3 Types of People & JULY GIVEAWAY

Custom embroidered logo c/o The Snugly Duckling

With all my sap lately, I thought I'd bring a little humor to today's post.

The way I see it, there are three types of people in the world.

And for this example, I'm going to refer to some common toilet talk.
I'm sure you'll understand... and forgive me.

In reference to seeing if the stalls are occupied in public restrooms:

Type 1: Those who peek under the stall to check for feet or lightly knock on the door (in the case that you can't see under)
Type 2: Those who walk right up and push the door, or just go ahead and try the handle. This type may also jiggle the handle or twist the knob multiple times to be sure.
Type 3: Those who simply decline to use public restrooms at all.

I am a Type 1 to a T. I was always taught to knock before entering. I always get caught questioning "Hellooooooo?" outside of the stall.

Type 2's? Ugh. There's nothing like trying to just get it over with and then all of a sudden someone is rattling your door handle. However, I have no negative feelings for these people... I still love you. Even the lady who walked in on me.

And then there's the Type 3's. Oh, you Type 3's. It's OK—germs are real. I just don't mind them as much, I guess.

So, what are you? A type 1, type 2, or type 3? Note: this question can be found as an entry option in the giveaway below... so make sure to enter!

And now, as promised, this month's giveaway! Brought to you by my amazing July Large sponsors, there are 15 prizes and 15 winners... enter away!

Type 1 here!!!! I have {on complete accident} been a #2 and it was SO embarrassing.

Kristen Victoria said...

I'm a combination of Type 1, but one time I was a Type 2! LOL I was showing a girl at school how the handicap stall looks closed all the time but it's really open, and literally kicked it in, only to find a girl sitting on the potty... one of my most embarrassing moments :/

Tara Welgraven said...

Type 1 for sure!

Anonymous said...

Most certainly a 1!

I used to be a 2, but then I walked in on someone and I've been walked in on also!

<3Hima

Amber Nicole said...

I'm a type 1. My kids however, they're type 2s. Tsk tsk. They're young though. Haha. Some days Maddie is a type 3. Like when it comes to portapotties or campground toilets.

Anyway, I'd be thrilled with any of these as a prize!

Danielle said...

Usually type 1, unless I can't see feet. Then, I'm a tad bit type 2. If I'm type 2, I usually try to gently push on the door to see if it's locked. No banging, jiggling or twisting out of control. :)

Unknown said...

i'm so type 1 :D

<3 kharisma

Makin Memories Of Us said...

I'm Type 1 :)

Unknown said...

I'm DEFINITELY a Type #1 =)

Victoria said...

Totally a type #3.....Yes, germs are real and I won't be picking up any extras in a public restroom. If a trip can't be denied, I am a QUICK, don't touch ANYTHING #1.

Unknown said...

Hi! I would like to win either the green and white scarf or the H&M gift card.

Unknown said...

I'm definitely a Type 1 person. I have to knock and make any noise possible to avoid embarrassing situations in public bathrooms :)

Priya said...

I would say I'm a type 1, or slightly type 2 if aggrivated. I entered as many ways as I could so I hope I win something!!

perfectly priya

Lauren Loeffel said...

Type 1 all the way!

Shaina Longstreet said...

Britni Alexis said...

Definitely a type 1! Can't be busting in on people or be too overcautious about germs. Gotta live life!

samdanand said...

Usually Type 3 hahaha. But if I have to then Type 2!

Anonymous said...

I'm like, both type one and two. I knock on the door, and if no one responds, I still push the door open, but I only open it a bit (not enough where I can see in) just in case someone is in there, then they have time to go and stop me.

cadeira said...

Haha, great question. Type 2 most of the time. Great give away!

Paige said...

Type 1 for sure!

Unknown said...

type one for sure :)

Lindsay said...

I'm a mix of 1 and 2, depending on the bathroom. At work, I'm a 1, but in public, I'm a 2, because there's often a lineup and you can tell which stall is empty because someone just exited it!

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

I'm Type 1. I don't want to walk in on somebody!

Anonymous said...

I'm definitely a Type 1, but recently I knocked lightly on a door, waited and didn't see any feet under the door. I pushed open the door and there was a little girl sitting there! I felt so embarrassed for her and myself! I've had people walk in on me and I know how bright red I turned. I hated that I did that to someone else!

JMc said...

I am definitely Type1 lol. Type 2 people stress me out because I'm not a fan of everyone being in the bathroom at the same time anyways. Kinda weird to be doing your business with other people that close together, lol.

DSR said...

Type 1...for sure!

Unknown said...

oh my gosh this is SO HILARIOUS!! I'm totally type 1. Ya know what else I do? I open the bathroom door reaaaalllllly slowwwwlllyyyyy so that if someone is in there, they can yell before I see them!!

Anonymous said...

I'm usually type 1...but I must admit that sometimes I am type 2

Jessica said...

I'm usually Type 1 but it depends on how badly I have to go.... I have definitely been the one to walk in on someone - so embarrassing!

EmilyFinta said...

I'm definitely type one like you!

Jamie said...

I am type A for sure!

And I'm like you, germs don't scare me :)

<3 Jamie

Abby Purcell said...

Janna Renee said...

I'm definitely a Type 1. When I have to go, I have to go, but I don't want to barge in on someone!!

Unknown said...

I am most definitely a Type 1!

Nicole @ Three 31 said...

I'm a little bit Type 1 and a little bit Type 2. I stand 6-feet-tall, and I'm plus-size, so public bathroom stalls are one of my worst enemies. I usually peak underneath the door before touching the door handle. Of course, nothing's more embarrassing than when I'm standing in the stall and I can clearly see right over the top because the stall walls are short. OHMYWORD. Awkward!!!!!!!!!
