    She said *what* ?!?!?

    Ok, I think this is one of the weirdest customs we have acquired in this age of technology. Weirder even than the dude with the bluetooth on his ear who looks you in the eyes and speaks nonsense...then you realize he's just having a phone conversation. Just to be wander in a...

    Cell Phones! Grr!!!

    Basically I hate cell phones in general. I hate that I never know if I should flush or not in the bathroom because someone is in the middle of a conversation. Also, what kind of germs are on that cell phone after it goes into the bathroom? On hand is holding the phone, the other...

    Whooosshhh!!!!

    There can't be a worse place to make a phone call than a public bathroom. It can be kind of echoey in there, hardly private since other people are coming and going and flushing the toilet. I'll hear talking from a nearby stall, know that person is on their cell phone and have...

    Etiquette?

    I read in a business article that says using the cell in anyway, to check messages, to text, calls, etc. is incredibly rude while in any type of meeting. The article encouraged readers that if they must check their cell, go to the bathroom. I can understand that. I do not...

    Don't Bother Me, I'm In the Middle of a $#1+!

    What's so important that it can't wait until you pee or shi*t?  Have some people no sense of decency or manners or do they feel like they're multi-tasking by talking on the phone and wiping their a-ss at the same time?  I will not answer the phone if I'm in a...

    It's Annoying!

    It's so annoying to see people with cell phones and blackberries in the bathroom. They should ban this!

    I Always Have The Urge...

    to make really loud, rude bathroom sounds whenever I hear someone in the next stall talking on the phone. But I wonder if they'd even be embarrassed.

    Dolby Surround!

    Why is it you can go to a lecture or be at a convention and can barely hear the speaker because of the terrible acoustics & sound, but public bathrooms sound like a theater with surround sound in there?

    Really ... I'm in a stall having a poo.

    A phone rings in the stall next door and I hear "hello" I mean how ******* important can that call be that you have to answer it while in a public bathroom.

    NASTY

    This is a nasty thing. I am sure that whatever you have to say can wait. Surly it is not that important to answer the phone right then. If you are on the phone call them back. what you have to say can wait. AND ABOVE ALL WASH YOUR HANDS.
