I work in an office building, and there are no disabled/physically challenged/handicapped men who work on this floor. And, the men's room is not available to the public at large, since the elevators open up to an empty area that you need a swipe card to pass through. Which leads me to my question: When, if ever, is it approriate to use the handicapped stall? The 2 normal stalls are very narrow (I think I have 3 inches of clearance from either shoulder... I sh*t you not [pun intended], and due to a wacky placement of the stall doors and restroom door, you can see right into the stall from the hallway), and whenever I visit the restroom on my floor, if someone is occupying a stall, it's always the handicapped one. I've gone to different floors because the 2 regular stalls were occupied (not to mention to escape the horrors of post-lunch egress -- I swear to Jebus that one of the guys was going to pop a blood vessel in his head), and always thought that it was the decent and proper thing to do. Am I wrong?
Curious George: To pee or not to pee. What is the proper restroom etiquette regarding the handicapped stall?
