strictly business

it is time to address a serious subject matter here.

bathroom etiquette.

i have worked at 2 different places in the last 6 or 7 years. at both places, there is always one person* who does their make-up in the public, business bathroom on a daily basis.
when they're leaving for the day.

do you have any idea how nerve-wracking it is to do your thang in the bathroom while a co-worker is standing 3 feet from you, putting on her make-up? and the only thing that separates you from her is a 2 inch swinging door with slats in it?


if you need to 'freshen' your make-up
every day before you go home for the evening,
there's pills for that.

*both of the above-mentioned persons are librarians. weird.

I feel strongly that if you are standing at the vanity while someone is in a stall you MUST turn the water on. There has to be some sort of buffer for the person in the stall. It's the polite thing to do.

We don't have a librarian where I'm at and, funny enough, there isn't anyone doing their makeup in the bathroom.

Maybe it's a librarian disease?

Oh I totally agree. I've had people stay in the bathroom FOREVER doing their makeup. And don't you think they would feel uncomfortable?? And are they that egocentric that they think people would notice if they didnt' put on makeup at the end of the day?

PS- I'm getting a Masters of Education in School Counseling. I also graduated with a BS is Psychology. Before you go back make sure you explore all helping professions- LPCs, Counseling Doctorate, School Psychologists, and School Counselors. School Counseling gets paid the least, but from what I've done so far I've found it to be the most rewarding without the heavy problems that come with regular counseling. Its been hard but way worth it.
