So, I recently moved into a new dorm building for various and unimportant reasons. This lead to me having to learn the ins and outs of a new building like a freshman, except now I was surrounded by people who had lived there for at least a month. About an hour after moving in, I really had to pee, so naturally I went out into the hall looking for a sign with the expressionless skirted stick figure. Which did not seem to exist on my floor. I did find a door labeled “Fire Escape” so that’s good. At least I won’t die from that. But, back to the story, I went down stairs to the second floor to see if that was were the bathroom was. It turns out that was an all guys floor, so back up to the third floor I went. Then, I wandered feeling as though my bladder would explode at any moment, until I ran into a fellow resident outside of the fire escape.
“Excuse me, I just moved in, where’s the restroom?”
The girl looked at me like I was insane. Maybe she hadn’t heard me so I asked again.
“I just moved in, and I haven’t really found anything yet, Can you tell me where the restroom is?”
“Right there,” she said slowly as if maybe I was stupid. I looked around and the only door I could see was the fire escape. So, panicking over the amount of social interaction I had already gone through, I just said thank you as politely as I could and waited for her to leave. Then, I opened the door labeled “Fire Escape” and it was the bathroom. Why is the bathroom labeled “Fire Escape”? I secretly hope that this was a Dys-adventure and the door really says Ladies Bathroom, just for the sake of sanity.
