I was just in the ladies’ room and am wondering what was going on in there. There has been a chair in the handicap* stall for weeks. When I was in the ladies’ today, there was someone in there, in the chair. An extension cord was run from the only accessible outlet into the stall. Some sort of device was running in there that had the sound of some sort of pump. The pace of the pump seemed too fast for a nebulizer-type treatment, but I could be wrong. I also thought about portable dialysis machines, but I have no idea if they sound like that or not. So I put it to the Dope: what is most likely being done in there?**
*Don’t scold me for using “handicap”. I didn’t invent the term, and it is still in use for parking and bathroom stalls.
**Yes, I know it’s none of my business, and I would never pry, or even try to see who was in the stall. I’m just curious in a general sort of way.
I think it depends on the number of employees. My office is tiny - maybe 9 people total - and there’s no way to provide a room to me, although everyone was quite kind about letting me use their office if they were out. I pumped in the bathroom, which was a hassle, but it really wasn’t that bad.
So, when she’s done pumping at work, what happens to the milk she’s pumped out? If someone is going to say it goes into the lunchroom fridge, I’m not sure I want to know that. (The phrase “half-and-half” is taking a whole new meaning all of a sudden. :eek: )
