It's come to my attention that women like to have in-depth conversations in the bathroom. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Picture yourself getting up from your desk and you head to the bathroom to do number 1. You walk into the bathroom, notice two women having a conversation and enter the stall. You assume they will wash their hands, squirt a dash of Purell and be on their merry way.
Nope. Doesn't happen.
As I start to relieve myself, the women continue their conversation.
And continue their conversation, and keep on freaking talking! There's no washing hands, there's no Purelling, there's just a continued conversation as I pee.
Look, I love to BS with my coworkers, but I ask you, move the conversation from the bathroom into the hallway.
It's uncomfortable for me to pee when people are chatting it up right outside my stall.
I've been known to strike up my coworker as I wash my hands but I try to quickly move whatever conversation we are having outside of the bathroom. I don't want to hang out in there.
But it doesn't stop there. I was at a wedding this weekend where two women decided to scatter their make-up kits and reapply their faces. I walked in and went to the bathroom and listened to the women talk about how "she weighed 98 pounds before giving birth and was the same weight after" as she applied another line of black eyeliner.
Reapplying eyeliner I get, but dumping your entire make-up kit on the counter is a little over the top. I have a feeling there were in there for a good 20 minutes.
Of all the rooms to hang out, I'd like to pick one with a better ventilation system. Just sayin'.
