Carrying On Your Conversation in Unlikely Places 

Twice this week I've been in a bathroom, and witnessed someone walk in while talking on the phone, go up to a urinal, relieve themselves, zip up, and walk out having never stopped talking. Besides the obvious missing observation of hand washing by these people, what is the matter with them? Would you want to be on the other end of that conversation while that person is doing their thing? Can you tell? Do you hear the echo against the tile, or the distinct sound of the stream hitting the porcelain? If you later found out, would you be offended... or would you feel the opposite? Would you somehow get an ego boost from the knowledge that this person thought you to be so important, that they wouldn't even hang up in order to pee?

I'd just like to let all of you know right now... I'm not that important. Feel free to hang up on me in order to do that. Please! In other bathroom related news... Instapundit is sharing some bathroom technology for people who refuse to rest in the restroom.

Comments:

OMG! How disgusting! My husband never washes his hands when he uses the bathroom either, its horrible. He just flicks them off all over the floor and then wipes them on the arm of the recliner. Uggh. What can we women do to get you men to learn proper bathroom behavior?

I hate it when I'm talking to someone on the phone and suddenly you hear the toilet flush. I mean...come on! Tell me you'll call me back for pete's sake...don't take me in there with you!
