As someone who has not read "Bazaar" yet, I cannot comment on story details or if they are good or not, but...

The family that stopped to check on the horse lady, why couldnt they just mind their business and drive away back home or something?
Without having more context, this sounds as complaints I have seen from other stories. Complaints people who already know the ending from having read it, and who know stories have monsters or killers in them. They ask why the characters had to go on (when they would clearly be attacked because it is a horror story).

Well, speaking about those other cases, the characters do not know they are in a horror story. So they do what they do without the foreknowledge that they will be attacked.

Also, humans are curious. They see something to explore, they will want to explore it. Not all humans, but non-curious humans would not have very interesting things happening too often, so they rarely make it into stories like this. :D

Very true. We think when watching a movie or a television show I wouldn't do that. But really? When was the last time you were in that situation?

9 times out of 10 I pee sitting down at home. And I'm definitely sexually healthy ;)
....since I had to do all the cleaning during my first marriage, I learned to take a squirt whilst seated to avoid a bunch of ummmmm, overspray......even if it's sterile and mine, didn't make me eager to wipe it up.....now, I feel like I should put one of these next to the can....

In Sweden, they've been debating a law to make bathrooms "genderless," offering only toilets and encouraging men to sit.
Even if they do make them genderless, I hope they keep them segregated.

If Swedish girls also like going to the bathroom in pairs (or more), we poor Swedish boys (not that I am a Swedish boy) will never find an available toilet, or even standing space while waiting for one. :dread:

And who would go in to clean them? Male staff or female staff?

Your sarcasm (your first comment) was more subtle than mine. I can't do subtle sarcasm, it's just not in my nature.
As I get older I find I almost exclusively speak the language of sarcasm. Hopefully sarcastic and non-offensive but communication breakdown is quite common. I should start using that winking emoji more often just so it's out there. See 'ya champ1966, mal.

Doesn't matter. Businesses rarely clean while patrons are actually in the restroom. I couldn't care less if bathrooms are genderless; anyone who thinks they haven't already used a restroom with someone of the opposite biological sex is fooling themselves :)

Some people pee standing up. Some people pee sitting down. Some people pee all over themselves either way. ;-D
Okee-dokee. So, seems some of you didn't get my analogy here. What I meant was some people like the story, some people don't and some people want to come on here and b*tch about not liking it at all and therefore are 'peeing all over themselves'. Is it clear now? It's quite rude for a member to get on here and complain about how much they don't like a certain story or book or whatever- here in Steve's backyard, his BACKYARD people. Steve's not going to read a comment from a member who's thrashing him about a story they didn't like. Really, think about it. Would the member use those words if they were to talk to Steve face-to-face? I don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong. Either way, now I've cleared up the blurred lines on my post for you all.
