Bathroom conversations...


Today I went to Barnes and Noble again. And, I had to use the "facilities".


A lady walked in before me.


A crazy lady, apparently.


She just started talking to me like she knew me.


CL (crazy lady)- This stall doesn't have any seat covers.


Me- silence


CL- Maybe I just don't know how to use them


Me- looks like you have to pull down


CL- Maybe. The last person in here didn't flush. I would think that a woman would flush. I don't think men flush, but a woman should know better and should flush.


Me (as I'm sitting there doing my business)- uh-huh


CL- I was really disappointed at the bank today.


Me- silence


CL- yeah, I went into the bank and asked them for the number to the corporate office because I am a cleaning lady and I thought maybe I could clean for them...


Me- silence as I'm washing my hands


CL- and the manager of the bank said she didn't know the number to the corporate office. Don't you think the manager should know the number to the corporate office?


Me- I'm leaving now


Wow. I hope I never am so lonely or crazy that I just start STUPID conversations in the BATHROOM with random strangers!!!

I hate it when people want to talk when I'm standing at the urinals. Shut the fuck up and let me piss in peace. At least at the urinal if they really bug me I can piss on them.

I thought the bathroom etiquette required NO TALKING?

Some Guy said...

Bathroom talking is a big no-no. There should be signs - NO TALKING.

But did CL ever get the phone number to the corporate office? Don't leave us hanging, for Christ sakes.

I agree with everyone... NO TALKING.


But, coffeypot... you will be glad to know that I went back, and CL was there again. I asked about the whole phone number thing, and as a matter of fact she DID get the number and is now cleaning for the bank.

I'm also a big liar.

Making fun of me are you? All I can say is, have your heard of the 2nd Amendment?

On the other hand, I watched some talk show hosted by Gram somebody, and he had Sharon Glass and Tyne Daily (of Cagney and Lacey fame) on the show. He had a hidden microphone in a ladies restroom and had Sharon and Tyne adlib as if they were in the stall. When a woman or two came in, they would give the mike to the guest. It was hilarious. Gram made a real loud farting sound into the mike and Sharon said, “I don’t remember eating that thing.” It may be on YouTube and it would be well worth watching.

yeah but...
Don't you think the manager SHOULD know the number to the corporate office?

Amy said...

I'll have to check that out on youtube.

And, I'm guessing the manager conveniently had a brain fart. I would too.

Amy, I posted the skit I mentioned above on my site. If you haven't seen it, stop by and enjoy.

Not a single "wide stance" joke yet?

Whenever in that situation just do the old. "Got your nose". You know - how you do to kids? Then just stare. Believe me, they'll leave.
