Rant on the egregious use of the disabled stalls

I have never had much patience with people who play the disabled card, that being said now that I use a cane some of the time, I get really pissed at all the women at work that think the disabled stall in the restroom is for them. It really pisses me off when I end up doing the peepee dance while some idiot changes her clothes or is pursuing heavy meditation while speaking on the cell phone.

I’ve even asked them what their disability is and one woman just thinks that’s hilarious. Meanwhile I’m on the verge of wetting my pants. And not only do they use it when they shouldn’t but they leave it messy. I don’t want to see a used tampon dropped on the floor when you could have put it in the bin or your used tp or how the heck did pee get on the seat and on the floor?

Disabled stalls are for people who have disabilities. The seats are higher and the bars can really help when you need to have help lowering or lifting.

A disabled stall is not:

A changing room

For meditation exercises

Because you want more room

It is not a cell phone booth!

It is for people with disabilities or who are pregnant or who can’t maneuver well.

And why is it usually the little teeny short women who want to use it? It’s 2 inches higher and your feet don’t reach the ground.

If you don’t need it for what it was designed for GODDESS DAMN YOU! DON’T USE IT!

Stepping gingerly off my soap box….

  1. YES!!!
    This is one thing that really gets my panties in a twist. I have a VERY hard time using the regular stalls now.

    It is a PRIVILEGE to be able to use the REGULAR stalls! Enjoy your privilege!

  2. I agree. and IMO establishments should move the changing table OUT OF The disabled stall and into the common area. I’m a parent, and I felt really REALLY awful having to drag my abled ass, and that of my kids into the disabled stall to change my kids, then when I got out I saw a disabled person there…I felt pretty bad. 😦
