Today, I had to stop at a gas station to go to the bathroom. A sign on the door told people to knock since the door didn't lock. As I was peeing, a lady walked in on me. Rather than simply saying sorry and shutting the damn door, she opened it wider and stepped in to apologize. FML

True, I'd blame the owners. It takes about a minute to fit a little bolt. If it's like petrol (gas) stations here, a lot sell odds and ends so may even have them in stock.

Maybe she didn't know what to do in this situation. Of course it would've been fine to shut the door and just leave, to apologize in front of a peeing man is only making the matter worse. Fyl OP.

I don't think it was a peeing man. Maybe a pooping man. But my money is on OP being a woman.

Almost all places in U.S. have 2 different restrooms. And what kinda guy is gonna be worried about the rest of the store (potentially) seeing the side of his junk if he's peeing?

No matter OP's gender, they had to be sitting.

Yeah. My bad. I totally didn't read the peeing part. Just waking up. But I was trying to say they probably do have 2 different bathrooms for both sexes. My money is definitely on OP being a woman then.

I'm assuming 13 meant that if she couldn't speak English, she wouldn't have been able to read the 'knock first/lock's broken' sign on the door-- which would explain the woman's behavior. Except that the woman did apologize, so it's a safe assumption she did speak some English.

on top of that, even someone who didn't speak English should be able to just do a hand gesture to apologise without opening the door further
