I went to the restroom, and as I approached the door, I heard someone talking. Not unusual, since women talk in the restroom all the time. However, this time, it was a woman talking on her cell phone. I have before encountered the stall-dweller who insists on answering the cell phone while they urinate or perform other bodily functions. But this time, she was just standing in the restroom talking on the cell phone. Approximately 5 steps from where she stood was the door, which led to a perfectly good hallway for cell phone conversations. Maybe she likes the acoustics of the ceramic tile-covered latrine? I don't know. But it was very awkward for me to enter the stall, tinkle, and then proceed to flush, all while she was carrying on a conversation with someone. And I happen to know that the "someone" was a male, because he was talking so loudly on the other end of the phone that I could hear him from inside the stall. So between her sentences, he heard the sounds of my pants zipper, followed by the usual tinkle, tinkle, tinkle..., thunder of the industrial-sized toilet paper roll, and finally the very loud automatic toilet flushing. That was probably a bit awkward for him.
Anyway, please hang up or step outside to carry on your cell phone conversation, and let us urinate in peace. Thank you.
(When she got off the phone, she did tell me that my sweater looked "really pretty" on me, so of course I had to forgive her after that compliment.)
