I am so loving these stories, and I am not even sure why. Up until a few days ago, I didn't have anything to add.
PossibleWay too much TMI!!!
I realize that public bathrooms are for all types of "business", but on this particular day, myself and 2 co-workers almost lost our lunches. I have a very sensitive gag reflex, which is triggered by bad smells. On this particular day, I went into the bathroom, then co-worker one, then person who chose the stall closest to the door for their smelly business, and then co-worker #2.
Person in 1st stall proceeded to vocally (with her mouth,) gotta love people who talk to themselves while doing their business, "fumigate" the bathroom. I was in the 2nd set of stalls which is seperated from the 1st set by a wall. When I came out of the stall, and around the corner, I was ambushed by the smell. I took a quick breath and started washing my hands. I knew I was not going to be able to finish rinsing, and just grabbed some paper towels, and beelined for the door. Co-Worker # 1 came out of her stall as I was making my dash for the door, and she followed me.
She didn't was her hands in the bathroom, but said she was going into our breakroom to wash. Co-Worker #2 caught up to me as I got to my dept, and she was trying really hard to not gag. I have smelled dead rotting animals that did not smell that bad.
P.S. I love the phrase squirrel puddles.
