Bathroom Phone Call

I am innocently changing my clothes in the gym handicap stall (yes, again...and by the way....I've only ever seen one wheelchair in the gym in my almost 5 years attending) yesterday when it happens...

*Ring! Ring! Ring!* (actually, it was probably some random song....)
*Hello?*

Astonishment! Abhorrence! To hear that phone answered! There are certain things that happen in a public restroom that send shivers up and down my spine. For obvious reasons, you know the person is using the restroom, and there was no doubt in my mind about the guilty-party's usage. She finished her business, flushed, washed her hands - the whole kit and kaboodle while she was on the phone.

Ok, so maybe when you are at home - I know we are all guilty. But, but, but....I have no words..>EWWWWWWW!

On another note - what about the person on the other end? How do they feel knowing you are treating them like crap? :-)

oh man. I have NEVER done that, for the record, but I do have an awesome story for you. One that I dont dare share here in case someone reads it and thinks less of me for telling such a story. :)

the person on the other line knows you are in the bathroom just by the echo in your voice, but if that doesn't sell them the flush of the toilet will. Doing this in your own bathroom is risky enough and should never be attempted in public.

What's wrong with spending some quality time with your loved ones on the phone in the loo, eating your candy and maybe knitting? Kidding of course. I am always disturbed by this phenomenon. I am also a hand washer police-woman. Only I give out mental tickets by way of dirty looks.
