Two Bathroom Infractions in a Row

Yesterday was apparently National Disrespect Public Bathrooms Day. Who forgot to tell me?

As I walked in to the bathroom I noticed there was someone in a stall. No biggie. I took care of my own business and heard him flush the toilet. He then proceeded to exit the bathroom without washing his hands. You know how that makes me feel.

But that might have been topped by the next guy, who came in… with his laptop! In a public bathroom! We exchanged glances (the look on my face was easily, “WTF?”) before he scurried into the stall. As I left I noticed he had set the computer down on the floor.

Come on now, there can’t be any circumstance ever that requires a person to take his laptop into the friggin’ toilet. Unless the toilet is Bluetooth enabled, I guess.

Wow. I can’t believe I need to chime in here.

I use Skype for my phone calls exclusively right now. In any case,
I was waiting for a call from a prospective job offer, and he was running late. Problem is…I **really** needed to go to the bathroom. Even though I’ve got voicemail and everything through Skype, I really couldn’t afford to miss this call. So…yep…laptop and headset…to the bathroom. What a sight I must have been carrying that into the john.

Fortunately, the call came a few minutes after my “business concluded” in the WC. I guess that’s a rare case, but at least it was ONE circumstance.

Your guy was probably looking at porn, which doesn’t count.

Press F6 to flush.

What about those who want to cover the seat with paper from the dispenser provided for that purpose? Then after they finish they decide the stall needs to to be decorated with the bog paper instead of flushing it away. Then there are the third world types who squat on the seat and miss the hole.

What is this then?
