Pooping at work, it’s not something that I particularly enjoy, but it’s got to be done.
Here are some of my thoughts.
I think this should be a rule. Don’t comment on another’s stink or sounds while in the bathroom. (you can totally tell all the cube mates when you get back to the desk) IE: “Man! Johnson was really tearing it up in the bathroom” or just a simple “Whooooo man! ” will do. But I do not want to have a conversation with the guy in the next stall.
I always tuck my work ID into my pocket while I’m doing the deed. I’m in there struggling with a bran muffin and a grande coffee I don’t need to be identified by name and face. It’s bad enough that I’m probably the only person in the office that’s wearing jeans and black and white Nike Airs, I don’t need any more identification.
When I’m in there making soft serve ice cream in the first stall, do not pee in the urinal directly next to me when there are 3 other free ones that don’t put us uncomfortably close to each other.
Not a sermon, just a thought.
