Ladies rest room etiquette question

Let's say you need to use the rest room at work, and it's one of these two-stall types of rest rooms at your office.

What happens if you need to drop a log, but when you go in there, one of the stalls is occupied?

With guys, most of the time you just sit on down, perhaps even having a conversation about sports, the weather, politics, etc. Guys will just grunt one out with someone else in the next stall. No problem.

But from what I understand, you ladies are a bit different in this area.

Discuss!

HaHa I guess Im not very ladylike. If I gotta go, then I gotta go. That's what restrooms are for. I don't go into the restroom until I have to go, so there's no way I'm holding it.

And I love that there are 5 votes, but noone wants to fess up who they are. LMAO.

You actually didn't include my tactic in your poll. I go into the stall and wait for the other person to leave before "taking a crunch" as hubby and I call it.

I work in a very large office building with over 2,000 employees. Usually I'll walk to another bathroom for some privacy. I don't want to get started with anyone in there. HOWEVER, if someone comes in once I'm sitting down, that's gonna be their problem. (I'll give the courtesy flush, though)

I ask this because the wife and I, for some stupid reason, were talking about it a while back.

She said most women, if they walk into a rest room in which someone is in the stall, will just turn around and walk out and then wait until the occupier comes out before they go in to pinch a loaf.

I don't understand why it's such a big deal. Yes, I feel more comfortable when I'm by myself, but if I'm not, it doesn't stop me if I have to go. A lot of my female friends talk all the time about having to take a crap and announce if they farted and all manner of other bathroom things, yet they won't go if someone else is in there. I don't talk about it because I find it a bit crass to discuss crapping in public, but it is a completely natural bodily function. Everyone does it, so what's the big deal?

I guess I am very in touch with my feminine side. I'd rather be alone. Of course it doesn't take me long to "do my business" either so my conversation would be,
"Hey did you see the game last night?"
"Yeah LSU put on a beat down. Vincent is the real deal."
"Sure nuff. Shared title I guess it be. Well talk to you later. Gotta get back to trying to find som ework to do."

Thing is, if I am in the restroom and I see someone go into the stall and after a few minutes I dont hear anything, then I figure the person needs to take a load off and is waiting for me to go, so, I usually make a quit exit.
As for conversations, thatís a no-no. I only do that on the john at home with the hubby.
D: Drop a log THEN run away. Honestly, it depends on how bad I have to go and if I can recognize the shoes of the person in the stall (or if mine are particularly unique).
There is NO shame in my game. I will go when I have to to do WHATEVER i have to. I will even take a can of spray as a courtesy to those going with me or coming in after me
when ya gotta go, ya gotta go. everyone poops. i do my business as normal, no matter if it's #1 or #2. no chatting though.

If you gotta go, you gotta go. I go in and do my business. If people are using the bathroom to socialize, I don't mind (no shy colon or bladder here), but realize there may be some unpleasant odors---you are in a bathroom.

i don't like dropping the kids off when someone else is in the restroom. i try to wait until they leave. sometimes i linger washing my hands first and then going into the stall and waiting for them to leave.
sometimes i got to go and i can't wait. so i do. but i try to wait in the stall until the other person has left the restroom before i exit my stall.

"E. Wait until the room is empty then drop a log"

If there are too many people in the restroom on my floor, my other tactic is to go to another floor where no one knows me. In which case I'll go with "D: Drop a log THEN run away."
Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.
