8. All the stalls are taken and I have to just pretend like I came in to wash my hands and then go look for another bathroom

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

Ugh, this always sucks because NO ONE goes all the way to a public bathroom JUST to wash their hands. I know it's a lie, the people in the stalls who heard me come in know it's a lie, but I still do it because I'm a coward.



7. Someone stands next to me at the urinals even though there are enough unused urinals that they could've left a buffer zone

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

Oh man, ALWAYS leave a buffer zone. Seriously. I'm not worried about you peeking at my dick or anything, but now I'm getting a shy bladder and this whole thing got a lot more complicated.



6. Someone pissed all over the floor and I accidentally step in it

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

HOW did that much piss get on the floor?! Were you even AIMING at the urinal?

Sidenote: whoa, how did THIS MANY pubes get on the urinal? Like, it's only 4 or 5, but that's A LOT for a urinal.



5. A co-worker tries to start a conversation

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

Listen, I know we work together and might have some things we need to discuss (or maybe you're just making small-talk), but this is NOT the time nor the place. We're all here to do some terrible, shameful business, so let's not extend our time here by any longer than necessary. If you really want to talk, just wait until we leave the room that people enter to expel feces in.



4. I sit down in a stall and realize the seat is SUPER warm, meaning another ass was JUST here.

On the one hand, it's KIND of nice. A nice warm seat, especially when it's the middle of winter or something. But then your mind is inevitably going to wander to the ass that was here before. How clean was that ass? My ass and that ass now have shared a toilet seat, so they're intimately connected for all time - like Voldemort and Harry Potter. I don't think my ass is ready for that.



3. There's one unused stall but whoever came before didn't flush and it still stinks.

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

Oh c'mon, now I gotta flush it before sitting down. And that's assuming it's not clogged! Just common courtesy, folks.



2. There's one unused stall but that's because it's covered in shit and piss and the toilet is clogged with way too much toilet paper.

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

What a nightmare - one stall, but it's been ruined by some inconsiderate MONSTER, who created a disaster and ran for the hills.

Listen, accidents happen - I'm sure you didn't MEAN to clog the toilet, but you need to take responsibility for your evil, twisted actions. Now if someone walks in a few moments later, they'll think I'm the responsible party. How DARE you put me in that position? Now I'm dealing with your mess AND I still have to take a shit.



1. Someone else is in the bathroom trying to figure out if anyone is transgender, and just being a real weird asshole about it, like staring at people and questioning them about their genitals and acting like a total psychopath.

The 8 Biggest Concerns I Have When Going To the Bathroom

Why do you care so much about my genitals? You understand that you've been going to the bathroom next to transgender people your entire life and you haven't noticed one way or the other, right? No one has any actual reason to care about what gender you were assigned at birth - we're all here to take a shit and get out before our social anxiety causes us to panic.

That's it. Stop making the place where we all take shits EVEN SHITTIER.
