“Have you ever talked on your cellphone in the bathroom? I don’t think I have, but I know that I don’t turn it off when I go into the bathroom. It could easily ring, but mine never has. Last week I went in the bathroom the same time as this guy (at [local university]) who – while talking on the phone – took a leak, washed his hands, and left while carrying on a conversation. I thought that was weird – but not unheard of. But yesterday I saw someone who TOTALLY crossed the line. The office area at [place of business] has wireless access. He took his laptop (which was opened up and running) into the stall with him. Now that’s just not right.”

So it rang a few times and I heard him pick it up. He was deciding whether or not to answer it. Then I heard, “Hello?”. He answered the phone while on the pot! OK, not the worst thing in the world, he just needed to talk softly and be cautious right? So he said a few sentences and then let a big one rip. Oops! Shouldn’t have answered the phone.1/10/2003
