The other day I was in a shopping mall in a town here in Sweden (where I currently am to visit my family), so after some hours of mostly window-shopping I feel the need to go to the bathroom.
In most malls in Sweden you have to pay 5-10 kr($1) to use the bathroom, ridiculous yes, but yet how it is.
Arriving to the bathroom I see the door is locked, thinking to myself “sweet, now i don’t have to pay, ill just grab the door when the person comes out”
The lady in the bathroom comes out looks at me while I’m reaching for the door and purposely closes the bathroom door…
IM IN CHOCK!
Asking the lady “what are you doing?” where she responds “Its not my duty to pay for you”… wtf… I got so chocked that someone could be so cheap and my response probably confirmed that chock as it went something like “no you don’t, but come on I’m a fellow human” … after she says something like “are you?” and I went something like “what a bitch”…
I then of course paid the 5krs and went to the bathroom, the idea to pay for the bathroom here weren’t the problem… I had the money, its just such an inhumane cheap-ass thing not to hold the door for the next person..
For me its a given to hold the door for the next person, either it be entering the classroom or a bathroom stall which has a fee… I mean we are all on the same team,. at least that’s what I thought…
In the end it isn’t my karma that got hurt, and the old lady is probably locked-in in a bathroom stall somewhere now for the way she acted.. i’m still in chock and telling everyone this story because I find it so weird that a person can be like that… Is it just me?
That my friends is something that really grinds my gears.
