Bathroom of Irony

Had this recurring dream again early this morning. I'm desperately searching for a bathroom to use. It always ends up being a public bathroom with many stalls, and there are always problems with it. Some of the stall doors are broken, some don't even have doors. There is water on the floor, a toilet is overflowing. People are everywhere. The place is a mess but I'm desperate. The only clean-looking toilet will inevitably have some other problem, like no privacy. People keep coming into my stall and I can't relax enough to actually go. I've already made a wreath of toilet paper to cover the suspiscious-looking seat, and someone else comes in, sits down and starts to go. I finally exclaim that I've been waiting to use the bathroom for like half an hour now and this is the only one that isn't plugged up or being used. The girl shrugs, flushes the toilet, and it overflows onto my shoes. When I finally get one of the clean, working toilets, I sit there and can't go.

I have a dream book where this is mentioned. Their idea is that in real life there is something you need to "get out" but are embarrassed of it, or just don't know how to express it and you're holding it in.
Or maybe it's just a worry that stays in the back of your mind. If you've ever frantically had to use the bathroom at a rest-stop, a KOA campground, or even at a highschool, the above dream isn't far from reality.

I guess I can just be glad that I didn't wet the bed.

I think it means that you always get what you want if you try hard enough.

And you may even get it sooner than you need!

Everyone's posting their dreams, I love it.

Is that your cat?????? Can it really pee like that?

I'll take making out with Jude Law.

Mr. Husbland - Oh, you and your positive outlooks! That's a good way of looking at it. :)

El Diablo - No, not my kitty but there's tons of info on the web about pottytraining them and I just liked the picture.

Peggasus - Yes, definitely the better option!

i've had the EXACT same dream. or i'm in a house and the only toliets are in the middle of the room where i have no privacy. or there is no paper and the plumbing isn't working.
