Communal bathroom conundrum.

When, as a Bed and Breakfast guest, I walked in on a poor old hippy bitty in the middle of her morning constitutional, was it my fault for not knocking, or her fault for not bothering to lock the door and thereby failing to switch the "vacant" indicator to "occupied"?

Um. Closed doors mean knock! Anyone around me please take note. Nobody wants any unexpected surprises. I'm known for doing oddball things when not in the presence of the all-judgemental eye.

Poor woman and her morning constitutional.

Unlocked doors are an invitation!

Haven't you seen The Shining?

Yeah, poor woman. I'll tell you what though, she learned how to use the "vacant/occupied" thingee about two microseconds after I closed the door.

True Story: Similar thing happened to me last week. I thought I had hit the door lock on the bathroom door but apparently not enough to engage it. Anyway, I'm doin my thing when someone just walks right on in. No knock, no announcement, just an open door and hasty "oops!". I barely had enough time to get "Occupied!" out beforehand. Now it just makes me check the lock before the deed.

Eh, not like there's anything eerily different about my poop, or the way I do it. Knock if you want, come on if if you want: whatever.
