Etiquette question for ya.

So, what is the proper etiquette with regard to heading down the hall to use the little girl's room, noticing that the door sign indicates it is vacant (it's a one person restroom ... only a toilet and sink ...you lock the door behind ya to keep others out), walking in to said bathroom and finding a coworker screetching as they see me enter because they are sitting on the toilet doing their business?

Is it:

A) Stand there while pointing and laughing.
B) Apologize and step outside to guard the door for them until they are done (since the toilet is on the FAR side of the room and they aren't exactly in a spot to get up and lock it themselves at this point).
C) Turn bright red, back out while mumbling incoherently "my eyes, my eyes", go downstairs to the other restroom and avoid them forever after at work.


C?? Good.

because i am intimately familiar with said bathroom, T1, sometimes, when one is in a hurry, one just runs into the bathroom and thinks they've flipped the lock all the way to the "in use" position but it doesn't go all the way and so the door isn't locked. oh hell, maybe i am just dumb....

anyway, i guess we all know the frap girl's reaction, however, the nice thing would've been to stand and guard the door....unless the person using the bathroom was someone you'd want someone else to walk in on, like......(shhhh)
