I am learning more than I want to know about men's restroom etiquette. The only rules I have known for sure are that there is no eye contact at the urinals, and there is no talking except for a brief exchange during the hand-washing process or a "How you doin'?" if you meet while one is going in and the other is leaving. Now I have to wonder about my stupid feet:
A foot-tapping ritual was a common thread in many of the 41 arrests reported during a four-month airport bathroom sting that snared Sen. Larry Craig.
An undercover officer would take a seat in a stall. Soon another man would sit in the stall next door and start tapping his foot, perhaps moving it closer to the officer's. The officer would move his foot up and down slowly. The suspect might then extend his hand under the divider between the stalls, sometimes repeatedly.
That would be enough to get the man busted.
Sen. Craig has been, um, tap-dancing around this issue with pretty lame excuses: It was a misunderstanding, I just wanted to get it over with, it was the media's fault, I wasn't gay the and I'm not now. I think he's missing the obvious defense: Restless Leg Syndrome!
