    I always go to the middle one, or the one that is open that has an empty one on either side. I also pull my TP before I start going, just to make sure it’s there! 🙂

    I’ve heard that the one closes to the door is usually the cleanest, since most people tend to avoid it, so that’s the one I usually go for! Unless i t’s gross, of course, in which case I look for the  next clean one.

    @hilsy85: Same here for the exact same reason.

    ETA: I’m going to laugh if it’s the most popular choice because that’s everyone’s mentality!! Maybe I’ll start to use the far one now.

    @hilsy85:  That’s what I’d heard as well.  I generally use the first partly because of that and partly because I’m lazy and it’s there.

    I go for the cleanest, whichever that may be. But perhaps this is because I’ve been living in highly populated urban areas for the past 4+ years, so public restrooms can be pretty scary, and I can’t afford to be picky about which stall. As long as it clean, I’m happy!

    I go to the first one that is clean. If it’s the first one then great, if I have to go all the way down the line then I’m usually irritated (because seriously, you can’t make it in the hole?!?!) and I just go into the first clean one.

    I have also heard that the one closest to the door is the cleanest because most people dont want to go in it so thats the one I usually go in. This does hold true most of the time but whenever that one is the cleanest I will use any one that is.

    Ok first of all Im enjoying all the bathroom related threads recently – I think its funny.

    But I am always curious as to who the women are that have terrible bathroom etiquette. Why cant you get your pee all in the toilet? If you do pee on the seat, why would you not wipe it off? If you take a bad smelling poop – spray something. If the toilet is having problems flushing, make sure that it flushes before leaving the stall!! I just dont get it really.

    I had a horrible self-defense teacher who basically yelled at all of us because he thought we weren’t doing enough for our own safety. He told us that we were supposed to choose the middle stall in case we had to crawl around to get away from someone among many, many other things, including shopping at Walmart by ourselves (and not just at night).

    I can recognize that he was a bit crazy, but I still choose the middle stall just because I figure why not. I don’t think I could actually fit under the stall doors most of the time so maybe it’s a moot point anyway, but whatever.
