Potty Etiquette

Why do people feel it is appropriate to have a conversation through the bathroom stall walls? I feel there is a certain amount of bathroom etiquette that everyone should follow. I am one of those people that would actually like to be ignored while in the bathroom, but I know that everybody is not like me. I am very uncomfortable when a person starts, NOT continues, but starts a conversation with you while you using the bathroom. “It’s such a beautiful day out today? Do you know what the weather is going to be like over the weekend? What are you plans?”
How do you avoid this? You cannot be rude and refuse to answer because they will just repeat LOUDER what they originally said. So I push through my discomfort and quietly answer the questions being asked. It does make me speed up and run as fast as I can OUT of the bathroom.


  1. haha! you want to talk about potty etiquette?! What about that memo all the females in our office got this week?! People do crazy things in public bathrooms. Things they would never do at home.

  2. I want to see a copy of that memo first of all, secondly, just say, HOLD ON LET ME ANSWER YOU WHEN I FINISH. And then you ignore them.

  3. ok ... what was the memo?
