Trapped in a Bathroom Stall
She went into the ladies’ room and used the handicap stall, which has a door that opens out. While she was in there, someone used the diaper-changing table on the wall and didn’t fold it back up. The table prevented the stall door from opening wide enough for her to exit. A comedy of errors.
This is not so much a tragedy but an illustration of poor design. Poor design, in this case, resulting from retrofitting a small bathroom with 1. a handicap stall, and 2. a diaper changing table. She wasn’t all that worried about getting out. It wasn’t too long before someone else came in, and even if it were, she had a phone. (via Digg)
