Bathroom Lessons

Here are some things I learned while on my recent road trip to and from Alabama:

When I use the restroom in a public place, I will only choose the handicapped bathroom if there is no one else in the bathroom with me, for fear of them looking at me with a "shame-shame" face. Nevermind the fact that I'm pregnant and/or changing clothes. But seriously- try to change clothes in a 2x4 stall and not drop something into the toilet. Still, I'll risk someone in a wheelchair coming in during my potty time and scolding me with their eyes than know it'll happen while someone else is in there washing their hands or something.

There are no acceptable restrooms at gas stations or fast food establishments. And no, I don't count Bucee's because that place is more of an amusement park than a gas station. And yet each restroom you go to there will be a sign that says something to the likes of "The cleanliness of this bathroom is extremely important to us. If you find this restroom to be unsatisfactory in any way, please let the attendant know". Umm, I don't have the time to tell you everything that is unsatisfactory, and I'd rather not waste my time doing it. I'll just try not to touch anything with any part of my body, do my business as fast as I can and run away before I can smell anything.

I know I learned more than that, but apparently I was a little single-focused on this trip.
