Why take a restroom stall right beside me when there are many other open ones? Login/Join

Never fails, happens all the time at work. There is a whole line of open stalls and I select the least offensive and start to poop. Then some clown comes in and sits right beside me and begins making a racket and stinking up the place. Why not go a few stalls down and give us both some space? I can't think of any reason these guys like to snuggle up in the stalls with a bathroom buddy unless they enjoy the odor of feces. It's like those people on the highway that need to drive side by side with someone else, except much smellier.

keep your feet inside the stall area at all times!

I don't like it either. All I can figure is that they have a "favorite stall" and will go there no matter what the current usage configuration is..

I've gone into the restroom at work and if 4 of the 5 stalls are busy - I leave and come back later if at all possible. I don't want to sit beside or between other people being smelly.

You greatly overestimate the awareness of 98% of the people walking amongst us.

Not as bad as taking a pee in a urinal and a guy sets up at the one next to you when there are others open down the line. WTF!

I'd prefer people didn't set up camp right next to me, but it doesn't bother me enough to post about it.

People are creatures of habit. I bet each of you usually use the same stall every time you go in. He has his and you have yours.

That’s why I frequent the single unit bathrooms in my building.

Makes me feel super important, too.

This thread cracks me up. I've actually gone to one of those lower kids urinals just so I don't stand next to someone.

Not remotely.

OP, bring a bag of fake vomit next time and make a puking south and throw it on the floor / on this dudes stall.

What impeccable timing. This happened to me yesterday at work and I thought the same thing!!! Plenty of open stalls, stay away from me.

You can just FF to 7:30 for how this should end.

Scenario 1- 3 stalls, guy before you is in the middle one. Either stall you select puts you next to him.

Scenario 2- Of the stalls unoccupied, one or more are either out of service, left so nasty by the previous occupant, or out of toilet paper that the only viable alternative is to use the stall next to the occupied one.

But yeah, if the stalls / urinals available allow for separation, then you chose your own space and leave me to mine.

The one exception that I'll make is if I happen to use the restroom at the same time with a good friend or close co-worker and we are having a conversation before entering the Men's Room, in which case we may stand next to each other at the urinal and continue the conversation...or not. This possible exception does not extend to stalls...if I'm in my "office" then it's time to take care of "business" and all conversations/ communications are put on hold.
