What would you do if were going to try clothes on to see if they fit you and heard or saw two people making out in the fitting room? This happened to me yesterday while out shopping and thought this was disgusting. I feel that is inappropriate for two people for doing this since there could be kids around plus people can see through the doors to the rooms as well as hear the sounds. They need to keep this to their homes or hotel rooms and not in a public place. I do not need to see or hear what they are doing in the room. How do you feel? Have you witnessed this before?

I would tell the store clerk about the hanky panky going on in their dressing room. They should get a room! There are so many people like that. When I worked in a restaurant one time, there were 2 couples who got caught in the act doing it in the booths... security escorted them out. When I was working in an arcade, 2 people did it in the photo machine. I didn't see it but I saw their picture!!! It got stuck in the machine and they didn't complain about it because they must have been really embarassed. It was the customer after them that complained because her pictures got stuck as well.

i think you should report them to the sales person or the guard there. it's inappropriate to do that especially they're in a public place. those guys probably don't have money for a motel or just having the thrill of their lives. tsk tsk tsk...

It is definitely inappropriate and was surprised anyone would do such a thing in a public place. It should be kept to a hotel, motel or their home or apartment. It would be terrible if a child walked by.

I agree its an inappropriate place to do such acts. We should also consider that some people do find public places as a turn on. The thought of getting caught adds to their excitement, don't get me wrong here, i am against such acts. In any case i think someone has to report them to proper authorities.

Ive seen worst.. not only in the fitting room where it is at least partially covered.. some people here just make out in public places.. OMG it is soooo disgusting... and totally inappropriate of course.. I feel very uncomfortable.. and try not to stare at them.. but at the same time I feel like telling them to get a room or something.. It is not a right thing to do and it makes me feel as if Im in a bad places or something...

That's never happened to me before, but if that happened to me, I'd probably be uncomfortable and stuff. Although afterwards, I'd probably tell my friends about it and it'd become a joke or something.

damn what a bunch of prudes....I think it's kinky, and you all know you do too you're just too emberrased to admit it, and to actually do it. Fitting rooms are hot, and so are elevators.

i agree its disgusting for 2 people 2 make out in the changing room. in addition to the points u have mentioned i would like to add the hygiene factor. they will mess up the place with their secretions and the poor store attendants will have 2 clean it up. just the thought of entering there after that it upsetting. in reply to your second question, no i am lucky that so far i have not experienced such things. hope i never do.

Yes actually i have witnessed such an act!!! When i first started my night shift at IGA i actually waled in on a couple in the womans washroom. Believe me i thought it was embarassing and disgusting and they were doing much more than just making out!!

i have faced this one time one such couple were locked in a trial/fitting room for a long time, while a big queue waited for their turn to try on the outfits. till someone called in the sales person to knock and get them out. it is very frustrating. though i am used to seeing and really dont mind holding closely or an occassional smooch (it is commom in the US) but to be locked in like that is not proper in a public place.

Thats the only time you saw this in public? Lucky you! Try telephone booths; fast food restaurant restrooms; tall, hedged-in PUBLIC gardens, even in the bedroom section of a department store - LOL! I bang on the doors and yell: " Get a room!". That empties the place qickly!

Maybe I'll take their picture and post it on the internet so that the whole world would know what they've done. It's also a warning to others who plan on doing it, lol!

That would not be appropriate as they can sue you for invasion of privacy.

I find it pretty disturbing if you could see the couple while they were in the dressing room. I value my privacy, and don't want to have people peeping in on me while I'm changing. I'm also a bit confused, because you said you could hear them. I don't recall "making out" to sound like much of anything. Unless your definition is different than my defintion, and they were really doing more than I'm picturing. I really see nothing wrong with a couple going into a dressing room to have their own little moment, or quickie make-out session. It's better than them going about it in public. However, if it goes beyond kissing, they need to take it somewhere else. No one needs to be subject to the sights and sounds of that exhibition act.

The doors in the fitting rooms here are not solid doors so it is easy for someone to walk by and see or hear them doing whatever. The doors have gaps in them and do not cover the whole room either. Some people do like to make noises while making out but only loud enough for someone that is right there or in the room next to them.

Well, you have a number of options: 1. You can tear the curtain/door open and scream at them. 2. You can open the curtain/door and join them. 3. You can ignore them and walk away. 4. You can find the store manager. 5. You can pull out your cell phone and call 911. What did you do? One of these, or did you find a sixth option?

I chose option three and walked away. All of those are good options. I probably should have told someone but I just wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible.

I probably would clear my throat and let them know that they should take their private act out of public view..children could see them..and that such actions are not appropriate.. What did you do about iT?

I know one thing and that is I am glad that my nephew and niece were not with me at the time. It would be terrible for a child to witness this kind of thing. Making out should be kept to the home or motel room or even in a car in an area where there is nobody around.

I would bust in there, tear off all my clothes and theirs, and throw them down on the floor and get down to business! YEAH!

lol!..hahaha! o that just has me in fits! That would certainly alert a few more customers I'm sure..I myself would probable turn around and walk away. I understand that some couples get a thrill out of it, and if it was in an adult clothing store I'd probably find it amusing. But if it was in a teen store I wouldn't be comfortable with that at all, but I don't know how I'd approach the management on that one!

No offense, but quit being such a baby. One of the following possibilities could have been happening: #1- One of the people could've been an Iraq solider who just got back from Iraq and the significant other could be giving him deep passionate kisses of thanks that tell god how grateful they are to have their significant other back and the only appropriate place for that kind of inteaction could be the back of a clothing store. And you don't want to be accused of not supporting our troops, do you? Hmmmmm? or #2- One person could be trying to suck the wound of a spider bite off the other person's lips. And if they stopped, the venom might've killed them and then the person who survived might be responsible for murder. And you don't want to be accused of condoning murder by spider bite, do you? Hmmmmm? In seriousness, I don't think PDA is that big of a deal, unless it's in front of single people because then it's just rubbing it in. But kids are going to have to learn at some point, and I say, why not learn it in the mall then at our public schools?

Regardless of the situation it is totally inappropriate to do such a thing in a public place.

If I went in a fitting room and heard this going on, I would turn around and leave. I would buy nothing. I would also report it to the manager. People should have more respect for themselves than that. I have not witnessed that before. I did go to a store one time and parked beside a car and got out just in time to see some naked bodies in the car next to me. Thank god my kids were on the other side of my car and did not see anything.

That is good that your kids did not see what was going on in the car and I wonder if anybody else noticed this before I got there. The employees should be aware of what is going on and in most places here they have someone by the fitting room areas to monitor things as people come and go from there.

I definitely think a hotel room or home or even in a car in an isolated place would be better than in a fitting room in a clothing store.

Nope this has never happened to me before. But I would probably feel the same way you did... disgusted...but as I read your post I came up with a devious plan...I would use the camera from my mobile, rip the curtains open and snap as many pictures as I can...and when your done, say thanks, let them know that if they really want public exposure, you will do it for them....you will now post the photo's of them on the internet for everyone to see!!! That should teach them a lesson...but I probably would not have the guts to do it...I would just inform the store manager!
