Shahrukh Pestonji, 52, a 5-foot-7 Toronto resident says he has visited 100 countries and likely has seen his share of public restrooms. After encountering toilet stall doors shorter than he is he contacted Seattle's mayor, newspaper and the Market Saturday, saying, "You're sitting on the toilet with your pants around your ankles and people are peering over at you." He called his experience "absolutely degrading, humiliating, disgusting," the Seattle Times reported Friday.
Market representative Kelly Lindsay said Pestonji's comment was not the first objection to the stall doors, but pointed out they are compliant with the law.
"They are a safety precaution," she said. "The door height is a deterrent to unwanted activity in the restroom stalls."
She added the Market has no plans to change the height of the doors.
