Texting While Peeing

A while ago a rather clever Windows Phone commercial showed a man using his phone while peeing into a urinal. And when I saw that I thought, “Well, certainly no one would actually do that!” Oh, but i was wrong.

I stepped into a bathroom yesterday and saw a fellow standing at a urinal. I walked over to the sink first and suddenly heard a familiar tap-tap-tap sound. I looked in the mirror and sure enough, the guy at the urinal was texting with one hand. His other hand wasn’t doing anything insofar as I could tell.

I mean, people using phones while pooping… okay, I can’t see it and hopefully can’t hear it, but it’s still weird. But at the urinal? We’re crossing lines here, people.

Oh my.

Ten to one odds that he didn’t wash his hands, either.

I will now think twice before asking to use or handle someone else’s phone.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
