Public restrooms and cell phones

Isn't that sooo gross when someone is talking on their cell phone when they are using a stall in the restrooms? I feel so grossed out for the person on the other side who has no idea that the person they are talking to is has the pants around their ankles and is taking a dump while talking to them.

Is it really that big a burden to wait till your done and just call em back?

  • I think cell phones have seriously dumbed down American. When people can't even take a shit without taking to someone on the phone then we have a serious problem.

  • Doesn't bother me much. I try not to do it very much in respect for those that it does bother, but if I'm the only one there, I'll keep the conversation going. Most of the people I talk to know that I'll talk while on the toilet. Most of them do the same. Like I said in your other question, we're pretty open people. :-)

  • LOL - it is a little gross. I have been known to text from the bathroom though, sometimes it's the only chance I get.

  • "wow that means there is shit on there phone cause how do they wipe there ass gross"

    The good old fashion between the head and shoulder from wiping to after hand washing. It takes practice :-)

  • I don't do it, but I wouldn't probably even notice if the person on the other side of the phone was doing it.

  • I've never done it in public, but if I need to go while on the phone at home.....I'll go.

    What makes you grossed out for the person on the other end? They don't have to see it, they don't have to smell it, they don't even have to know. (For all you know, 3 of the posters on this thread have their laptops in their lap, sitting on the commode. Think about that one from now on ;))

    People use the bathroom. It's a fact of life.
