Yesterday I went to Walmart. I went into the Men's restroom, and was
satnding at a urinal taking a piss, when a young woman walked into the
room. She was so busy pushing buttons on the phone that she did not even
notice she was in the wrong restroom. There was another man at a urinal,
and he looked over at me with a big grin on his face.
Meanwhile this woman continued poking her phone buttons totally unaware
of her surroundings. I finished pissing, walked right past her, and went
over to the sink, and washed my hands. That gave me a good view of this
woman by looking in the mirror. She put her phone in her purse and
pulled out a hair brush, and began brushing her hair. I should mention
that she is only about 8 feet from the urinals, and that other guy is
still standing by his urinal. I decided to stay by the sink just to see
how long it would take her to notice she was in the wrong restroom. By
now, she had been in there at least 3 minutes. She put the brush back in
her purse, pulls out some lipstick, and puts some on. Then she grabs her
phone and starts poking buttons again.
Suddenly, somehow, she realized she was in the wrong restroom, and
quickly leaves without saying a word. Both myself and the other man
crack up laughing. He said "she must be lost". I replied, "I think her
smartphone is smarter than her". She was in that restroom for about 5
minutes, before she even noticed that there were two men, and urinals in
(And she was NOT blonde) :)
I still recall some years ago, watching a young man walk into a tree
while playing with his phone. But this topped that one by far.

The bad thing about Walmart is that they don't have a consistent side
for the bathrooms. We have one in our town and least 3 others within
30 mile radius. Some stores the women's bathroom is on the left and
others are on the right.
I have went in the wrong bathroom more than once and I don't keep my
nose in my phone.

I went into the wrong one once, and left as soon as I noticed (it was
just a few seconds). The best thing would be that no one else had
noticed. The second best thing would be that people acted as if they
didn't notice. One of those things happened.

I think we've all gone into the wrong restroom at some point in time,
but a "few seconds" is one thing..... Five minutes without noticing is a
whole different thing...
It's funny, because I've seen people go into the wrong restroom quite
often in a bar, and no one seems to care. But in a place where people
are assumed to be sober, (like Walmart) it's a different matter.
Sometimes I think those cellphones in the hands of young people is an
addiction worse than doing drugs.... I've never seen an older person
become so lost in their phone, that they dont know where they are. Yet,
I see the young ones spent 99% of their time staring at that thing.
Heck, I see them in a bar just looking at that phone. Why do they even
go to the bar if they cant socialize with the people there?
A few years ago, I hired a young guy to help me for a few days with some
work. He spent all his time looking at his phone for the first hour on
the job, and he had no clue what I had asked him to do. I finally walked
up to him, and said "you have 2 choices, give me the phone and earn your
pay, or leave". He handed me the phone, and I shut it off. Good grief,
you would have thought I had cut his arm off or something. For the next
hour all I heard was whining about the phone, and how he was missing all
his "important calls". I gave him his pay for 2 hours along with his
phone and told him to leave. What gets me, is how they pay for the phone
service. It's not cheap when they have all those gadgets on them.
Myself, I have a prepaid plain flip phone, and I use it for an
occasional business call, and/or emergncies. Most of the time it's in my
car. The only time its in my pocket is when I'm expecting a call, or
when I'm in a situation that could require emergency services.
Ruddy good show, what? I've also wondered about that.
Some Wal, the food section is on the right, others the
left. Wish they would standardize the store layout
better than that.

I first walked into walmart when the big store opened. Needed some cleaner
of some sort. Headed through hardware. No, it's in grocery far opposite
corner of store. That was a long angry walk. Don't go there often.
Im good when the dollar generals have the same layout. That sometimes
Have you ever been stuck behind a slow-moving over-sized load on a two-lane road?
Well, that now happens at Walmart entrances.
The other day I got stuck behind a 400 lb blob of fat on an obesecycle.
The poor obesecycle was really struggling with all the weight.
Maybe Walmart needs to add obesecycle lanes to their store entrances and exits?
The worst thing about the ones here is they are putting in automatic
water facets AND some kind of idiotic three basin sink with the
faucets built into a sort of top shelf. It's like a U laying on it's
side but the top leg of the U is shorter then the bottom, sink side,
of the U. The water outlets under the bottom of the top U leg and
there is barely enough room "inside" the U to get your hands in. So
you are always hitting the bottom of the "sink". Plus the water only
turns on for about 2 seconds and then refuses to come back on. I
cornered the manager and he acted like "so what's the problem".

Long time ago I came out of a movie theater walked down the hall and
went into the restroom only to realize I had taken the wrong door. The
men's and ladies restroom doors were right next to each other. The
ladies restroom door was the 2nd door on the left, but I went into the
1st door on the left. No one was in the men's restroom and I made an
about face in about 3 secs when I saw the urinals.
A truck driver was making a delivery after most of the employees left
and asked to use the restroom. We pointed him down the shop and told him
to take the first right. There was a lot of stock piled near the
entrance so it wasn't too difficult to miss it so he took the second right.
He came back with a strange look on his face and made some comment about
the photos. We had a cleaning crew that came in after hours to handle
the offices and restrooms so we had no reason to go into the ladies room
but figured it was time for an trip to see what had rattled him so.
Seems the women had wallpapered the place with Playgirl centerfolds.
In later years I had a gay cubicle mate who hung up a Playboy calendar
and some other tasteful photos. I didn't mind that a bit. I also didn't
mind that she answered the damn phone civilly and took messages.
Management took exception to the calendar though.
