That's right I said it... bathroom etiquette. What are the rules? When is it ok to say hi and when it is just plain awkward.
So I have been at my job for a little over five months and every time that I run into a co-worker in the bathroom I never really know how to react. For me going to the little girl's room has always been a private matter and I like my privacy. I don't want to be having a conversation with someone in the bathroom while I am relieving my self... it's just not cute. Now in bars and stuff it's different people are in and out as fast as they can so get back to the dance floor. However, at work it is different. People go into the bathroom and chat, or freshen up, and even poo. Now I know that it is a natural process and everyone does it, but girl do it at home. I do not ever do it in public I am just not that kind of girl. So when I walk into the bathroom and there is someone in the stall next to me whose shoe are obivous point away from the toilet you know they are taking a shit. Know I always try and either beat them out of the bathroom, or wait till they leave before exiting my stall. But sometimes it is just unavoidable. Like the other day I walk into my stall and there is someone next to me, so I try and hurry, but apparently so did he. We end up walking out at the same time and it's a co-work. "oh hi martin" he says very chipper and I'll I can think is you just took a huge shit... at work. Now I have only worked there for a small amount of time compared him and there was once that I could wait until I got home so I went to the next floor up and found out that there is a nice private single toilet bathroom to do your business. Is it just me or is this normal. Do most people not have a problem with pooing at work? Like just yesterday I was coming out of the bathroom and a co-worker was walking in with a NEWSPAPER! I mean really... you are going to be in there long enough to read the newspaper?!
I guess I was told once that its a great feeling to get paid to poo.
