On Friday a lightbulb went off, and I discovered something that I probably should have identified long ago. The evidence has been staring me in the face for as long as I can remember–since I was a little girl, really. And now, I think I can say with some authority that I have discovered the most challenging job in America.
Are you ready for it? It will definitely surprise you, and I encourage you to do some fact-checking of your own. We should all understand the difficulties involved and recognize the challenges involved in this job.
So…I give you, THE MOST CHALLENGING JOB IN AMERICA…
Installing the bathroom stalls in women’s restrooms so that the doors not only close and lock, but provide a modicum of privacy as well.
Honestly, I wouldn’t have imagined this would be so hard, but clearly it is, as I can hardly travel anywhere in this city (not mention the rest of the U.S.) where I can close the door to a public restroom stall and think, Well done! Not only was brute force not necessary to get this door closed, but I don’t have a two-inch sliver view of the entire restroom (and I’m not giving a 2″ peep show either!)
So I salute you women’s bathroom contractors! Clearly you are doing the best you can in an environment fraught with uncertainty. The only advice I can offer you…maybe buy a tape measure or draw up some plans. Or continue on with the haphazard method of old. I trust you’ll make the right call, and I look forward to reviewing your work in future public restrooms.
