Beware of tapping your feet in public restrooms it could wind up getting you arrested or even something much, much worse. Normally when I am tapping my feet it’s because I have to go to the bathroom. According to police the foot tapping in addition to putting your bags on the bathroom door is a signal that you want to get some George Michael bathroom action.
So by all means just throw your luggage on the urine soaked floors or simply discard them in the nearest trash can.
There is nothing, I repeat nothing in the world of entertainment more annoying than tap dancing. Unless of course it involves any sort of musical that includes tap dancing. I fully support a ban on tap dancing, but I personally feel the ban should be extended to other similarly annoying types of entertainment like polka, mariachi music and white people rapping.
Senator Larry Craig of
Indiana Idaho found out about this tap dancing ban the hard way last month and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly-conduct charges stemming from his June arrest by an undercover police officer in a men’s restroom at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, a court spokeswoman and the senator’s office said yesterday.
I am pretty sure seeing this guy checking me out in the bathroom would creep out any man or small boys in particular. He does kind of have that creepy boy scout troop leader that wants you to sleep in his tent look though.
The undercover officer was monitoring the restroom on June 11. A few minutes after noon, Craig entered and sat in the stall next to him. Craig began tapping his right foot, touched his right foot to the left foot of the officer and brushed his hand beneath the partition between them. He was then arrested.
While he was being interviewed about the incident, Craig gave police a business card showing that he is a U.S. senator. “What do you think about that?” Craig asked the officer, according to the report obtained by Roll Call. I normally try and hand out my business card before my date arrests me, but it never hurts to try I guess.
Larry Edwin Craig has served as senator from Idaho since being first elected in 1990 and served four terms in the US Congress prior to that. He has served on the Senate Republican Policy Committee (1996-2003), Special Committee on Aging (One Hundred Eighth Congress), Committee on Veterans’ Affairs (One Hundred Ninth Congress). And apparently was either serving and served in airport restrooms from around the country…
Senator Craig is having second thoughts about his pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charge and is already in serious spin control over the incident. He paid $500 in fines and was placed on one year’s probation, beginning Aug. 8, the date he pleaded guilty. He could face an additional $500 in fines and a 10-day jail sentence if he violates probation.
In 2006, a gay activist said he had spoken with men who had sexual encounters with Craig, including in the restrooms at Union Station. Craig’s office told the Spokesman-Review of Spokane, Wash., that the allegations were “completely ridiculous.”
Craig was a member of the “Singing Senators,” a now-defunct Republican barbershop quartet. It included Sen. Trent Lott (Miss.) and then-Sen. John D. Ashcroft (Mo.), who broke up the group when he was named attorney general.
Craig is married and has three grown children. He will complete his third Senate term next year, after serving 10 years in the House, and speculation has swirled for months that he may retire. Spokesman Dan Whiting said the senator will announce his decision this fall.
