Bathroom Talk(ing)

We are all entitled to our own opinions and we all have our own preferences so bare with me as I share mine. 

When using a public restroom I prefer not to carry on a conversation or chit chat with anyone in a neighboring stall. 

Once the stall door closes all conversations should stop. I will not answer you while I tinkle. I don't care if you're my best friend, family member, or stranger...I don't talk while on the toilet. 

Tonight while at my weekly bowling league I went to  the restroom for a pre-game tinkle. Another bowler was also in the restroom and we greeted each other.  I proceeded to go into a stall while she went into the stall beside me and attempted to carry on a little chit chat with me. I did not reciprocate. 

Now what makes this 10x's worse is that shortly after the fellow bowler entered the stall she let out one of the grossest, loudest, and longest toilet farts I have ever heard!!!! Now I know that everyone (yes everyone) farts and has probably let a few toilet farts go before, but when using a public bathroom you'd think that a person would at least wait until a toilet flushes or fake a cough to cover the sound. I had to bite my lip hard to keep from bursting out in laughter. 

I tried to get out of the stall to wash my hands and leave the bathroom as soon as I could in order to avoid eye contact with this women when she emerged from her stall but I didn't make it! 

This is my punishment for not chit chatting with this women in the bathroom stall. I can never look at this women or speak to her again without thinking about the toilet fart. She could bowl a 300 game and I would still think, "You are a public restroom talking toilet farter". 


  1. I can live with the fart but I would probably hide in the cubicle until the other person left, but what I really hate is people who talk on their cell phones in the bathroom! Ugh! Horrible.

  2. I would have thought she'd wait for you to leave so she wouldn't have to make eye contact with you. She must be comfortable in her public restroom talking toilet farter persona. :o)

    Have a great weekend! La

  3. I couldn't help but chuckle and giggle.

  4. So with you on this one...don't talk to me on the toilet ever ;) And I also hate it when people talk on their cell phones in publich makes my bladder/kidneys stop working all

  5. Oh, my...I'm not a public restroom chit chatter either. Occasionally I will finish a conversation with someone that I began before entering the stall...but it really makes me uncomfortable.

    I also, for the record, hate when people ANSWER their phone or send me texts/e-mails from the boss does that & I KNOW he's in the bathroom because we only have a uni-sex public bathroom. It drives me nuts.

    Of course, he knows that it aggravates me...and I think he just does it sometimes to aggravate me!

  6. I am very mad....just responded with a very lengthy post, only to be told unable to I can't respond.

  7. A friend of mine was traveling with a music group representing her college. One day, she and a couple of other girls in the music group were in the restroom in a mall. A little old lady entered the restroom and went into a stall near them. After a few moments she was clearly heard saying, "CORN!!! WHEN DID I HAVE CORN???"

  8. OMG....that is so gross, but funny! bwahahaha


I love hearing from you, please leave a comment.
