Step 1: Don't panic Your worst enemy is fear-induced paralysis. If you're the one whose privacy has just been mercilessly trampled upon, cover thyself. Step 2: Act promptly If you're the careless intruder, leave immediately; the other party has nowhere to go. Tip Close the door as you scurry away. There are few things worse than compounding a walk-in with a door left ajar. Step 3: Secure the area Find your own stall, lock the door to avoid a retaliatory attack, and do your business. Before exiting, take a few deep breaths, and prepare to pretend like nothing happened. Step 4: Avoid contact Avoid all contact with each other. Resist the urge to apologize or make light of the situation, as this will only make things worse. Remember: The encounter never occurred. Step 5: Learn your lesson Learn your lesson. Before entering any bathroom, knock forcefully and take a moment to listen before you proceed. If someone knocks on your stall, shout back firmly, "Occupied!" Anything less could leave you in the hot seat. Did You Know? A study found that 37 percent of people close the bathroom door even when they're home alone.
