Wednesday, I had to wait in line at the bank drive-thru longer than usual. So when I stopped for T-Hoe's gas at the Sis-Town Casey's, I decided to take advantage of their bathroom.
I have learned my lesson about paying for the gas first! When I did that, the gas pump wouldn't let me pump my prepaid gas, and I had to walk back inside to have it reset. So this time, before getting in line to pay, I headed down the center aisle to the back of the store to the bathroom.
As I came out the end of the aisle, I saw a Casey's employee on my left. She had come down the next aisle, sprinting like Usain Bolt! Into the bathroom she darted, just ahead of me. Actually, she was walking at a normal pace. She just seemed that much faster compared to my lumbering gait. Maybe that uniform shirt gave her special aerodynamic properties!
Anyhoo... the main door to the restroom had just swung closed ahead of me. I opened it to the sight of that worker disappearing behind the door of the handicap stall! Welp! No need for me to continue. I went back out and hiked to the checkout to pre-pay my gas.
Not sure why that gal needed the handicap stall. She looked mid-20s, a normal weight, no infirmities apparent. The other stall was empty. Not sure why this worker would need the hand rails to arise from the throne.
Good thing I was able to patronize the School-Turn Casey's after my next two stops at the post office and credit union. They converted their restroom to only one toilet. It's a waste of space, I think, having just a single bathroom with a locking door, rather than the old set-up of three stalls. But at least it was not occupied this day!
I have to confess that I am guilty of using the handicap stall. The toulet is higher and easier to get on and off. But never when there are others waiting. That would be rude.ReplyDelete
I give you a pass, because you are not in your mid-20s! Anybody over 40, I can understand might have creaky joints. Or if somebody is walking slow, or with a limp. Or even a mom with a young child who needs tending. It's the seemingly young and able-bodied I begrudge the luxury of the handicap stall!Delete
I have a suspicion: maybe that cashier saw you coming and raced in there to drop a penny for you to find. Would you pick up a penny from a toilet floor? Perhaps they are speculating and would go back later to check?ReplyDelete
I might pick up a penny from the floor of a women's bathroom if it was well-maintained, and take it to the sink to wash when I wash my hands. But NEVER from the floor of a men's room. Not that I would be in there anyway. Although there WAS that one time, when I was at the ER right before my gallbladder was removed...
That stall is probably where she stashes her weed.ReplyDelete
Maybe! I've seen employees come out of the handicap stall with cell phone in hand. I've thought they might use it as a hideout for texting while on the clock.Delete
If you didn't smell any smoke, it could have been edibles ....ReplyDelete
Could have been. Such a pleasant place to ingest them, heh, heh!Delete
