Ladies Room

Any woman who has waited in a long line to use the restroom can relate to this incident which happened to me at a sporting event.

GOTTA GO-GOTTA GO

Woman’s line moves at snail’s pace and stalls.
We eye each other in mirrored walls.
Shift and slosh from side to side,
Hurry lady, step aside!
Some of us prefer to hover,
Some, a tissue paper cover.
Place it on very neat.
Last lady tinkled on the seat!
Rip another, try again.
The center cut-out falls right in.
Water seeps up way too fast
No sitting now, just squat at last.
Give the single ply a jerk.
Darn the big wheel just won’t work.
Perforate a single square.
One good yank and I’m out of there.

Roll spins a streamer to the floor,
Dang thing rolls right out the door.
Attendant’s broom sweeps near and far.
She and I in a tug-of-war.

I'm telling you, it really happened!

Funny! In every public building they should always make twice the bathrooms for women as for men! How many times do you see a line to the men's room?

How appropriate--I laughed so hard I had to run to the bathroom! I think it's happened to all of us at some point, and that's what makes it even more priceless!!!
