I've always been amused by people that repeatedly try an occupied toilet cubicle door, as if it's somehow just stuck and will open if they keep trying it.
Today I had the experience of someone actually rotating the lock with a coin to open it, resulting in a surprisingly heated exchange with the occupant.
Why wouldn't you assume the obvious, that it is occupied?
Still gets hit on average once every three months.
People gonna people.
@PeteMoss I showed this to a truck driving friend that could not stop laughing.
Just the other week I had a woman pull at the door of my cubicle with such force, that the lock broke and door opened wide. I screamed, simply couldn't control it. I was not expecting to be exposed like that.
Besides, there were two empty cubicles next to this one!
@SeventhMagpie People can be so very strange.
I'm not surprised you let out a scream. It's a primal reaction to being very, very vulnerable.
Strange doesn't begin to cover a situation, when somebody takes by storm the only occupied toilet cubicle in the facility.
Also, women are obviously not as weak as some might think. :)
@SeventhMagpie I have two Russian colleagues. I made one of them angry once and I'm fairly sure she could destroy a house let alone a toilet door.
That's a known fact, there's even a poem about that by a classical poet Nikolai Nekrasov. :)
The horseman she'll vanquish in racing;
In danger, not flinching, she'll save:
A galloping steed boldly facing;
To enter a burning hut, brave.
@SeventhMagpie That about covers it 💝 🇷🇺 🔥
