This came today from Doniker:
I know we have been though this time and time again, but I want to again
applaud those people known as the "shameless shitters."
There I was in the bathroom at work, peeing in the urinal, when a
co-worker I barely know walks in, happy as can be and says "how you doin'!"
He then enters a stall, pulls down his pants, sits down on the can and
starts farting away! Then there is the sound of splashing as his turds hit
the water. He's 100% shameless!
If I had been in his shoes and had entered the bathroom looking to take
a dump and seen someone at the urinal, I would have walked up to another
urinal and faked a pee. If I am already in a stall and somebody enters, I
am quiet as a mouse until they leave.
I wish I could be a shameless shitter, it would take a lot of stress out
of my endless daily ritual of holding it in or trying to find the right
time and place to shit.
I'm just like Doniker. If I'm headed towards the bathroom
and I see a coworker headed in even remotely the same direction, I'll turn
around right there. I've been known to alter my destination in mid-stride
and pretend like I'm going to the receptionist's desk or to the elevator,
rather than meet someone at the bathroom door. And like Doniker, there's
no way I'll exit my stall if someone else is in the bathroom.
Are we the only ones? Dear Reader, how do you react when it's time for
your office poo? Are you a shameless shitter -- one who doesn't care who
sees you or hears you or smells you? Or are you like me and
Doniker -- someone who will go to ridiculous lengths to ensure our private
business stays private?
