I was at a concert in a stadium in DC. The staff was all smiles in the beginning, but later...
I had to leave early to catch the last train. Since I've never been there, I looked for someone in uniform.
A lady in her 50s with a spider leg hairdo stared at me. She was in uniform so I asked where's the exit.
"Bathrooms to your left ma'am."
No, no where's the--
"To your left mam. Bathrooms."
I said, where's--
"Turn around, bathrooms are there."
Over and over and over until I said
"Not bathrooms, exit!" quickly before she interrupts.
"Left-"
"Exit, exit exit!"
Finally she blinked. "Oh, down the stairs. Mam."
Thank you.
Anyway happy new year! :drink: responsibly. :D

And she'll swear you said "bathroom" when you first talked to her. Dang those sucky customers! ;)

Okay, everyone keeps saying that we need a like button... I'll just say, I'm happy we don't have one. On boards which do, it becomes a popularity contest to see how many likes a post can get. I understand that people want an easy way to agree without posting, but no like button!

Besides, I enjoy reading some of the clever quips post responders come up with. You don't get those if you just click "Like". :)

The board supports it -- well, ratings, anyway -- but we only have them implemented in the special Art, Literary, Games, and Jokes fora.

We don't have it for the others, basically because we want this to be a place where people can post/vent without being "judged" by Likes (or the absence of them, or Dislikes) -- it's not meant to be a popularity thing, more commisseration about our often-shared troubles ^_^

Thanks, I didn't want to say anything because people are only being nice by saying that they want the like button, and I don't want to bring anyone down. (Not you either, Sapphire!) But I felt I needed to just in case, and I'll shut up about it now.

Back to the OP... Assuming is bad, even though the previous zillion people probably were asking for the bathroom it doesn't mean it's okay to interrupt or not listen...

What's really sad is that just about everyone she talked to must have asked that... more than once... for her to be stuck like that.

Besides, everybody knows the bathroom (http://youtu.be/ExViB7ArQNA?t=9s)is not on the left...

Tangent, but wtf is a spider leg hairdo? Is that the individualized dreads that are standing up like a pipe-cleaner spider from grade school?

That's a pretty darn good description of it. I've seen weird hairdos but that had to be the weirdest. I normally don't judge on looks but...lol. and she was 50ish.
Looking back I guesss she was in auto mode since so many pple asked her where the bathrooms were I guess, and so she just heard it whenever someone asked a question. Over and over. And over again. Been there done that. It was more funny than sucky.
