But how come?

Life has presented me with many an enigma that I just let slide… I file it under “I’m never gonna figure this out” and move on. I feel it’s time to address at least one of these mysteries because it’s been taken to a new level.

Why, oh why, oh why do they build bathroom stalls so that when locked and shut there is a huge gap between the door and the side of the stall? A gap through which the person inside the stall can peer out and also through which a person not in the stall can glance in. I’m not sure which of these is worse, but neither are good.

I mention this today because at New Job the mysterious stall gap is of epic proportions in each and every stall and the overhead lights buzz at a deafening level. I can only conclude that “they,” the boss people at New Job, do not want “us,” the worker bees of New Job to hang out in the bathroom. At this point I’d like to add that I personally spend as little time in public stall-style bathrooms as possible. I don’t get it when people spend time checking themselves out in the mirror near the many public toilets (ew) or apply makeup (ew ew) or BRUSH THEIR TEETH (EEEEWWWWWW). It’s just that while I am in there, I wouldn’t mind if there was little to no buzzing and definitely no peering or glancing coming from any direction. Please?
