At the time this happened, I was working for a big financial institution.
I have a pet peeve regarding people speaking on their cell phone while in a public restroom. I feel that it is rude to the other people using the facilities as well as disrespectful of the person you are speaking with.
One day, while using the facilities at work, a co-worker came in talking on her phone. As I am standing at the sink, washing my hands, the following conversation happens:
Miss Rude Co-Worker: “You know, I don’t appreciate you being so loud while I was on the phone.”
Me: *mimicking her tone of voice* “You know, I don’t appreciate you being on the phone while I’m trying to pee.” 0131-13
Whoa! Your co-worker had the audacity to rebuke you for body noises you made while in the toilet stall while she was on the phone? Oh….oh my. That’s a new one. Guilt manipulating others with warped accusations of ill manners to assuage their own poor judgment is nothing new, of course, but I can’t say I’ve ever heard of this excuse to justify cell phone usage in an operational bathroom. Too bad you did not use the facilities to the fullest extent of your internal organs and let loose with an auditory fusillade of epic proportions or loudly asked, “Does anyone have some extra toilet paper? Mine is out.”
