Going to the bathroom at work

Recommended Posts

There's a manager at my place of employment who, much like myself, drinks a lot of water during the course of the day. Unfortunately, we both seem to go on the same schedule. I've been seeing him about 3+ times a day in there. It gets pretty awkward after that many times. So, lately, I've been going up to the second floor to do my thing and avoid the guy. It's unbelievable. One time, he says to me, "Anything going on today?", thinking I'm just going for walks because I have nothing to do. :mad:

However, I have noticed he goes on the top of the hour for the most part. So I'm planning my bathroom runs at his off-peak time. It's like a full-time job. I'm going to have to create a process map and a risk assessment of this!

At least he doesn't try to talk to you while you're going to the can. That's the worst. I once had to tell a guy from the office that I'd catch up with him when I was done taking the Browns to the Super Bowl (the ONLY way they'll ever get there, by the way :D ).

When you're done with the process map and risk assessment, make sure you send the TPS report with the new coversheet, mmmkay?

We have a VP in my office who will not only NOT give a courtesy flush, but I do believe he is actually trying to force it out louder and faster as some type of freakish power play. I mean what kind of guy actually wants you to hear their bodiliy functions? All the while trying to maintain a conversation with those cringin and running for the door.

It really creeps me out...

Working at the Pentagon for over 30 years, I seen a lot. My top bathroom stories are:

1. Walk up to the urinal and see a guy standing there eating a sandwich.

2. Standing at the urinal when the bathroom door slams open, a guy rushes in, runs to a stall and you hear this massive explosion before the door even shuts. I don't know how he got his pants down in time.

3. Sitting on the can when some guy gets into the stall next to me. Next thing I hear is he shuffling a deck of cards. Then a hand appears under the stall and he says pick a card. Are you kidding me! Like I want to see card tricks then.

4. Walking in and it sounds like some guy is giving birth in one of the stalls.

Many a time I've walked in and thought about calling the Pentagon Police. I could swear from the smell that there was a dead body in there somewhere.

A thread about going to the bathroom, I can finally die a happy a man:D

The natural "thunder" doesn't bother me near as much as the gasping and heavy breathing some of the people I work for make. I'm not one who blushes easily but it's hard to look a guy in the face at meeting when you've heard him trying to birth a bowling ball five minutes prior. I've taken to using the stalls up a flight and across the building just to avoid those awful sounds.

On a related note, when I used to work down at a military research facilty in DC, they had these wonderful overhead fans in the bathroom that made a sound like a jet getting ready for take off. You could've belted "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in one of the stalls and no one in the bathroom would have been any the wiser. It's the only thing I miss about that job:)

And then there's our bathroom serving 14 people at the store. Arthur (not her real name), she of the butt crack, has some aversion to flushing. I don't know whether it is a family superstition or she has the attention span of a fruit fly, but many is the time when someone has gone into the bathroom, shouted the name of our redeemer (though not in a sense of worship), and flushed the toilet. I've written three reminders in our weekly newsletter about flushing and properly disposing of feminine hygiene products. When a person is in her mid 30's, it shouldn't be an issue. I suppose it's time once again to take her aside and review the basic principles of Personal Daintiness and Sharing Space with Others.

Man, I absolutely abhor bathroom talkers. I just want to go in, do my thing, and get out as quickly as possible. We can chat later, when there's not an echo, and I'm not in such an "awkward" position.

While this didn't happen at work, it did happen in a public place. I was about 13, or so, at Sizzler (remember that place?) with the parents. I went to the restroom, went in a stall and "dropped the kids off." This guy in the next stall just started talking to me, saying things like, "They have good food here, don't they?" I finished quickly and got the hell out of dodge. That's probably what started my fear of public restrooms.

I am proud to say that I have the longest streak of total years not going to the bathroom at school with 5. Cal's got nothing on me! I just hold it untill I get home.

I never went one time to "drop the kids at the pool" at school. Ever. I do take pride in using the facilities in both the home and visitor's clubhouse where the Syracuse Chiefs play (I refuse to call em the SkyChiefs)

Also at my place of employment is the guy who brushes his teeth after lunch. Ugh. For some reason, when I'm on the can and no one else but the brusher is in there, the sound of teeth brushing annoys the hell out of me. At least close your mouth while you brush! Guh!

Dude, you're completely missing out! Say a class period is roughly an hour (when I was in high-school they were 55 minutes). If you can spend 10 mins squeezing out a deuce, you've just taken up almost 1/6 of the class period! I used to try to go as often as possible!

Well, I do "go to the bathroom", I just don't actually go to the bathroom. During a class I have an easy "A" in I will take a nice lap or two around the school.

I work with a lot of Indians. Talk about spitting food and taking a bath in the sink...Wash your hands after that...

I have absolutely no idea what I would have said to the guy. Man, I have seen some crazy things but that would top the cake!

Just say, "No, thank you. Gambling is a sin." :D

    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.   
    • And I think that’s fair. I’m just saying that I think it’s quite possible he would get that bump in today’s game given the emphasis on K’s from a pitching standpoint and hitter’s aggression and willingness to strike out.  It’s definitely a different game though. 
    • Yeah, I am sure Frank Robinson and Hank Aaron would have been just terrified by Kevin Gausman and Tommy Hunter.....lol.
