Riddle Me This…

Why is it that I find food in the ladies’ room almost every night I clean it?

While this may be a throne, it is not a place to eat.

I’ve found crackers, rib bones, celery, carrot sticks, French fries and garlic toast in the ladies’ room.

Seriously.  WTF is going on?

The crackers gave me pause since they were scattered around one of the toilets.  Who sits on the can and nibbles a cracker?

I find most of the other items on the sink counter, but even that is strange.  Who takes food with them to the restroom?

The celery and carrot sticks could be useful to purge after all that binge eating, and judging from the looks of the toilet most nights, we have a lot of binge and purge eaters.  Now that I’m thinking about it, I suppose a rib bone could serve the same purpose.  The French fries are too limp and wiggly to be any use at all.

So that means there is no reason to have French fries, garlic toast or crackers in the restroom. 

Do women continue to stuff their faces even when they are in the shitter?  Are women’s lives so hectic that they have to eat and get rid of it at the same time?  Can anyone say, “airborne bacteria?”  I have a hard enough time breathing in a public restroom, there is no way I’m going to eat something while I’m in there.

Just to clarify here, the dining room is for eating, the restroom is not.

    I honestly didn’t know that “the dining room is for eating, the restroom is not” was a lesson that wasn’t a given. I might eat dinner while my kids are in the bath, but I never tinkle and eat! And in a restaurant…maybe your toilet paper isn’t absorbant enough and that’s why they need the bread? maybe you should consider switching brands…and as for the rib bones- I shudder to think what women are doing with them in the bathroom (beef ribs that is- pork ribs are too small!) 🙂

    Oh my abs hurt and you are killing me with laughter. I use our toilet paper and I think it’s just fine. With bread you have all those crumbs. I also don’t think too hard about the rib bones in the bathroom. Maybe it’s a subliminal message…

    Rib bones?

    I would suspect fellow workers…or ladies who really want to appear to be “ladies” in the dining area.

    HAHAHA! In that case they should take their entire plate in with them.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I am trying to picture a woman squatting on the toilet….gnawing away on a rib bone! 🙂

    It makes me want to gouge out my eyes.

    That’s just nasty. And wrong on so many levels. *shudder*

    I second that.

    And people try to tell me that women are cleaner in the washroom. Heck no! I’ve never seen food in the men’s room.

    No matter how bad the men’s room is, the ladies’ room is always worse.

    They’re probably dining in the bathroom because they read the blog entry about the old man pooping in the dining room.

    Uh…it’s still wrong.

    And guys get teased for reading in the can!

    I’d much rather find a newspaper in the can than food.

    That’s truly bizarre. Public restrooms are so gross!

    (been reading for quite some time now… finally thought I should start commenting, your blog puts my fiance and I in stitches, and we thank you for it)


    Well, thank you! Glad you commented.

    It’s one thing to be eating something when you wander into your own bathroom, it’s disgusting beyond words to eat in a public restroom. Worse still are the women who put their purse on the restroom floor then plop them on the table. Anyone for a side of feces? Barf.

    I found crackers again in the ladies’ room tonight. o_O

    Maybe they have anorexia and want to pretend to the others on the table that they have eaten everything?

    I thought of that. Maybe they could add OCD to their anorexia and throw the food in the trash can rather than litter it around the restroom.

    Thanks for stopping by & taking the time to comment!
