I’m at work when the sudden urge to urinate hits me. I walk into the bathroom, notice one stall is in use, and just keep walking. All of a sudden, I hear my boss’ voice coming from the stall asking me a couple of questions about a project. He keeps talking so I basically have to stand there, listen, and reply while he sits there merrily contracting certain muscles that I don’t want to think about.
This vaguely disturbs me for 2 reason.
- He feels perfectly comfortable talking in that situation. This does not strike me as the best place to talk business.
- He somehow was looking to be able to tell it was me. Couldn’t have been the shoes, he had no angle to see. This means that while he sits there squeezing for all he is worth, he is peeking through the space between the doors and thinking of inane questions to pepper me with while I get to breathe his less than fragrant outpourings.
I need to go home and take a long shower now.
