Daily Aggravation 16: Bathroom doors with no locks

Maybe it’s the product of having grown up in a house where things like ‘modesty,’ ‘privacy’ and ‘not being walked in on while you’re on the toilet’ were important, but I really don’t understand people who don’t have locks on their bathroom doors. There are few things more upsetting to a person with an already-shy bladder than going into someone’s bathroom and realizing that someone could fling the door open at any time (in my anxiety-driven imagination, it’s always a theatrical and startling ‘fling,’ never a cautious knock or slight twist of the knob). If I agree to come to your house, you’d better have a lock on the bathroom door, and if you don’t, please warn me in advance so I can flake on hanging out with you.
