Bathroom Blogfest 2013: No hooking up in the bathroom!

If you got excited by the title of this post…get your mind out of the gutter!

This post is about one of my biggest bathroom pet peeves, broken door hooks on stall doors; or even worse, no hooks on the stall door. If you’re like me, you usually enter the public restroom bogged down with multiple bags and to your consternation enter the stall and find you either have to place your bags on the dirty floor or somehow juggle bags while doing your thing.

One day, while shopping in a mall, I took a bathroom break and to my delight found no hooks but instead an entire shelf in my stall. Thank you to the designer of this bathroom for having the foresight to build a shelf in the stall knowing that the users would be carrying shopping bags.
