However I had a funny experience on Monday at work. It's funny now but wasn't at the time. I got locked in the disabled toilet at the airport at work. The reason why I was in the disabled toilet was because the ladies toilet had no toilet paper in it. I went to get out and the door would not open. The lock mechanism had come loose when I locked it.
So panic stations set in, I looked at the manhole up above and knew I could not reach it to be able to crawl out, so what do I do next.
Luckily the door gap at the bottom had a 3cm gap. I could not call out as there was a second door outside that was really thick and no one would have heard me. So I wrote on the toilet paper and shoved it under the door. It was very lucky that I had a pen with me.
The paper bunched up and went nowhere, so I threaded the pen to the end of the toilet paper and threw as far as I could and held onto the other end so it would stretch out and be readable.
I then sat down and crossed my legs and proceeded to meditate to calm my nerves down as I could feel my heart racing from anxiety and not knowing if anyone would come around for awhile.
About 30 mins later I heard a male voice ask "Are you still in there?" I could barely hear him because by then I was deep in meditation and was really relaxed. He asked me who he could call so I told him to go to the closest Office outside and let them know I was in here. A few minutes later I heard a co-worker call my name and a fit of giggles ensued. To which I replied "stop laughing, its so embarrassing". They were laughing at all the toilet paper I had shoved out from under the door. I thought that if I made it look very messy someone would take notice.
From now on my mobile phone stays in my pocket.
Hopefully next week I would have made a lot more progress with my unpacking.
EDITED: 12July, due to a few comments about me using the disabled toilet, I must add that I was in the staff toilets, and we don't have any disabled workers so the disabled toilets are used by either male of female if the normal toilets are used as there is only 1 male and 1 female toilet to cater for about 100 staff. This day there was no toilet paper in the ladies toilet so its the only time I use the disabled one.
Run on over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what other crafters are up to.
