This is a fear causer that frequents my life

I know, KNOW, and am certain, positive and certain that if I use the handicap stall in the bathroom, a person in a wheelchair is going to come in, have to go super bad, and not have anywhere to go because I am manning the stall. They will sit there, and when I walk out they will stare at me, then look at all the other empty regular stalls, and look back and forth and back and forth, getting angrier and angrier (meanwhile I just stand there with an awkward look on my face, really just concentrating on trying to remember if I zipped up my fly), and then they will yell at me about how insensitive I am, and proceed to beat me with a cane.

I honestly have this visual every time I consider using the handicap stall, whether it be because the others are taken, or because their previous occupants forgot to do jumping jacks in the stall before they left to trigger the motion sensor flusher thingies.

So I wait, or flush first.

Then, during my stay in my stall, I ALWAYS contemplate the fact that people in wheel chairs do not in fact carry canes.

Ehh...I do it all the time. I figure handicap stall are like handicap ramps...they are there for the convenience of handicapped individuals, but everyone can use them. I mean, why can't they wait until you come out? Besides--the little stalls make me claustraphobic. Phobia is a handicap, no?

And for the record, I did once come out of a stall and there was a handicapped person waiting...and they did not beat me with a cane. (They did glare a little, but I survived. And I still use the handicap ones..,)

Never Fear...you are NOT alone in this dilemma. I seriously have the exact same thoughts running through my head every time.

I do the same thing. I never use the handicap stall unless I can help it.

I like the handicap stalls better because the toilets are up higher. I use them all the time and think the SAME thing...however last semester I had a girl in 2 of my classes that I know that is in a wheel chair and EVERY time I went to the bathroom and used the handicap stall she was waiting for me to be done....oh man, I am sure one day it will happen!

I always have that fear too. but usually it is because I always do use that stall. I drink way too much water which means I usually don't have much waiting time- when it's time to go, I go so.... if that is the only spot open I go for it and figure I can get yelled at afterword. Either that, or someone gets to clean up the floor from me wetting my pants :)
