Then I realized that I'd have to sit painfully widely to reach someone else's stall. And without gorilla arms, it would take a contortionist to reach beneath the divider accidentally. With my newfound awareness I've noticed the same in other restrooms as well. In fact, in three decades of flying and using airport men's rooms, no one has ever reached under my stall. Reassured, I'm now able to do my business as usual and head off for my flights.
I do want the problem to be solved, however, since our restrooms need to be made safe for democracy. I hear the Minneapolis airport is now stepping up to the task by overhauling the suspect men's room stalls, spending $25,000 to install extended metal dividers that will shave nine inches off the current foot-high gap. But I have a cheaper solution: Why not just place some stickers saying "No Republican Senators?" That would solve the problem.
