"Well, so what is the bathroom of the future going to look like then? Urinals with guys pissing and women walking by to go into a stall? "
Very frequent occurance in France.
The first time it happened to me, a lady casually walked in through the door wearing a fur coat and holding a miniature poodle in her arms.
"Pardon", she said as she passed. She then went into a stall and lots of shuffling ensued. I tried not to listen.
The worst one was a French motorway loo, where the urinal was right next to the door, on the wall adjacent to the door handle.
I hadn't realised it was a multiloo, and had just got into my flow when the door opened and a woman walked past.
The door swung halfway back and stuck wide open, leaving me to pee facing slightly side on to a group of women standing and chatting about six feet away in the coffee bar.
Not exactly my most comfortable moment.
