Word to the wise. Don't ever stand in the middle of a men's room having an active conversation on the phone and try to play it off like you're not doing exactly that - having a conversation, in a bathroom, on the phone. Don't say that you're in your car in a thunderstorm. No one's going to buy that. The pee sounds from the men using the bathroom for its intended purpose - and silently wondering what kind of asshat has an actual phone conversation in a men's room - don't sound like rain. Flushing toilets don't sound like thunder. They sound like toilets. Flushing. And the fart that one guy ripped in the corner stall? How do you explain that? "Oh, um, yeah, well the the rain was coming down so hard I apparently hit a waterbuffalo". If you're going to stand in a bathroom having a conversation, own it. Say I'm in the bathroom and the guy in the corner stall has a serious gastrointestinal problem but please go on and tell me about your day or whatever.
Please note: I did not learn this through doing, merely observing.Posted by Chris at August 9, 2012 7:44 AM
