Ahem. You Are In The Wrong Place


Enroute to a doctor appointment at the eye center in a big box store, I decided to make a quick run into the powder room.

Almost on the way out of there, while standing in front of the mirrors above the sinks, the door opened and a man walked in.

His face showed complete shock when he saw me standing there, fluffing my "hairdo".

I just gasped.

"You are in the wrong place," he said. 


"Really?  The wrong place?" I replied.  "Oh well."  

The old fellow's expression reflected frozen shock as I whizzed past him as fast as my feet would go.

Sure enough. I had used the men's rest room.

"Good thing I'm on the way to the eye doctor's,"  I told myself, chortling all the way. 

Honestly, I couldn't stop laughing and the receptionist probably thought I was slightly nuts.

As for the old gent, I hope he got over the shock okay. Didn't mean to startle the ol' fella.  

I'd be willing to bet he had a lot to say about his afternoon trip to the men's room.

Funny! I can laugh because I've done the same thing. I swore the ladies room was on the left. When I walked in the men's room, the Oriental gent looked as stunned as I did. Luckily he had his back to me.

Oh my goodness Susan! I am still chuckling but I bet you were embarrassed. I haven't done that-yet! Sometimes it is hard to figure out which is which when they use "cute" graphics.
Bless your heart.
