Yesterday, I was in the bathroom at work. A couple seconds into, well, you know, I started hearing voices. This was initially very disconcerting until I discovered that they were actually quite encouraging though somewhat pressed for time.
Voices: Five! Four! Three! Two! One!
Inner Monologue: Wow, I didn't know they put a time limit on peeing around here. That's a commitment to productivity right there.
A few seconds later...
Voices: Go! That's right! You're doing great! Keep it up! That's it, you've got it.
IM: And they're so supportive. I mean, it's weird but encouraging.
Then I found out the real story. Our particular section of our office building is located directly under the building's fitness center. Workers gather throughout the day for the various classes they teach and, apparently, sound carries rather well through the gym and bathrooms. I'm sure they're all very supportive people but, frankly, I was a little relieved (ha) when I discovered it wasn't aimed at me.Posted by Chris at October 1, 2013 8:01 AM | TrackBack
