Yeah I like my privacy too. Even when I am trying on clothes in department stores I don't like the staff coming in with the "how are we going" routine. Don't like help with bra sizing either. Can't stand nurses that forget to draw curtains between beds or doctors that leave doors of examining rooms open while they fetch your file. Still get a bit perurbed even having my legs and bikini line waxed.
Just a little shrinking violet aren't I.
When I was younger,I cannot recall it bothering me too much,though it was not something I would put myself into the position of having to do unless absolutely necessary!!! Now as I am older and do not still have the body of a nymph(ha ha ha ha!!!),I truly do not care at all.Again I do not get into the position where it is necessary!! But I have been in hospital so many times where I have been at the total mercy of nurses for EVERY single need a human can have,so dignity flew right out the window!!!! Again,NOT by choice!!
Some places or situations, you just have to quickly strip off and get on with it - like if you use the dressing rooms at the beach or pool and the cubicles are full of lucky people who seem to be taking forever whilst changing. When this happens to me, I get a bit annoyed but, of course, I don't have to strip off at all - I can just wait until a cubicle becomes free. No such luxury in the showers at the beach or pool though.
Isn't it funny that when a convenience is taken away from us, we get a bit shirty about it, but when the convenience is available to us, we don't necessarily use it or worry about things - like when breast feeding in public, all of a sudden we don't mind being exposed and don't really fancy using the feeding room conveniences available to us. Guess there just ain't no way you can please everyone.
It wouldn't bother me if its family, but generally I don't like getting undressed in front of strangers. Especially if it doesn't involve a medical practitioner. I don't make these things a big deal but I rather some privacy as I can't be sure of what the other guy is thinking.
I attended an all girls school, & we were taught how to get undressed/dressed in the non-cubicled(in those days) dressing shed at the pool.
When the new pool was built, we had cubicles. I swam thrice daily, & usually had a cubicle to myself. What luxury!
BUT as Senior, & Open Swimming School Champion, & School & Inter-School Swimming Captain, for two years in a row, & Lifesaving Senior, I DID have some priority!
Oh! The 'perk' of swimming constantly, bringing Honours to my school paid off! Yay!
