Help: accidentally walked into woman's restroom at client. I am a man. I've been stuck in a stall for the last 30 minutes due to this being the busiest bathroom in the office. How do I escape?

This happened to me as well at a client where the floor is divided into 2 half's and the restrooms can be used as a passageway when trying to dash across to the other side. I just ran over to the other side when I noticed that the restroom appeared different for some reason

I've done this in the men's room at Whole Foods.

Without really looking at the sign, I went straight into the only stall, not even thinking. Bathroom is FILTHY. Then I hear male voices and I become indignant. Until realization dawns on me that I'm an utter idiot. And holy shit guys definitely need a bathroom upgrade.

Guys came in to use the urinal. Ok, I I thought, I can wait this out. But then a guy come in and apparently starts a line for the ONLY fucking stall because I heard him say, "nah man, I'm in line for the stall. " 😱

There goes my escape plan. So I wait until it's just me and that guy because I'm going to try to limit my humiliation to as few witnesses as possible. Also fuck him for trying to take a shit when it's inconvenient for me.

I walk out. He stares at me. I sheepishly shrug and said "I really had to pee and didn't lol at the sign." He starts laughing as I calmly wash my hands and wrap a paper towel around everything I have to touch to get the hell out of there. He saw me at check out and just laughed his ass off again. Which made me feel vindicated about having him wait.

Moral of the story: Get the hell out as quickly as can. The longer you wait, the creepier it seems. And look properly chagrined. Also damn, men's bathrooms are awful.

In a totally separate but (maybe?) related story, someone pooped in the hall at the client today. Just couldn't hold it. Strong effort followed by janitorial staff with carpet cleaner.

My team is setting up weekly calls at 9:30pm and 10pm in the just because the onshore SM ain't free before they're also saying me to attend the calls that client has scheduled in the night. I really don't wanna attend these calls. It's my personal time . Please advice on how to convey this.
