Comfort Stalls

I was just thinking about something and it made me laugh. We are SUCH creatures of habit, aren't we? And though there are probably hundreds of thousands of examples of this fact, I just reminded myself of one as I went to the bathroom here at work.

Is it just me, or don't we all have a "usual" bathroom stall that we use? You KNOW that you do it, too. I mean sure, we can use any of the stalls that are available, barring them being completely nasty and un-flushed, that is. But we still tend to gravitate towards the same stall.

It's funny because anytime we walk into the bathroom and our one stall is occupied, it kind've stops us in our tracks for a brief second, doesn't it? We're on such autopilot that we practicaly walk into the bathroom without even looking up, but then are stopped at the sight of our stall's door closed in front of us.


Ha ha - it's just funny to me. Of course we shrug it off and move on to the cleanest stall closest to it, but just the fact that we always go the 3rd stall in (or whichever is your stall of choice) and then leave this "comfort stall" and proceed to the same particular sink everytime... it's just funny! Right?




Am I the only one with a comfort stall??

Nope, I totally have one too. Actually OD and I were talking about this at church the other day, cause we both went into the bathroom and the same time and she went into my stall...I was all, "Nooo that's my stall!" And she said, "No, it's mine...I always go here!" haha! We laughed and then I had to make my way into my secondary comfort stall. Which was clogged...and luckily I have been in this situation before, so I went to my Third comfort stall...and found relief. That's funny haha!

We're so used to going one place while we're at home...over and over and over...so it's pretty explainable why we would want to do the same thing in our other regular environments (work, school, etc.) I totally do the same thing...lol

Oh no, I have a comfort stall, heck my four year old has one at the hospital/clinic. (Wow I guess that means we're at the drs a lot!)

My comfort stall would have to be the one that is the "cleanest". I will refuse to "go" if neiter of the stalls available are "go-able". But yeah, the whole comfort stall is funny and so true.
