Do You Talk To Others While In The Bathroom?

Fri Jul 11, 2003 9:33 am

Don't you just hate it when you are going to the bathroom in a public restroom and somebody starts talking to you.

Like someone you know will be going right next to you and then they just start talking to you about your day or something. It's just really weird.

no joke....
I always feel like they are trying to take a "peek"...and that bugs me. I'm all for being social (I can strike up a somewhat interesting conversation with just about anyone) but...not in the WC!

Depends on the circumstances... Keeping it brief; Keeping it gruff. However, it's always a drag when the other person leaves and you're there talking to yourself  Laugh out loud

WC? Gruff?

What does that mean?

I am one of those people who talk in the bathroom, but usually to crack a joke, not socializing. Or to let people know that they are about to smell the "tail end" of my protein shake.

"Excuse me, sir. Do you smell that?"

"Smell what?"

"Give it a few seconds."  Big grin

Generally NO!


Except the following:

When waiting in line to use the dunnies [whether that be queuing inside or outside] at a Dance Party or Nightclub when you and everyone else is totally wasted halfway through the morning.

You'd be surprised how chatty everyone is.

Cheers,

Talking to the guy next to you while at the urinals is a big No-No in my book. Maybe because I have issues with my personal space, but don't talk to me while I am taking a dump or a piss.

Same rule also goes for talking to somebody on the phone. Something just seems unsavory about pinching a log and talking to your mom.

Here are the rules I go by.

1. Strangers never. (Unless there missing the bowl)

2. If I'm "droping some balast" Never Never Never.

3. Talking to a friend is OK. but it can't be bathroom talk.

3a. There must be at least a 1 urnial gap between us.

4. Any comments like "Take a look at this dump" Requiers an ass kicking as soon as that person leaves the bathroom.



BigPhilNyc,

WC is short for Water Closet.

Interesting! I guess women are different. You go into any womens bathroom and we are talking a mile a minute. Stall to stall, stall to sink (one washing hands, one still in stall), it doesnt matter at all to us. No silence around there  Smile

SWA TPA, I completely agree! I've started a conversation with a friend of mine while walking to the bathroom, continued it while in there and then just kept it going after we walked out. No big deal at all  Smile

I'd rather not talk to anyone while I am in the stall. I hated it when I was in college, and someone would walk in, and say - what's up, Alex? It's 3 a.m. in the morning, you can see my feet. What do you think is up?

If a guy in the urinal next to me starts talking, I'm either going to:

a) whizz on him
b) punch his daylights out

I'm trying to finish my "business". No need to bring in any conversation. Urinal Real Estate in my High School is in high demand and in low availability. You go in, do you business, wash your hands, and leave. For girls it's probably different...more social and all...the bathroom is a place to talk about guys behind their backs.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Talking is usually a no, but I've had some experiences when someone would strike up a convo while I'm taking a piss, that wasn't the best, but the convo was good!

Violence for urinal conversation?

What would you do if I grabbed your balls and hung out the ground by them? Shit.

I've had some of the funniest exchanges at hte urinal. It's great. True story:

A friend and a stranger were at a urinal. The stranger rips a fart and looks embarrassingly to my friend as he blames the protein. "What kind do you take?" my friend asked. The guy replied "Isopure." With that my friend ripped one evne louder and longer and siad "I take the same one."

I mena, I don't see the problem with it. Some guys get too protective when they have their penises out.

As I type this, I'm not wearing any pants!
Seriously, have any of you ever thought about what kind of situation the posters on this thread are in when they type on here?

Sorry...digression.

Back to topic: it's like the ATM. Everyone's defensive because they've just taken valuables out of their pants and are making a transaction. There is a time and a place for everything and I certainly think that the lav is NOT the place for a polite discussion of current affairs/what have you.

I guess it depends on if its a stranger or someone you know and what you're doing. If I'm just peeing I don't mind talking to a friend, but if I'm taking a dump its "me time" and I want to be left alone. How do you even strike up a converstaion with a stranger in a bathroom?

Well, I was presenting an outsourced HR solution to a major US Consultancy firm and we stopped for a 5 minute break. One of the guys I was presenting to went into the toilet and even though we were both pissing in different stalls he was asking me about cost savings and strategic partnerships. Kind of difficult to think on your feet when you have your d*ck in one hand taking a leak. Still, I closed the deal, so it worked out well! Big grin
