We'd venture to guess that the only place weirder than a public bathroom is a public bathroom at Burning Man. That said, it's still a public bathroom, so, it sort of cancels itself out. We just tend to assume that the whole festival element makes things a whole lot worse. Man, can you imagine? Raver gear and dry toilet paper. Woof. Aside from that extreme example, even the most basic public restroom is cause for concern. Not necessarily because of cleanliness — some of them are pristine — but because you really never know who (or what) you're going to run into.
Reddit user, Stevie Wunda, posed the following question and it really got us thinking. No matter how grotesque, uninviting, or straight up scary a public bathroom is, most people are going to use it. After all, when you got to go, you got to go. Stevie asked, "What’s the weirdest thing to happen to you in a public bathroom?"
If you happen to be on a road trip across America right now, we apologize. You might want to just go in a bucket instead of pulling over. Yes, the replies are that odd.
