Uh-oh, my drink spilled.

Ok...so here's the scenario. You are at a public place with very public restrooms. Your drink has run out and you need a new one. You also need to go to the bathroom. Which do you do first?
I see this every single day and the decision is, believe it or not, to go and get a fresh new drink and then take that drink into the restroom with you to use the facilities. I just can't fathom it. These are not the crackheads nor the prostitutes. These are your everyday version of women; dressed nicely, hair done, nails done, expensive purses. Maybe they spent the day at the mall or out shopping and then came to the casino with their husbands/boyfriends/S.O.s for an evening out.
I just don't get it. And they are always totally surprised when their fresh drink falls to the ground and it breaks the glass or bottle and makes a mess. Even the plastic glasses break and the liquid always makes it way across several stalls making navigation around it almost impossible.
Where are they putting these drinks while they potty, you ask? They are sitting them on the little metal trash containers hung on the wall of the stalls. You know; the ones in which you deposit your feminine products. I have also seen them place them on the back of the toilet or try to balance them on the little edge of the seat cover box hanging on the other wall. A few have even tried to hold them in one hand while completing business with the other and instead of dropping the glass they pour the liquid on the floor because they don't remember to keep the glass upright.
Can you give me a big collective EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Maybe I've blogged about this before but each time it happens I am flabbergasted all over again. The other night the lady's drink managed to splash on my shoes and my pants leg and then spread completely across the room. It was brand new fresh and very full. It was in a plastic cup that shattered apart.

And while I'm on pet peeves about the bathrooms here is another one. The nicely dressed women with perfect make-up and hair who come out of the stalls, check their hair and pat it a little, check their make-up, freshen their lipstick, straighten their clothes and then LEAVE the bathroom without so much as thinking about washing their hands. What the heck?

Ok. done ranting now.

Those fancy ladies quite often don't flush either and they seem to think that their derriere's are to good to actually sit on the seat. They squat or something and leave a bigger mess then 20 men who don't lift the seat. Gross!!!

Oh, I know. I think if you want to pee like a man you should at least lift the seat like one.
Have you seen that new thing called the go-girl? Weirdest thing I've seen in awhile. It is a thing so girls can stand to urinate. Check it out online.
