The two restroom doors are next to each other at work. During my once a week visit to the corporate office, I walk past these doors several times and find myself theorizing the cause of the signage discrepancy. Is it poor attention to detail or a veiled insult to women?
Pick your favorite theory. The women’s restroom requires two different signs (Ladies and Women) because the building manager _______________.
a. had an extra sign and did not want to waste it
b. was unable to remove the old sign without damaging the door
c. believes women need to be told everything twice, even where to find the restroom
d. categorizes females into two distinct categories – Ladies and Women; all men are Gentlemen, but all women are not Ladies
e. none of the above
