not too bright...
there are two cubicles in the female toilets on each floor. i went to the loo a while ago, and the first cubicle was closed. not locked, not occupied (the thingy (what's it called?) was green), just the door closed. i automatically carried on to the second cubicle. don't ask me why, could be anything that made me walk past. complete and utter laziness? could be.
i left the cubicle to find a highly pregnant woman standing there looking surprised. i couldn't quite understand what she was saying, she seemed to be switching between english and german randomly, but it sounded like she was expressing her surprise at so many people being in there at the same time. it's the top floor of the department for electrical engineering, if both cubicles had been occupied at the same time i'd have been surprised too, you don't have to wait here very often. but seriously! the door was just closed!
just now i go back again (i drink a lot of water) and the first cubicle is still closed. again i automatically head for the second one. while i'm in there, someone walks in to the loos, walks up to the two closed doors, huffs in exasperation and leaves again! wtf?
i put the first one down to random not-too-brightness (no, i didn't blame it on her being pregnant! though that might have been the reason *g*). but it happened again! what is wrong with these people?!
i couldn't resist checking when i left, just to make sure. yes, the first cubicle was unlocked and empty!
i should have closed it again ;-)
