Who’s watching me now?

Ever worry about who’s watching you while you’re in the bathroom?  This would drive me nuts!

See anything interesting?

(from Joel Telling)

For someone who is afraid to take a leak in public, this is either their worst nightmare or cheap therapy.  

Seems like there’s a latin name for every fear … fear of flying (Aviophobia), fear of snakes (Ophidiophobia), fear of glass (Nelophobia – do these people live in caves?), fear of your mother-in-law (Pentheraphobia), etc.  I just had to find out what the fear of peeing in public was … apparently it’s called Paruresis. 

Definition:  Paruresis, also known as shy kidney or shy bladder syndrome, is a type of social anxiety disorder in which the sufferer is unable to urinate in the (real or imaginary) presence of others, such as in a public restroom. 

Speaking of whcih … an even worse phobia is Urophobia – fear of urine or urinating.  If you have this, do you run the risk of holding it until you pop?  OUCH.

    I think it’s in Japan. Wouldn’t surprise me if it was in a government building or somewhere completely unexpected (like an elementary school – maybe those are all the kids’ school teachers).
