I went to see "U2 3D" at the Jordan's Furniture IMAX in Natick last weekend. Bono and the Edge were impressive, especially from the front row, and the music sounded great, but the most memorable part of the night wasn't the concert footage, it was the bathroom.
Each of the stalls has what appears to be a basic full-length mirror on the outside of the door. That's fine -- the more mirrors in bathrooms, the better I say. But when I went inside, I realized I could see out into the bathroom; I could see women washing their hands and fussing with their hair. And suddenly I felt very vulnerable. Maybe it was clear glass, not a mirror. Maybe they could see me too! But I could see in the reflection of the mirror above the sinks that there was indeed a mirror on my door. Why on earth would they put two-way mirrors on the stall doors?
According to Jordan's PR exec Heather Copelas, the mirrors are "just another crazy idea from Eliot" (owner Eliot Tatelman). It's kind of entertaining, I guess, but also a little bit creepy. I prefer maximum privacy in bathroom situations, and that left me feeling more than a little exposed. Thank goodness I wasn't still wearing my 3D glasses -- who knows what I would have seen then.
