Last night I walked into the mens loo in a posh nightlounge in mumbai!! to say it was embarassing is putting it mildly…
See it was my first time in the place and i got confused between left and right. I took the left door into the mens loo instead of the right turn into the main lounge.Suddenly i found myself in the midst of streaming watery sounds and surprised but cocky masculine faces. Where was I? I froze- it took me a few good seconds before i realized i was in a mens loo! Eeeks! EEks EEks i started to shreik, trying to find the exit, spinning around incoherantly
Some of the peeing men smirked. Some laughed. Nobody looked emabarrased except me.
It just proved to me that men even when caught with their pants and their whatever in their hands retain their confidence.. its conditioning… There was no hiding for cover because of my horrified shreiks or my loud embarasment.. All i saw was smug smirks and some amused glances.
Only one guy had the decency to tell me that i had exited through the wrong door even while he nonchallantly continued his task-the rest looked maha amused. I ran out
A few minutes later the man who had shown me the exit in the mens loo joined his group at a table close to mine. While i tried to avert my eyes he laughed and asked me if I’m allright-raising his glass in a salute
I imagined the reverse-Imagine a man walking into a womens loo-It would have caused a furore.
Most of the women would have cowered and complained to the management and what not. The man would have probably got beaten up or even landed in jail…
For a day on our television screens it may have even made breaking news “Pervert gets beaten up for breaking into a ladies toilet…”
Phew! thank god such things dont happen to us ladies.
