While I was at school today, grading final essays and calculating final grades for my summer composition students, I went to use the restroom. Upon entering the restroom, I hear someone talking, and without seeing him, he was around a corner, I figured there were a few people there. Not so. This guy was standing at the urinal talking to someone on his cell phone. When he finished going to the bathroom, he flushed the toilet, and he kept talking -- no break in the conversation or anything. I expected him to have to explain to the other person that he was, indeed, in the bathroom, but there was no such talk. Maybe this is common, and I am getting old fashioned, but I don't want to know when someone is using the bathroom -- especially if I am talking to him on the phone. I can't even begin to imagine this one. For those who read this blog and talk to me on the phone, consider yourself warned. If I hear a toilet flushing, I am hanging up immediately.
