Okay, this is one for the fellas. Can you please explain to me why it's necessary to take the newspaper or some other reading material to the bathroom with you? A friend brought this dirty and annoying habit to my attention.
So, in her office there is a public newspaper, which is left in the break area. A couple days ago, she saw a coworker seize the paper on his way to the mens room. Now, it's obvious that he didn't go in there to piss or he wouldn't have taken a newspaper; well unless he planned on performing some amazing feat while pissing...I don't even want to try to imagine that. Anyhoo, I am still trying to decipher the need to read and poop.
It's bad enough that germs and bacteria exist just about everywhere, but does one really need to share them with fellow coworkers even more so? I think not. Going to the bathroom to shit, should be just that. Go in; shit; wipe your ass, wash your hand, and go on about your business. All I can see in my head is some dude going into the stall with the paper under his arm as he pulls his pants down and sits on the seat. He starts reading the paper as he grunts his shit out. I'm not sure where he puts the paper (probably on the floor ) as he wipes his ass and pulls his pants up. Now, the paper is contaminated at this point; more so than before because of the fecal matter that could be on dude's hands. Said newspaper is carried back out to the breakroom and dropped off after the read-n-shit activity and left for some other man to take into the restroom or some other unsuspecting coworker to pick up and play in someone else's shit. Say it with me people cause I know you're thinking it...."THAT'S EFFIN NASTY!"
Shaking my damn head wondering the the mens room on my floor has a book shelf in it!!!
