Thank you so kindly Nick! Yes i realised you meant visits and not toilets, i was just pulling your leg. I went to a new venue last night and was seeing a comedian with mates. The show was almost on us so i decided best to try and go now instead of during the show in case the comedian singled me out and made a joke. Some guy walked in just ahead of me and i didn't like the layout. The six urinals were all low and set back. He went to the far end so i had to stand nearest the door but as it was set back anyone who walked in would of had a view. Realising that was not a good situation and that as i had hardly drank all afternoon due to feeling unwell, i diagnosed my fluid level as low so faked it. After the show my mates wanted a drink but i declined so sat in the bar with them. I had small cups of free water from a water cooler and later went back to the gents. I was alone but more importantly my level was at a better level and i went straight away without anxiety that someone might walk in. It's good to see you have a very practical and successful routine :-)
