NT can be pretty mundane, so I wanted to bring up a topic near and dear to many of our hearts:

Knocking on Public Bathroom Doors.

I was in my local Starbucks, reaping the sows of my coffee in Starbuck's public bathroom.

Skipping past all the s***, I fortunately locked the door, but still had 5 people try the door handle.

What if I did not lock the door or forget and someone just barged in?

I mean before I entered, I made sure to knock on the door to see if anyone was in their.

Knocking on the door seems to be common courtesy in my mind...but maybe I have missed something.

Discuss and tell me your knocking habits.

I cringe everytime I see Kowchi is the OP.


My answer though:
I usually knock, once. If you don't hear me knocking on your door, I won't mind, I'll break the door down even if you're in.

I always knock on any closed door whatever it is.. But I try not to go to public bathrooms unless it is very urgent or I am travelling, etc..

As if I need permission from some beta to use the toilet just because he got there first.

I never touch anything related to public bathrooms, including doors and stuff.

I shoot and then ask questions later. By public bathroom, do you mean the men's or women's room?

I don't knock. You should lock the door.
If you didn't it's probably worse for me (what I had to see) than for you (assuming you're just doing what one is supposed to be doing in a washroom). :shrug:

If it's a single-person bathroom (one room, one toilet, no stalls -- pretty much like what you'd have at home), it shouldn't matter if it's men's or women's. I just ignore those signs on the door. If only one person at a time is in the room, what is the sense of designating one men's and another women's?? :confused: Total nonsense.

0 knocks m8.

If you forget to lock the door, then it's your fault.

I must mention that I have never walked in on someone defecating (a few times I have on someone letting the yellow river flow), and I fully intend to keep this streak in tact.

Starbuck's coffee needs to not go through my system so fast.

Has a firehouse effect that no man can conquer.

And I lock the door every time, for those pointing fingers.

never seen one that doesn't have any signage whether occupied or free..

And would never get how on earth would anyone be in such a place without locking the door.

It doesn't really happen in my world..

Had a traumatising experience at school once, where I just barged in and found some kid on the bog, who instantly started wailing.

That wasn't the traumatic part though. Having to write lines on the board about bog etiquette was the traumatic part.

These days I knock and if there's no reply, I check for shoes underneath, before going in. Bog etiquette can kiss my toilet seat.

I open the door very slowly so that anyone in there has the chance to shout. Providing they aren't concentrating too hard on something else...
This.

"Cautious entry" is my motto.

Situational awareness is also important, because if you are drinking the coffee in the store, you ought to know, by the time it passes through you, whether the bathroom is occupied.
