Please, let me use your bathroom!
December 28, 2012
OnDec. 27th, at noon, after having lunch downtown, I was on my way back. I decided to go to MIIS library to check out a book. I had no idea that the library was closed. When I was near the library, I got such a feeling in my tummy that I almost shit in my pants. I hurriedly parked my bike on the library parking lot and feeling I had no time to enter the library to use the bathroom there, I RAN to the bathroom next to the student center. After I finished, I came out, only to see a security guy waiting to catch me there in front of the bathroom. I, as a non MIIS faculty and staff and student, can only use their library, nothing else. I learned this from this guy about 1 and half years ago, so he and I are not strangers to each other.
Seeing me, this guy made such a facial expression and gesture that he was literally saying " I caught you!!!". I said I had to use the bathroom. I could not hold it. He said there were so many public bathrooms. OK, dear big guy, tell me where? The nearest one is in Trader Joe's and it is not public. It belongs to Trader Joe's. There is a public one at the airbus stop, but I did not have that urgency there. It so happened that I almost shit right at the library parking lot. There is no public bathroom near that place except the one I used.
My question is: Is MIIS so stingy that it will rather let a pedestrain shit in his pants on it's property than let him/her use one of its bathrooms?
Although this guy was expercising his power and carrying out his duty, his behavior has created such an image of MIIS that MIIS, if possible, would rather be a community UN-friendly institution than let one drop of its water be spilled over the head of a non-MIIS person.
Maybe the guy was thinking I was using the bathroom like a spa and enjoying sitting there forever.
