Drinking Fountains

What is the exit strategy for leaving a drinking fountain?

I wonder this every time I get a drink at the gym.

"Ok, if I back up, the person behind me will do the awkward "get out of the way" dance with me.  If I turn to the side, I may run into someone walking by.  If I turn around, I run face-first into the person behind me..."

I take my drink, stand up, and face the inevitably perplexing awkward events about to ensue.

What do you do?

I take a side-step in the direction that is not another drinking fountain and then turn around.
