Bathroom Story

In celebration of an undefeated regular season, my ultimate frisbee team went to Rio Grande CafĂ©, a local Mexican chain, last night for food and drinks. I wish I could take credit for leading my team to victory, but in reality, I’m just lucky to be on a really good team. Anyway, after finishing my manly frozen strawberry margarita, I went to the restroom to relieve myself. As I washed my hands, I noticed someone come out of the stall, walk behind me and immediately exit the restroom. This person was a woman! I couldn’t tell if she was surprised to see me or even embarrassed. She just quickly exited the restroom, barely made eye contact and did not wash her hands. My initial reaction was maybe I was in the wrong place. However, while I have never been in the women's restroom at Rio Grande, I’m pretty sure that they don’t have urinals. Even when I left the restroom, I double-checked that the door said men (well, it was in Spanish so that could be confusing for some people – like me), but clearly the character on the door was a guy.

I don’t have a punch line here but am just wondering if there is something I should have said/done and has this ever happened to you?

Yeah, this happened to me once. But it was somewhere where there was a really long line for the ladies' room, so some woman just snuck into the men's room instead. Can you blame her?

You know, I did have that margarita, so it's possible that I couldn't see clearly, but I really don't think that the lady was a man (baby!).

Andy - That situation makes sense. In this case, there was no line at the Rio Grande at 9:45 on a Tuesday night.
