly! LOL
