man running from public restroom

The other day I was at Walmart and I saw something unusual.  There was a man running out of the bathroom.  I’m not talking about just walking fast — he was literally running.  I’ve seen people run into a bathroom, and there are obvious reasons for that (though a dubious strategy, in my opinion).  But it seemed odd to see something actually running from the bathroom.  I was scared to go in…  I mean, it’s scary enough to have to use a public restroom, but in this scenario something could’ve went horribly wrong.  What if you walk up on something like this abused toilet?  Would you really want to experience that?  Sure, to some of you who like gross stuff, it would make for a great story.  But keep in mind that seeing that picture is a LOT different from actually walking up to it in person.  (And don’t say I never mentioned the smell!  That might cause problems before you could escape…)

If this has piqued your curiosity and you want to know “the rest of the story”, then I have to apologize, because I did not find out why this happened.  I didn’t want to investigate, and I figure it’s better not to talk to a stranger who is running from a public restroom…  I haven’t learned that from experience, but it just seems like good sense.  However, I have learned that sometimes it’s better to just not know…

Feel free to speculate in the comments, if you must…
