FML - The follow-up
fordneagles Say more :
Hey guys, I'm the OP, for those worried about the grossness of the floor, the cleaners had just been in (the wet floor sign was still there), so I just took off the other sandal and looked a bit of a bogan, but better than replacing everything in my wallet! And for the record, my bag was not on the floor, it was resting on my (previously sandalled) feet. I've never noticed any hooks in the stalls, but then I've never expected someone to try and nick my bag either.

Better than your bag!:) Be glad you escaped with only one shoe stolen and not your bag, still rotten of a person to do though. And you got enough common sense to hold your bag even at places like that, so cheers:)

It's stll much better, #30. Washing your foot, or even hopping on one foot, is a lot easier than cancelling credit cards, closing bank accounts, issuing credit fraud alerts, getting new identification, getting locks changed, etc. Wrap some paper around your foot and check the bins. The thief may have chucked the shoe there.

30 - Get your wallet or purse stolen then come back and tell us which is worse. I've had A credit card stolen and that was a lot worse than a stupid shoe and having to walk in the floor. It's not like you're going to lick your foot afterwards (I hope). I can't imagine how horrible it'd be losing my whole purse.

Obviously, lil, you've never had one stolen. Even turning the card off, the charges made immediately after it is stolen (thieves use them right away) have to be disputed. It is a huge pain. I would rather have my shoe stolen any day!

Honestly i think it would have been best to finish your business quickly and inform the security or a worker of what transpired and wait outside the restroom for the thief, if the thief already ran away (best option for the thief, but there are plenty of dumb criminals) it would still be worth telling a worker of the restaurant or where ever you were, maybe they would reimburse you for your lost shoe.

It could have been worse. I've heard before that a woman has had her Achilles Tendon cut clean through by someone reaching under just so they could steal her bag. Consider yourself lucky OP.

If the hooks are high on the inside of the door and the thief is moderately tall then it's fairly easy to reach over and grab it off the hook. That's why a lot of new places put the hook lower or on the side now.

55 - Some places don't do the side hooks because people knock into them which rips them off the wall eventually, they get snagged on them, or their clothing gets snagged on them. The ones behind the door are less likely to have those issues. I agree with the person who said put them over the back of the toilet; that makes the most sense to me.

@123. Do you have any idea how disgusting the walls behind the toilet are? Side hooks or lower hooks on the stall are probably your best bet. Not that those surfaces are particularly clean either.

LoL. I guess you have heard about the bathroom gangs that roam from men's room to men's room. You never know when they will strike. Not only do they leave phone numbers about supposed good times to be had, they never come true. They also make fart noises when you are trying to focus.

Today, I tried to steal someone's shoe in the stall next to me. I didn't realize they held the Olympic gold medal for pissing, cause she managed to pee in my hand. FML YDI level: thru the roof

I am a woman and I know what they need their bags for. I always just take what I need from it and hang it up. It's literally inches away from you. It's not like the door is ten feet from the toilet.

10- Maybe there were no hooks, or maybe OP isn't a germophobic pussy like a lot of the people here. You don't lick your purse, sniff your purse, rub your purse all over your face and if you regularly use hand sanitizer, you'll be fine.

Reply

It's the same as setting your phone on the nasty floor. You carry your purse EVERYWHERE. You come home and set it on the counter, maybe the one you make food on. So oops, now you ingested whatever germs you've been in contact with. Try again.

Plus, you shouldn't excessively use hand sanitizer. The alcohol will dry out your hands and cause cracks in the skin that allows bacteria in. When you over use hand sanitizer for no reason, you're doing more harm than good.

87 - You don't wash your counter before preparing food on it? That's a lot more nasty than putting your purse on the floor. The stuff you prepare on the counter you KNOW will wind up in your mouth; with a purse, the odds are significantly less.
