For those of you who are unaware, I have a phobia of public bathrooms. I will wait until the absolute last minute if I am faced with having to use a public bathroom in the hopes of being able to gain access to a non-public bathroom of some sorts. Or, at the very least, a non-nasty public bathroom. Like, a hotel bathroom, or a nicer department store bathroom. basically, any bathroom that is not a rest stop or gas station.
So, Saturday I was in Reno with some friends and we're walking down Virgina Street when I have to go to the bathroom. Bad. Cannot hold out any longer. However, theres a casino right there. Casinos are generally kept up decently, right?
Well, as soon as we walk into the bathroom, I felt uneasy.
It was like a rest stop bathroom in that there was toilet paper all over the floor, some of the stall door hinges were broken, etc. Actually, I've seen rest stop bathrooms that were better maintained.
Knowing that my phobia is completely irrational I talked myself into going into a stall rather than walking out (internal dialogue - I'm not so crazy that I talk outloud). I went into the stall & pulled out one of those butt protector sheets. As I pulled the sheet out...... BUGS FLEW OUT!!! THATS RIGHT. BUGS. FLEW. OUT. OF. THE. BUTT. SHEETS!!!!!
Somehow I managed to not have a fit in the middle of the bathroom.
