Particularly because it is relayed from a very specific and narrow point of view.
For all we know, the guy was dutifully attending his wife when Susie, uniformed and mistaken which is not at all unusual, opted to make a mountain out of a molehill.
"When we came out of stalls and were washing our hands and had pulled up our dresses to adjust our underwear, she saw a man in the double mirrors! She alerted me while quickly putting her dress down."
There's no mention that the man in the mirror was lustfully staring at Susie and her daughter, just that daughter saw a man in the mirror. Likewise there's no telling what Susie actually said to the guy, but given the frequency with which she pisses-off people in this forum, I highly doubt it was just a simple "it's inappropriate for you to be here."
By her own admission, Q and daughter weren't attending church regularly so they likely had no knowledge of the situation:
"I had convinced my inactive daughter that going to church would never hurt you and we ought to go once in awhile."
So what did Q and daughter really know about the situation? Not much would be my guess. Given the one-sided view, its quite possible that the man's presence in the ladies' restroom was not at all inappropriate and that Susie simply reacted out of ignorance and arrogance which is consistent with her MO round these parts.
"He went ballistic, got right in my face backing me up against a wall as he said he had PERMISSION as he always came in to help his wife."
Again, given Q's condescending arrogance, I don't find that at all hard to digest, particularly the part about the guy having permission.
"He maintained that his wife would only let him help her in the restroom. His wife was in a wheelchair and they were in the nursing room area that is adjacent to the wheelchair access toilet where she was eating a cracker and they had the sound up on the piped in Sunday School Lesson."
Funny, but that just doesn't seem to be consistent with a perverted old man staring lustfully at two women in the ladies restroom mirror. I submit that Q over-reacted, but I'd like to hear the pervert-in-question's take before choosing sides.
The rest of the story is pure speculation and conjecture with a more than fair amount of unnecessary drama:
"When we came running and yelling out of the bathroom, a "sister" told us that this was the Lord's house and we needed to be Reverent! I could not believe my ears. In her behalf, she had no idea what had happened."
Why am I not surprised by the running and yelling over such a ridiculously trivial matter?
Here again, clear admission that the two victims-in-question were and likely still are completely out of touch:
"The women and men of the church said that it was just fine for that man to be in the woman's restroom. He was there to help his wife. And besides, he would never LOOK ... This man had access to the women's restroom anytime he pleased, he was NOT helping his wife, she was having a snack in the nursing mothers area taking up all the room so others could not use the room."
Now, maybe its just me, but it seems quite obvious that Q had no idea what was going on at the time and, to this day, still hasn't a clue. Just another in a long series of knee-jerk reactions for which she is famous. Perhaps having the snack in private was part of the deal. Maybe his wife had stomach problems and didn't want to spew in front of the whole congregation. Who knows? Point is, Susie didn't bother to find out and even went to far as to reject any and all information that eventually came her way.
Had this story been relayed by anyone else, Susie would have "gone ballistic" on that person with her usual myriad of excuses as to why its quite alright for mormons to do and say stupid s**t. Because it happened to her, however, it is a drama of the highest degree.
You know, if I had to attend my wife in the ladies’ restroom at her request and had made prior arrangements to do so and was then lambasted by some ignorant fool for doing so, I would probably go ballistic on that individual too.
I place no credence in this story and never have. Pure drama queen bulls**t in my mind.
