Yeah, it sucks, doesn't it?

I usually take the end stall and wait until everyone leaves. Or, I try to go at an unpopular time (I highly avoid 10 and 3, big traffic times for some reason).

If I was desperate, here I could travel to another floor where they have an individual bathroom w/shower for all-nighters.

My friend has a complex about it and WILL NOT poop at work. SHe never has, and just can't. She works close enough that she has gone home. Click here to enlarge

My mother doesn't either. My mom can barely pee at work. Click here to enlarge She often runs in the house, doing the pee dance. Click here to enlarge
She works in a hospital, and says they keep the bathrooms nasty. Click here to enlarge

We luckily have a one stall bathroom (so you go in and lock the door and no one else can come in). It sucks though.

I don't unless I really really have to and can't wait until I get home. I used to do the end stall thing until I got done with my business and found someone who was actually handicapped waiting for it! Click here to enlarge

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

We have one like that here too...actually it's the handicapped/ADA bathroom. I don't like it because the toilet is too high. Click here to enlarge

There are no handicapped stalls in the regular bathrooms.

End stall and you wait. It always fun when you do the outwaiting thing and it occurs to you that the other person is doing the outwaiting thing too. Click here to enlarge

I hate you people who wait. It makes me feel really self conscious and makes the pee pee not come out.

See I do the wait it out thing but I take my paranoia a step further and believe that everyone is checking out my shoes under the stall and know that it's me who has to poop. And for some reason that really bothers me and I've started to lift my legs up in the stall. Click here to enlarge
I also avoid high traffic times.

I can only poop at work or at other public toilets, unless I REALLY have to go or it's an absolute emergency. The toilets at home both have very weak flushes and it is so nerve wracking. Stuff gets clogged in them all the time. Click here to enlarge

after today, I will have my very own bathroom. I will be the only female here.

at my old job there were 2 out of the way bathrooms that I frequented for pooping emergencies. I would rather go at home.

I remember once I had a bad case of the bubble guts.
I was in the stall NEXT to the last one. It was all peaceful in there since I was by myself.
Then this ridiculous rush of people starts up, and I'm all Click here to enlarge
So I stop mid-poop, thinking, okay, they'll all be done in a few (seriously, it was like 4 or 5 people).
But then people started talking, others were doing makeup I guess, fixing clothes...I want to scream out 'would you fuckers hurry the FUCK up so I can finish shitting in peace??'
My stomach was screaming, and I finally couldn't take it anymore and just let loose. Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge Complete with sound. Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge
I stayed in there a LONG time after people left.Click here to enlarge

My biggest fear is that there is no PMS and that this is my personality.

We have several in our clinic. All are individual rooms with fans.

We're lucky enough to have two individual toilets close by my office. The only thing that bugs me is when I'm in there and the automatic airfreshener goes off. I always take that as a personal affront. Click here to enlarge

See that would bother me too. Because then you know someone sees you come out, if it stinks, they know it was you. And if someone else needs to go, do they rattle the door? That is something I find so annoying, it always happens to me in the supermarket bathroom. Then they're just standing there wonder WTF you were doing in there that took so long.
