Took ds 2 to his swim lesson this afternoon. He went in the shower after lesson, I put our things in cubicle , went back to shower to get him out. (4 doors from cubicle). Turned back, someone had thrown our clothes out of cubicle onto wet floor, gone into cubicle and shut door. I was gobsmacked! Totally understand it's annoying if x people put stuff in.cubicles and bugger off for 20 mins but ffs! I, was 4 doors up getting 7 yr old out, shower! I was so angry. I shouted something about sine incredibly rude person has thrown my sons clean clothes on wet floor, and several, mums sympathised. How bloody rude?

Oh dear

Prob the person was sick of types who hog cubicles and thought you were one of them

Anyway, your 7 year can get self out of shower from next time, yes?

I sympathise, but how did they know how long you had been away?

Janethegirl Mon 14-Apr-14 20:40:35

You get arses everywhere, I'd wait till they exited the cubicle and let them know what muppets they were ( ideally without calling them too rude words given you've got your dc with you).

Sorry, I think YWBU to 'reserve' the cubicle before you were ready to use it (4 doors away or not).

20 minutes or 1 minute, makes no difference. Put your stuff in in with you, when you need to use it and not before.

Bloody rude to remove your stuff and leave on wet floor though.

Wanted to check he'd rinsed shampoo out, that was all. Shouldn't I be able to do that, without someone throwing clothes on wet floor? Or, at leas asking whose, they, were!

Surely you go and speak to an attendant if you think someone is taking the mick with respect to clothes in cubicles (or have a nosy to see who's around at the very least and if need be ask)?

Throwing another person's clothes on the floor - especially a wet floor - is out of order

CoffeeTea103 Mon 14-Apr-14 20:45:40

They probably assumed you had gone off.

It's stil shite to find your clothes on a wet floor.

bloody changing room politics! wink

Venue needs more cubicles.

UncleT Mon 14-Apr-14 20:47:43

Yes Minx, you should be able to. It may be annoying if people genuinely hog the facilities, but that's clearly not what was going on here though. It was unnecessary and rude to throw the clean clothes onto the floor.

Totally depends OP.

If you were writing this as a parent who was unable to use a cubicle as it appeared somebody was reserving it with clothes then you would have been told

'Move the clothes, throw them on the floor. Cheeky buggers reserving cubicles. It's not like they own them. You and your 12 dc's deserve a cubicle to change in. Go complain to staff also.'

MN is a funny old place OP.

However irritated they were, and I moved 4 doors along for a split second to check shampoo, I think it's inexcusable to pick up someone's possessions and dump, them on wet dirty floor. His clothes, were soaked.

20 minutes or 1 minute, makes no difference. Put your stuff in in with you, when you need to use it and not before.

Guess you're lucky enough to have never dropped anything en route from your locker to a cubicle and had to go back for it after depositing everything else then?

minxthemanx Mon 14-Apr-14 20:58:45

Thank you for that Andro. I don't think it was unfair of, me to put, dry clothes, swim, badge, bit of paper, etc in cubicle while I walked 4 doors along, and said, make sure, you rinse your hair I clearly wasn't 'hogging' a cubicle in the, way being, described

HolidayCriminal Mon 14-Apr-14 21:08:16

I don't think you did anything wrong, Minx, except underestimate the arsiness of some other people. Need a different procedure for future.

Pipbin Mon 14-Apr-14 21:14:28

If it was only 4 doors along and you were only gone for 1 minute how did anyone have the time dump your clothes on the floor? Moreover, how did you not see them?

I agree with a pp. Last week there was a tread from the other side. Someone complaining that people had reserved all the cubicles with clothes. Everyone suggested that they throw the clothes on the floor.

WipsGlitter Mon 14-Apr-14 21:17:49

So what happened when she came out? Did you wait to talk to them?

Sirzy Mon 14-Apr-14 21:18:05

I was thinking the same as Pibpin. All seems impossible to have happened in such a short space of time/distance.

CaptainTripps Mon 14-Apr-14 21:19:10

I don't think you should have put your stuff in and then gone to check your son / get him out of the shower / wait for him to rinse hair.

Use the cubicle when you are ready! Lesson learnt for next time.

CaptainTripps Mon 14-Apr-14 21:20:44

Methinks there is some dramatic license/honesty issues going on with timings.

I knew before I read any responses you would be told YWBU for some bizarre reason but no, IMO, you weren't.
Yes, you could have been 'hogging' the cubicle but if I was in the position of the twat who chucked your stuff on the floor, I would have waited a minute or two - they could at least have put them somewhere dry. It's just fucking nasty behaviour quite frankly and if they were to come on here and ask "am I being unreasonable to throw some woman and her kid's clothes from empty cubicle onto wet floor?" they also would have been told yes, if it's any consolation.

Maybe they have read some threads on here! To be fair though you didn't even know if your son was ready when you claimed your cubicle.
