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.
WHEN WERE YOU LAST IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME?
