Untucked or tucked
I quickly turned around, realizing that something wasn’t right.
Leaving through the door I put the sign back in my sight
So that I could examine it and understand why
All those women were giving me the eye.
I looked back and forth between the two signs,
Then down at my shirt thinking mine’s
Obviously not tucked in.

Guy walks into women’s restroom,
turns around and leaves
looks at mens sign and women’s sign misreading the signs to be representational of people with their shirt tucked in and without their shirt tucked in.
The guy has his shirt untucked and is confused why people reacted by giving him the eye.
Did anyone else have a different read?
