Fully Occupied Bathrooms

Thanks to dug for the inspiration on this one. Here’s the situation:

What’s the proper procedure when you head for the bathroom and walk in confidently, only to discover ALL stalls and urinals occupied?

Ouch, that’s a tough one. First of all, don’t just loiter around! The worst thing you can do is stand there like a deer caught in the headlights – you need to assess the situation quickly. As soon as you realize all facilities are occupied, head directly to the sink as if that’s what you had intended all along. Stride confidently and with purpose, and nobody will ever know you had any other destination in mind.

Give your hands a good thorough washing, and consider checking your grooming status. With a little luck, by the time you are done, a urinal or stall will have opened up. If not, it’s time to get out of there. Leave the bathroom, regroup, and either try again later or head to a different bathroom.

Clearly, this advice only applies to situations where there is a reasonable expectation of a spot opening up. If it’s halftime during a big game, you may just have to line up.
