Holy Demeter Mother of Persephone! Three posts in one day? Whatever has come over me? Count them - one post - two post - three - three posts - hahahaha-ha. (The Count would be proud - you gotta love a purple vampire).
But I had to share this.
So I go to the bathroom here at the office and a particularly chatty employee is going in at the same time. She proceeds to start chatting me up as we step into our individual stalls. I figure she'll stop once the locks are clicked - isn't that the unspoken rule? - but she continues. I'm peeing and you're peeing, I'm thinking, and I just don't think we should be talking. She even raised her voice to be heard over the pee tinkle.
I'm feeling a tad uncomfortable - but it's all cool - until she
I wasn't sure how to respond. "Thanks for sharing."; "Should I call a doctor?"; "So there is a plus side to being deaf." I chose to remain silent.
This is something you hear a fellow second-grader yell out from the stall next to you - it is not something you expect to hear from a 50+ year-old woman who makes sure she is saying it loud enough that everyone in the bathroom and anyone walking by in the hall can hear. Oh my god I have so much pee in me. Pee in me. Pee me. Oh my god. Indeed.
I don't even like for people to hear me peeing, much less announcing to the world that I'm gushing fountains of urine. I mean, was this really necessary? Did I or anyone else in the bathroom at that time need to know this? Did she REALLY need to share this tidbit of her personal lavatory affairs?
TGIF has never rang quite so true.
