I covered a few night shifts when one of my colleagues had to undergo an operation. The first nights were fine, minus the 4am drowsiness. Well the third night took a weird turn. Around 2am nature called and against my best wishes had to poop.
I went across the hall to the 2 toilets we have by our lobby (which is also right in front of a motion capture camera, important later).
As I was tending to my business and browsing my phone, I had a very loud and fast knocking on the cubicle door. It would have scared the crap out of me if I wasn’t already taking care of that situation.
“Occupied.” I stated in a confused tone.
The fast hard knocking happened again, with a slight jiggle of the handle.
“Only room for one I’m sorry” I said with a slight sternness.
At this point I was agitated more than anything, because for the last 2 hours I have had no human interaction. Then as soon as I’m on the toilet I get company?
I leave the cubicle and no one is there. I check the other cubicles which is right next to the one I was in. The door was propped slightly so I could see it was not being used. I was beyond confused.
To stifle my own curiosity I pulled up the camera to see who was pounding on door, and why they couldn’t use the other one.
I saw 2 recent events… 1 event was me entering the toilet… the 2nd event was me leaving the toilet. Nothing else activated the motion ACTIVATED camera. It was at this point I was severely spooked.
