Powder Room Poll

Scene: you're washing your hands in the bathroom at work. There is a long mirror above the sinks that reflects the stalls.

A coworker walks out of a stall.
You look up to get some soap.
Your eyes meet right as that person is exiting the stall.

Question: Creepy? Just a part of life?

For some reason when I'm the eye catcher I feel kinda creepy and when I'm the eye catchee I feel like I'm on display.

Maybe I'm just weird.... yeah, that's probably it.


  1. Just a part of life.

    But my office bathroom only has two stalls, and for some reason someone was waiting to use the one I was in today, even though the other one was THAT'S creepy.

  2. Huh, I'd never really thought about that before. But now that you mention it, I guess I do feel a little strange when that happens, when I'm the eye catcher.

    I think it's a normal reaction to look up when someone comes through a door in a room where you are. The fact that they were just in a bathroom stall and you more or less know what they just did ups the awkward a bit.

    Part of life with definite weird undertones!
