Coz I gotta pee and I'm grumpy

Hey, the whole time I was on the train I was dying because I knew I had to write an email about this woman I got off at Oshawa with and her issues.

I was in the first coach and sitting on the main level on the train going to Oshawa that left Union at 6:18 P.M.. The bathroom was one of the larger accessible kind. Apparently lots of people had too much to drink because the bathroom was getting used more than a (omitted due to vulgarity- CJ). Know what I mean?

Then this guy goes in and this was around Rouge Hill. We're just pulling out of Ajax when the woman sitting in the two seater starts stomping her feet and slapping her book against the pole.

She's talking to anyone who will listen, including me. She's all pissed that the guy is taking to long and that she has to pee and it's making her mad. Last time I checked there were toilets in every coach. She's sitting there, crossing her legs and bouncing her legs like a complete idiot.

Some man sitting across from her suggests she use another bathroom but she shakes her head saying she shouldn't have to move.

I'm getting a little concerned myself because I'm wondering if the guy has died or either he has Crohn's and it's ridiculous this woman thinks the bathroom is her own en-suite. She even said if he was doing number 2, he should wait for the station or get off at a station.

Finally, just as we leave Whitby, the guy comes out of the washroom. Who the hell would want to go in there after that?! Especially if the guy was crunching a loaf for 20 minutes??? This woman gets up and charges into the washroom and slams the rolling door close behind her.

There was no need for such dramatics. Other people come down the stairs and a person tries to open the door and the woman insides screams at the top of her lungs: "It's occupied!" Holy crap. She comes out and makes this big production about having to pee and that it made her grumpy. Just wow.

I have seen people ride the ENTIRE way to some station past Ajax (from Union) in the bathroom before. No one has ever put on the production. They try the door, then move on when it is occupied.

If I was the poor individual in the can and I knew what was going on outside, I would have stayed in there longer. But I am disillusioned and am fighting the desire to teach people lessons the hard way.

I love you. I love how you just can't deal anymore with people's shit (pun intended).

I'm just thinking over my baked beans situation. If I'm having a moment in the bathroom, leave me be. If I were this guy, I would not have been happy to have her discuss my plumbing issues with the whole train. I can do that on my own.

I am most certain she and I would have had "words".

Who announces to strangers they have to pee???
And who shits on a GO train??? Haven't these people ever heard of "home bowl advantage"???

Squiggles said...

@lswgirl: sometimes when you gotta go, you gotta go. no waiting for home bowl. any bowl will do.

That being said, I have announced to friends I need to pee. Strangers are crossing the line.

@CJ: *Grins*

Aw c'mon, I wasn't that vulgar all I did was make reference to sailors, a lady of the night and a port.

@Squiggles - NO NO NO home bowl advantage is a must . . . there is something special about the comfort of YOUR toilet. I used to work somewhere where every morning like clockwork this one guy would grab the newspaper and you always knew you weren't going to see him for a half hour. I'll bet he had it as daily entry on his calender.

Squiggles said...

I am coming from the perspective that deals with medical/ digestive issues and when they gotta go, you find the nearest bathroom.

What that guy is just wrong. That you need to be Sheldon (Big Bang Theory) and do whatever you need to do so that you are on time.

Does the Lakeshore line really have a bathroom on every car? I know the Milton Line does not.

Squiggles said...

All the trains do. The newer cars have the ones like what is pictured above. I find that these cars are spread through out the train.

The older cars (even the vinyl ones) have broomstick closet ones that are smaller than airplane bathrooms on the middle level at one end of the coach. If it is not on your end, you know its on the other.

@James...I ride the Milton line everyday and every car has a washroom. Some are on the far west end of the car, while the newer cars have them on the first level near the east entrance doors.

Maybe it's because I'm usually on the first car but I'm rarely on a car with a bathroom or toilet closet whatever you want to call it.
