Give a little space
“No crowding,” shares Sharon Schweitzer, an etiquette expert. “In a multiple stall bathroom, don’t choose a stall immediately next to one in use. Sound a little extreme? It’s not. Taking care of private business in a public bathroom is unnerving when a stranger insists on crowding what little privacy is available in a stall.”
Hands off the handicapped stall
No, unless you’re genuinely handicapped. “Avoid using the handicapped stall unless you are entitled to do so,” explains Schweitzer. You never know if someone will need it after you’ve made your way in, and you wouldn’t want to be on the wrong end of that faux pas.
