Another Etiquette question
Ok, so I go into the work restroom to make use of the facilities, sit down and get ready to do my business (read: "take a crap")... When suddenly I realize that the guy occupying the stall next to me seems to be in deep conversation with a customer.

Knowing the sounds that may emanate while using the facilities, is it proper etiquette to torture myself by clamping off the exit ramp until he's finished, or is he so much in the wrong by talking to a customer in the bathroom that any noise I make that the customer hears is HIS fault?

Do yourself and everyone else a favor, crap at home.

Crap at home.



At times, this is NOT an option.

I'm not sure but if the answer involves a finger bowl and a salad fork I don't want to be right.

As long as he doesn't know who is in the next stall (e.g., who you are), then fire away!

I would try to make it as loud as possible, too. Maybe some expressions like "Oh God, I think my liver is disengaging" or "Man, that one felt like my pancreas exploding!" would go over well.

As he should be if he's doing business other than #1 or #2 in the bathroom. I'd hate to know I was on the phone with someone who was dropping the kids off at the pool.

How about faking one off the wrist, with appropriate noises, accompanied by a quick wipe of the floor near his side with some toilet paper?

The real issue is that you should be executed for shitting in the bathroom at work.

NUMBER ONE ONLY. DO YOUR POOP AT HOME.

Agree. I have like a 12 year run going on not shitting anywhere but home. It's a Ripkenesque type streak.

I worry about trying this, then having a sudden sneezing fit and having to clean far more of my cubicle than I intended to.

Nope.

Even if you don't make *** music, the groans and exclamations should get the message across.

Get up mega-early, have some eggs and coffee, and all will be done before you leave for work.

p.s. It's threads like this that attracted me to this sports bord.

When on vacation your hotel/condo counts as your home. So does the ocean and pool.

I'm sorry, but you people who hold it till you get home are crazy. I'd rather poop in a public bathroom than sit around miserable all day trying to hold it.

There was a guy who worked at GMAC who used to talk to his poop to encourage it out...one of my male coworkers used to come out of the bathroom laughing and would share EJ's poop cheers with me. He'd apparently moan a lot, too.
