Overheard this morning in the office cafeteria....
"Well, I like using bathrooms."

I'm right there with you, dude. But I find myself wondering, what makes bathrooms so likable to you? What are your alternative methods that you felt the need to emphasize this in conversation?

Ha!

When my friends and I were out on the town in NYC many years ago, I visited the bathroom of one of the bars we were at. There was a guy that came into the bathroom as I was doing my business and selected the urinal *right* next to mine. (There were four others!) Then, precisely at that moment of first release, he exhaled in this happy sigh. "Oh.. GOD I'm glad this pisser is right here!!!" Being a bit inebriated, I don't remember what, if anything I said... but I do remember wanting to FLEE ASAP.

Kumar vs. the pissing bush??? I LIVED IT.

Not so bad when you're inebriated. :)

Still, the "flee" response is still there.

He violated Male Restroom Etiquette by:

1.) Picking a urinal next to one in use.
2.) Talking to you.

There's an etiquette? Heh.. oddly, when my coworkers visit the urinal in our "two urinal" bathroom at the lab, we just "talk shop". Its more awkward to say nothing.

You know, I lived in a house once that still had an outhouse instead of a WC. You might even recall the quaint portapotty I had on my dirtfarm around the time you visited. I find myself in agreement with your coworker.

Policeman opening doors of Social Security office: Before I let you in, does anyone have any weapons?
Tiny old lady jumping the queue: Just my fist!

Moody college girl on phone: No, I have to go the macro class right now and pretend to be a Republican. If you don't agree with the professor, you're wrong.
(pause)
Moody college girl: Yeah, if I can pull this off I deserve an Emmy, or an Oscar. Hell, I'll take a cookie!

Professor: Will someone please close the door? I don't want anyone else to hear the stupid things I say. Oh, wait, I have tenure now--I don't care if they hear me saying stupid things!

Sounds like my high school Spanish teacher. Spoke better Spanish when he was speaking English, better English when he spoke Spanish. I don't know how I barely passed that class. Also... he was like a billion years old.

Perhaps you missed part of the conversation, where the person commented on what he liked using bathrooms for?

He may well know our own Senator Larry Craig.
