A friend recently saw this bathroom sign in Utah; we agree that the imagery and wording for the sighted are pretty great. But what does the Braille say? Looks like the letters are ??WOME -- but transliterating doesn't really help me understand the text. I couldn't find anything similar on these ADA bathroom signs. Help?
Often when I go to urinate - whether in a public or private restroom/toilet/bathroom - if there's someone within hearing distance, I can't go (i.e. urinate) until they've left and I'm alone. I end up standing there as if I'm confused about what I'm there for, no matter how badly I needed to go only seconds earlier. How can I overcome this apparent anxiety? Any tips or tricks for uninhibiting whatever it is that's causing my body to tense up? [more inside]

Many times in my various workplaces, I've noticed people "nesting" in the ladies restroom. By this I mean, using one of those papery toilet seat covers before sitting down. Most of these incidents involve a restroom that is spotless, and sometimes it was only used by a few people. I'm of the mind that using these things is if anything, less sanitary, as it increases the chance of (*ahem*) fluids getting on the seat. I can't find any info either way - your thoughts?
