The most convenient restroom to my office, is a unisex bathroom in the office next door. It’s always awkward when you use it, because you often run into the person who has used the restroom before you, or into the person who will be using the restroom after you. Today I happened to run into my project manager…
And he, like most men, had left the seat of the toilet up.
Anyways, the acoustics in the bathroom are pretty loud, so you can hear what is going on in there…say like, the dropping of the seat of a toilet.
So when I came out of the bathroom, one of the people from the office next door was in the kitchen area right next to the bathroom and I had the following conversation with him:
Guy from Next Door: “I think you might need to have a restroom etiquette conversation with Mr. (*Insert Project Manger’s name).”
Me: “Ummm, I, uh…. about what exactly?
Guy from Next Door: “Leaving the toilet seat up. It’s a pet peeve of mine.”
Me: *thinking to myself, “why are you listening to me in the bathroom...”* “Mine too, but he’s my project manager so I don’t believe I will be having that conversation with him anytime soon…”
Guy from Next Door: “Oh, he’s you project manager. Then maybe you shouldn’t, I think I will though.”
Me: “Yeah…You go right ahead and do that. Let me know how that goes.”
Don’t think I’ll be using that bathroom again, anytime soon. Seriously, probably the most bizarre and random conversation I have ever had in my life.
