Social Blunder #273

Do NOT answer your cell phone while you're using the restroom. This is doubly so when it is a public one.

    Uh-oh, did the phone get a little wet?

    Happy Friday the 13th, by the way.

    The point is that you’re not supposed to talk to people on the phone while pooping. I thought that went without saying.

    Well, and the public bathroom thing especially. Because let's say you're not concerned about people hearing your poop-grunting noises. And let's say the person you're talking to is fine with it, too. Good for you. Except that if I'm in the bathroom, too, and I'm making bathroom noises (#1 or #2, it doesn't really matter), I'm NOT fine with the person on the other end of the line listening in.

    I am VERY firm on this rule. When I hear a phone call in a public restroom, however, I make SURE the person they are talking to KNOWS where their friend is. I flush and if I am especially brave/rude I make extra sound effects.

    Sweet. But we’re all okay with talking on the phone while we’re naked, right? Like someone calls right before you get in the shower and you want to talk to them so you just stay naked and then your husband say he’ll use the shower instead and you say sure so your friend now knows you’re both naked. That’s okay, right?
    Too much information?

  7. Shauna says:

    I think that’s perfectly acceptable, especially if your friend is aware that you’re naked. I always tell people when I am. Usually after the “hello” is said, “how are you?” is the next thing… I like to answer, “naked”

  8. Kris says:

    I swear we’re sharing a brain.

  9. The Other Shauna says:

    A naked brain.

    First, I am still going to take pictures in public restrooms.

    Second, somewhat related, I was unable to pick up a call the other night because I was holding a man’s privates. Should I have picked up?

    Third, two nights ago, I received a voice mail from a new linkup friend that was nothing but a toilet flushing. It was so sweet. I think I’m in love.
