For me, my first experience with which reastroom to use came about several years ago. I was dressed and shopping with other girls in a dress store when nature called. it was suggested I use the women’s room. I was not dressed appropriately for the men’s room.
I waited outside until i thought the room was empty or near empty. I went in and headed directly to a stall. I didn’t look around to see if anyone was still in there. I took care of businhess, then waited until i thought the room was empty. I walked out and left.
I knew there was some women in the rest room. I was nervous about doing this. I just didn’t make a big deal over it. I did what I needed to do and left.
