I'm so wary of the bathrooms on airplanes after I saw you can unlock them from outside. And this proves my fears are justified.

Did he not see the red door symbol thing?? Maybe he really had to go.. Either way that sucks op...

Well he definitely saw the red door, regardless.

He couldn't go no matter how bad he wanted if someone is already in the stall...

It's not like if he entering the occupied stall would make a difference.

He just doesn't have decency that's all

Maybe he didn't realize, I tend to zone out on planes because I get pretty nervous on them, and I stop paying attention, he probably just said oops and left.

I'm convinced most people don't know how to knock on the door anymore.

True. I realllllly hate when you knock and the person doesn't say anything. WHY DO THEY DO THAT!?

If a bathroom door is fully closed, I always knock. I mean, does that not make sense? Wouldn't you rather take the 2seconds to knock and make sure no one is in there, rather than risking walking in on someone. I grew up with the rule, when a door is completely closed, it means the room is occupied, and you shouldn't just barge in without giving a warning.

Yeah, makes sense.

I never had that rule and wouldn't think of knocking doors at my house were almost always kept shut.

My grandpa was the one who installed this rule into me, "closed door, especially with the light on = occupied. Door open = obviously free." When I was little, I would actually get upset if someone violated this rule lol. It still just makes the most sense to me, why do you need to close a door behind you if no one is using the room? Just creates confusion.

#11 I have to keep my bathroom door shut at all times to keep my cats and dog from digging in the trash or drinking out the toilet. So our rule is if the door's closes but the light's on, occupied, if the light's off, unoccupied. We make sure our guests are aware of it as well.

Ok, I understand that #18, but at least you make everyone aware of this. I still say when you're out in a public place though, or a different house where rules haven't been specified, if a door is closed, always best to knock and make sure.

Of course. That's just common sense. Unfortunately though, there seems to be a huge lack of it in today's society.

I call it the "common sense gene" (abbreviated as csg) which is distributed at no cost by the Brainworm Distribution Factory of the Cranial Production System. It even comes with a lifetime replacement warranty for those who damage the part, say by indulging in too many drugs or alcohol...unfortunately not all beings take advantage of such a life-saving device therefor many of those lacking the csg are likely to be smacked in the forehead followed by the notorious "you should have had a V8" exclamation.

People need to learn to knock before entering bathrooms

The look on both your faces would've been priceless

shit that sucks, I'm sorry.

Luckily I knew beforehand but coming back from India with sufficient India guts to almost get me hospitalised I almost had someone enter while I was swapping sides

No idea what that means

Was that English?

DID you just assume my gender??
