Perhaps someone can enlighten me. Is it a federal requirement that all toilet cubicles in the US offer no more of a sop to privacy than a couple of artfully placed serviettes? Seriously I have never found a cublicle here with less than a 1 foot gap at the bottom and higher than about 5'6". Not only does this only provide a fairly insubstantial barrier but they are also always made from bolted together mdf, with exterior mounts - meaning that there is a ½ inch gap at the door hinge and at the door opening. It's gross. When I'm removing 4 days of excessive food build up I prefer a more private arena, something in the manner of The George - somewhere I can really brace myself. And I can't imagine it can be that pretty for the other toilet users either.
