Men's bathroom

I am out at a show tonight. During the intermission I go hit the men's bathroom. No line, plenty of space. The women's? Long line.

While in the men's I hear someone say "I bet there are free stalls in the men's bathroom".

Next thing you know there is a stream of women in the bathroom. Guys at urinals, women in the stalls.

I love Seattle :)

When I lived in Virginia, I was in Washington DC once touring the memorials and we were at the Jefferson Memorial. There was a loooong line to the womens room and I stood in it for about 20 minutes. No line to the mens. There was a lot of grumbling, but no one made a dash for the mens. The reason? The week before in DC, a woman had been arrested for relieving herself in a mens room because of a huge long line to the womens. I guess there's an ordinance of some sort prohibiting people from using opposite sex restrooms. I'm sure there were good intentions in passing this, but wasn't being inforced as intended. Too bad. :(

i went to school back in the 80's at Fairhaven College (a liberal arts, no grades, college inside of Western Washington University)... and the whole place was like that. WWU was pretty normal in terms of how "things are done"... walk the 1/4 mile to the Fairhaven buildings and it was like a trip back to the late 60's-early 70's. Heck, a few years before i went there they actually had a for-credit class on "Self Love." Sometimes i miss being 16 and exploring the world.

Then i remember the body odor.

Ok... that had little to do with sharing bathrooms, other than we did that, too. :)

What is it about crunchy granola dippy hippies, and regular showers?

One would think that lots of soap and hot water would line right up with "self love" and "dont lay your trip on your neighbor" and such stuff...

One woman announced a statement such as that as she entered the bathroom :)

Hi Brian. I'm curious: what is "Seattle" about this?

Cheers,

There is a certain attitude that is in the city of non-conformity. Its like going to the Opera and noticing people are wearing jeans. Its non-sense for one bathroom to get almost no usage and the other one to have a line.

I've not been to many parts of the world where people would feel comfortable just doing something like this (and see a previous commentary on experience in DC).

This is certainly characteristic of certain performers, for various reasons. At various shows where men are badly outnumbered, all bathrooms become women's bathrooms. Seeing the Grateful Dead, bathrooms became unisex as an expression of the general anarchy of the show.
